just did a brake job did front and back pads .. the fronts feel good and the bakes feel soft ... there is no brake fluid leaks just back brakes feel weaker then they were before I put new pads on ... any ideas ?
Check that brake pads are not fetching on the caliper mounting bracket. It happens quite commonly on Yamaha's when people reinstall brakes. It will make the brakes feel like they are full of air (weak and squishy).
Hey Deez, what exactly do you mean by 'fetching'? I changed front pads and have put less than 100 miles on them and they have a different response time when engaging. Its like I have to prime them before they catch. The reservoir window is about 1/2 full.
Remove the caliper and you will see what I am talking about. The brake pads go very close to the caliper mounting bracket. It actually touches it in many cases. This is the area in which the pad fetches up. Some people have had to grind or file some of the brake pad backing plate to clear the bracket. This does not happen very often, but it does happen. In most cases when the pads fetch, a simple loosening of the caliper and "adjustment" of the pad using a small screwdriver fixes the problem.
Now this is in most cases. I have also seen (and have personal experience with it) weak brakes when using cheap brake pads. Many cheap brake pads simply do not have enough stopping power or feel of good brake pads. This is pretty prevalent of the cheap, no name china made, ebay brake pads.
I have a 2020 Grizzly 700SE showing check engine, oil light, blinking diff lock shows err and 590. Checked oil its where it should be. Diff and 4wd engaging right when I push the buttons so not sure what else could be the issue.

I've been working on my bike slowly this winter and thought id share my progress
first thing was to build a bracket to accommodate my snorkels
next in completed the rough install of my snorkels
after that was complete I decided to tackle a rad relocate
after I roughly fab'd the rad relocate...
They have a thread like this on the Titan (Nissan) Forum that I am a member of and it was a hit. So I just thought that I would make one here to see what people have been up to with their Grizzlys.
My new Tamarack Classic Front Box, that I will mount on my back rack, was delivered today...
