    CB360 rear brake arm?

    In theory (or in reality) would it make any difference if the rear brake arm was rotated 180 degrees? I want to turn the arm 180 degrees so it will pull from the top instead of the bottom. It makes a rear set pedal easier to fit.

    Would it matter which way the cam opens the shoes?

    I don't think so, but I've been wrong before.

    Thanks PJ. I figured something like 2 or 3 percent.

    I'm used to BSAs and Triumphs so I shouldn't notice.
