What's not working? Is the cable froze up or will the handle move, just not engage?

not sure yet im having it shipped my way. the gal who is selln it isn't mechanicaly inclined. i will know more when i get it. What she did know was it has the cr 500 upgrade along with a front long travel suspension, after market pipe, airbox mods, rims and tires for trail and sand riding and custom skid plates. All this mod should push this little fat kid to the limits of his blood pressure meds. More to come when i get the machine.

Could be anything from a bad cable to just needing adjusting...I will tell you that I haven't had much luck keeping one adjusted...It seems you can get it adjusted properly, but if you use a lot of brake, it isn't long until it needs it again....
