Sportsman Rear Brakes
I am having trouble with my rear brakes. I have a 96 sportsman 400 and I am in the process of doing some long overdue maintenance. I rebuilt the whole front end, with no problems brakes and all. Now I am doing the back and I changed the rear brakes. They are on the center sprocket. Once I changed then I can have the adjustment screw all the way out and when I first ride they are free and when i go for a little while they are rubbing to the point that I have bad brake fade where the front brakes will not even work. I am out of ideas how to fix this besides take the pads back off and sand them down to make them thinner. I am sure they are the right pads same part number but I can not get them on without them rubbing. I compress the piston the whole way followed everything by the book, with the same result. any help on this I would appreciate. I am actually debating on just taking the pads off and using the front. The rear always need adjustment from my experience anyhow.
