Can any1 help is it right my rear break lever on my hyasung ms3 125 also works my front left break


yes this is very common for dual front brakes. The thought behind this is that you will get a 60/40 split in your braking from back to front to maintain control in a braking situation.the hand brake gives you additional stopping power in a panic situations.happy riding

The brakes will no tighten up on the wheel


You have to adjust the break cable..
Loosen the little nut that hols the cable at the break.. Pull the cable out a little bit with pliers.. Tighten the nut at the break..
Thus taking a little bit of slack out of the cable and now the break will work properly..

Have a great day !

Even when driving the car the break light stays on


hello sir, its not a big problem at all, just a simple wire/switch breakdown.
u can fix it urself.
there will be a tag like leaver wire connected to the break leaver,

whenever this switch/connection is broken the light glows, that is when the break is applied the connection will b brooken hence light glows.

now ur case, this connection is broken, if u can re-tag it to its place then u can slove it urself..

!! just have a look u can easily understand the setup urself, no need for any explaination.

thank u sir, if u feel the solution is worth, then plz vote/rate me.

thank u !!

I am trying to get the hand break attached


there is a screw in adjustment to allow you to install it, screw both ends if they both are adjustable, then you can reattach, after than screw each end back out to adjust. Hope this helps you! and Merry Christmas!
