Crap brakes!

Recommended Posts

Is it common for brakes on these china(apollo) bikes to suck. Brand new, the rear master cyl on mine was machined poorly, needed a new one. Both front and rear are air free and they will not lock either wheel! Is this just the way they are?

Yes, it is a gray area for usefulness and durability. Some of the better constructed pitbikes have better quality brakes, others, not so much. Personally, I'd like to think that the brake lines are prone to premature deterioration and failure, meaning the internals swell under pressure.

You'd probably be better off swapping out the brake lines for better quality stainless braided lines, and hope that the master cylinders and calipers can withstand the upgrade...
