Hi, the lever should not go all the way down, sounds like you have air in your brake system, check your brake pads, if they are ok than bleed the rear brake system, the lever should never bottom out.

02skidoo700mxz.No ride in 2yrs. ride 15min, felt drag, brake lever solid as rock, rotor glowin orange. in 10min lever floppy to handle (no pressure). in 30min check lever, now back normal. explain??


taking that this a motor cycle then you have suffered what is known as" brake fade"
to understand the term it works like this
for brakes to work, kinetic energy ( spinning brake rotor) is converted to heat energy by the friction caused by applying the brake
this loss of kinetic energy is the braking action or the bike slowing down
normally there is enough heat transference to the passing wind but if the heat generated exceeds the heat transfer then the brakes and rotor will not absorb any more heat generated by the friction and so the brake stops working
(like oil on the pads or linings)
what cause it to happen--
there is clearance between the disc rotor and the brake pads but if the brakes are applied then the brake fluid is pushed out against the pistons and applies pressure to the rotor ( braking action)
when the brake is released the fluid is returned to the reservoir and there is no problem
BUT
if that fluid is not allowed to return fully, the brakes remain on( your brake drag) and the heat generated besides going to the air , also heats and expands the brake fluid
with nowhere to expand to , the brake is applied by the expanding fluid
AS all brake fluids are hydroscopic( absorb moisture from the atmosphere) the water in the brake fluid boils off and you loose any pressure because the system is now full of air and air compresses
when the brakes cool down the brake action comes back as the air has bled back to the reservoir
The fix is to replace the master cylinder and the brake fluid and to ensure that the calliper slides freely on the mounting rods so that it self centres over the rotor
what you have experienced is very common on heavy trucks on long down grades where the brakes over heat and fade resulting in control of the truck

I need to tighten the emergency brake cable,where is the place where the brake cable is tightened?


Hello, There are really two things to do. There is an equalizer adjustment in the rearward part of the cable to make both rear wheels operate evenly. Put on the Ebrake lightly and see if both rear brakes are applying even pressure. Adjust until they are balanced.

Then push down fully on the Ebrake lever until tight, then push down, repeat and the Ebrake reel under the dash will draw in the extra slack.

ABS - Anti-Lock Braking System And EBD -Electronic Brake-force Distribution In Plain English Posted by: Rohit Khurana March 1, 2010 in Automobile Technology
AdvertisementCarBlogIndia Technology Articles , today I will talk of one of the most talked about safety feature called the ABS And EBD. Again I will try to keep the language simple and human understandable (which non-engineers can also make some sense of), pun intended.
What Is ABS ? Anti-Lock braking System system or ABS is a safety system which prevents the wheels on a moving vehicle from locking up(or cease while rotating) while braking. ABS offers improved vehicle control over dry and especially slippery surfaces by reducing the braking distance but it can also increase the braking distance in case of loose surfaces like snow, gravel etc. Ever since the invention of ABS, it has been evolving and the recent systems not only prevent wheel locking but also electronically control the front-to-rear brake bias, which we know as Electronic brake force system, Traction control system, Emergency brake assist or Electronic stability control.
Working Of ABS
Advertisement
When brakes are applied under heavy loads, the braking pressure becomes high resulting in heavy braking or in other words locking up of wheels. The ABS overcomes this by monitoring the wheel speed and releases pressure on each wheel brake lines in the form of rapid pulses switching between different brake lines. which prevent locking-up.

Preventing lock-up under heavy braking helps the driver in maintaining control over the vehicle. In modern ABS an individual brake line is provided for each of the four wheel enabling different braking pressures for different road surfaces of the wheels.
What Is EBD ? Electronic brake- force distribution system also called as Electronic brake-force limitation is an automobile brake technology that automatically varies the amount of force applied to each of a vehicle's brakes, based on road conditions, speed, loading, etc.
EBD system is always coupled with anti-lock brake-force system. The most important function of EBD is to maintain vehicular control with variation in braking pressure applied to each wheel in order to maximize stopping power. Generally most of the weight of all vehicles is carried by the front end so the EBD ensures less braking pressure at the rear end to avoid skidding. But in some EBD's the distribution of braking pressure at the rear end is more initially when the brakes are applied before the effects of weight transfer comes into play.
Working of EBD system An EBD is a subsystem of the abs and its function is to control the effective adhesion utilization by the rear wheels. this definition has been given by SAE in its technical paper no. #920646.
Advertisement
The Antilock brake force system releases pressure in different brake lines at the time of heavy braking to prevent locking-up. The action comes in the form of releasing pressure from the braking circuit when it detects extreme and rapid deceleration in any of the four wheels in order to make sure that the driver maintains control over the steering during panic or emergency braking. For example if the wheels of a vehicle are on snow as well as asphalt then in case of emergency braking the ABS will monitor the speeds and eventually the EBD system will release less pressure for wheels on snow and more pressure for wheels on asphalt to prevent wheel lock-up

Does this model brakes front and rear at the same time when we press just front break ?


no ...you have a rear brake pedal to control the rear brake and the front is controlled by a brake lever which supplies 3/4 of all stopping power. Dont ever slam down on the rear brake pedal just apply it gradually.

When i hit rear break i get a pulsating in the front break


How strange.Do you mean a pulsating in the front brake lever.If so you've got a warped front brake disc.As you apply pressure,the spinning disc is causing the pads>pistons>brake fluid to pulsate causing you to eventurly feel it through the brake lever.Put that beast on a centre stand with the front wheel off the ground ,HK.Look straight down the bike from head to tail,concerntating on the discs.Can ya see it now.????.Check your rear disc while your there and disc bolts for tightness. Best of luck HK.PS.Please leave feedback if i've helped. Tabby..OZ.

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 .

Brake problems


Thank you for allowing me to assist you, Before we do anyhing, I need some additional information.
Please respond to the following 5 questions so that I may be able to help you better.
Is you vehicle front disc/rear drum or front disc/rear disc?
When were the brakes changed last?
If so, front or rear?
If you apply the park brake, does the vehicle move at all when you put it in gear?
Finally, I am understanding that the brake pedal goes to the floor, you have no resistance on the pedal, and the vehicle does not stop when applying the brakes. Da?
