    Default F3 Brake pedal ?? Size??

    Does an F3/F3S need or benefit from a Full Size Brake Pedal ??
    I know the full size pedal is a benefit on my STS.

    I got a larger brake pedal from Spyderpops. Now I no longer worry about finding it or having my foot slip off.

    Yes, it needs a wider pedal and here's how to get one for free. Remove the two nuts from the underside and lift the pedal off. Move it outward and slip the left stud into the right hole and secure it with one of the nuts. Done.
    If the vacant hole bothers you, as it did me, insert a bolt and secure it with the other nut. Now it looks like the factory did it and you have a wider pedal and $$ in your pocket.
    I did this almost two years ago and it's still working great. No, it never loosened.

    Easy inexpensive way to lower it. Drill the front yoke. Can be fine tuned with washers between the pad and lever.

    I tried that hole thing and the pedal still wasn't the right height for me. So I tuned the rod into an adjustable one....

    I have the Spyderpops version on the 2019 and will have one put on the 2020 when we get it serviced.

    I always have liked a wider brake pedal.

    Looks good. What is the pipe size? I guess I could measure, but I'm lazy and it's difficult to kneel down with my motocross knees.

    Are you asking me? No pipe involved, I just moved the pedal outboard one notch.

    I used a 6" long 3/8" galvanized nipple. I ran a 1/2" drill bit through it and had to remove a bit diameter on the rod ends until I had a close slip fit. The tension pins are 1/8 X 3/4".
