Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Pedal Height Adjustment

Post by sullivj on Sun 22 May 2016, 1:29 pm

Just realised how easy it is to adjust the rear brake pedal height...(disc model)

With your spanner through the lower access slot in the hanger, loosen off the lock nut (bottom one).

Through the upper access slot, rotate the nut at the bottom of the master cylinder, until the pedal is at the desired height.

Re-tighten the lock nut, and then rotate the collar on the brake light switch, to adjust when the switch activates.

Easiest done by laying on the floor, so you can see what's going on.

I never knew you could do this. Then again I've never had any reason to adjust mine.

It is a faff to adjust but worthwhile if your pedal doesn't seem quite right. It's similar spannering for the drum model bikes too.
