Im having a problem with my front brakes. The brake lever was going right down to the bar. So i adjusted them and the lever was fine. Half way through my riding the next day I noticed it was geting low again. I don't loose any brake fluid. any ideas would help

I also recomend the HL disc brake kit. All you worry about is replacin' the pads
when they wear down.

I have got the same problem. So i put new pads last year, it worked fine for a year now its the same way again. I dont really want to put a disk brakes kit because they are a little to expensive. So if any one has any suggestions please let me know.

for what it costs to try and keep the front drum brakes working the disk conversion will be cheaper. The front springs will be rusted possibly too bad to reuse, the pads will be bad, all the seals and if all the mud is in the factory brakes, it is in the bearings too. Get sealed H L bearings and the conversion and it will cheaper in the long run.

you dont have to use the highlifter sealed bearings, you can use quadboss bearing kit and you get sealed bearings and the new seals all in one kit. and you save money. i use the extreme products disc brakes because the rotor is 4 times as thick and you can turn it if you get any scars or blemishes on the rotor. and the brake pads are alot better and you can replace them with the ebc sever duty pads for even longer life.

Not sure on the Honda but if you described this to me on a car, the master cylinder needs to be replaced. You can tell if everything is good, no leaks, pads/drums good, adjustments correct and the master cylinder is full of fluid. If you have to pump the brake a couple times to get brakes, master cylinder is bad. Same thing just happend on my 74 Bronco.
Good luck!
