Just picked up my new to me bike and the pedal brake is so small and also have to push so far to really get any action.

It is a 2000 1500SE.

Is there a replacement or pedal that can be added and are the brakes that soft? Scared the crap out of me coming back from pick up, first couldn't find the damn pedal and then had to go as far to get any breaking. I am used to just touching the brake and it is there. Hope I make enough sense to get the question across.

Thanks

I would suggest you bleed brakes.

The pedal is also linked to the front.

Bleed front LH first then rear.

I agree with Robin. Bleed the brakes first. Kuryakyn make a nice bolt on pedal end cover that is obviously a bit larger than the stock end. That might work better for you.

You might also consider installing Speed Bleeders at this time - makes the task quite easy...
