    Broken brake lever again.

    Hi guys,

    I know this has been covered many times but I need a bit of advice on the repair side.

    Dropped the bike yesterday and the rear brake lever is busted.   As far as I can tell the lever is in one piece and I think it has broken at the pivot.

    I'm off to invest in a torx bit set, can anyone advise what size torx piece I need and whether it is five or six sided.  silly question, I know, but I'm not with the bike at the moment so can't just look to check. 

    Ta

    kper

    PS.  R&G engine bars did their job again as no other damage visible.

    Hi Phil,

    Sorry to hear of the drop, but glad you're OK  :028:

    I've attached some Images below - the first shows an exploded drawing
    of the Brake Pedal assembly, and it's probably No.19 that's sheared off -
    which is the Brake Pedal Pivot Bolt.

    This is the same part ( Triumph T3331400 ) /  World of Triumph Part Number PFKL2304527
    as the well documented Gear Pedal Pivot Bolt that is prone to shearing.
    NOTE : This has now beeen superceded by Part Number T3331520.

    That part needs a 5.5mm 6mm Hex Key ( Allen Key ) to tighten it up.
    If it's sheared off you'll need to work out how to remove the broken stud.
    IIRC on that side of the bike the hole it screws into is open, ( i.e. not a "Blind" hole ),
    and a Member who tried drilling the broken stud out found that it screwed IN
    further and was then removable from the other end of the hole.

    To access it you will need to remove the right hand Control Plate.

    This is secured by 3 "tight" bolts that have the Torx heads.
    I thinyou need a No.40 Torx Bit, but they ARE the 6 point version,
    so if you are getting a set make sure it includes a No.40.

    NOTE : The Service Manual calls for these bolts to be replaced after removal and not reused.
    ( World of Triumph Part No. PFKL2012085 - described as BOLT, DISC, M8X1.25X30 ).

    Cheers,

    From memory, I THINK it may be a 6mm Allen key you need rather than 5.5mm. Might be best to have both on hand when you do the job.

    Phil - 1675 is right - I just double checked and it IS a 6mm Hex Key for the Pivot Bolt  :169:

    1675 - Cheers  :821:  Good job someone is paying attention  :008:

    Just FYI since I don't think it was mentioned: Torx and hex are different. Torx will work in a hex head bolt, but not well, and you can easily round off the hex hole. You want hex. I have both and learned from experience that I'd like to see others avoid. :-)
