Can any1 help is it right my rear break lever on my hyasung ms3 125 also works my front left break

yes this is very common for dual front brakes. The thought behind this is that you will get a 60/40 split in your braking from back to front to maintain control in a braking situation.the hand brake gives you additional stopping power in a panic situations.happy riding

I have a 1983 sporster the front breaks handle is really really hard to pull it is a dule disk

Dual Disk Brake.
The problem is critical. I would not ride with this condition present. There are a couple of test I would do to determine where the problem lies. What I would be trying to determine with this test is to see if the problem is in the lever or the brake itself.... On the caliper down at the disc is a brass or stainless fitting there for bleeding the brakes. Fitting a wrench here tightly as to not damage the fitting, open the fitting. Now squeeze the brake lever. The handle should pull with almost no resistance. Fluid will squirt out. If the pull is very easy you have determined that the problem is not the handle itself and is in the caliper. A new caliper is the easiest solution however the original can be rebuilt. If the pull is still hard you need to determine if the problem is in the pivot of the lever or the internals of the master cylinder connected to the lever. I would now loosen the similar brass fitting at the Master cylinder(retighten the bleed screw at the caliper first). Lossen enough to allow fluid to leak by when you squeeze the lever. If the pull is difficult replace or rebuild the Master cylinder/lever assembly.

My yamaha ybr. Break light does not show when I use front brake,only shows when use rear brake

cor that reminds me of old days when we used to disconnect our front break light switch
so the police could not see you breaking when your speeding

any way try looking under your front break lever you will find two wires going into it just where the switch gear clamp is
failing that probably the problem lies inside your headlight

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.

I have a 05 Ultra classic where once the cruise control is set it deactivates when I hit any kind of bump in the road. After much tinkering I have found that any and I mean any slight movement in the front...

Sounds like the front brake assy. on the handle bar was removed without the card board insert installed between the front break lever and the little piston which can damage it and cause the front brake switch not to work right as the piston in the handle assy. won,t slide back and forth when the lever is moved in and out

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.

When i hit rear break i get a pulsating in the front break

How strange.Do you mean a pulsating in the front brake lever.If so you've got a warped front brake disc.As you apply pressure,the spinning disc is causing the pads>pistons>brake fluid to pulsate causing you to eventurly feel it through the brake lever.Put that beast on a centre stand with the front wheel off the ground ,HK.Look straight down the bike from head to tail,concerntating on the discs.Can ya see it now.????.Check your rear disc while your there and disc bolts for tightness. Best of luck HK.PS.Please leave feedback if i've helped. Tabby..OZ.

Jumps out of gear when brake hard

The crunching noise is the slider gear going into the chosen gear. This is normal. The false neutral is likely just a case of shift pedal
adjustment. When braking hard you probably have your toe on top of the shift lever. If so then lower the front of the shift lever one or two notches. If your toe is below the shift lever then raise the lever one or two notches. THis adjustment should fix the problem.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

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..
