Had my Swing for about a month now, & I did not know it had a parking brake. Didn't get any manuals from the previous owner... Tonight the light comes on - on the dash saying P - parking brake...

So - where is the lever or pedal that actuates the P-brake? I will need to check it to make sure it's not stuck.

Hey Joe,

You can down load a PDF copy of the owners manual 2007 that you can ref.

I just went back over the bike & found the parking brake. Sure enough, it was stuck slightly engaged. Probably hit it with my knee...

thanks for the help!

I will download that manual.

you pull that lever to engage the brake... pull it all the way towards you and it will release. You must have been parking on very level ground for a month if you didn't need the parking brake. With the automatic trans and no park... you should roll without the brake engaged. But I forgot... Kansas is VERY flat... ( I was born in Garden City )

I often forget to use the park brake on the Swing, but I really appreciate how easy it is to use compared to the Helix I used to have.

Hi
on my previous Wing the pads were down to the metal suspect original owner was a bit forgetful and did'nt ensure brake was fully released before moving off.Mind you the warning light was inop so he would never have known.

Yeah, I've changed mine a couple of times. I've also had far too many stupid attacks and ridden off the the brake still on.

That said, I've never been able to determine the difference between a brand new set of pads (which have next to nothing for pad material) and my, perceived, worn out pads.

Yes, new parking brake pads look like they are all ready worn out. Probably most important is disassembling the the caliper and making sure the parts are well lubricated, as the parts are prone to stick. Early wing calipers sometimes weren't lubricated and people had problems with the parking brake stuck on. If your brake sticks , push the lever on the caliper towards the back of the bike and this will release the brake.

I use mine all the time, mostly because the side-stand, while up to the job im sure, doesn't seem all that "stabilizing" to me.

And its one more security measure. I had no idea what the lever was, or how to work it when i got mine, i had to ask the service manager. So if they cant push it away . . . . . . . . .

Im quite fond of trailing sentences aren't I!
