The cable is probably going to be too short. It's a tight fight on my z50. The lever won't ever snap back. Mine hangs up a little too.




mine doesn't hang up at all?







If you can take some pics on how you have everything set up. It shouldn't be that bad, routing mine was a little bit of a pain in the ass. I just ran it through the forks and along the frame.

Pics would help. Dont know if you have the spring on the HB not on the brake rod. Should help the lever to rebound. Also make sure that the screw holding the lever to the mount is not wrenched on too tight. could cause it not to operate smoothly. Hope this helps.

you need a cable with the long threaded end for a drum brake. try to spray from lube or wd40 down both ends of the cable, and lube the lever too



i have a really stiff spring over the back of the rod, so it returns fine. go to ACE, they have boxes full of springs

Try routing it from the lever, down through the middle of the handlebars, under the tank, then down to the swingarm. Make sure there are no tight kinks or bends, the smoother the better. Lube that cable too, that could help it snap back.
