Brakes on a 2010 27fb Classic

I have Drum breaks that donít seem to work as well as they once did.

How long do the shoes last?

Can they be adjusted and is the process the same as old automotive drum brakes?

Is there some other maintenance requirement?

Thanks
Brad

Does your axle have manual or self adjusting brakes? Might be in owners manual or on Dexter label on front side of axle tube.

If manual adj then very similar to old school drums. The self adjuster should do it but they can be adj if reqd but slight different procedure.

Which one do you have ?

I have a Dexter 1589714. There is 40 to 50K miles on them. My pictures donít seem to be working.

Brad,

I searched the Dexter number and can't tell if that's manual or self adj. by that number.

This was a never lube and self adjusting rig I worked on

If you have not pulled a drum in two years or more, now would be a good time for that.

Before the drum is pulled and after the tire/wheel assy is removed spin the drum. A good adjustment would have the friction material touching the drum ever so slightly.

Many of these are NOT self adjusting. To answer your question, YES adjusting them would be like adjusting rear brakes on much older cars.
