Brand New 450 Brakes weak
I just got a 2019 450 Sportsman. Took her on a 7 mile ride. With the break in period in mind of course. But I noticed my brakes seem weak to me. I have Combo brake lever on the left and foot rear.
Is there anything I can check or adjust? They don't necessarily feel soft or spongy. Just weak. Going slow down a hill (less than 10mph) It is hard to lock the wheels (not that its my intention for normal braking) and almost impossible at 20mph. Also when loading or unloading out of the pickup, the brakes could not assist to slow me down well to make a easy roll off.
Any suggestions? I may end up bringing to Polaris real quick if we got nothing. With brakes in mind, is a "slapping" "linkage" noise normal as I am braking, usually down hill, going slow?
