Rear brakes - 2004 Foreman

Recommended Posts

I serviced the rear brakes to free up movement on the cam that activates the brake shoes.  

On the rear brakes on a 2004 Honda Foreman there is a washer with an arrow tab that was next to the brake lever / cam assembly.  Located on the outside of the aluminum backing plate. 

I removed the cam and lever assembly to clean and oil it, when I reinstalled I did not make note of where the arrow tab was.  

 It is all back together and operating.  

But what is the function of this “arrow” washer?

Just kinda goes over the top of the spring and the little arrow holds the spring in the hole in the backing plate.


Easier for me to take a pic than it is to describe it.  I have a backing plate torn down to clean up and will try to take a pic when I get home.


Edited to add, looks like it has a function that is NOT what I thought it was.


It's a brake wear indicator.  I looked up the part to see if the schematics showed proper orientation, and it's called a "Brake Indicator"


Looked that up and found this video.
