Re: Master Cylinder Bracket

PS This is what I did. The 2" X 4" TS has a spacer plate welded on back. The two plate design is very stiff and easier to make.

Re: Master Cylinder Bracket

Re: Master Cylinder Bracket

Yes, I completely agree with you. Getting the highest ratio of (brake arm length)/(actuating lever length) is most important.

Re: Master Cylinder Bracket
