Need some help with brakes.

Recommended Posts

My dad's Fourtrax has no front brakes when you first pull it, but when he pumps it 5 or 6 times it does just as good as a new one. We had the brakes bled and it didn't do any good. Any ideas?

I don't know unless you have a bad master cylinder. Your not losing fluid are you?

Sorry it took so long to reply, but thanks for the help! Oh, and it's not leaking fluid, so it could be any of those things ZacUSNYR mentioned?

Thanks for the replys!

How are the Pads????? When you Squeeze the Lever can you see movement in the Caliper??? I would start with a Master Cylinder Rebuild if all else Fails....Then move onto the Caliper and Rebuild it....Might think about changing the brake line as well :confused:

      Hi Guys,
      I have a small Sled Dog business and I train up to 14 Huskies pulling a Yamaha Grizzly 550, that is quite a lot of Horse (Dog) power. Sometimes in order to make the ride smoother for Dogs and us we ride in Neutral but on a few occasions I have noticed that the right hand (front) brake seems to loose pressure and does not brake at all. Is there a particular reason for this ? Is it a fault or is it something to do with us riding in neutral, I only use the ATV in this way a few months a year before the snow comes but I am sure I recall the same thing happening last season.
      Any ideas would be greatly appreciated because I am a far way from being a mechanic.....
      Have a super day and thank you all.
