Are you sure the emergency brake is off?  I did that, and it doesn't want to come off when that's on.  Wasn't a problem otherwise unless theres another problem  rolleyes.gif

i have the parking brake disconnected. having to ride my scoot to work. very cold.

Adjuster needs to be all the way in and you might have to back the parking brake off some.

Ok that may work.

i disconnected parking brake still will not go on. thee is no adjustment ust springs and hinges

The adjuster is a metal piece with a bunch of teeth. It needs to be released and pushed all the way in.I'll see if I can find a pic in the service manual when I get home.
