Aftermarket brake pedal for KTM 690 Enduro R

Aftermarket brake pedal for KTM 690 Enduro R

OEM brake pedal is made of relatively soft aluminum. In case of direct impact, pedal bends easily. That is OK, since it prevents it from snapping, but it is easy to put a hole in clutch cover. Picture of OEM pedal bellow. 

For my previous KTM 690 Enduro I made aluminum reinforcement plate and I weld it to the OEM lever. More info here. That worked well. I also rounded sharp edges on OEM foot pad, as The Letter J suggested here

But for new bike, I decided to replace the OEM brake pedal with much stronger aftermarket pedal.

There are two on the market that I am aware of - Rally Raid brake pedal and Cleanspeed brake pedal.

Both are very nice billet units, with similar price. My riding buddy has Rally Raid pedal on his 2008 690 Enduro and he is very happy with it. But I went for Cleanspeed unit, since I really liked their Stepped pedal pad (purchased separatly). Also, I got recommendation for it from few riders I trust and friend from US helped me to get it. Thanks Bill!

I am really impressed with craftsmanship and overall design of Cleanspeed pedal. It is very nicely machined and has two sealed ball bearings "for a smoother action and longer life". 

 

As I mentioned above, I also went for Stepped pedal pad, in orange. 

Cleanspeed pedal is much more substantial than OEM pedal. 

 

Installing is relatively easy, but torque wrench is a must, IMO. Footrest hanger must be removed, but it is 5 minute job. Everything is a spot on and fits perfectly. 

There is more clearance between clutch cover and brake pedal. Also, Stepped pedal pad looks more gentle than OEM foot pad. 

After installation I did short ride, and everything was very smooth. Gros Buck from Advrider installed one in August 2012th and reported everything was still good in September 2015th - reported here. I hope my pedal will serve me that well too.

In early July 2017 we went for a ride through Italian Alps. Only road riding. Four days of riding through the Alps, many passes and approx. 1000 km of twisties. Weather was great and bikes were flawless. Here are some impressions about Mosko Moto Scout 25 duffle bag and Moto Skiveez Adventure undergarment I used on this trip.

I installed steering stabilizer on my 2016. KTM 690 Enduro for two reasons. First, I liked an idea of stabilizer support during fast rides over rocky terrain. Next, I always felt front of 690 is 'too light' on pavement, with off-road tires on. higher bars were added benefit.
