This is the clevis.

I removed the pin and shortened the threaded rod a bit

The rod may be too long. Remove the clevis and grind off a few threads.

I also left the locknut off to shorten the distance between the clevis and the master cylinder even more. Use locktight on the threads instead.

Hi Rob, not keen on the 'no lock nut'. How about drilling a tiny hole in the piston rod UNDERNEATH the clevis...then lockwire it to prevent shaft rotation.

You would need to remove the master cylinder to drill the hole. Not keen on that either........ I did this a year ago when I added the lowered foot pegs. Over 10,000 miles and no problems.

Why would you need to remove the Master Cylinder? Just do it in-situ.

the rod can turn (revolve) and move sideways. It would need to be held stationary (in vice) to drill a hole. The clevis and rod would need to be drilled together. I feel that the lock-nut is a bit of overkill and really not necessary, however, your bike, your decision.
