another perfectly good motorcycle ruined.......

rear brake pivot, made from stainless, from the left, this is to space the footpeg away from the bottom high-level supertrapp that runs from the rear cylinder, the middle section acts as a bush to stop the pivot 'picking up' on the aluminium mounting plate, [dis-similar metal, you have two metals of the same physical make up and they will pick up on each contact surface], the right hand, [tapped thread] section sits in the aluminium mounting plate  and is locked off with the original castellated nut to duplicate the original mounting, small piece of work, loads of time, essential if you want your rear brake to work, always a bonus that, even though i only use my rear brake if i'm on wet grass......
