Enduro Brake Pedal
Sunday, Aug 4 2013 [1288 miles]
This is the BMW Enduro Brake Pedal. At least that’s what I think it is called. It has an extension that when pivoted into place gives the pedal extra height. The height should help me more easily control the rear brake when standing on the pegs off pavement.
The footpeg has to come off to get at the brake pedal pivot hardware. The pivot is held with a T40 bolt. It didn’t take much torque to brake it free. I’ll use some blue loctite when installing just in case. The pedal connects to the brake master cylinder piston with a pin that is held in place with a cotter pin. The cotter pin will be replaced. The only other connection is the spring. It’s not all that powerful and is easy to disconnect with a spring puller/hook.
The first image shows the two pedals. I fumbled around a bit until I realized its easier to put the (greased) pivot into the pedal before trying to put the pedal in place. I then installed the pin, washer, and a new cotter pin. The last step was to hook up the return spring.
These two picture show the pedal in the sitting and standing positions. I think I’ll need to adjust the pedal height down a bit for the sitting position. I had to do that for the shift lever after installing the lower footpegs. I’ll wait until I take a test ride to make that determination. So far all I’ve done is sit on the bike to make sure it’s close enough for a test ride.
