I would certainly be interested if it didn't have that darned right brake pedal!
Of course I'd be interested in the MP3 500 also, if it didn't have that pedal.

I really don't like the brake pedal.

But it wasn't a deal-killer, and I find I can ignore it pretty well.

If Gernany hadn't made it a damned law that you have to have it in order to drive with a regular Drivers Licence, I would have removed that damned Brakepedal a long time ago!!!!

It comes off with one bolt from the bottom.

Can you be more specific? I'm definitely interested.

Thanks!

Looking at the actual footpedal it's just bolted on but how much of it still sticks above the foot board i don't know. If had one i would remove the complete brake master cylinder but i'm in the UK and it's not required as such ( it's a across the English Channel thing) . Not sure about USA . If the pedal still stuck above the foot board and had to be there for a yearly inspection like our MOT then i would be modifing the pedal arm so it dident stick above the footboard and just refit it for the MOT.Simples.

I don't understand why they don't matter in the US.
