Here's a strange one. I'm changing from boards to pegs and bought the pictured NOS RHS brake pedal. it doesn't fit the splined shaft - even tightened right up it just flops around. I checked the part number for the shaft and its the same for the Eldo (my bike) and the 850GT and the Ambassador. All the splines on both bits are in good shape....I could 'shim' it (think a strip of an Irn bru can) but seems a shame.. perhaps its been modified

It might have stretched around the splines due to being overtightened at some time. I've fixed this sort of thing by taking the bolt out, squeezing the "ears" together in the vice so that the slit closes up then using a hacksaw to widen the slit. Doesn't do the chrome a lot of good though.

That's not a bad idea Ian, thanks. Odd though because it is NOS - unused, or certainly looks it. Maybe its been hanging around on a shelf for years because its damaged

Is it an illusion of the photo or is that pedal sitting on top of the footrest mounting? In other words, is it the right pedal at all? I don't claim to know anything about them, it just looks wrong to me.

Its because its loose mate - it's just placed there - if it was clamped on to the spindle it would be higher up but yes it sits behind the footpeg

Looks the same as the one on my Eldo, which I am running with boards.

The splined shaft is different, footboards vs. pegs. The footboard shaft is slightly smaller at the splined section. The footpeg shaft is part number 1267 5405, the footboard shaft part number is 1367 5440.

AH!! It's deliberate to stop you putting the "wrong" pedal on?

Harpermoto actually stock 1267 5405, Wow! Do you know by any chance if the other parts are the same? In particular the lever on the other end of the spindle (that connects to the brake rod)

Yes, the "bellcrank" and other bits are the same.
