1998 YAMAHA BIG BEAR 350 4WD-replacing brakes

Recommended Posts

Hello, the ATV doesn't stop anymore so I guess it is time to replace the brakes. Looking for part number and instructions. I think it may have shoes front + back and the front would be hydraulic.

Thanks, I checked the front brakes and pads look okay. Not sure why stopping isn't very good.

I adjusted the brake handle and when I engage the brakes the handle still has a lot of resistance but the brakes don't stop well.  I saw another post here with the same issue and they suggested to adjust the shoes. I took my brakes apart and the adjusters are seized. I tried to figure out how they work so I loosened the side that is in the wheel cylinder and removed it but there is no thread to go in or out so I don't know how they work. I sanded the pads a bit to get them rough. Reassembled and same issue.

That one had front hydraulic drums, right?  Been a while since I was in to one of those.  If the handle is stiff and not providing any braking I'd suspect the wheel cylinders are partially seized.  If it were a squishy handle I'd suspect the master cylinder o-rings were bad.

      So i have an old yamaha bear tracker that was given to me from an old farmer I know. I decided to refurbished it and fix all the quick fixes on it. I am pretty sure that it is either a 1999 or 2000 based upon the original wiring harness. Little did i know when I bought a new to me wiring harness from ebay that it was from a 2003 or 2004. My question to everyone is do I need to have all the stop switch assemblies hooked up? I think there are three on the 03/04 models and only one on the 1999 to 2000. Any help I can get for this would be great. I haven't run it yet due to the motor and crankcase is in two totes.
