The lever or the pedal? If the lever, bend it. If the pedal, grind off the inner teeth. Quit scratching your head and go fix the thing.

The teeth on the factory brake pedal are steel, sharp, and far, far too close to the aluminum clutch cover. If you bang the brake arm on a rock, it will flex inward and the inner teeth of the pedal will crack the cover. Think about pounds per square inch of force concentrated at the tip of a steel penetrator on an aluminum target. I can shove my car key through the side of a beer can, and I bet you can too. Regardless of any percieved problem, those inner teeth need to be ground off or the pedal replaced with an aluminum alloy unit.

Here's another one. The rear fender of my brand new FE570S is angled so that when the suspension is at full compression the lower lip of the fender will get snagged by the lugs of the rear tire. I mounted my license plate horizontally, cut off the excess inch of fender, rounded the surfaces that face forward toward the tire, and it still happened on a very moderate ride. Design flaw. So just like in the Dirt Rider test of the bike, I heated the fender up with a heat gun and recontoured it upward so that it'll stay clear of the tire. You might say, "Take a heat gun to my baby?" but then the rear tire might rip your whole subframe off the bike.

Like the lady said, "If the world doesn't suit you, friend, make adjustments." These machines aren't perfect.

Re: Husaberg Billet Clutch Cover

This is what happened to mine the holes are from the heads of the brake pedal bolts [attachment=1:3lon6v1d]Photo1012.jpg[/attachment:3lon6v1d]

This is how i fixed it, 3mm ali plate welded to brake pedal [attachment=0:3lon6v1d]Photo1011.jpg[/attachment:3lon6v1d]
