I have the page from the service manual if you want me to email it to you.

Let me know. You loosen the locknut and then turn the adjusting bolt. Best you see the pix.

Let me know.

Loosen the locknut (A) and adjust the adjusting screw (B) until the pedal is at the desired height. Then tighten the locknut again. The rubber boot that goes over the adjusting screw will sometimes get twisted, just work it back around until it's straight again. Also, don't forget to adjust the brake light switch if necessary.

Hi guys.

I need to adjust my lever up as I have shorty legs - how far can the bolt come out of the caliper (b) as I need to ajust it quite a bit.

Thanks.
