I have not seen the brake test entery results on computerisation for quads, I would imagine the layout to be the same though.

Somebody like KevG who does bike testing on here I think would probably be best to advise on the section 9 performance tables, as they look like what we used to do with bike testing many years ago, so what i am referring to is the independant brakes, we used to measure the efficiency of each wheel brake divide by presented weight before x 100 = %, if I am right 30% from first means of control and 25% from the second was the order for bikes, but KevG will know.

section 9 looks similar to me but somebody who has been testing quads etc for a while may know better.

The Brake Performance Reqirements Section,

"If",  I, You, or We, Carry out all reqired brake performance checks and record them on the VT40. We have done our job correctly?

Hi Auto,

It was the brake performance requirements section that is the confusion.

What have you got in mind Wes. Section 9.3 refers to controls and mountings, sounds a bit like testing bikes in that section. Then it goes on about brake efficiency and single brake control operating all brakes, or independant operating controls, again sounds like testing bikes.

If ABS with a "DIM LIGHT" is fitted the section advises to go to section 3.4.

What you thinking Wes

Hi All,

Section 9 refers to Quadricycles, and when entering any test results on computer you should notice a radio button that asks, Quadricycle "y" or "n"

Have a read of the brake section and advise of your thoughts/interpretations.;)


ps; this is No trick question, but I am slightly confused.:?

Laters,

Wes.
