I am now working on the braking system of my 97 / 98 Diesel D-bat, I need some help here, as I don't have service manual the rear brake system has 2 caliper's and the shoes are rusted right down to the steel, the bolts to hold them on to the disc are missing front brake has a caliper on each wheel and works by a brake leaver on the left side of the handle bars this works all four calipers, the right brake leaver is missing and looks like it controlled a brake to the gear shaft area. any help with this would be great as I am in Ireland and this type of ATV is not at all common.

Jembo,
Thanks for the wiring diagram.
Like you my next thing to look at is brakes but where do you get parts in the uk? have you found anywhere?
I know that the discs look "dished" but maybe they will be ok if I can get some new pads, I stripped and rebuilt the gearbox output shaft brake but could not get the pads out as they put them in with blind pins (there are a few messages on here about them)
Is that brake assembly missing from yours?

Hi Kevin no I have everything on the brakes except 4 long bolts to hold on the rear 2 calipers to the disc, the front left and right calipers I dont about yet as I have not removed the wheels, I also think I may need the left brake leaver, I dont live in the UK and dont get parts here, I live in Ireland I think there is a Polaris dealer in the kerry area thats more south of the map of Ireland, but I am not looking forward to the braking system and I tried to undo the calipers on the back and there all jammed up.

Cheers

Jimmy

Just fixing up a 1997 6x6 D-Bat myself. Did you get yours fixed up? Mine has a brake lever on the left handlebar that operates the front wheel calipers, and a right hand brake lever on the handlebars that operates the two calipers on the centre axle. There is a small caliper that is a transmission brake and this is operated by a foot pedal on the right hand foot well.
