Drum brakes were not a very well self contained design; mother nature always finds a way to hinder them useless after a great trail ride. Disc brakes are no diffrent. just hose it out and let them dry or like jrowe said take the drums off and clean the piss out of them.

Yeah I would say so.. My buddy has a 250Ex and he tears down the rear brakes after we go riding for long periods of time in the mud and water they start to stick when you press the lever especially the foot brake. lube up the shaft where the brake lever cables hook to that should do the trick.

So mine prob just need cleaned then..they wont release sometimes
