Only input I got for you is to use punctuation and spell check so we can understand your issue.

Sorry but there really isn't enough information here for us to do more than make wild guesses.

Welcome from Colorado.
Using the term beat down indicates hard riding.
Sticks can come up by the floor board and get stuck in the brake linkage/pedal assembly, then fall out moving the pedal again. If it's back to working, beat it down some more and let us know what happens.
Just an idea.

Hey..ssxr600Welcome to GC from Wisconsin.
There have been a few reports of the brake pedal sticking. I guy I know had to widen out the pivot hole in the pedal.

There have also been a couple reports of a problem with the rear hydraulic brake not releasing. The riders had to crack open a brake line at the master cylinder to release the pressure. Weird thing with this is only had to release the pressure once and never had it happen again.


Disregard the grammar police. We have members from all over the world on this forum. Some have challenges with the Kings English.

I had this happen on my 2014 grizzly 700 a month ago. I never did find the cause, but mine occurred when i crashed. My rear brake was heavily on and my rear brake lever was ultra stiff. It released on it's own and now it's fine. I just attributed mine to my crash where i went over the bars.

Hmmmmm... Probably not the best way to welcome a new member. And
I understood his issue just fine. More information might have been nice to diagnose the issue but it seems other members have come to his aid instead of what you did.

Most of us don’t give a shit about grammar or spelling, just spit it out best that you can. My Dad had a third grade education, I have five college diplomas on the wall. It’s all good, ride on.

My brake pedal on my 2016 was a bit sticky. The previous owner sprayed some white/yellow colored crap all over the machine. Made a real mess actually. Its all dried and like wax now. I blamed that. I sprayed mine with WD, temporarily removed the brake cable and worked it many times. Its all free'd up now. Maybe it wasn't the previous owners fault.

It was sticky at the spot where the pedal attaches to the frame. In behind the right front fender.

OK guys I got it, sorry I did not come off so smooth I was in a hurry wife wanted date nite asap! And I will try to do a better job in the future. Thank you all for the info and support you gave me it did help, but were still tearing it down to find the problem. For me Im a rider who has a lot of miles under my belt, and who has raced bikes, quads, 3 wheel machines as well. I have rode the baja mexico 8 times with Honda on bikes raced southern Ohio for years off road. I do not want to piss you guys off I just wanted to know since this was my first non racing machine with out a clutch and yes Im getting older and its time for me to ride longer and smoother and more comfortable and this seems to be the way to go. So sorry for the a--wipe the next time it will be a$$wipe . Hope to see you on the trails as of now I be the guy with the smoking brake pads. lol

You made two excellent choices. First the Grizzly and then coming to Grizzly Central. Fair warning, though.... Membership here has been known to impact bank accounts due to Griz mods. lol. But this joint has saved me a few bucks, too.

As I own a 2017 grizz I'll be very interested in what you find out, I'm with Ridgway on the stick, hope it's as simple as that. Hmmm---- :nerd: is it a--wipe, a$$ wipe or rectal cleanser, the mind boggles :grin2:

OK hear is what we found out when we tore it down, we replaced the calipers and rotors and pads and bleed the lines and all is good it ran great today for over 40 miles no problems . The tech seems to think it was a bad caliper that wouldnt release and as it heated up it ruined both back brakes rotors and pads were burnt , Yamaha took care of it and I must say the dealer was great. And by the way the dealer was Custom power sports of Chillicothe OH.

Sweet! Glad you got it worked out and it didn’t cost you anything.
