Ok so I jsut traded a piece of junk saturn i had in the yard for a 1999 yamaha TW200

needs brakes and brake handle....anyone know how hard it is to repalce those? is it somethign I can do at home? or should i take it to a shop?

I'm not a mecanic..but I tinker allot.

the brakes are drum brakes...and I never played with drum brakes...so advice or websites to pont me to woudl be great.

dirtrider.net has good info and it shouldnt be that hard .....you could always buy a repair manual that would help alot also

yup pretty simple. should only be 2 springs total holding the brake shoes in. the brake level is easy too will be one bolt holding it on also and then look underneath and you will see the groove where the cable goes in
