ADJUSTMENT



Before adjusting the parking brake, adjust the rear brakes and bleed the brake system, if necessary. Pull the parking brake lever all of the way up and count the number of clicks. If less than 7 or more than 8 clicks are heard, the parking brake requires adjustment. Adjustment can be made at the left parking brake cable adjuster nut on the Storm models at the turnbuckle (located at rear axle assembly) on the Spectrum models.
