You'll end up with some of the "foot peg mount end" unpainted but you'll need to remove the covering to get the brake peddle to work.

You might put masking on the well greased peddle, clean the "footpeg mounting end", press the peddle a couple of times then paint the end of the foot peg mount. The grease on the end will keep paint from flowing in the joint and all the end is protected from rust.

All unpainted will be covered by grease throughout the life of the bike anyway so it wont rust.


YUP,sand off all the paint/powdercoat then a good gob a grease smeared evenly around the shaft and the inside of the pedal pivot.Before applying the gob a grease If after sanding the paint off of the shafting and the pedal feels like it still wants to bind then be looking for any high spots and sand or file those off and it should be goodtogo.

Suggest you remove the paint/powdercoating.


I'm having a heck of a time getting the rear brake pedal on. It just doesn't want to budge or fit. Seems kid of like common sense. Once it is on, should it be snug or free moving? Thoughts? Thanks.
