So upon doing a routine inspection I found out my foot brake will stick once i press it.

I Have to physically lift it up to get it to disengage.

The hand brake works just fine.

Any advise?

:deal: Lube the all cables associated with the foot brake. The hand brake is direct to the master cylinder. The foot brake operates the master cylinder through cables.

The cable that runs from the pedal up to the Leaver is subject to lots of dirt and water on the lower end. Id get some lube in their and work the pedal till she loosens up

My friend has a 2014 Grizzly 700 and my wife has a 2014 Grizzly 550 and both have had a problem with the foot brake sticking down. To fix the issue, we both had to remove the foot brake, clean the rust and dirt off the pivot point and the inside of the brake, then we put waterproof grease on the pivot point and it's working better than new.

The hardest part was getting the brake pedal off the pivot point. If you don't have a jaw puller, go to an auto part store and spend $5 on the handy tool. It will allow you to get the brake off without a bunch of frustration. I have tried to attach a picture of what I used.

I have a 2005 Grizzly 660 and it never had this issue so I think a design change has made the problem occur if you ride in a lot of mud and water.

Dealing with a 14’ 550 with a sticky brake, suspect the same issue

I also had to do the following. Worked like a champ afterwards.
