Rear brake pedal ?
« on: April 17, 2018, 04:30:03 PM »
Hi as a potential new owner of a 950 I was wondering if anyone has the same view as myself concerning the very small rear brake leaver ,that imho is far to small and interferes with  its use . So has anyone modded or swapped out the pedal with another model to improve this . Also has anyone any recommendations for some larger foot pegs for the  rider and passenger .
Cheers

Ferret, the size of the brake pedal and pegs never been any sort of issue for me . The only comment I would have , and it has been reported by several on this Forum,  is that it is a bit of a reach to get down to it with your toe and it could do with being a bit higher. Some have made some alterations to adjust this  - for me I live with it no probs as most of my braking is front brake and I tend to use the rear mostly for slow speed control

I thought the brake pedal looked ridiculously, race bike small but it has honestly never been a problem even stood on the pegs. In fact the only problem standing up is my heel catches the exhaust shield but that's another topic.
If I knew what I was doing I would probably stop doing it.

I suppose that I never really noticed because the first thing that I did was to remover the rubbers from the front pegs as someone had said that they could pop out and be lost.
