Brake pedal adjustment

Postby jtd » Wed Mar 19, 2014 1:38 pm



Tried to adjust the brake pedal. Found the adjusting nut on the rod connecting to the master cylinder. On the right side of the bike, I turned the rod in the up direction (counterclockwise viewing seated on the bike). the pedal raised maybe 1/8" and stopped, then I ran out of rod at the clevis connection to the brake pedal and the pedal itself is still slightly lower than the foot peg. When I turn the rod the other way, the pedal goes down - the opposite direction I'm trying to make it travel. As a result I cannot get the pedal to adjust to the .4" above the foot peg as described in the shop manual.

Any thoughts welcome. Thanks.

You can take the pinch nut lose and pull the brake peddle off and then rotate it up,to where you need it to be.

I cant rotate the pedal arm on the spindle - the mount for the footpeg hits the pedal arm so it cant rotate any more counterclockwise. Has anyone else experienced this? Picture attached.
