Has anyone noticed how hard you have to pull the brake lever to make the lights go on?When just feathering the brake the light doesnt work on mine,you have to lock it up to activate the brake light.I wonder if the switch can be adjusted.

lol...I was telling Dana this was built in by CAT so no one would be able to see how much you need to use the breaks going into corners after having the sled at WOT for too long. :D

It is Dangerous though b/c no one behind you will have a warning unless you hammer the breaks like Dana Said.

once the pads wear in a little , iwonder if this will change
i noticed stopped at night on the trail side, i always flash my break lights at the sleds coming up on me when i'm stopped.
got to thinking when i'm riding just feathering the brake, guys behind have no idea i;m breaking unless i'm really locking it up

The older Wilwood brakes had a switch adjustment. You could unplug and loosen or tighten the swith to adjust. My F7 has been fine and I have not looked at it so I am not sure it is the same.

They are not activated the same on the Firecats as they have been on the ZR's.

This brake light thing has been a problem with Cats since they started using the Wilwood brake. Mine for some reason on my F7 is actually fine and comes on with very little pressure.

and a broken windshield, tough crowd you run with!
You know, it certainly seems that way!!! LOL!! Truth is, I ride with my family. The windshield I did all myself. Went to go through and open water bar and hit something that made the sled stop instantly, and me go over the handebars! Broke the windshield with my arm. :wacko:

And its my own Bro that A-holed me b/c he was looking behind him instead of when he was going!! I think I'm going to buy him some mirrors!!!! LMAO!!!! :lol:

Goddamn shit like this hasn't happened to me in over 15 years! I hope its over with now. :blink: :blink:
