Nw single track, 500 lbs and no rear brakes.

I found an upgrade they did to the 990's that us 950 riders might not be aware of. I wasn't.
There is no brake stop to prevent the rear brake pedal from pivoting up on impact and ripping the piston out of the rear master cylinder.



I wanted to get in the last bit of mountain riding before the snow hits, here is some Evens creek single track. Good times!

Sweet, The sun is setting, your still on single track, there's ice puddles, and no brakes. Man, I love my 950 too. I never thought about the rear brake cylinder pulling out. Thanks

The 990 has a bolt threaded in the frame at the top of the brake lever.
supper easy mod to do to your 950. It might save your day.

Damn man.

I would swear the pedal is pushing a rod that is free to move downwards. The rod is not attached to the master cylinder piston so it cannot pull it downwards? am I missing something?

Cheers.

On the SE that stop is an eccentric that adjusts the height of the brake pedal. I've snapped that small screw off a couple times.

Trying to figure out how you ripped out the plunger. The rod attached to the pedal only presses against the plunger. No attachment between the plunger and the rod. The plunger is prevented from falling out with a snap ring.



EDIT,,, typed too slow.

On early models i think its a different rear brake.

On my -04 removing the pedal it can hang from the plunger.

Having the pedal off the new -11 things just fell apart.

Edit: found a picture:

Ride it like you stole it, and leave lots of casualties behind.

Looking at parts fiche the -04 and -11 are different so I would say YES on older models.

Darryl.... not saying you're wrong but even looking over the differences in the fisches over the years, there are differences in the rod that goes from the pedal to the plunger but I don't see any that fasten together. The thing that makes me skeptical about them attached is that any variance in alignment would accelerate wear of the plunger/seals and possibly even binding.

Maybe you have an oddball.
