Hi to all. It is normal the brakes (front and rear) of this quad are soo weak????
Try to adjust it, but they do not brake with strong (when i need it to brake powerfully)
The quad is brand new (80 miles)

Some of the guys found air in the system. Could try bleeding it. After that, could try a different brand of pad.

The pads CFM uses are a very low friction level...and don't last. That do have an upgrade pad for some that is much better. Check to see if they offer a set for yours.

Typically the hand brake, that actuates the front brake calipers is mussy and feels like there is air in it.  Even when pumped they feel week.  We have spent hrs and hrs bleeding.  Some get a little better and some don't change.  Foot brake has always worked awesome.  It controls both front and the rear drive shaft calipers.  I tell my customers to get use to using both the hand and foot.  Kind of a poor design in my eyes.  But the foot brake is comparable to any other that I have felt.
