Rear Brake

I have to push my rear brake down way too far for it to engage. I have it adjusted all the way so it should be working and there are good pads in it. Is there a possibility that the spring is worn out or should I bleed it and see if that helps? Thanks for the help.

bike is an 01 250 exc

did you adjust the linkage to the master cyl or the brake pedal height bolt?

Bleed the fluid and change it out and you will usually get a much firmer pedal.


Both the brake pedal and master cylinder bolt are fully adjusted. I have push the pedal down probably 2 or more inches and then the brakes work fine. I'm pretty sure the busings are bad too because there is a lot of play from left to right but I can live with that.
