Rear break linkage issues

Unread postby Reccebiker » Tue Dec 05, 2017 11:34 pm

A couple of Ural brothers told me that my break lights were on while travelling the back roads with them. On investigation, we determined that my right boot was inadvertently resting on the foot pedal linkage for the rear breaks. My pads were just about completely worn down and I needed to replace those pads. I only have 3,300 km on the bike! I looked and thought that if I could fabricate a bracket to prevent my right foot from coming into contact with the linkage, I'd prevent undue wear on a set of new pads, and they are not cheap either! I utilized the existing side car break line shield mount to bolt down the new linkage shield.
I used a piece of aluminum sheet 1/8" thick and cut the plate then trimmed the leading edge to allow my right boot access to the break pedal. I've attempted to upload a pic of the finished mod. no go.. If you want a pic, just ask.
cheers,

I like the brake guard! I did the same thing on my 2014 for the same reasons.

The stock rear organic brake pads wear very quickly. When replacing them, use the semi-scintered pads - EBC FA473V
