Try putting the bike on the center stand and get the front wheel off the ground with a floor jack. Spin the front wheel by hand and press on the rear brake pedal. The front wheel should stop. Likewise with the bike on the center stand and the rear wheel off the ground you should be able to lock the rear wheel with the foot pedal. On many Goldwings the rear pedal also operates one front disc. This is for people that refuse to use there front brakes to stop or slow there bike (80% to 90% of your stopping power is the front brake). Try bleeding the entire system front and back, you may just have air in the system. If the rear brake still does not work you may have a bad delay valve in the system. If you need to take the bike in to a shop, try to find a mechanic that is familiar with the system so they do not replace parts unnecessarily. That way you minimize your shop time and maximize your riding time.

Tip

Adjusting your rear drum brakes on an older truck


Now some of the newer units you can just go to a parking lot and go in reverse and press down on the brake pedel till it stops a few times, but for some of the older rigs out there you will need a jack, a flat head screw driver and put your truck in neutral. Lift up the *** end of that rig and crawl under so that you are facing the inside of the rear tire. On the inner side of the drum brake assembly (picture a flat round man hole cover with a thumb hole), there will be a small oval or round rubber plug (remember to brush/poke if its dirty or rusty) take it off and you will notice a wierd little wheel gear, take your flat head screw driver and turn it over and over, this will cause the brakes to expand and eventually catch the wall of the drum brake- now since you are in nuetral spin the tire if it cannot then your brakes are set on the drum, turn it a few less revelations so that it will turn the wheel freely again,Be sure to do both sides(rear tires) then remember that process and how long it took you to do it and go to the other side, and turn that side less as well so that your tire will spin- now set your truck down and take that bastard for a test run- you will notice the rear brakes grabbing! and actually working! Don't forget to put the rubber plug back on to prevent moistur damage. Good luck and as always grab a neighbor and some beer and you guys can figure it out.

2005 Dodge Ram 1500 4x2 - Drivers side front wheel feels like it is catching on something.


Have you not looked over the brakes & even taken
things apart, looking for & eliminating brakes as an issue?
Checked drive axles,joints,etc.
Tires won't make a noise & brakes are not near the wheel,
to touch anything
New wheel hubs are ruined by mechanics obsessed with those
air driven impact guns,you need to use a torque wrench on the
axle nut of a new bearing

1998 FORD CONTOUR,ROUGH GETTING IT TO START, BUT DOES, SOUNDS SEMI-NORMAL ONCE IT IS GOING, DRIVES IN REVERSE NORMAL, BUT AS SOON AS IT IS PUT INTO A FORWARD GEAR (D,1,2) CAR DIES INSTANTLY, LIKE SOMEONE...


this sounds like a brake issue and usually the emergency brake..lift rear of car to see if the wheels will turn if one does turn .remove tire and loosen brake bleeder screw to see if you can release brake pressure.after that tighten bleeder screw and remove brake drum.if the wheel has disc brakes you will need to remove emergency brake cable if it is too tight to remove you need a new one anyway so take a hack saw and cut the cable at the brake unit

Vibration in the rear on my 2005 doge dakota 4x4 when i reach 50 mph and up whay could cous this to happen? put brand new tires on got them balenced and ever thing and it still does it.


Could be a bent rim , or bent axle. easiest way to check is to have someone drive behind you and watch for wheel wobble.
If I was mounting your new tires and saw a bent rim while balancing , I would have told youabout it.

Clicking noise in left rear wheel when driving down the street in my 2003 Cavalier. About in sync with wheel RPM's.


most likely a rock or possibly from a drive way or road construction jammed in tire tread could be a nail or screw, no your tire will most likely not loose pressure quickly due to new compounds used in new tires

Were do you adjust handbrake crv r/h drive 2003


dear in most cases it will be very hard to reach adjuster but there is another way to get ur hand brake better

required tools

1- lift jack "big one"
2- proper wrench
3- car supports for safety
4- screw driver


now u have to do the following:-

1- lift up the car from the rear middle but be sure it is in NORMAL gear and hand brake is down
supports for front tires is highly recommended
2- remove both of your rear wheels put wheels under the car as if suddenly car fall it will fall on tires and nothing bad will happen
3- put car supports and both sides of rear Axle for more safety
4- now u can see your brake discs, near center of brake discs u will find a removable knob remove it by screw driver and see in side u will see the hand brake clutch push it by ur screw driver towards the center of the wheel until the maximum u can get
5- repeat last step for the other brake disc
6- restore the knob push it hard using screw driver
7- fix ur tires back, remove supports, lower the car and u r as good as new

hope this will help

regards

Thumping noise when braking - 2001 Sienna


Could be a number of things that you cannot "see".

First, make sure the tire pressures are within the van manufacturers specifications. The tire pressure label will be on the driver side door pillar on a little sticker. Also confirm that the tires haven't been replace with an overly greater / lesser size.

Broken radial belts inside the tires are another cause - and is also dangerous if the tire heats up enough - it's a blowout waiting to happen.

Check for ANY unusual "ripples" on the inner and outer sides of the tires, and for any unusual wear patterns.

Putting the tires on a balancer will NOT show these tire problems.

You could try narrowing the problem down to a particular tire, and putting the spare on and see if the problem goes away.

Also, I have seen "off brand" or "blem" tires do this a lot.
