Rear Brake Freeplay

Hello guys! I was trying to change my rearset and I played with the rear brake freeplay and I cant find the right adjustment. Is there a tutorial on how to put it back to normal for the 2017 Abs R3? When I try to push the brake level down its so stiff. P.s, Kemimoto rearset sucks! I dont think it fits the 2017 R3. Thats a photo of my rearset and how it turned out.

China parts never work like they should. The bolt on your master cylinder adjusts pedal height, not free play, so it sounds like your pedal is binding.

Would flushing or bleeding be a good solution to fix this?

If the rear brake was working properly before you started changing parts, and you did not open any brake line/component fittings, there will be no benefit to bleeding the system. The brake fluid may need to be changed, but this problem has nothing to do with routine maintenance. The brake fluids are in a closed system. Unless the system opened, or somehow broken and exposed, there's nothing to bleed out. Sounds like something is either misaligned, rubbing, binding, etc. IF YOU CAN, I'd recommend replacing the original components to see how the brakes work, before making too many adjustments to any linkage. Sorry for your problems, and it may be an easy fix. Because what you replaced should have been pretty straight forward, with minimal problems.

To ride or not to ride? What a stupid question! ... Anon
