I think your brake shoes need replacement based on the symptoms you described - I've experienced the same problem.

The Impulse brake shoes wear out rather quickly and they are hard to source. The Hero Splendor rear brake shoes are fortunately a direct fit though and cost less than a hundred bucks.
