Here's my calliper with some buggy pads hanging over the edges of the backing plates to give a little more contact.

Did you strip the thread in the little plastic bit that holds the top of the cable?
You have to drill out the calliper actuator slightly for the cable. Stoppers are from a buggy throttle brake setup.

Nah didn't strip anything on there, the only part that is moving or giving way slightly is the plastic part that sits next to the servo horn where the cable meets the servo. I might fabricate something similar up that is a bit firmer.

I made one up on one bike that was metal and improved the braking again. Might be ok for road racing however on the dirt the brakes were overkill and locked causing the bike to get out of control so didn't bother again. I don't even use full servo travel to get good brakes for the dirt.

Yeah I think I'll just focus on having fun with it and use the brake as is for now or else the need to modify will take over and take the fun out of it!!

Do you guys attach Mikes feet or leave them off? The manual recommends leaving them so that's what I've done.

Leave em off and remove the foot pegs. Some guys tie the feet back or in to help prevent toe loss ouch lol. I let mine hang free but most of mine are minus toes now.

I've got the side bars on for now so I think I'll leave the pegs till I remove the bars, but that's once I can drive it well enough! Lol

I wouldn't remove the bars if I was you but your call. I just fit shorter rounded bars to still provide protection but get all the lean angle you need. Remove the pegs then for sure.
