2015 sportsman 570 brake help
 
I just picked up a 2015 sportsman 570 and it needs a little bit of help. the previous owner I believe was trying to make a mud bike out of it and he removed the brakes in order to turn the wheels around to get a wider stance.

I have the two front calipers and disc I do not have the rear caliper or disc I also do not have the bolts that hold on the brake lines.

I'm thinking I should just buy new calipers and rotors all the way around. Is there a certain brand that would be comparable to OEM? I'm not a mud Rider, I do ride in mud but I'm not a strict mud Rider mainly use my four-wheeler for hunting in Florida. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...b283892a4b.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...6c9c3ab833.jpg

If your machine in NOT a touring model, it will only have one brake caliper on the rear axle.
In your pictures it appears that you should have two rear calipers.
I will take pictures of mine on Saturday if you can wait that long.
Look for a service manual for that machine. There is a sticky on that subject in this forum and I know that the 2014 manual is available. (shouldn't be a lot of difference for 1 year)

Wow! Just when I think I've seen it all then something like that shows up.
Never seen anything like that before.
How was the guy stopping it?
I guess if it stays buried neck-deep in a mudhole all the time stopping isn't an issue??

The rear caliper takes 2 lines on this machine.

It has engine brake so it's like going from 5th gear to first gear.

I've got engine braking and ADC and that'll only slow you down a little. It won't stop you by any stretch.

You haven't even seen the best parts yet.

All wheel lugs are gone and replaced with standard bolts from home Depot

Nails in place of cotter pins for axle nuts.

Clutch cover has tapcons in place of factory bolts.

Front storage lid was screwed shut with 3" wood screws

Brake lights taken out and wires cut

Gauge cluster taken out

Breather hose from clutch cover gone

Some kind of bracket welded on the back, looks like my 6 year old did it.

Well, looks like you may have bought a "Parts" machine. The previous owner certainly did some "Work" on this on.
It can always be fixed, but at what cost.
Are the banjo fittings on the brake lines damaged? You might need to replace those too. Is there even any brake fluid left in the master cylinder?
I will take pictures of of mine where you have pictures of yours so you can get some idea of where to start.
However, I do not have the touring model. Best of luck!

Holy shyte dude I hope you got a good deal because I wouldn't touch that quad with a 10 foot pole.
