So I have never owned a 4 wheeler, and I happened to be riding the other day and I looked at the mechanism for the rear brakes on my 400ex. How do you add fluid to the system for example when you change the rear pads?

ok so the problem here is I didn't look close enough the other day. I bet when I look at it tomorrow I will smack myself on the forehead!

haha, no, I figured I should make sure I know how to ride it and don't flip it myself before I go replacing parts. So far I haven't had much time to ride, I did however find time to bust my a$$ the other day when I found out its not a good idea to try and pop a wheelie full throttle in first gear from a stop. Turns out the entire 4 wheeler will go completely vertical, dump you off the back, and then continue going on its own haha!

I did that on the MX track a few times right of the starting line.

Here is another noob question. I was screwing around with the parking brake the other day (out of adjustment or something becuase it doesn't work haha) and I grabbed hold of the rear rotor and I could wiggle it from left to right a little bit. Is that normal?

Um No I don't think it's supposed to have side to side motion.

I am out of town again and won't be home for 2 weeks, but it isn't really the rotor that moves, I think it is actually the hub that is attached to the axle that the rotor bolts to that is moving.
