Was doing some trail riding, nothing major..no spills.

Then I notice the back brakes stopped working.

After closer look the bolt holding the unit to the frame broke off and the pedal was hanging on just by the spring.

I did a search and found no posts of anything similar.

Luckily I replaced the unit by taking the bolt off of my bro's '02YZ250F.

perhaps the bolt was a bit loose, then its not hard to break one ..

every screw without "loctite" or lock nuts (?!) keeps unscrewing itself on my '02 YZ426F ..
