question on a TTR125

So, I bought a 2012 TTR125L for my son's upcoming birthday, and I have a few questions, but one in particular involves the "Indicator Plate" on the rear wheel.... first, what is it? Is it an indicator of wear for the inner brake pads in the drum so you can tell the wear and when to redo the brakes?? It appears as though this somehow got bent in the picture if you can see it. There's a linear slot that is on the drum exterior that I am guessing this "needle" is supposed to be lined up in. I have a new part coming, along with a service manual. I don't have the owners manual, but does anyone in the know want to enlighten me as to where it is supposed to go/be lined up and proper usage? I'd appreciate it!

Found this, very helpful! The owners manual touches on it as saying what it is, but that's about where it ends.... Still doesn't really explain how to utilize it.

That piece (called the Wear Indicator Plate) should be separate from the brake cam lever, and it should have some indexing splines so it has to be tied in to the brake cam shaft.

All you do is adjust the brake pedal, then push it down and with the brake on the pointer has to be between the two extremes. If it goes past the forward limit the brake shoes are worn and need to be replaced.

Most excellent! I thank you sir! I was kind of thinking that but for some screwy reason I was thinking the indicator was supposed to be in contact with the groove.... then it struck me that it just has to align underneath it. Duh.....

Appreciate the assistance!
