Help needed...

Hi all,

I am looking to extend the rear brake pedal on the fireblade 2007 model, I have searched the net but to no avail, does anyone know where i can buy an extension plate to go over the existing lever?

I have bought off ebay a spare complete right hand side foot peg, heel plate and lever, so i am not bothered about cutting and welding if needed.

Cut it

sleeve it with tubing and weld it to the position length required.

Extend it how?

Do you want more length, or the "peg" on the end to be longer (i.e. more width)?

 

If you have a spare and welding gear then it should be simple.

Hi all......

........Sorry about the delay in replies, been at work, I need to make the brake peg longer as i have an artificial leg on the right side and cannot bend my ankle (i can reach the brake now but sometimes i miss) :lol::lol:

Stealth i am in South Wales, at the moment i am waiting on another lever from ebay so i can have a bit of a play with ideas, but any ideas/help would be welcome.

Homer..

WTF? I can't even begin to imagine how you can control pressure on a rear brake pedal with an artificial leg so fair play to ya for going this route rather than thumb brake or just ignoring the rear entirely..

Sadly I'm up near Birmingham which makes it a tad impractical to hook up for a look see but it should be easy enough to do.Anyone with a TIG welder should be able to sort it for ya. If you can't find anyone local you could always cut it up and get it to the length you want then post it up to me and I'll do the welding at work.Won't take me 10 mins to do. :biggrin:

Cheers StealthSV...

...Yeah it can be difficult sometimes depending on the bike, but the blade is ok, its just recently i have had a new leg and the foot position has changed from the last one, so instead of altering the leg all the time its easier to alter the brake pedal.
I have a few mates (one is a toolmaker in the Royal Mint) so i should be able to sort something out. Many thanks for the offer of help though and if i need any advice i will ask.

As for having the leg, its not that bad really, i am below the right knee missing, so i still have my knee and strangely enough i can feel the pressure through the foot. Mind you, I have had this since birth and I'm 43 now, so well used to it.:wink::wink:

Thank you to all who replied.
