SO I made a bracket for the rear brake lever, today. It needs work, I'm going to make another one thats built just a little bit differently. But I think the theory works, so far.

Me weld pretty someday.

Take your shock off and try lifting the swingarm right up to see what the cable does. I remember looking at the same thing a few years ago and i seem to remember a problem

I did just that sort of thing... But I only dropped it off the centerstandand let it ride at rolling height. Yes, the cable rubs, in the configuration it was in. I took the bracket off and beat it with a hammer a little bit, and got most of the rub on the swingarm out, but I still need to remake the bracket to reflect the new dimension changes. Right now it looks like a hammer beat twisted lump :lol


Thanks!

That reminds me sooo much of my days in the garage

Have you had any brake issues from it hitting? I've wrecked my bike a thousand times but I keep the boxes on so my arm never touches down.

I've not had a chance to try it out in practice, yet, but I will say the lever and cable are both currently bent from hitting in the rocks when it was down, precipitating me turning it upside down

Man I wish I had more days in the garage I just dont want to be unemployed to do it
