    Replaced my bent up oem pedal with a new unit from Eurotrash. My oem bent pedal, was too fragile to repair due to past repairs, and was causing me to lift my foot off the peg to operate. So I saw this pedal on eBay, but the eBay listing would not allow me to order, so I went to Eurotrash website and quickly ordered.

    Now the new pedal is level and should operate nicely.

    $137

    I had to ream the plastic brake switch holes slightly to allow me to lower the switch, about 1/16".

    I had to remove some rubber from the underside of the foot peg rubber to allow best fit.

    Listed on the Eurotrash site as 137.00. The superscript doesnt come through in the above post - so looks rather more expensive!

    What is that return spring you have on your pedal? Is that the Commando one?

    Not sure about coiled at pivot brake pedal spring, it appears to me to made for this P11 application, similar to Commando, but not same, different wire bend at chassis end.
    A double coil spring, or almost, if I remember.

    Thanks, big difference. Amazing what a decimal point can do. I believe P11's came new with no front foot peg rubbers, mine did. Adding them was always rider preference.

    The safety return spring on the Commando is there in case the rear brake cable should break. On the P11's it's a metal rod, not as likely to fail. Still it's added security.

    The Commando spring was never a factory installation, but a good idea with the cable brake (I have them on all of mine). I just noticed the one on P400's bike and have never seen one before on a P11 or in a parts book. I thought it might be to compensate for a weak rear brake return spring or to correct a brake light switch problem.

    Rear brake pedal spring at the pivot.
    This coil spring has been on mine since before my purchase of 2014.
    Seems hard to believe a special stud would have been added to the frame to allow this spring to function.

    I think this spring was only found on the special "Steve McQueen" edition of P11.

    Interesting, that stud is not on any of my P11 or Ranger frames.

    The spring is a very good idea and I would like to find or make one.

    I think it would help eliminate dragging shoes due to a combination of worn or dirty brake cam and the long pedal. My '67 drags a little and no amount of cleaning/greasing or nut tension eliminates the drag until I lift the pedal manually. I have tried Permatex green brake lubricant, White Moly and oil on the cam.

    New rear brake pedal and old rear brake pedal is easily activated by my boot heel while riding because the brake switch activation is so slight.
    Not that it poses too much of a problem, just a bit concerning for following riders.

    I might try to bend the new rear brake pedal back where you see the sidestand tip .
