Nice brat! Um you do know the caliper pistons screw in right? They don't slide in and out like a regular caliper since the park brake is up front. Learned that the hard way myself.

I tried screwing it in for 20 minutes with no luck so i took off then i hit it twice with sledge and put it back together. Once it was bled i tested it out to make sure it was working right which it was. I test brakes on gravel so i can tell what brakes are grabbing from the skid trails from hard stops.

Glad someone on here got that BRAT.  I saw it on Craigslist, but really don't have anywhere to keep it or work on it otherwise I would have called them the second I saw the ad.  Nice that it has Cruise and AC.  If it had Power Steering it would be awesome.

took off the front plate and put it on the dash.



original switch broke a terminal. While i was down there i drain the transmission fluid and put in new 80 90w


Replaced the rear tires today. I had a set of 2 almost new tires mounted on plain black stealies which i didn't even know i had or where i got them. So i dismounted the tires on those and the junk year tires on the brat. Then i put the the new tires on the white spokes rims that came with the brat and balanced them.


The fronts are almost new snow tires with the studs pulled out so there's lots of tread left.10599345_499288326872977_715236446715339Old tire machine has saved thousand of dollars and trips to les-swab and only cost $40.
