Off Road Brake Pedal?

7 posts in this topic

Is there an aftermarket rear brake pedal more durable for off road riding? I bent my rear brake pedal coming down a rock water fall on my last ride. It went into my clutch cover and ended my day. Luckily only a crack so I could ride back to the truck. I could simply straighten the stock pedal and continue use, but this is the second time this has happened and I want to avoid in the future. Thanks.

Are you familiar with what a "brake snake" is?

How would a brake snake keep him from smashing the pedal into the clutch cover? All the brake snakes I've seen are cables that prevent it from getting bent outward.

And/or upward. I didn't see the damage, but many times when stuff like this has happened to me, had the pedal not been turned up and rolled in, it wouldn't have hurt the case as much.

Another approach is to attach a flat plate to the backside of the lever to increase the area on which the pedal would bear against the case if pushed straight in.

Hammerhead makes great pedals, hinged, comes with the brake snake...

Pricey though, but will last...

Dug this up on a search. Bent my pedal out today on a chunk of wood. What is the best anchoring point on a 09 450? Had a brake snake sitting at home waiting to be installed. I'm thinking about taking the pedal off and lightly heating it and attempting to straighten to save 85 bucks.
