rear brake pedal

  1. Transalp
    How is the rear brake pedal in 650 removed? Do I just slacken the bolt at number 13 and pull the lever off?
  2. Transalp
    I'd like to experiment with a modification to the rear brake lever of my XL700 Transalp but want to keep my original lever in case it goes horribly wrong! Are the splines the same across the different Transalp models (or any other Hondas)? This would open up the choice of spare parts/price...

    Hi, I am a new forum member, in London, have been lurking for a while and getting a lot out of this great site/forum. I got my 2011 700XLVA a few months ago and have just started doing some servicing. The bike has 16,000 miles on it now, loving it so far, so much more comfortable and...
  4. Africa Twin
    Hi all, Today I was servicing the rear brake and all was going well until I started trying to bleed the system, after pumping the rear brake pedal for over an hour I couldn't get any pressure at all. I have blead brakes a few times before and haven't had this issue. The reservoir was full...

    Brakes!! Guys, would you be kind enough to show me the rear brake switch position on your frame. My bike came needing a rear brake switch, I bought an original Honda switch, part no 35350-KE5-405 but I can't see how the switch attaches to the frame by the rear brake pedal, there's no obvious...

    Hey all, first post! I need to lower my pedal height but the clevis is pretty tight on the pushrod, i can't get anything to hold onto the pushrod as there is not enough room, but was wondering if I can remove the pushrod without leakage? I can't quite tell from the diagrams and wondered if...

    Hi all, Fiona and myself decided to go take a look at this new prototype Honda Africa Twin at the NEC last weekend, I took a few pics so thought I'd share my thoughts on the new bike and the show in general with you folks. We flew down from Inverness to Birmingham on the Friday and stayed for...

    Can anyone help me with this simple task? How do I take up the free play on the rear brake of a 2005 650 Transalp ? .:thumbup::thumb: :thumbup::thumb: :thumbup::thumb:
  10. Mechanical Advice
    Hi Folks A bit of advice sought and at the same time provide some feedback on a new farkle. I recently purchased the following SW Motech footpegs for my TA. they are, in usual German fashion, well made and fit perfectly, taking a few minutes to fit. They have 2 height settings - original and...

    As some of you know from my tracker thread i am finding it hard to "bond" with my Dommie project but I dont know if I am expecting too much . Now I never thought the bike would be fast but I was expecting to get to about 90mph and be able to lift the front wheel in low gears . so am I just...

    Dear all, I have a question about the rear brake pedal on my '98 Honda XR400R. The standard brake pedal fitted does not have a big enough contact patch for me...especially when riding standing up or doing wheelies. is there a larger Brake pedal available? or should I just try and weld a bit more...

    I went out for a wee run today and was happily going up the A7 towards Edinburgh, dry, sun shining, what more could you ask for? On the top of Middleton moor there is a straight bit of road with a layby about half way along on the left, as I got nearer I could see there were a few scooters and 2...

    Hi All Trying to make my bike as drop proof as possible. I've got a bendy gear selector, hand/lever guards, and will soon buy some stubby indicators. This means that the most vulnerable part is now the rear brake lever, as I've found out numerous times. Any hints for crash-proofing it, or...
