I made a brake adjustment a few weeks back on my brakes for my older LT1000. After a couple of days, I hit the brake/clutch and it would hang up. Only way to get it going again was to push the brake/clutch toward the driver. It would then pop back into gear. My question is,

If I tightened the adjustment nut too tight, could it cause this to happen. Has anyone else had this happen to them?

Just curious. I haven't had time to sit back and look at it (been too busy playing with my new toys!!!). Any feedback would be appreciated.

OIL

Spray some oil on the arm and all pivot points that works the brake and see if that helps.

Been there, done that. Thats always my first line of attack, Lube it up.

I think it is the nut, but I am just curious if anyone else has had this type of issue.

Or is something adjusted overcenter? Done that before. Adjusted a little to far to compsate for wair, and a peice of linkedge goes overcenter, and does some strange, hard to find stuff.
