Can anyone suggest an adjustable rear brake assembly as the standard one does not allow you to cover the rear brake during wheelies ( as i'm sure you all have found ) without the foot/ankle in an uncomfortable elevated position . It appears even adjusting the set up , compromises the piston play etc. :cheers:

I never cover the rear brake either, always seem to forget! :rolleyes:

Maybe put a thumb brake lever on?

Could be an idea .. but throttle roll and controlling the brake with the thumb at the same time could be a bit tricky ! I think i'll have to come up with my own rear brake lever , angled down . :cheers:

Thumb brake lever goes on the left.

If it's any help I had the same problem to get round it i adjusted the rear brake piston so there was enough free play to put my foot on the lever in a straight position without the brake dragging

what about the hammerhead ones off the CRF i think would be very close ?? any tried one of these ?? i am looking for new ones also as my toe pieces are all broken and flat need something a little stronger

I use the hammerhead on my SXV, but it is not a direct bolt on, I needed to machine my own pivot bushing, CRF is smaller...also clevis is at an angle (cocked a bit) & I needed to grind the peg mounts for clearance...Not easy to fit but I was detemend to mount it... Really no difference in clearence, just looks better, Stock lever actualy workls better...

Berringer makes a rear master cylinder that I may try to offer more downward adjustability of stock lever...

i am just looking for something stronger , but if you had trouble with clearance with the standard peg i would have to grind it away as i have FRO pegs with 15 mm raises for ground clearance .

can you post up a pic i dont wont to buy one and have it not work with my pegs
