Plover73 rear brake pedal stop

Post  Callen on Wed Jul 13, 2016 9:04 pm

Hello all I am Clive and have recently acquired a plover 73, there is a bracket screwed to the side of the bike with a bolt that stops the brake pedal coming up to far. It doe's not look as if it should be there, could any one tell me if this is correct. Clive

No it is incorrect the brake stop is part of the spring return mechanism on the shaft, not a separate bolt on piece

I can understand why it's been done, having a brake pedal to high really bugs me especially when i'm riding modern bikes daily.
Any chance of a picture of this bracket? I was wanting do do something similar to get my brake level down to a normal level instead of having to lift my foot off the peg every time i want to brake.

There is no bracket, there is a piece of tube with a spring cup on it and a spring which returns the brake pedal, when the whole lot is clamped up it prevents the pedal from being too high, if you have the correct set up, loosening it of setting the brake pedal at the desired position and re-tightening should achieve the desired affect, if what you have is non standard, this will not help you a lot, sorry I do not have a plover to take a photo of, but someone else may ?

Send me your email address and I will copy a picture to you, I am sure you could make a better job of it.
