Default rear Brake shoe recommendations for bayou 220

Well I have the Bayou back together and am now i running it to find what other bugs it has. One found so far is the rear brake is not effective at all to the point of not being usable. I should first take things apart I know and see whats up but I thought I would ask here first what you have run for rear shoes. I care less about wear rate than grip as being a road rider I am dissapointed in the brakes the atv has , .I know it is a drum brake setup but don't ATV's need to stop also? Yes I did adjust them but need to take them apart to make sure they are assembled correctly.

Looking through my catalog I see Dp has one that is listed as "replacement" and if GF rated
The next one I looked at was EBC 706 and 706G, the G just means the friction materials have diagonal slices to allow dirt,mud,dust and water a place to go. Is this enough of an issue I should go with grooves? part of my brain says but then I have less contact are with the cuts.
I also could not find a friction rating on any but the Dp shoes so I have no way to compare.

I also looked at Moose but SBS,Braking and EPI did not offer any options. and none other

The main thing with drum brakes is having them working properly. The pivot shaft in the backplate can stick, as it rusts in contact with aluminium. Emerying the shaft and greasing it makes a big difference, Cables, etc, need to be working smoothly, and any water in the drum is death to the brakes. It seems like a good idea to seal water out, but if any does get in it stays there, and the brakes never work right again until you strip and dry everything out.

Yes I will take it apart and see what I have going on first, maintenance is #1 priority. Do you have any opinion on the grooved vs non-groved version? think one has a advantage?

We are just starting to play with the atv so as of now there is no water or mud to worry about but I assume that will change as soon as we get another atv and start finding new riding areas.

Update the cables were not properly adjusted so I did make them much better, the shoes are still serviceable so I will pick up some new ones soon but I have a little time. More test rides first!
