Brake Pedal Height Adjustment

Hi All,

I've read through the numerous threads on adjusting brake pedal height, and have adjusted it as much as I can so that the pedal/lever is as low as possible. I'm now in a situation where the "adjusting" nut is just about level with the "locking" nut so don't seem to be able to make it go any lower. Was wondering if I've done something wrong or if there is some other way to lower it further?

That looks like it is maxed out im afraid.

I had the same problem. Ended up getting new rear sets with loads of adjustability. Maybe someone else can chime in with a trick or work around ect.

Take care & ride safe.

You can go to a thinner lock nut, that will give you a couple more turns. After that it's either cut/weld the pedal itself or go aftermarket rearset.

I'm running the yoshi relocators and no problem adjusting pedal where I need it, but we're all different in what we want for pedal position.
