I've never managed to get the rear disk working properly with the rearsets. I had to bleed the line with a pump but the lever ratio seems wrong as the brake doesn't bite hard. Any ideas out there?

I don't know what your situation is, but i had what sounds like a similar thing once. Had a cam on a lever that pushed a plunger into the master cylinder. Sounds cobby- but; I cut and shaped a piece of aluminium to build up the cam. I may have just used JB Weld to hold it on, or I may have sunk a screw (it's been a while and I'm getting old). Anyway- it worked for another 40K, or so. Seems like it was a spacer or bushing or something. I seem to have a million bits sitting around and I don't know where they came from or what they're for.
