[quote quote=15160] I think I have the same 7/8” as Joe and although the pedal is low it works great. [/quote]
I initially had the same problem with the pedal being low. I somewhat expected that, given the smaller bore needs more stroke to provide the same volume of fluid to the wheels. I then replaced the flex hose to the rear axle (which was original to the car and thus a little scary) and also went through and carefully adjusted the brakes at each wheel. Wow, what a difference. Pedal travel is minimal, and the force is still low. I drove this 2600 miles in June for Power Tour and Homecoming, including some very twisty mountain roads, and the brakes were phenomenal.
