You will need to check the pads are not worn out then bleed the brake lines, by pumping the lever then opening the bleed valves on the calipers, keep doing this until pressure come back, and keep topping up the master cylnder reserve so it doesnt **** more air in.

What is the proper way to bleed the brakes on this bike with ABS?


Hi,I had a yamaha fj1200 that had abs and when bleading the brakes I just blead the brakes in the normal way,I found that it makes it easyer to blead,open resouveor cap and top up and put a rag around the resouvor to protect any paintwork then get a bungie tie and slowly pump the brake lever slowly as not to creat lots of air bubbles in the system,then rap the bungie around the lever and handle bar to keep the lever pulled in,then go to the back caliper and put the tube in a glass and fill with brake fluid untill it covers the end of the tube,put the other end on the blead nipple a slowly open the nipple just so you can see the fluid coming out,when it stops flowing tighten the blead nipple and do this again untill all the air is out and you have clean fluid coming through,the do the same to the front,job done.
there is a self bleading tube with a valve on the end so that the air dose not go back in the system,there is also a brake bleading system on the market that is a self bleading system where you have tube that connects to the resouvor with its own lid, and a tube that runs from that to a bottle which you put the brake fluid in,and a tube runs from that to a connector like the one that is on a foot pump,that connects to a wheel wich supplies the presure to push the fluid through the system,so with this system all you have to do is open the blead nipple and lock it again when done.
I hope this was some help.
Ive explaned it becouse not every one knows how to do this,so sorry if im telling you how to suck eggs.

Brake Light Switch Problems


Several front disc brake model bikes have a release button type switch snuggly mounted under the lever bracket, offering no adjustment. When levers wear a little and start to slop at idle, the brake light can often flicker in unison or remain on as the stopper bar is out of alignment to the tiny button head. To stop this problem without having to source a new lever and bracket, slip a valve cap over the stopper bar. The cap can be easily shaved down with a blade on one side to allow any adjustments.6e3f678.jpg

Hard stopping the 1992 venture yamaha when coming to a syop the bike doesnt brake well


check the brake caliper pistons are free ! push pads back and press lever to see they move back against the pads , also are the pads worn out as they will over heat , check this and are you using 60 % front and 40 % brake pressure when riding ?

"I have a 95 Kawasaki vn 800 the front brake


Try bleeding it, if that doesnt work you will need a new master cylinder/ master cylinder rebuild kit, brake seals or brake line, depending on whats leaking. The master cylinder and brake line can come off ANY bike as long as they are the right length (brake line) or fit on the handle bars (master cylinder)

Rear tail light stays on all the time. Is this normal (new bike for me), meaning is the light supposed to come on BRIGHTER when the brakes are applied and that function is broken, or is the light supposed...


Good news. Mine did the same thing. There should be a running light and a "brake" light all within the same bulb. Check the switches on the front brake lever and the rear brake lever. Both actuate the rear brake light. You can usually do a quick test by pushing the brake lever on the handlebar all the way out and see if the light goes out. This is what my problem was. If you poke around you will see a switch on both brake levers. Make sure they are pressed in when your not pulling (handle bar lever) and pushing (right foot brake lever). You will see a switch with a little rod on it, when you press the foot break/pull the hand brake, it will come all the way out. That is when the light comes on. Hope this helps.

I have an old Avanti Edge Cro-Mo bike. I know the brakes are on the right handle bar but not sure how to upshift and downshift gears.


If this is the road bike model, then most likely the shifter and brake lever are the same. To brake pull back on the lever, to shift move the lever toward the center of the bike.

The Right lever works the REAR gearing. This makes small changes. The bigger lever will shift the gears toward a larger gear and make the cycling easier. The small lever works the opposite.

The Left lever works the FRONT gearing. This makes large changes. The Bigger lever will shift the gears toward a larger gear and makes the cycling harder. The small lever works the opposite.

If you don't have these types of levers, I can give you different instructions but the essentials of big lever/ small lever and Right/ Left are the same.

How to fit a odyssey g3 gyro set


Hi MonkeyManTim

Firstly, remove the centre lock nut on the stem. This loosens the stem/headset. Pull the handlebars up and rest them next to the front wheel, make sure the brake cables aren't being stretched too much.

You'll see there is a locknut on the headset (at the top of the frame/top tube where you pulled the stem from) and loosen this (might need a massive spanner!).

Pull offthe toppart of the headset, ball races and lower part. Replace with the gyro bottom and top parts. Grease the ball bearing if they aren't already!

Slide it together, fit the stem and you'll notice the brake lines that come with it. Undo the rear brake, run the splitter cable from the front lever to the top half of the gyro, same with the bottom half. I found putting some padded stickytape on the bars helped here as the splitter cable would 'ting' off the bars.

Undo the front brake and run it through the stem hole, through the forks and cable tie it to one fork leg.

Test the brakes, adjust where necessary and on you go pulling bar-spins for fun. Please don't land a jump with the bars half spun, it hurts....a lot!!

MY BIKE HAS A SIX INCH STRETCH I GOT EVERYTHING HOOKED UP I BLED THE BRAKES AND IT IS STILL NOT WORKING AT ALL


hi,i am assuming you have no front brakes,bleed the master cylinder before you try the calipers,to do this,simply pump up some brake pressure with the lever,hold the lever against the bar (fully applied)then crack the banjo bolt that holds the brake line onto the master cylinder,you should see air escape,retighten the banjo bolt,repeat the procedure untill all the air is gone,it doesnt take much air to stop the master cylinder working,once you have the master cylinder bled,then rebleed the calipers in the normall fashion,dont forget to put a rag down to protect the paint on your fuel tank,brake fluid loves paint...hope this helps,,cheers

2002 HD Dyna Super Glide front brake noise at low speed until slight pressure applied to brake lever


If it sounds like "swish-swish" noise, that is nornal for your bike. HD changed the front brakes in the 90's and the result was better stopping performance but there is that darned swishing sound. Don't worry about it, mate, there's nothing wrong with your bike.

Now, if you start to hear squealing when you pull the lever, take the bike to a shop to have the brakes pads replaced. If you feel vibration when you apply the brakes, take it to a shop immediately and have them check the wheel spokes for tightness.

How do I operate 10 speed road bike?Schwinn La Tour How do I change gears


the gear lever on the left controls the front derailleur which will have two different size sprockets...when you first start to ride you want it on the smaller of the two. The gear lever on the right controls the back or rear derailleur with a gear cluster of five small to increasing larger sprockets...when first starting to ride you want that on the largest one .....five in the rear and two in the front (5x2=10 variable speeds to chose from). as you increase speed slowly lift up (because this lever will be located down) on the right shifter to help maintain an even speed to help you go faster..when your on the smallest gear in the back and want to go even faster then pull down on the left shifter to go to the larger sprocket you are now in ten gear.When coming to a stop reverse the shift levers and repeat...if the chain rides off the sprockets when shifting especially in the front derailleur it means the shift guide is bent to far to one side or you derailleur needs adjusting same goes for the rear..there are two little screws stops with springs that you use to make these fine adjustments. My family owned a Schwinn shop, i was a mechanic for a good 12 years and i havent heard the name La tour in a long time i owned one myself and have a traveler still today. Tip..keep chain lubed, WD-40 will work fine, and also lube the gear cables with a light grease...also dont rotate the handle bars up for easier comfort because in an emergency stop situation all your weight will transfer to the brake levers and you fly forward over the handle bars.
