Question about 2007 Qlink Legacy 250

1 Answer

1. the front disc brakes are grabbing. When going down hill if I back off on the throttle the bike will slow down significantly. How do I adjust the front brakes to solve this problem. P.S. It also caused me to dump the bike when I grabbed the brakes to stop fast. They locked up! 2. There is a lot of surface rust forming on the screws and bolts.

This could be a few concerns.Your front brake line could be restricted, your caliper could be seizing, or your master cylinder could be failing.You have said that there is a lot of surface rust forming.I would definitely start off by flushing the brake system, tell me if that improves the braking or not.It also wouldn't hurt ti spray some rust inhibitor on all the pivot points on the handlebar either.Get back to me , thanks...

    There are two retaining bolts that hold the caliper on, then you can compress the caliper and replace the pads.If the caliper depress fairly easily, then there are no reasons to replace it.Be sure to bleed the brake system after replacing the pads.

    There is no adjustment on the disc brake system on the front of the motorcycle, they are hydraulic.

Rear brakes don't stop bike


That could be a couple of things.
1. the brake pads are worn down too far. 2. or the brakes are out of adjustment.

Basically I'm losing a lot of corner speed, when turning into corners. I shut the throttle off too early and it feels like I'm carrying the bike round the corner. If adjust the throttle mid bend,...


You need to accelerate very gently while you go round the corner. This sounds wrong but even if you hold the throttle in the same position, physics dictates that as you go round the corner you do actually accelerate as you go round a corner at a constant speed (velocity/direction/speed - look it up if your interested!).
So on the approach to any corner, you need to: -
1 Position yourself and the bike for the approaching bend, toward the right hand side of your lane for left hand bends and vice versa.
2 Adjust your speed to one you can quite happily ride around your bend (Slow down by easing off the throttle or appling the brakes)
3 Once at the right speed, (off the brakes) select the right gear for the speed your doing.
4 GENTLY apply some throttle to stop the bike slowing down anymore.
5 Tip the bike into the corner by gently pushing on the left bar for left handers or vice versa keeping the throttle still so that you hold your speed through the corner.
6 As the bend opens up (becomes a straight) gently apply more throttle as you release the pressure on the bar and stop turning.
If you want to keep improving your riding skills, sign up to a advanced riding course. They are for people who enjoy riding and want to be safer and consequently faster.
Good luck with your riding and enjoy!

2001 vmax My throttle has alot of play in it, which I can adjust, but when I get the bike warm, it won't stay at an idle. The idle will creep up to about 2500 rpm. Almost like the throttle cable...


Try lubing your cables and throttle mechanism first. Do your adjustment when the bike is warm. It sounds like you're making one of the cables too tight.

Are you able to adjust the spring tension on the brake arms? It sounds like there it too much friction in the cable, try lubricating the cable.

I'm trying to adjust front disc brake on 2005 Yamaha ttr 125. The problem is I'm not getting enough stopping power. Too much play in the brake lever. Depresses all the way but doesn't lock up the front...


I strongly suspect you have air in the brake lines. Bleed the brakes and go from there. Of course there may be other issues, but this is where I would start.

FRONT DISC DISTOTION


No it is not common, you are using the front brake to much or the caliper is stuck. Get the front wheel off the ground and turn the wheel see if the wheel turns freely if it does then your not using the brakes properly. However if it does turn free ride it warm up the brakes and check the front wheel again. If it sticks when it is up in the air then you know your problem is the caliper sticking or if it is cableoperated you could have a frayed cable. also check that the rear brakes are adjusted so it grabs before the front brakes. ope this helps and get back to me if you need more help Thanks for using fixya.

Trailer brakes not activating very well, I have to have the brake controller turned up to 9.0 to get a good grab on trailer brakes 2005 f250- stock w/ tow command 14'x6' cargo trailer


Most likely the brake pads are bad and the drums need to be turned the magnets are not able to lock the shoes in place. You may want to adjust the brake shoes firs, if the shoes have worn down then it will not brake without an adjustment. Jack up one side at a time and turn the Star up in the slot on the back of the brake plate adjust till you feel the wheel start slightly grabbing back off one click then do other side, see if they work by pulling the trailer and using the electric brake only see if it slows down your truck when you apply the manual brake bar on front of the electric brake. Does it slow you down? Yes? then you got it fixed if no then you will have to remove the drums and see if the surface is uneven where the magnets go. hope this helps let me know if you need more information.
