2006 Polaris Scrambler - Problem With Brakes

Recommended Posts

Ok so i have a 2006 polaris scrambler 500 4x4 with a front brake issue. When the quad isnt running the brake handle squeezes normal. When i start it and ride the brakes act funny, i pull the handle and there is no resistance in the brakes, but if i pull the handle again they work great until i go again then ive got to repeat the process. Any help would b great!!

I have another solution that a friend showed me. Check you bearings. When you are not moving the brakes work fine. Then as you ride the loose bearing allows the wheel to wobble and push the caliper apart. So the end result is that you have to pump the brakes a few times to get the pads back against the rotor.

I fixed the bearing on the wife's quad and now she has brakes again!

      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.

      A week ago I could not even get close to starting it. But now I adjusted the valves (exhaust valve was not closed). i got it running but would not run without choke. i adjusted the float because it was to low tried starting it up again and it would not even start. So i went back and looked at the valves and the valve was now open again so i adjusted it and it started right up and ran perfect without choke. So i put it all back together thinking it was ready to go. Started it up and let it run for a little bit. i turned it off and tried starting it again there was NOTHING. took it apart and there was 0 compression and the exhaust valve was open again. I am completely lost need help PLEASE!!!:aargh:
