Thread: rear brake ( disc) RETRACTION SPRING goes where ?

  1. #1

    rear brake ( disc) RETRACTION SPRING goes where ?

    well this is embarrassing - so much for the " no such thing as stupid question" theory

    but I'm not seeing where the return spring for the rear brake lever , ect attaches ... '78 R100 model, any rear disc answers welcome

    There is tab hanging on the linkage (linkage between pedal & master cylinder actuation lever) with a hole for one end of spring ,

    but where does other / anchor end of spring normally attach ?

    a top down picture from simialr angle of pix below ,
    showing the overall orientation of both the linkage , the tab & the return spring
    would be great, thanks in advance

    Looking at my 78, It looks like you should reverse the spring from the way you have it.
    The other end of the spring fits into a tiny hole on the brace behind where passenger peg bolts to.
    Hope that's some help.

    was afraid of that ! hmm how to hide . needlessly expose spring

    byjove I thinks yours right . The spring is easier to grasp for remove with long shanks rearmost.
    those bauhaus kids were up to so much

    There used to be 3 holes on that bracket! , but I plug welded over the rear sets holes , to tell mine in a herd
    almost welded over the holes for the pack rack too before I realized what those were for ! (hint rhymes w/ " White Krasuers " )
