Hello,

I have a Lifan LF200GY-5, bought it about 7 months ago, and I have a problem with the rear brake. First, I was trying to figured out myself what went wrong with it but I have no idea. Then I went back to the Lifan dealer and they checked the rear brake for a few times. And they said nothing wrong with it and the brake shoe's are not even worn out that much.

The problem is that I think the rear brake is a bit soft, especially when I go down a hill slowly the rear brake feels not that comfortable.

Is there a trick to get more power of the rear brake?.

Hello Aof,

Hard to comment on the stopping power of the rear brake without seeing the machine, but the rear brake on the Lifan LF200GY-5 is, as on most road bikes, less powerful that the front brake.

Also the OEM/stock brake pads on the Lifan LF200GY-5 are not exactly pro trial riding equipment – going downhill slowly sounds very similar to trial riding...

Anyway... we can advice you to change the rear OEM/stock brake pads with brake pads from the 2007 Yamaha YZF-450. This brake pads fit perfectly and your stopping power will increase dangerously...

A set of very good brake pads cost just under 1,000 THB EBC Sintered SV Brake Pads.
