YFM50 brakes

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone had advice for me on adjusting the brakes on my sons Raptor 50. I change the shoes no problem. I dont have any binding or overheating etc. The main issue I have is that the handle itself is still pretty stiff for him to operate. I turned the adjustment screw/locknut near the lever to be as loose as I can. Is there some other way to adjust the tension? These are simple cable operated drum brakes. I saw a spring and nut on the back side of the drum where the cable connects but didnt know if that was adjustable. The brakes work well its just a pretty tough pull for a 5 year old.


Any thoughts appreciated.
