gunna need a little more info to give you a better answer. Try adjusting them from your remote, if not tighten the 2 allen bolts a little bit . You dont wanna over tighten them or your gunna slide like crazy in the dirt.

ahh yea forgot about that. Thats usually what i do to loosen or tighten my brakes. Just turn the plastic black bolt, or w/e it is lol. You could even put a shorter or longer peice of fuel line inbetween the black bolt and brake lever. lol i wouldnt do it but it is another way
