1999 Yamaha Blaster Brakes Locked

Recommended Posts

I just acquired a 99 blaster. I put new break pads on the back, after I put the pads on the breaks are locked up pretty good. Any thoughts on the cause. I am a little frustrated.

Have you looked to see if the adjustment is too tight?

How do you adjust them? This is only my second time doing atv breaks. The other time was on my honda, and they were straight forward.

There should be adjustment nuts on the brake cable, just back them off until there is just a little bit of slack in the brake pedal and the brakes aren't dragging anymore.

Ok, I got the brakes fixed. They work great. The next problem is I let my friend mess with while I was at school. He did some cleaning and light service work like greased the front end and cleaned the K & N. Thats is were my problem is now. He cleaned the filter then apparently rode it before the filter was dry, and now it wont start. Is it just a simple carb clean to get it going again, or is it worse than that? He said he just rode it up and down the street like twice then parked it. Let me know guys. Thanks.

a 'little' water should make it bark and snort, but not quit. remove the filter and see if it goes. If not, pull the plug and put your thimb over the hole, kick it- see if you have good compression. It should easily push your thumb off the hole. While the plug is out, hook it to the wire, lay it on the head and kick it- look for a nice blue spark.

Make sure your fuel is new and turned on.

If you have compression, spark and fuel it should start.

It may not be the air filter at all.

Let us know

:aargh:

Got it. I took the filter off and let it set over night. While I was at it I tore the carb apart and cleaned it. Put it back together, kicked it once and it started. I love it when things work like they are supposed to. Thanks for all the suggestions guys. Marc

I noticed that you didn't mention anything about oiling your K&N, without the oil, dirt will run right through those things. You can get a K&N filter recharge kit anywhere K&N filters are sold. It will have the proper cleaning solution for your filter and the proper oil.

      recently picked up some project bikes off CL for cheap.  got a honda fourtrax (the ancient 4x4 kind with the straight axle in the front as well as the rear and a back-up kick-start)  plastics are crap, but my goal is to get running like a champ and patch the plastics up and sell to one of my many friends that want a reliable 4x4 for dirt cheap and doesnt care what it looks like.
      so the former owner says it needs carb rebuilt, but its sat for 3+ years since so who knows.  things I see:  carb is missing (he gave me a box of parts along with the bike), engine turns over and feels good with kick-start, brakes need work, battery missing (That always puts me off, cause then I know most likely someone's been tampering with the electrical.
