[QUOTE=Lizrdbrth;20441063]Tons of options for longer arms will probably follow. Mine is the alloy version from an XT600.

You gotta be careful with the length. The longer it is the more pedal travel it takes to operate it. There'a limit.:

yea i found out about the limit thing on ratios with the brake pedal, i drilled and moved the pull socket closer to the pivot point and had great power but it didnt leave enough travel for my brake pedal. so i went back to the original location on my pedal. now experimenting with the other end. i think i will leave the dt250 arm back there but now got to upgrade the brake drum like you or something so my brakes dont overheat so quickly. do you have trouble with brake fade on the lighter tw? i figure im having a little more trouble because my bike weighs about 350lbs with tank empty so about 380 full of fuel.
