KTM 690E - Broken Brake Pedals

I started this thread to see if there is a large enough interest in getting a billet brake lever built for our KTM 690Es. I have not broken mine yet, but enough people have that I would purchase a billet item for piece of mind. By the way, a stocker goes for $76.00 at KTM-Parts.com

Just post a quick reply to let the machinist/builders know there is a need and a market, that would be great.

So far I have contacted Gary Emig at Emig Racing, Colin at Stenhouse, and a machinist in AZ as well. I have not heard from Gary yet, Colin expressed some desire to build one as did the AZ machinist.

UPDATE: Jim in AZ, says he needs to probably make around 30 for a good return on his time. Here is his website. It looks like he definitely has the skills to make these for us.

Thanks

+1 for me.

I wish I could raised that pedal at least 1 1/4" higher. My soles are 1 1/2" thick ...

i've had a load of emails and pms asking for them. i can make them and will if required, but i don't want to fight another advrider for them. if you guys don't want to do a group buy or be stuck with a whack of parts let me know. i can make a bunch and hold inventory so you don't have to buy 3 at a time. the goal is to only need 1, isn't it? my last lc4 was sold after several years of hard riding... and the original brake pedal/lever. why can't we build a better mousetrap?

mine has been bent once..and I was able to bend it back. I think they made it out of the same material that they made the wrench for the front wheel out of...some special bendy aluminum. Basically that wrench is worthless. I will pull the brake pedal off this weekend and try to model it up for Ryan.

If Seth can get me a decent model I will get one made up and have him try it out. If it works I can have them made in a week or so.

If you don't mind Ryan, Think about adjustability. My boot's soles are 1 1/2" thick cause i'm only 5'4" with 26" inseam ...
