Hi m8, all the setting on the lever will do is adjust to your style of riding ,, not adjust the pads ,,sounds like the pistons on the calipers are not releasing wen the pressure is off, ,,ie brake pads are not goin back ,,if u r a every day rider ,,the salty conditions will cause seize ups,,best thing is wipp a caliper off the wheel,, dont touch the brake lines,, just undo the two caliper bolts, then undo the two screws onthe master cylinder,,reservoir,,lift off the cap, u will need some copper grease,and a small paint brush,, take the pads out, and smear some copper grease round the pistons, then prize them back in a bit,, dont push them in to far ,,just enuff, till grease to do its job,,by undoing the reservoir the air that may get pushed will be able to escape,,replace pads, and bolts, cheers

I need diagram showing how to put rear brake shoes on 1994 escort

Adjustment: 1) Start the engine and shift to Reverse. With the vehicle moving backwards, firmly depress the brake pedal several times to seat the shoes in the brake drum. Turn engine off. 2) Remove the console trim surrounding the parking brake lever. This isn't really necessary if you have a deep socket and extension. 3) Pull up on brake lever until the seventh notch is engaged, just listen and count the clicks. 4) If it is out of adjustment and you can't get the seven clicks, turn the adjusting nut located on the drivers side next to the lever. 5) Release the lever, block the front wheels, raise the rear end. Best to put on jackstands. 6) With car in neutral and brake lever released, rotate the rear wheels. The wheels should turn freely, but a slight drag is acceptable. 7) If the lever travels too far or the parking brake fails to hold the vehicle on a hill, tighten the adjusting nut a little more and recheck,

Derbi Terra 125 problem with the front brake: brake lever is very hard travels only few mm when squeezed (there's no regulation on lever) brakes are too sharp and sometimes brake pads dont free the...

Hello, Never dealt with motorcycles, still if you are sure that there is no air in the brake liquid, check whether the braking disk/pads are not hooked or (irregularly) worn-out. If this is not the case, replace the braking mechanism (the cylinder which pushes the pads), if too expensive, clean the old one and reassemble with new rubber parts. Please let me know whether I was able to assist.

adjusting the brakes will only improve their performance if when you squeeze the levers they bottom out against the handle-bars - that is, you run out of brake mechanism travel before you run out of hand strength. If that is what is happening, then you should take it back to the bike shop as they didn't get it right. On the other hand, if you are able to squeeze plenty tight without running out of travel, but the brakes aren't performing well anyway, then it seems likely that you have got something dirty, wet or slippery on the wheel rims (where the brake pads rub). If that is the case, clean the rims with something like windex. If you use Fantastic, be sure to rinse and dry. Good luck, Al K

Front brake lever has little to no play... leaving front brake with too quick of a respone for stopping.

Technically, there is no adjustment for the brake lever,the effort required or the amont of "travel". You have a very responsive lever and if someone unqualified attempts to "fix" this phenomenom, I suspect that you'll be setting yourself up for trouble. Personally, I'd find an empty parking lot and practice, practice, practice as the front brake is responsible for 70% of all effective braking.

How to adjust front brake lever on '06 hd road king?

This is by design. When you have new pads on the bike and a rotor within limits the lever has very limited travel before engaging.
As these parts wear the position of which the lever engages changes. Unless you know that at the last brake pad change the caliper was "centered" this could account for the travel and will result in premature wear on the components.

Possibly 2 problems m8.
If the brake-lever travel has increased then it either wasn't bled up properly or it's allowing air past the seals in the master-cylinder.
Try tying the lever back to the bar overnight to bring any air in the system up to the top (resevoir) and see if the brakes stay good, if not they'll need bleeding again.
Check for any leaks around all the banjo connections, up at the bars and down at the calipers, plus have a close inspection of the master-cylinder piston area for leaks.
The juddering might be down to a warped disc or two, get the front wheel off the ground and spin the wheel to check for this visually or with a stick and pointer.

Rear brakes don't work on 1996 goldwing

Yes the rear pedal operates the front RH disk as well.
When you bleed the brake do the front RH disk calliper first then the rear calliper.
Check that the pads are not beyond useful life and the not stuck.
