been meaning to look into that after noticing it's setup differently than stock. Maybe PO just repositioned the drum & arm from the bottom to top. If not stock brake rod, probably pw. I think it's a great mod getting the brake rod further away from the ground and more protected going thru swingarm. Believe it or not, I bought a third cheap seat to smooth out the top more. Should arrive Fri. Haven't gotten the vinyl yet. Will post pics of the project.
