Brake Pedal and Shaft

Postby Martin.S » Sun May 05, 2019 1:53 pm

I loosely assembled the brake pedal to be able to make up the little Brake Pedal/ Spring Stop(044342) that is specific to the G5
Using the following picture as a guide(This is a G2) I I think I might have a problem.

With my picture below you can see that with the nut nipped up on the rear foot peg with the brake pedal and its spring fitted
it looks like the pedal isn't fitting in close enough towards the frame

The dimensions of the shaft are below - Have I something missing or the wrong parts?

The pedal boss does look a bit short, it should measure just under two inches, You may have a heavyweight lever, anyway I have added photos which may or may not help.

Thanks Colin - I've moved things around to replicate your picture and looks like things are correct - much appreciated - Thank you.
