Good move, the brake works better and as you say, much neater.

Snap!

Well worth the money, if I could only mod 3 things I'd definitely upgrade to AP rearsets.

Looking good. Interesting position of the brake pedal 'return stop'. Makes me think it could move mine lower down too.

It depends on how you ride / leg and foot position really. Also note I have my plates upside down to allow me to lower the pegs more as I'm tall.

Whatever you do make sure the return stop does not take up the free play in the actuating rod. Some careful adjusting of the rod length was required to achieve this setup.

Hadn't noticed the plates are upside down, thanks for mentioning. Presumably the free-play is for fluid expansion?

Looking great! 

Nice to see updates and lovely clear pictures.

I've an RSV4 rear master I've never got around to fitting but should really. 

Suffering with a fractured left pelvis acetabulum and and horrible sprain to my right foot-which is actually causing more complications than the pelvis injury. So have time on my hands not mobility 😆

Thanks a lot, project threads are useless without photos :) All the best with the road to recovery, if it was bike related hope it hasn't put you off.

Much appreciated 👍🏻

Bike related but no it hasn't put me off. Itching to get back out and at it

Yep, the manual specifies a figure on the standard rear master of between 0.5 and 1mm. People have got rid of the free play to try to make a rear brake work better and then found the rear brake locking solid when expansion comes into play. That is not the route to fixing an ineffective rear brake!

Maybe not the most exciting update but... fork service, with SKF oil and dust seals now done ready for the Spring.
