welcome to the forum. is there brake fluid in the hand brake reservoir? if not look for a leak. if so, my guess is that the master cylinder needs rebuilding or replacing. remember that the hand brake controls front and back brakes and you said the rear ones with the foot brake worked.

Stendori, long time no see. The 85 model had a cable operated rear brake system, unlike the hydraulic as you are used to.

That being said they were marginal at best( from my experiences) they either didn't work at all, or the locked up when applying them. They HAD to be in gear also. My advise would be take the rear caliper apart and make sume it will move correctly internally.

I didnt't mean you have been absent for a period of time, I meant me. I use to post a lot but havent been around for the past 7 years or so. For some reason I decided to stop in again and check it out. Just saying hello.

Sorry to hear about OPT. I remember when he started posting here, about around the same time I was getting my shop going. Sad to hear about him passing.

well I'm glad you did stop by glad your shop is doing good. I remember the good help you gave and glad you still around again. I basically set OTP up in the role as "Polaris ask and expert" professional as his knowledge from working on Polaris for 20+ years was unmatched. I have been lurking and checking in to make sure all as well as the Polaris moderator. no worries your expertise in the atv world is always welcome. thanks Harley!!!
