View Full Version : Need help rear drum brake

04-01-2017, 10:46 PM
Bike is 78 xs650 with tx500 wheel
Pivot setup from tc bros
Rear brake stay located near axle plate
So either I have no brake or it locks up completely
Shake down ride tonight almost ended in disaster
Brake was popping and would work or nothing at all
Then the pictures happened
Last picture is a before shot red mark is where the brake stay was relocated too yellow marks are the angles which are supposed to be straight lines and it's pulling on the brake lever as I've read to be correct

If anyone has any input please I'm all ears I'd like to learn and do this myself but I will take it to a shop if I can't get it right
