    Default larger ? break pedal??

    hey folks, I have a 2011 ultra tri-glide, I notice when I use the back break, not to much stopping power.. thought it might be because I can't get to much "foot"
    on the pedal, as it is close in, and, my right leg is a lil' weak..so.. searched this forum, read a post or 2 that the back break is not that strong anyway..
    but
    still want to put a bigger pedal or something on to make it easier to reach..
    I get some net ad's from bike part places.. not sure what will fit, and, do I need to get the whole arm it's on, kuryakin? has one.. or what have you guys done.. any thing??
    thanks in advance!
    Jack
    oh, waitin to get the trike back from the dealer on the "hard to steer" back end way unlevel deal..

    Those voices in my head may not be real, but they have some really good ideas.

    The origional pad is installed just like the ones on a car. The pad is just stretched over the pedal.
    Getting the old one off is not too hard, especially since you are where its warm. You'll just run a screwdrive blade under the edge of the pad UNDER the pedal and then pry (stretch) the edge down and out over the pedal. Once you get the one side over, grab a pair of vice-grips and pull the old pad up and off.

    Don't fret Jack, this is going to be a lot easier than you think!


    Under the pad is simply a plate with a slot in it. You'll just drop the bolt through and screw on the nut.


    It won't come with the kit, but be sure to put a little Loctite (blue) on the bolt threads so that it won't vibrate loose.

    In nothin' flat you'll be out riding.
