RVF 400 rear brake return spring

Post by nightowl11 » Sun Dec 23, 2018 11:34 pm

I am attempting to install after market rear sets on my 1994 RVF 400. In order to do that I have to add a banjo bolt pressure switch and a return spring to the rear brake. Does any one know what size return spring I need for this application? Woodcraft makes springs but I am unsure what size since they don't have the RVF listed. Thanks

I'd go with a pukka HRC elastic band for now :)

And then would look to find one of the small ones that spring off the bottom of the shaft - find one adn experiment.

I use WR Battlestep pegs - and use elastic on it...I should probably find a small spring

I asked a similar question a while back and got pointed to these.

Never actually got round to buying one and trying it but might be worth a punt
