Rear Brake Jiggery Pokery

Really chuffed with myself as I managed to replace the sprockets on my Honda XR125L, despite having to wrestle with the back wheel. All succesfully done, but just can't get the back brake to work as it did before.

I have to screw the adjuster on the pedal so far up the pedal is practicaly pointing at the ground, and the bolt on the brake arm to the is pulling so tight it sometimes jams and often the brake light stays on. I loosten everything enough for it all not to jam and stay on, then test with rider and it just doesn't work.

Please help as this trusty commuter and weekend trail basher is sorely missed.

Thinking on it as I write could I have put the wheel to far back should I move it all forwards?

chain

Have you put bigger sprockets on or a shorter chain? I suggest you count the teeth and the links.
