Ok I have a 08 TRX 400 and yesterday I was riding and it was fine i loaded it up and got home and now my back brake isnt working. When I press if it just goes all the way down like its dead but if i pump it it starts to work, i have fluid so what could it be? Anyone?:confused:

Welcome to the forums. If it's full on fluid and not leaking anywhere, you could try bleeding the brakes. They may have gotten air in them, although I don't know what would have caused it all at once like that.

That sucks!!!! Try alittle locktight the next time. I believe the blue is not as strong as the red stuff. I lost mine once in the yard and I used locktight and have had no issues with it since.

Yep, use the blue locktite. The red will be too hard to get back off. The red is considered permanent.
