Rearset problem

Bought these from another member a few months ago, somehow they worked for him, I'm just not getting it. . . .Can't get rear master cyl linkage to connect to rear brake pedal





This is what they are supposed to look like. Doesn't the bracket with 4 holes look completely different than what I have?

I don't see that as the problem, the master either needs to move out or the lever needs to move in for a proper alignment.....

there is a spacer that goes in the location where your mentioning. i circled it for you. the linkage off the mc should adjust down to meet the connector on the right side. if not then maybe you switched sides like lucky said.

ripper is prolly right too.

That mount you have for the MC is still OEM.
Most aftermarket one have a "spacer" with a bearing at the end.

I have the spacer.



Look at this pic, this is the only way it will line up, look how low the brake lever is









Nothing is switched. Look at this pic.

My idea was maybe to come up with a way to lengthen the threaded bolt that goes into the MC?

Check this out, the one on the left is OEM. But get this, the one on the right for these rearsets fits over the back of the rear brake pedal but if you look in the picture from their website I posted, they don't have it connected that way, it is connected off to the side. WTF?

I recently installed satos. There is a different end that goes on the master cylinder and there is a spacer to fill the gap.
