Welcome to Bluetraxx!!!

The Blaster's brakes are notorious for being a bad setup!! They should have been hydralic straight from the factory, but unfortunately there not! The rear brakes aren't your primary brakes to use to get stopped fast. I usually use my front brakes and tap my rear's to get stopped quickly.

But, if money is no object, there is a rear hydralic brake assembly in Dirt Wheels. I see it in there just about anytime I look through, but I dont have one handy right now so I can't tell ya the name of the company!

I have to say that while the breaks on the Blaster are not the best I don't have issue with them. I ride it for all it's worth and hang with the big boys and have to use the break now and then ;=) I don't usually use the rear breaks anyway, I tend to use the front.

adjust them of replace them. take apart the caliper and heabily oil everything and replace some parts. as for the frons...adjust them or get new pads. these things require regular maintnence.

just take em apart and clean them real good with brake cleaner, take the brake pads out and lube the housing with a little grease. then adjust them so that they almost rub without hitting the brakes, i did this with mine and theyre as good as new, or what i plan on doing is, go to a local junkyard and see if they have any old motorcycles, take the hyd brake off that and with some modifications, put it on your blaster

Trenga Racing makes a good hydrolic brake setup for the blaster. Go to Trenga Racing.com and look at the V3 Hydrolic brakes

my brakes use to lock up and stick so i took them apart and cleaned all the parts with a wire brush and WD-40 then put alot of grease all over everything and they havnt gotten stuck since. but if you have the money i would reccomend the trenga hydrolics.

obvioulsy blaster brakes suck as we know but the problem is in the self adjuster mechanism inside the housing. My uncle played around in there and he had it fixed so now my brakes work almost as good as hydrolic.i will find out exactly what he did and post it.

When I had my blaster, I found that it was the cables that would make the brakes not work.I had to replace them 6 times in 6 years. If I were you, I'd try to get that hydraulic setup from Trenga.

I had to replace my cable too, but once i did that and cleaned out the housing the thing worked great. You have to adjust it so the brake drags and just let it ware the pad a little then it is perfect locking tires on pavement is no problem. Having the brakes work good requires that you adjust it alot and you might have to replace the pads a little more often, but a kid died a little while ago because the rear brakes on his friends warrior didnt work and he was riding on the back and got basicly decapitated.

He who does not own tools cannot own a Blaster.

What I did, is shortened my rear brake cable and used vaseline on the bore for the brake pad. I cut down the brake cable and put a bead of weld on the forward end of the cable. Now my rear brake works great.

For all the brake kits I have looked at, this one seems to be the best. The setup looks stock, the reservoir is mounted high along with the acturator assy. I have "heard" that the trenga/blasterzone, needs lots of cleaning when riding in bad conditions due to mounting on the frame. If you don't ride in bad conditions, it should be okay, any hydraulic setup would be better than the stock mechanical, the east coast atv looks to be the best. http://www.eastcoastatv.com/blasterbrakes.htm
