Brake pedal adjustment 2021 V7 E5 850?
« on: June 20, 2021, 11:47:48 AM »
Does anyone know how or if the rear brake pedal lever position can be adjusted on the 2021 V7's?  On my previous '13 and '16 Stones, the brake pedal levers engaged studs to limit the upward travel.  These could be reworked or replaced, or the lever itself altered, to adjust the pedal lever upper limit.  It's not at all clear (to me) how the upward limit to the lever travel is controlled on the new V7's.  Any info would be appreciated.  Thanks, Sam

Considering how new these bikes are, You're probably the trailblazer on this.

The pedal o my V7III doesn't seem to be adjustable at all so I dropped it 10mm by adding a length of aluminium bar.
I extended it up about 30mm to guide my toe to the peg.

Nice job, but I'm looking to RAISE the toe peg by about 10mm.  Surely, someone here has figured out how to raise the lever upper limit in these bikes.  From what I can determine, this type of pedal is on the V7III, V7 E5, VT85 and maybe  V9 models.  These levers don't use pinch-clamps on the toe pegs, so the eccentric toe pegs sold by GTM, etc, won't fit.  Thanks again for any advice.

If the peg is the same as the V7 i,ii, and iii-by that I mean a threaded lever that the toe piece treads into, my adapters will work to raise/lower by almost an inch depending on orientation of the adapter.  It's a two minute install on the 750 V7's.

If it truly uses the same set up as the V85TT, then the ones GTM sell do work as I installed a folding peg on the brake lever on mine after bending the original. Perhaps a picture is in order.

Unfortunately, the V85's use the pinch clamp and the V7 850's use the screw-in type toe pegs.

If the screw in is the same as the previous 750 V7's, I have the solution.

And I appreciate how nice they are every time I get on my Milano!

Did you decide to make another batch?

THX John.
I made a third and final batch a bit ago.  2 sets left and then it's on to the next thing.  As BigWeld said, "see a need, fill a need."
