Mine? My what? My brake pads are fine, probably 4.5-5 mm per side. I did get out the oxy torch when I got home and fire up that puppy. Heated up the shift lever to red hot in just the right spot, eaaaased
the lever into place, then let it cool. Done.
My next project is lengthen the kick stand by one inch and add a significantly larger foot.Current area is probably only 2 square inches or less, which is sexy but not very functional offroad. It's like a high-heeled shoe.
