Maniac,
I would set the adjustment to the loosest position and forget it exsists. The reason is the brake cable and the emergency brake are tied to the same brake caliper. When you adjust the emergency brake there is a piston in the caliper which pushes the brake pad further out, hence when its out further for the emergency brake to work, your rotor rubs against it more and wears your pads down faster. When I had my first ATV I used to do the same thing until I asked why are my pads wearing out so quickly, that was the reason. Good Luck

I couldn't agree more with De700. That brake is absolutely useless!!! The more you adjust it the quicker you will need to replace your brake pads!! I'm disappointed that after all these years Honda still hasn't improved that problem. My 2002 300ex had the same issue!!
