690 rear brake pedal replacement

I finally broke my rear brake lever by re-bending it after making a pretzel of it too many times. I have a new and improved version coming from cleanspeed.com. I was just looking at the assembly and, if I am not mistaken I have to remove the swingarm bolt and the whole foot peg assembly to install the pedal. Is this right?

I guess you could always come in from the other side of the bike.

Yes, you need a 19mm socket to remove the swing arm bolt and a narrow 10 mm socket to remove the two bottom bolts. Do not worry...the swingarm will not fall off of the bike. If you don't have the "R" model you will need to order the brake pedal pivot bolt for the R because it is a different size than what the E uses. Also keep in mind that the bolt is Reverse Threaded so if you try and tighten the bolt it will in fact loosen.

The job looks like its going to be a royal pain....its very easy.

Sweet, that's what though but I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something.

Just ordered mine.

I've already upgraded to the new flavor of brake pedal. So I already have the large shaft.

Put a big post-it note on your bike right now saying REVERSE THREAD on the bolt Seth is talking about.

When I replaced the lever I STILL forgot about it until I'd puzzled over it for a moment. But then I'm an idiot.

I also went ahead and bought the TT folding tip while I was at it. No bends or breaks so far!

How to remove the rear brake assembly?

Quote:

Which bolt is reversed threaded?
the 19mm swingarm bolt or the bolt holding the brake assembly to the back
of this protective shield thing that the footpeg is attached to.

I've removed the lower two 10 mm bolts but am stymied

I have poor rear brake feel and want to clean and lube the pivot for the
brake pedal. Its a new to me 2008 690.
================================================== ====================


Figured it out- the 19mm bolt is normal, then slide the footpeg hanger directly rearwards,
the brake pivot bolt (Torx) is reversed
