2013 Tiger Sport Rear Brake Pedal Removal
on: 16 July, 2019, 04:01:29 PM
I thought that this was going to be a simple operation to remove the rear brake pedal.

I removed the clip at the back on the trunnion which links the bake pedal to the master cylinder, but when I tried to undo the hexagon bolt in the centre of the brake pedal, it seems very reluctant to undo, going into what I presume is a blank treaded hole, because there is no access from the back.

I am afraid to put more pressure with my allen key, just in case I cause any damage.

The hexagon centre bolt turns about quarter of a turn anti-clock wise, and then goes tight again.

Any advice would be most appreciated.

It's loctited in proper good. I removed mine & refitted it with blue Loctite, dunno what the factory used but it's mighty strong stuff.

It did come undone ok, I have good Engineering tools that fit like they should. If you're a bit concerned about stripping the hex of snapping the thread, you could warm it up to ease the Loctite. Sure'n use good tools.

Good luck with it.

Yeah, I bought a new bolt and it came pre- impregnated with a red thread lock, just make sure you use a really good hex key with a proper fit

Thank you. Job all done now.

I phoned Total Triumph who told me that the factory use a type of Locktite on the threads, and advised me to unscrew it a bit at a time, going back in, and then out again a bit more. Keep doing this until the bolt is completely free.

I did this, which took at least 15 mins.

It went back a lot easier using a bit of easy break lockseal on the thread.
