front brake problem ???
« on: May 29, 2012, 05:26:03 PM »
well i just hit an other snag trhue the restauration of my FL350. I just realise that only one piston on each side is comming out of the cylinder on the front brakes.
I have checked around a bit today, including E-Bay and i cant find any replacement nowhere or any rebuilding kits at all.
Since i want in a near futur convert the thing with front disk brake, i would like to fix the problem in the cheapest way for now.
anybody have an idea, or is there any cylinder comming from an other ATV from honda that could fit in there ?????

Well if you're looking for dirt cheap, pull the bad cylinder apart and see if you can hone it. I highly recommend replacing the cub seals, but you might be able to make them work a bit longer. I bet you could find cup seals that would work if you searched the web a bit though based on size.

I have the seals. I just have not gotten around to listing on our site. They are $15 per wheel cylinder.

ok for the seals but if i have any rust on the piston, it's just going to jam again no ? even with a brand new seal.
I really have to take those seals appart and check it out inside out then i will come back to you LiveWire and check back for those seals.

It will bind up if there is corrosion. I have some good used wheel cylinders if yours are bad.
