Question about 2007 HM CRE F250X

1 Answer

Brakes Before anyone says it. Yeah I did a search and didnt come up with what I was looking for. I reciently changed the front break line on my CR. At first manually bleed the breaks. It took forever but got the air out but the breaks still felt mushy. So I went and got a vacuum bleeder kit. Only problem is I let the fluid get too low in the master cylinder and sucked some air. So I reblead the line again got all the air out but the breaks still feel mushy. What did I do wrong?

You probably still need to bleed them more. You can also try to backwards bleed them by pushing the pads apart as far as they will go. This will push air up and out of the master cylinder. Be sure to have the cover off of it when you do this though. Hope that helps a little.

Front and rear breaks seem to be soft and not griping. Break pads are good. 2003 Dyna super glide.

Check for wear, change pads when worn. Verify no brake line leakage. Some aftermarket pads cause differences with harder metals or softer dependant on the rotors type and composition and the rotors shoes would be the reason for innacurate braking.

My son bought a 2009 fat boy and I just noticed today that his break light was staying on . I took his hand break apart enough to look at the pin and it makes no change to the light when pushing it in and...

Usually when the brake light stays on, it\'s the front brake switch that is bad.

It usually gets damaged if the front master cylinder is installed incorrectly, breaking off the little bit that works off the brake lever.

A quick test is to unsolder the switch, and touch/untouch the two wires and see if the brake light functions (goes off/on).

Where is front break switch located

Front brake light switch is located next to the hand lever for the brake. Look underneath and you should see two wires attached to a little black box. This is the mirco switch.

Rear brake switch is attached near the pivot point for the rear brake lever.
You should see two wires attached to a long cylindrical switch with a spring off one end. This is your brake light switch for the rear brakes. It may not need changing out, these are usually adjustable. As you screw them out, they make the brake light come on sooner, as you screw them in the take longer to come on.

Your front switch might need replacing, but another good idea is to check your wires for damage.

Front left side by tire has break fluid on floor. Could this be from a bleed valve that is not tight enough. Break fluid was changed 2 months ago at a Honda dealer. Just noticed this 3 week ago. Thanks...

Could be the bleed leaking, but maybe not. May be caused by a leak in line close to the caliper, or by a leaking caliper. You could try tightening the bleed, cleaning the tire and area, and looking for leaks from the caliper to the brake lever.

My break light works with my front break but not with my back brake. Any idea?

The brake light is activated by a little switch near the brake lever for the front brake, and the rear brake pedal activates a electric/hydraulic switch mounted somewhere on your frame between the rear master cylinder and the brake caliper. It has to be in line with the rear brake line so it will be easy to find by tracing the line. It will be about an inch in diameter, have one or two wires plugged into on end, and uses a special socket to remove/install, although you can get away with channel-locks if you take care. If you decide to tackle the job yourself, buy the part before hand, and don't touch the brake levers at all until the new one is installed, you should not have to bleed the brakes that way.

How to get front brake pressure after changing master cylinder, bleeding didnt help or maybe im not doing it right

vacuum bleeding is best for these brakes. To do it without a vacuum pump you must pull the handle very slowly and pause about three seconds between handle pulls to allow fluid to refill the piston chamber.

I want to up grade my xr 200 1999 front forks , better forks and disc brake what bike will do this to my xr im thinking of change over,

Think of any of the motocross bikes.You will fit the cr front ends but it is also best to change the brake master cyl. at the same time.Check the weight of the exchange bike to get it pretty close to yours.Spring sizes and weights will then give you an upgrade ride and you dont have to play around with them too much.Look in the 250 2 stroke range first.Plenty of them around and the weight is similar.Hope this helps you

Brake issue yamaha

Pump the lever 5 or 6 times w/ bleeder closed while holding lever, open bleeder close bleeder, pump the lever. Repeat as necessary - works best w/ 2 people. If you really want to get the fluid flowing fast, Loosen the banjo bolt instead of the bleeder the first couple of times. Have lotsa rags on hand..
