problem with brakes

when i got on my polaris sportsman 500 today i accidentally grabbed the handle too hard and squeezed the brake lever. it felt like something broke because the brake lever is now spongy and the brakes wont work. but if i push the foot brake and the hand brake at the same time, i can get it to stop.. if i only use the foot brake it wont work. did i break a line or something?

Re: problem with brakes

sounds like maybe you did!!!
Check the fluid level, look for a leak along the brake line, if its leaking you should be able to see it real easy
