Adjusting the brake pedal position

The top of the brake pedal should be positioned approximately 82 mm (3.2 in) for XVS1100 and 99 mm (3.9 in) for XVS1100A above the top of the footrest as shown. Periodically check the brake pedal position and, if necessary, have a Yamaha dealer adjust it.


A soft or spongy feeling in the brake pedal can indicate the presence of air in the hydraulic system. If there is air in the hydraulic system, have a Yamaha dealer bleed the system before operating the motorcycle. Air in the hydraulic system will diminish the braking performance, which may result in loss of control and an accident.
