Our own Ken Meese is riding in the Iron Butt Rally. 11 days, 11,000 miles. The Iron Butt Rally started two days ago.

Ken is riding a BMW K1300GT. Unfortunately, Ken's brake pedal fell off today. He has the brake pedal, but needs the bolt, bushings, and washer.

The best thing would be if someone could meet Ken with the parts to loan. Whatever you can do, must happen today (Wednesday, 28 June 2017).

Right now, Ken is on his way to:

BMW Motorcycle of North Dallas, aka European Cycle Sports on 900 Avenue K #300, Plano, TX 75074.

Ken expects to arrive there between 5:40 and 6:00 PM today. They said that they would wait for him. Unfortunately, they don't have the parts. They will do what they can, but you can do better by loaning Ken the parts for a few days, until we can order new replacements for you.

The Iron Butt Rally check-in is tonight (28 June 2017) at 8:00 PM. The riders receive the rally packets tomorrow (29 June) at 4:00 AM (really!) and they leave soon after that. Here is the hotel:

Courtyard Dallas Allen at the John Q. Hammons Center, 210 East Stacy Road, Allen, TX 75002

Please help. If you have parts to loan Ken, send me a PM with your contact information (e.g., phone), and I will pass it along to Ken.

Write this down: Check fasteners on da break (sic) pedal.
It wasn't as easy to remove as I thought. I had to reach inside and behind to get at the bolt. My Torx T-50 socket would not fit, so I used one of those small "Star Pro" hinged Torx angle wrenches.

I expected to see Loctite on the end of the bolt, but there did not appear to be any. I plan to put a little blue Loctite on mine when I reinstall it.

I looked in the RepROM, but could not find a torque spec for the bolt. I am not sure how I would get my torque wrench in there anyway.

sometimes

Sometimes it just takes an educated guess.

*** between little money and working on the bike outside I have managed to go over quite a few fasteners. Again.

What seems a little odd, I haven't looked at the fiche, the main fasteners that bolt the engine into the frame look like "super" torx. -Sheesh-

Big ass Torx but have 'rounds on the points, not points.
