interchangeable parts

does anyone know if the 599 and 919 rear brake pedal are interchangeable?
Or does anyone have a 919 rear brake pedal they would part with?

Thanks...

A quick look at some 599 pictures suggests to me that there is a decent chance it is, so I suggest you go to a major online parts supplier like Ayers has has part numbers showing in the displays, and cross reference the P/Ns to easily find out if they are the same or not.

Why do you need a new one ?
Badly pretzled ones are actually quite easy to reshape back to original form.
You'd be amazed what a vice, a couple of crescent wreches, and an engineers hammer (or hefty ball peen but not as good) can do. A couple of crescent wrenches re difficult angles, wrench A on the part, wrench B on the jaw of wrench A.

Some alloys tolerate reshaping better than others. The Chinese pocket bike I had, the alloy was such shit that after 1 bend it was all but over. 3 bends into it, and you'd be holding half of the part in your hand. I'm sure the brake lever on the 9er is made of better material, but I am sure you'll be weaking it with each bend. Just my $0.005

if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided

The 919 rear brake pedal is chrome plated steel. No light weight alloy here boys!

Drill some holes in it and make your bike faster ...............

919 brake lever is solid section chromed mild steel.
Very easy to rework.
While I was straightening mine, I also tucked it in a bit.
No issue with 919 rear brake lever material re even major straightening.

I've had no problem straightening them either. Done the same one twice now, thanks to the ex.
