Rear brake pedal settings
« on: Jan 29, 2017, 04:13 PM »
Hi. I've just brought some new front pegs, I've fitted them ok but it's made the rear brake pedal too low is there anyway of moving the pedal up a little bit? Or do I just have to live with it, and the new pegs have 2 settings so I have put them on the lowest height already.

Yes, the rear brake pedal is adjustable, every bike is I believe.
You have to take the peg hanger off and adjust from behind, there is a threaded shaft and locknuts.

It can be adjusted w/o taking the hanger off.  All (OK, almost all) rear brake adjustments involve loosening the lock nuts on the threaded rod and then turning the rod which ever way you need to move the pedal up or down.  If it doesn't move, you forgot to loosen one nut (probably the one hiding under the rubber boot  :138:).

I want to know how it is. At the time I set it up, it had problems like you. I would like to know what's available for setup.
