Looking at the OP pic: the metal brake noodle is not properly seated. The bottom of the noodle should be seated in the swing arm, with wire and boot (little rubber object) only over the tire. With everything properly seated, there should be 2-3 inches of wire past the retainer nut... not what is hanging out there in the photo. I believe the length will be about right, once seated properly.
