Rear brake pedal sideways play

Recommended Posts

Guys,

I swear my rear brake pedal used to be fairly tight from a sideways play point of view.

I have installed it with the washer between the frame and the lever, tightened it up and it wobbles a fair bit (not so much the lever hits against the crankcase, but not far off).

I think perhaps the guy who stripped my bike when my engine let go lost the appropriate washer?

Or is there some other explanation.

Yeah I had a look at that and it would appear I have the oil seal, and a washer that fits, but perhaps its not the right washer (i.e not thick enough).

It's the fit of the lever. The shaft is rock solid in the frame.

I was trying to ask is the lever sliding in and out on the shaft? Then it might be the washer thickness. If it is rocking on the shaft then the shaft is worn or the lever is worn.

If I remember correctly there is a bushing that is inside the pedal that could be worn allowing too much clearance on the pivot bolt. I don't think you can buy it seperately. You can get a machinist to make you a new brass bushing for cheaper than you can buy the pedal. I did that on my YZ.
