Foot brake pedal bushing

Hey Guys has anyone replaced their brake pedal bushing ? I don't see any replacements for it online. I could turn one on the lathe if I had to.

Re: Foot brake pedal bushing

I don't remember the 45 brake pedal having a bushing.

Re: Foot brake pedal bushing

Leo, someone must have bored the hole larger and installed a bushing. My brake pedal on my WLA is not bushed either.

Re: Foot brake pedal bushing

Harleys of that period have more bushes than Hyde Park!

My Parts Book lists 2956-39 as "brake pedal". Illustration shows pedal, grease nipple and indication of a bush. The pedal from my WLC definitely has a bush. Looks as though

(1) early and late models nay differ

(2) it was deemed to be a single assembly with no user-serviced parts
Shoot, a man could have a good weekend in Dallas with all that stuff...

Re: Foot brake pedal bushing

Thanks guys, I'm going to turn one on my lathe. It wobbles way to much for my liking. I've just finished putting together the trans and engine and now moving on to make sure the frame and everything else is like new. :?

Re: Foot brake pedal bushing

It may be a variation over time. Later models have a range of differences - mudguards, grips etc - aimed at simplifying production and saving materials. These bikes were built for a hard, short life ...

Re: Foot brake pedal bushing

Hi guys,

I work at the company that distributes many of the 45 parts througout europe. Although you cannot buy directly at me, I will try to give pointers on this forum every now and then as I see that in the UK there seems to be many questions on parts and availability..
In this case this is the part you are looking for
http://samsup.com/fotohres/0295603.jpg

Is available in most of the webshops that offer 45 parts.
available for example at one of our dealers

Places like Motorcyclestorehouse or W&W should also have them

Re: Foot brake pedal bushing

its not an original part indeed, its an "aftermarket" item becasue the pedals are known to wear out.

Basically any part for the WL is made by us or by our competition. We stock over 3600 different parts of which 90% is for WL. So there should be no " why is no-one making this?"

Samsup, I knew you were of Samwel. I actually spoke with Samwel on the telephone many years ago but our language made communication very difficult. How is he doing these days ? Pa

Re: Foot brake pedal bushing

He is now retired and enjoying life a lot! He is now planning a 3000 km 15 day round trip to italy and back on the WLA to do with the local motorclub, and he is into restoring some of the bigger twins now ( some UL he is doing now)

I have taken over the business mostly. He advises me on the things that I do not know yet ( which basically means I ask him questions to the point of driving him mad every single day)
Luckily we do not collide like some father/son cooperations so far. He is even helping me with my "projects" to "improve" the WL :roll: ( I have some ideas so to say)

Re: Foot brake pedal bushing

It wouldnt save anyone any cost.. I would have to hire ton of personell just to get around to doing all the orders and warehouse maintainance.. Then there would be added pressure of lots and lots of (false) warranty claims from all over the world. Parts would have to be needlessly shipped around.. It is best the way it is now, believe me, you are best off buying parts from either a dealer close to you ( if you have a problem you can just go there and talk/resolve), or with a big company that can do cheap shipping like MCS or W&W..

In any case, the brakepedal bushing exists and is readily available!
