So @Deano first I should check if the brake lever pivot is not seized. Then do a complete bleeding of the fluid and refill with fresh fluid. And also diagnose if it is the master cylinder or caliper.( the way @mitchy mentioned Sunday).

@if u have any picture on the adjustment of the lever and changing the stroke that will be great.

That's what I'd do mate. I'll try to post some pics later today.

Here's some pics. Shows 8mm and clear hose on rear caliper, brake pedal and clip. Undo 10mm locknut (spanner down) while holding forked shaft with screwdriver. Back locknut down toward master cylinder a few turns. Turn fork 4-5 turns in your case toward master cylinder, retighten locknut, put pedal and clip back on and see how it feels. May need more, maybe less.
Cheers
Deano

Yeah mate, it is. Took a run up the Atherton Tablelands a few weeks ago and it pissed down. Bike sat for a couple of weeks before I could clean it. Noticed the bracket had broken off. It had been welded on by my son after it came off a while ago.


Unfortunately my boy's welding was much better than the original cos this time it's torn a hole in the muffler. Only noticed it when I posted the pictures. I was waiting for someone to notice and chip in.


Put my Arrow system on yesterday and will get him to repair the HP. Going to leave that bracket off. Never did line up properly anyway no matter what I did and not really needed anyway.


Cheers

Sorry for the late reply. I had to give the wife a little attention.(she was complaining I was spending more time with the bike than her). So over the weekend I adjusted the brake lever exactly how @Deano mentioned and now it works properly engaging the brake light switch. My gas tank was full. I was being lazy. But instead of removing the tank to flush and refill with new brake fluid I just removed the 8mm bolt holding the reservoir to the bike and slowing moved it outside and secured it to my bike frame. After that I removed the screws to the cap of the reservoir and bled the whole brake system. I was extra careful not to spill any brake fluid. Took it for a ride but was too scared to use the rear brake at all. I will let u guys know if anything happens in the future. Thanks for all ur help.
