So I layed down my father-in-laws silverwing. The damage was minimal, but I snapped the brake pedal shaft and broke the stop switch arm. Both these parts have been discontinued and I was hoping anyone knew a place where I can pick these parts up.



Problem 2: To take off the old shaft it seems like the exhaust is in the way. Not 100% sure and I didn't want to dink around with it until I knew for sure...does anyone know how to remove it? Any help will be GREATly appreciated

Welcome to the forum. Where are you located?



We can probably help you locate these parts. Is the bike a GL500 or a GL650? It makes a difference as the shaft is not the same.



One suggestion is to try ebay. Search for GL500 brake, or Gl650 brake as appropriate.



Does your father-in-law know about the forum? If not, please extend an invitation for him to check it out.

Well well, thats a new one.

I've never known anyone break one of those before

I've seen bent pedals and fixed snapped gear change levers

but that shaft takes a fair bit to break.

Any pics?

Just interested thats all

they be much easier to break when pre bent and impacted a few times.... Not on a CX, but I,ve done similar.





Not sure about the Ex being in the way... but if it's been tweaked you may have to hammer (tap) it out with a drift punch. My favorite tool for getting things loose like axles.

Thank you for all the advice. I will upload some pictures of my utter failure. Ebay had the part I needed. I don't know why I didn't even think of looking there. Also, I did have to hammer the rod out with a screwdriver...but it is off to a promising recovery.
