Rear rake Lever adjustment?

Can the height of the rear brake lever be adjusted?? I took the rear set off. I see the bolts that hold the master cylinder to the rear set. I tried opening the lock nut, but once i did.. nothing I did would change thge position of the lever? Id like to drop it down atleast an inch?? Thanks for any feedback.

I adjusted mine, but it's aftermarket rearsets. Do you have OEM? I don't know about those.

yes.. just regular oem. The angle for the brake lever is unbellievably high. I literally have to my my leg to get on it.

I turned bolt #12 clockwise... which simply made it go down the rod??? It didn't change the height of the lever at all. Im thinking now.. maybe I was supposed to counter clockwise? (left to right).. after releasing lock nut? #23? any thoughts?http://www.motosport.com/motorcycle/...aster-cylinder

23 is the point which will adjust the pedal height. You want to thread that nut up higher on the shaft which will drop the pedal tip down.

I turned 23, left to right, which moved the nut up the stem. . All it did was create a gap, between itself and the bottom plate it was resting on?

Meaning, it created a gap. . Between 23 and 17?

heres a picture of a rc51 rear master cylinder. When I opened the silver nut (23 in diagram).. all it did was ride up the stem. It didn't do anything to brake lever. Am I supposed to do something AFTER I open 23?

The bracket has a captive nut underneath. Once you get 23 up the shaft a bit, pull the pin out of 17 and thread it up as well. Then re-insert the pin and your lever is in a new position.

^ That makes perfect sense.
You have to spin the clevis up or down the threads for actual lever position change. Then retighten that jam-nut on top.
