    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 metal on?

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks
    Lars

    I've never seen an aftermarket brake pedal for an XR4. Your quest may take a bit of metalwork.

    on my xr650l i welded a bigger foot pad on the brake pedal for wheelies too. i sold the bike a few years ago though.

    I'm familiar with the quality of work you've posted here over the years. Any pics? :evil
