    Default 95/96 arctic cat

    I have just gotten a hold of a 95 (maybe 96) arctic cat. The brakes are in need of some work. I need to bleed them, but don't exactly know how. Anyone have any hints/suggestions?

    Should have wilwood brakes and you'll need some brake fluid and a 1/4" combo wrench, IIRC. Its relatively easy. Instead of me telling you how, follow this link and it pretty much tells you how to do it step by step.

    Yes I believe most of the Bearcats, Cougars, Jags, Panthers, Panteras, and Pumas had the mechanical brakes in 95/96

    Exclamation Brakes- READ THIS

    Dan-

    You might need to replace the rotary splint before you try and bleed them. The hydraulic discombobulator has a sheeve that you will need to remove. The tool that you'll need is found at any auto parts store. Ask for the "disco-ball remover". Follow the instructions on the back of brake fluid bottle. You can thank me later.
