Periodic Maintenance Procedures
Check that the brake cam lever [A] comes to an 80
with the brake rod or cable [C] when the brake is fully applied.
If it does not, adjust the brake cam lever angle.
Cam Lever Angle
Since a cam lever angle greater than 90
effectiveness, cam lever angle adjustment should not be
Cam Lever Angle Adjustment
Do not depress the brake pedal deeply in order to separate the
brake rod from the brake cam lever joint, this may extend the
brake spring beyond its allowable spring extension.
Rotate the rear brake panel clockwise as far as it will go with
the brake rod inserted into the brake cam lever joint, then
depress the brake pedal lightly, the brake rod will be separated
from the brake cam lever joint.
Remove the wheel (see Wheels/Tires chapter).
Remove the bolt [A], and take off the cam lever [B].

Rear Cam Lever Mounting Bolt: 7 N
When remounting the cam lever, be sure that the position of
the wear indicator on the serrated shaft is not altered.
A change in cam lever angle is caused by wear of internal
brake parts. Whenever the cam lever angle is adjusted, also
check for drag and proper operation, taking particular note of
the brake lining wear indicator position.
In case of doubt as to braking effectiveness, disassemble and
inspect all internal brake parts. Worn parts shall result in the
brake to lock or fail.
Install the wheel (see Wheels/Tires chapter).
