Exteneded Brake Arm

Well I got my kURAYAKYN extended brake arm (and lowered) yesterday , pretty easy deal , one note in particular make sure you have some needle nose pliers preferably bent and make sure you have the right tools for the job since all the nuts are different (sizes) , you basically have to take the floor boards off first and then the brackets , then what i did was unbolt the master cylinder , , then do the same for the brake arm , this is the part that's a pain in the ass ! theirs a roller pin that blocks the master cylinder plunger with a cotter pin , this thing is on the inside so it makes it difficult to get to, be patient , it can be done , trust me its a bitch! , once completed pull the plunger up and remove the brake arm !

Now to the extended brake , its gets better ! it wont fit because you have crash bars , so you need to loosen the brackets to the fairing ( just loosen) , then remove the 3 bolts holding the crash bars , now you can move the brake arm where it needs to be , this time when putting the roller pin back in, do the opposite , with the (cotter) pin closest to you (will make it a lot easier, just saying) then just put the bolts back on for the crash bars , tighten back same as the fairing bolts, tighten the master cylinders along with the brake arm, put the floor board brackets on along with the floor boards and BAM! YOUR DONE!

It takes about 45 minutes if you have a brain , if your like me (i didnt have the correct tools) it takes alot longer!like an hour and a half!

I've had my extended brake for some time now. I looked at what was required and assumed i had to take the headers off to get to that cotter pin. The work looked like more than i wanted to do.
thanks for this thread, i needed it LOL. Maybe this weekend i will attempt it.

Which version did you go with? The one for lowers or the one without? Would you mind posting a side view for me, I'm trying to see if this unit moves the pedal to an advantageous location for me.

as far as the cotter pin goes kurakyn gives you a new one , and in the directions they say unplug the fuse?? not sure what that is? but I didnt unplug any fuse , and like i read elsewhere i reversed the roller pin so it will be alot easier to get to the cotter pin next time around, im thinking its done the way it is to discourage people from doing it themselves and thus bringing it into the dealer for $400 bucks

I have installed two of the on bikes with hard lowers and radiators. Follow the instruction and it is no so bad.

That would be the big 50 main fuse.

I installed the EZ brake extended arm on mine last week and it was a breeze

Of course it is a new to me bike and I was installing new Harley extended floor pans, and the Fullsac DX headers at the same time so the floorboards and the header was off. Still a little tough to get the cotter pin out of the roll pin but much easier with the headers out of the way - did NOT have to do anything with the crash bar.

Just a guy who rides!

Easy Brake & Softbrake are much more comfortable than Kuryakyn. They are 1/2 longer & lower angle. You don't have to purposefully raise your foot to apply the brakes...
