SOURCE: front brake lever spongy,not operating brake

Gravity bleed front brake. no lever pumping. Looden cap on master cylinder, front wheen straight ahead, open bleeder and watch for air being expelled. When only fluid is coming out, close bleeder. Expect the front pads totake a few miles to seat, They will improve as they wear in. Good Luck / be safe.

SOURCE: the brake light stays and will not operate with

I'm assuming that you are saying that the brake light is staying on and neither the front nor rear brake lever makes any difference.

Check the postition of the front master cylinder and the throttle control switch housing. They must be positioned so that they are snug against each other. If there is too much distance between the switch housing and the master cylinder, the little brake light switch will be constantly in the outward postion turning on the brake light. Depressing either lever will have no effect.

If that's not the problem, go to the rear brake lever and check the adjustment of the rear brake lever. It must have some freeplay so that the rear master cylinder returns all the way when you let off the brake. If not, the rear brake will get tighter and tighter as you ride and use the brake.

Good Luck

How do i adjust hand break new shoes fitted on a smart for two hand break lever is all the way uo ?

Adjusting the Hand Brake is quite easy

At the bottom of the Hand Brake Lever , you will see the cable with like nuts (teeth) on the cable locked by the lock on the lever it self, you will need to open the lock , take the cable off the lock , drop the handle down and put the cable back on the lever and lock it.

That is how the hand brake is adjusted on the Smart car 2002 model

What is causing my rear brake light not working on a derby Mulhacen 125 ?/

both brakes have their own brake light switch ,the rear one will be near the lever and have two wires going to it.debi is Spanish and they sometimes use hydraulic switches so this is a little trickier to change then a normal mechanical switch, you may need to bleed the brake after you have changed it.

Yamaha xt 125 rear brake light not working

Hi, Anonymous before diagnosing any brake light issue always check the bulb and fuse first for integrity a brake light staying on is usually caused by the front brake light switch, which is mechanical, not disengaging. On early models moving the throttle control housing closer to the front brake master cylinder is the main fix. On late models, the switch gets tweaked and needs to be realigned. A brake light that does not come on when the brake lever is applied can be caused by a faulty switch or no continuity in the wiring at the switch. The rear brake light switch is hydraulic and it is extremely rare to malfunction in a closed circuit condition causing the brake light to stay on. Usually, rear brake light switch issues are caused by no brake pedal free play or a sticky rear master cylinder piston. A brake light that does not come on when the rear brake pedal is depressed can be caused by a faulty switch, air contamination in the brake line, or no continuity in the wiring at the switch.

Hi i have just baught a gz 125 y marauder only to find that the cable for the rear brake is sticking, which is keeping the rear brake pads pushed against the drum. Will i have to buy a new cable and if so,...

hi, you could try lubricating the cable first with some lite oil, or wd40 or similar, are you sure it is the cable and not the brake shoe cam, try undoing the cable, push manualy on the arm from the rear brake drum, doing this will eliminate the cable being the possible cause, when you push on the lever on the rear brake drum with the cable undone from it, the arm should return freely when pushed or pulled, if it is seized at this point you will have to remove the rear wheel,remove the lever from the cam drift out cam from hub, and clean and lubricate before reasembly, when replacing the cable it is important you alow at least 10mm free play in travel, and check for free movment of wheel before use, also ensure you have enough travel to alow operation of rear brake light.

Rear brake light not working

The brake light is turned on and off by either of two switches on your bike. The front brake lever has a switch located in the right handlebar switch housing. When you squeeze the lever, a pad on the lever moves forward allowing the switch button to move forward making contact which in turn switches the brake light on.

The rear brake lever operates a plunger inside the rear brake master cylinder that pressurizes the rear brake and rear brake hose and line. The rear brake line has a tee fitting in it along it's run with a pressure switch in the tee. Once the pressure on the line gets high enough, the switch turns on the brake light.

If your rear brake light switch is not working, check to make sure the wires are on the prongs of the switch. If they are, replace the switch. It simply screws out and a new one screws in. Most of the time you don't have to bleed the brakes as long as you don't move the rear brake pedal with the switch out. Check the rear brake for proper operation prior to riding the bike.

Good Luck

The rear drum brakes:
  • Have internal shoes that expand against the brake drum (1126).
  • Are a single-anchor type.
  • Are actuated by one rear wheel cylinder (2262).
  • Have two pistons in the rear wheel cylinder (2261). One exerts force against the upper end of the primary shoe; the other exerts force against the upper end of the secondary shoe.
  • Adjust rear brake shoes and linings (2200) automatically.
  • Need manual brake adjustment if the adjusters are not operating properly or after the rear brake shoes and linings have been replaced.
When the brake pedal is applied, hydraulic fluid pressure forces the pistons in the rear wheel cylinder outward, moving the rear brake shoes and linings against the brake drum.
The rear drum brake system includes the parking brake mechanism. Refer to Section 206-05 .
