Bluhduh New 950 Rear brake pedal

Twisted my rear brake pedal like a pretzel last night when I highsided into a boulder on the trail. No crash. I tried beating the hell out of the brake pedal to reshape it- absent heat, I don't think it will conform. Any suggestions for an aftermarkwt brake pedal? I've pissed away 2 hours at work looking this am, but am unsuccessful.

I think OEM is the only choice.

I tweaked mine a bit on a boulder but it easily bent back into shape after a little work with a vice and rag.

I'm thinking of buying a spare for the trail though!

Would the standard offroad cable keeper setup that basically ties the brake pedal via braided steel cable to the frame have saved you on that particular get off ? That is one of the add ons I keep on the "to do" list.

cable keeper

Hi Goss. I'm not sure. I don't think I have seen the cable set up on a bike yet. On my bike, a rock caught the tip of the brake pedal and twisted it around under the peg. I was able to use a rock to get it out so I could ride home. Would the cable have prevented that???

Probably. The cable ties off to a place in the frame then the other end loops thru a hole in the brake pedal or thru the pedal webbing itself. It is suppose to be slack enough to allow operation but not so long as to allow it to be caught by a stick or rock and bent out away from the bike. I think you can get a kit with the parts already together or I have seen some make their own with parts from the local hardware store. I bet one of our riders here or in the thumper section has an example they can show you.

Goss is correct . The cable may have saved the pedal. There are also circumstances in which no cable could save a lever and the high side you describe may be one. Is the OEM lever that pricey?

Don't know. I just bid 50.00 on ebay for the one suggested in this link. Thanks for the heads up.

Goss have you found a suitable place to mount the cable, there is no frame there to mount cable to that I could see, and the cover plate is not strong enough, when I get my Touratech skidplate, I think it will provide a good mounting point. The 950 is my only bike that I have not mounted a brake snake to and I really miss it, saved me a lot of levers over the years.

Some nOOb with zero feedback just took you out. Surely yer next bid at 10 seconds will send him back to the PW50 forum.

Nice! I had planned on sniping him anyway. This just makes it easier.

Folding brake tip

I saw one of these somewhere for 9fiddy, can't recall where. May save your new pedal from bending next time.

Just bought a SE so scanning through the Orange Crush Thread Index and Links thread to check what to do with the bike.

Anyway, know seriously old thread but Touratech got a folding lever (ref above post), http://shop.touratech.com/vehicle-eq...-1190-adv.html. 950 not mentioned but had this from the 690 just sold and it fit and works just fine on the SE OEM lever.

Also bigger than OE so nice and simple upgrade.

I used the TT pedal for a little while, but it didn't stand up to the challange. Once bent and cracked, I tossed it onto the same pile as old copies of Dianetics and then proceeded to put the OEM pedal back on. Happy relation with my break since then.
Just my two pfennige.
