Quick question - have you ever changed the fluid in the rear end? If so, did you use wet brake fluid to refill it? Using regular rear end fluid really messes up the brakes.

also you need to adjust both the foot and hand brake properly

Monkey is there a good place to find this? My hand brake works great but the foot brake sucks. Better luck putting my feet on the ground like Fred Flintstone!!!

they both operate the same friction discs, you probably just need to screw in the wing nut on the rear lever that the rear foot brake cable goes to

It should be covered in the operators manual.....sorry kinda busy or I'd give the factory procedure

Any tractor fluid suitable for wet brakes or clutches. Napa

Or if you are unsure... get the Kawasaki stuff from your dealer. You only need one quart. You'll have to change your discs first. There's no saving them.

Its probably your friction discs, mine are gone as well so they're on my to do list, I hate having no back brake because I use it a lot to set the bike up for tight turns on the trails.
They're going to cost me $42 each here :eek: don't know what they cost over there?
