Question about 2004 Yamaha YZ 450 F
Ran over small tree the diameter of a quarter and the tree got jammed between the brake caliper and the nerf bars. after 10 minutes i got my quad free but the brakes don't work now. i bled the brake line and a little air came out but didn't fix problem. i don't think the master cylinder is bad bc the brakes worked fine before. i was going to bleed the system totally. maybe the caliper is bad. how do you check
The caliper probably got torqued and slightly twisted by the tree. This would restrict movement of the brake pad. No movement - no brakes. Pull the caliper and look at the pad as you apply the brake. No movement of the brake pad? Replace the caliper.
