Woodcraft Rearset Install - July 26, 2014, 11:19 AM

Installing woodcraft rearsets on a 2008 R6.

First question: Do I get rid of the brake pedal return spring? No place on the woodcraft pedal to hook it onto, although the rearset has the bottom mounting hole for it. Not sure where the spring would attach to on the pedal side.

Question two: How do I adjust pedal position? Is that by adjusting the bolts and the hinge that attaches the pedal to the master cylinder? In other words, shorten up that bolt interface to get the pedal lower?

Right now it's almost perfect, and I bled my brakes, but there is almost no give in the rear pedal, almost like it's just on/off - very firm, actually more so than the front brakes even after bleeding. I'm wondering if this is an indication something is wrong.

1.The spring is no longer being used. You need to get a woodcraft banjo bolt with pressure brake switch wire it up. $20 - www.woodcraft-cfm.com - CoarseThreadBrakePressureSwitchAssbly10mm125 - Make sure you get the right bolt with correct pitch.

2. Yes, you got this one right.

3. Possibly, hard to say from your description. Firm feel is good, but if it got "locked" feel, then you have a problem.

I would rather have a soft/spongy rear brake lever, than have it firm. Some people actually purposely put air in the line, cut he brake pads a bit so bite isn't as strong.

Don't need brake lights. Track bike only. So I don't need the pressure switch, right?

Correct. Just find a room to tuck the OEM brake light sensor or cut it up if you dont care about it.

I recommend running a brake return spring either way. They make a nice kit for this.
