Rear brake pedal freeplay

Woe unto you that bought the first model year of a major remake, perhaps this section can help address any 2014 and later model Ural "imperfections". Here's a special section for folks with the latest rigs to discuss 2014 and later model-related topics such fuel injection, 3-wheel disc brakes, hydraulic steering dampers, spin-on oil filters and other anomalies that don't belong on true Russsian motorcycle ;-P We've gone from using big hammers and greasy wrenches to needing computers and Ouija boards in order to fix our rigs.
Forum rules
Please keep this section specific to issues pertaining to 2014 and later models such as fuel injection, sidecar and rear disc brakes and so forth. Ask general or non-2014 and later specific questions in the main Hammerin' & Wrenchin' section.

On a slightly different matter, the sidecar brake squeals but I’m thinking this is from the very low kms don’t since new.

The stock organic pads can squeak a bit. I'm now using semi-sintered and yet just lately the rear has started doing it again.

Yeah, what 'Cookiemech' said. I think the reason the bleed nipple is down is because that brake caliber was not designed for this machine.

+1 for semi-sintered. Also, do leave some free-play in the rear brake foot pedal. Otherwise when things heat up, your pads will be rubbing on your rotor, get really hot, and burn up.

Bled the brakes, made sure all air bubbles out and fresh fluid and it’s all good. Braking is now consistent. Thanks
