Last night I was getting everything squared away on the bike after my little fall at Putnam. The only issue I still have is the spring for the rear brake lever. The sping isnt stetched and the lever/pedal isnt bent but I cant get the spring to hold tension. So when I put it on there is some play in the pedal and it stays on for a couple wiggles then falls off again. Could someone take a picture of their spring so I know I have it on right?

Just for reference, Im talking about the backside where the lever connects to the arm that goes into the rear brake cylinder. There are two tabs (one on the house and the other on the pedal) that the spring attaches to.

Thanks

I have everything I need, I just need to see how the spring is positioned on the tabs.

Its on the backside of the right rearset assymbly and should be located somewhere like this:

Thanks Oni, but I need one of the backside of that. The box is where the spring is at, I just need to see how its fastened into the tabs.

Im in my office right now, but I can take one when I get home. I dont know about the adjustment screw but when I hold the lever up it feels like its where it should be ( but drops about two inches when I let go because the spring wont stay on it.
