Parking Brake

How is the parking brake setup on the 850? Does it have its own pad? or does it use the main rear pads?

The parking brake is separate from the rear brake pads, but that's about all I know.
The handbrake has a completely separate pair of drum brakes on the rear axle - full info is in the Haynes manual but a tip is to occasionally put it on a couple of notches and drive for about 1-200 yards to clean all the rust and crud off the pads.
Just try not to drive all the way to school with it pulled up...
