I want to lower the pedal some - I think one reason for my under-utilizing my rear brake is that I have to lift my foot a too high to catch the stronger part of my foot on the pedal.

Looking at the instructions in the manual, though. It says I just have to loosen the lock nut & turn the linkage rod. I don't see how this is going to happen since the rod looks solid and there's a clevis pin holding it to the pedal extension.

Looking at the pictures of the underside of my bike, it looks like I have to pull the cotter pin from the clevis & remove that, then the rod should turn.

Has anybody done this and is the manual correct?

I've done it, and that's how. I had to give the threads a shot of PB blaster to loosen them up, then it was easy like pie.

So you did or didn't have to do pull the clevis pin on the other end of the rod?

I pulled it. Otherwise, it's unturnable. The manual is conveniently missing that step.

Sorry I didn't answer that in my first reply-- brain fart.

Thanks. Didn't see how it'd work otherwise. Thanks for the suggestion on the PB - didn't think of that.
