Brake Cable Adjustment time

edited September 2017 in Rover
The brake cable adjuster on the brake levers are all the way out on the left brake. It's time to shorten the cable some. Watched both videos on brake and trike maintenance, but it seems experience and trail & error are needed to adjust the length of the stretched cable.

Am assuming one would:
• Screw the Barrel Adjusters in all the way
• Check the the cable and housing are where they should be and there are no gaps
• Loosen the cable screw
• Pull the brake cable, checking the rest of the cable assembly, until it is taught but not strained
• Tighten the cable screw
• Check that the brakes function and there is no heavy drag. Adjust where necessary.

Did I miss anything or is it that simple?
