Thanks Kevin, if you get around to doing something for mids I’d be first in line. Been thinking of doing an adjustable brake rod for both my ‘04 & ‘06. That crazy ass set up that H.D. Came out with on the “Rubbers” is a convoluted mess. Must have hired in some damn aeronautical engineer?

I will talk to Devin. First blush, does not seem that difficult to make them for mids, now that we have everything set up.

I spoke with Devin, should be no problem. We're going to take some measurements and have some make up...should have them in about 1 month.

One thing you (and anyone else) can do to help us....

Would you like your brake pedal to be higher or lower than the stock position?

We can make it so the adjustment is equal, each direction, but if there is a preference one way or another, we can skew it a bit that direction.

Please let us know.

Thanks,

Kevin

Kevin, my concern is taking up as much slop, accumulated through all the bits and pieces as well as changes in motion, so brake feel comes in quicker. I suspect that until mileage’s accumulate for others there may not be a large market to justify the development costs?

We've already done all the development for 04-13 and 14-Up models with the forwards...for mids it really is just a matter of getting two measurements, and then machining the stainless steel.

We're going to go ahead and do it, with just a very small amount of more adjustment up than down.

Thanks!

Kevin
