hello I have run into an issue, my EK brake just barely makes contact which makes getting in gear without grinding impossible. The pad is brand new and I don't see any adjustment, I was thinking of adding a shim. Any insight into my dilemma would be great THANK YOU!

I looked at the OOM, and you need to adjust the CLUTCH.

 

The procedure is the same fot the EK7 and EL10.

 

here's a link to the EK7 OOM:

See page 14 for that adjustment.

the link that connects the clutch lever to the idler arm has a hole at each end and a pin on the lever and idler arm that tend to get worn out and loose the link is easy enough to replace but the lever and icler arm are more involved

Issue resolved it sheared the pin on the pedal, was still hanging on so was not free turning. It is all back together and functions properly now thank you for all the help.
