after struggling with the parking brake on my 850R for an entire week i've run out of ideas. I replaced everything on my rear brakes (lines, calipers, rotors, parking brake guts, cables) but for the life of me I cannot get the lever to do much of anything. I used a parking brake measurement caliper to set the shoe distance to the rotor had just perfect (one of these: https://www.zoro.com/gearwrench-brake-resetting-gauge-3377/i/G0426155/) but the brake lever in the cabin does not seem to be doing much of anything even when the adjustment bolt is bottomed out completely. Searching all over this & other forums plus youtube has not given me any help at this point as well.

So is there some trick with the lever components I've missed, or maybe my car is missing some piece of the adjuster? (Purchased it a few weeks ago) I never had this problem adjusting the parking brake on my past 850's so i'm nearing my wits end.
