Rear brake pedal

Postby Seargent-at-Arms » Mon May 16, 2016 1:19 pm



I have a 81 gl1100. The rear brake pedal is set to high. I kick the fuel pump, when I try to apply it. Is there a way to adjust the rear brake pedal?

If it's the same for yourself as it is for my early gl1000, the adjustment is carried out on the pushrod under the master cylinder. Loosen the lock nut and turn the pushrod to either lengthen or shorten it as needed. If you shorten the rod, the brake pedal will get lower.

Thank You, I'll check that out. I was afraid I had to remove an reposition the pedal.

After you adjust it, check that your rear brake light works properly.....might need to tweak the adjustment. No big deal

Wow I actually saw the adjustment when I was messing the brake pedal. I am guessing that I have to adjust horizontal up to slacken the tension,
