    Question help needed regarding brakes....

    Hey guys, hope you all are doing well.
    I need your help regarding rear brakes... I'm riding Honda 125, A few weeks before when I applied brakes hard after touching 90-95 km/hr the tyre didn't slip, but now when i hit brake padal hard even when riding at slow speed the tyre slips. what could be the exact reason....??

    Maybe your rear tyre needs replacement.
    Dont apply one brake hardly at high speeds.
    It jams the wheel thus causing the bike to skid off the road.
    Always apply both brakes slowly.
    In extreme emergency cases use the gears to stop the bike instead of hitting the brakes abruptly.
    One of the most difficult things in the world is to know how to do something, and to watch without comment, somebody else do it incorrectly.

    Well there is a technical answer to this but dude never use rear brakes only use in combo with the front like @Daniyal

    to answer your question why it slipped at lower speeds and not higher. When at 90kmh the moment arm force applied was greater then the braking power hence no skidding and at lower speeds the friction caused by the brakes was more then the moment arm force applied by the tyre. This the best way I can explain it before confusing you further.

    Dude its new bike.... and yeah i mostly stop bike through gears. I apply brakes in pumps several times while droping the speed from high to dead slow. overall the brakes are awesome, I'm satisfied but the thing is why it skids. to my experience it happens due to weight, there is not ample weight on the rear to put pressure on the tyre. it only happens when I'm riding alone.

    90km - 95km? you dont like yourself do you?
    Poor braking is due to several reasons, worn out tires, engaging emergency brakes and depressing one brake more forcefully than the other, worn out brake linning or in some cases the wheel drum just doesn't have the strength to hold against the brake shoes. Are you using correct tyres?

    umm i think I got the problem what user is having.

    @ssam! Brother you said its a new bike, and it only tend to skid at lower speeds while not higher. (You also stated that you use brakes in Pump Style which means you are a experienced rider not a starter)

    There could be TWO possible reasons i can think of.

    1. Tighten your Rear Brake a little bit. I experienced it myself that loose brake pedal works very good at higher speeds but bake shoes (or whatever you call 'em, drums whatever) does not Grip a trye (when you apply brakes) at lower speeds, and when you press it a little harder, the rear wheel jams and the bike tens to skids. (Be assured i am talking strictly about CG-125 Classic/PowerPlus model and the REAR Tyre of it)

    2. Rear tyre alignment is out of order. Get it checked.


    However i still think reason 1 is your problem.

    Please check and reply back.
