Title: Method for disposing a brake for motorcycles having foot boards

Abstract: A brake for motorcycles includes an improved brake lever assembly having abrake pad arm configured for attachment at one end to a brake pad, andconnected at an opposing end to a brake actuator arm by a rotatablecollar. The brake pad arm and the brake actuator arm are disposed relativeto one another such that the angle of the brake pad arm is lower than theprior art, thereby enabling actuation of the brake with less foot movementand causing less fatigue in frequent braking situations. While the priorart typically has an angle of 30-35 degrees between the brake pad arm andthe brake actuator arm, the present invention maintains a preferred offsetangle of 50 to 65 degrees between the brake pad arm and the brake actuatorarm.
