Japanese term or phrase: ハンドブレーキのひきしろ
What's the correct term for ひきしろ?

Meaning of ひきしろ is as follows.
自動車やバイクなどで、ブレーキレバーを引いてからブレーキがかかるまでの間の部分

Similarly, I guess 踏みしろ is the opposite of ひきしろ.

Thanks.

Explanation:
I am not sure if this is used in writing, but I just refer to this as "play" - Japanese term is 遊び - which refers to the distance between foot on pedal (or hand on lever) and stopping action occuring.

This is common usage (see the Google web reference)
