View Full Version : Brake rod length

I picked up an 02 Sporty a couple of weeks ago. The thing that drives me nuts is the rear brake pedal is up way too high. I'm 6'2" and I guess the average Sportser owner is shorter? But either way it's not an angle that I can keep my foot at constantly. It sucks. So I thought maybe there was a jam nut or something on the brake rod on the mc end to be able to adjust the rod length, but no dice. If anyone else had this problem, what did you do to adjust the pedal hight? I was thinking of just cutting maybe an inch out of the rod and then welding it back together. Just looking for any other ideas. I haven't seen anyone selling shorter rods or adjustable rods, so maybe I'm the only person with this problem?

Thanks
