Thanks, and I follow what you are saying.

After fiddling with it this morning I can get the adjustment set to where I have brakes, but the pedal tip is still slightly higher than the plane of the footrest. Just as soon as I go into the woods with it like that and stand up on the pegs I'll be tapping the pedal whether I want to or not.

So I'm going to need to pull the lever off and grind a bit from the bottom to get the clearance I need, and I have two questions:

1. (a) What's the trick to removing the pedal lever and (b) disconnecting the master cylinder shackle? My manual is loaned out so I am having trouble getting an "exploded" view.

2. How much metal to remove from the bottom of the lever?
