Has anyone had any experience using the extended brake pedals offered for floor-board models?
I'm looking at Bubba's, E-Z brake, Tuff Brake, Kuryakyn....
The cheaper ones do not have a grease fitting. Is that necessary?

grease fitting....

I've heard some good things about extended brake pedals,especially the ones offered by Walters Workshop.

I would definitely cough up the extra bucks for the grease fitting.This is an area of the bike that is gonna pick up road dust & water,I think a grease fitting is a good idea.Why mess with brakes by trying to save a few bucks?

Just my 02 cents,Good Luck.

Don't know about Hustler but I'm Rustler (ROFL) and yes the ez-brake and ezshift are great. hit the site below and click harleys then FLHT and there are pics of it

Bubba's Brake has a much better one in my opinion. It comes with the grease fitting installed already. Plus he offers a very sharp looking set of floorboards and shifter that match up with the extended brake pedal. You will love Bubba's mo betta....

I have used the Bubba's extended pedal for about 3 years...

with no problems. It had a grease fitting installed. It is worth the cost (if that's possible given the cost of all Harley parts). I don't know why the factory didn't put 'em out like this to begin with...

I put the EZ-Brake on my FLHR. I have big feet, what a difference. I also picked up their extendes shift levers. They are well made.

After installing Bubba's Extended Brake Arm, did you gain additional clearance between the front exhaust headpipe and the brake pedal arm? Their web site says that they "rotated" the pedal forward (compared to the stock pedal).

Reason why I ask is that I have a ceramic coated exhaust pipe on order, and I believe there will be a clearance problem (with the brake pedal) upon installation. Option #1 is to cut a hunk of metal out of my stock pedal arm for clearance and apply paint to prevent rust. Option #2 is to replace the stock pedal with an extended style, if I can find one that will provide enough additional clearance, and that sells at a reasonable price:D

Anybody care to comment on the Bubba's unit or others? Thanks:D

I have the EZ and it was worth every penny. I like the way it puts the pad out and down a little from stock. For me it's more comfortable.
The after market guys must have been on to something, the MOCO extended the pedal on the new FLH's:rolleyes:

I have the EZ brake and EZ shift both. I really like the position of the brake pedal, especially when using highway pegs. The quality is excellent. I removed the rear shift lever since I never used it & put the spacer on. If you remove the shifter, I recommend that you get a spacer...EZ makes them as does Kury.

I have the Walter's Workshop one...

I got the brake lever, shift levers, heel rests, and the Kuryakyn kit that moves the floorboards out 3/4". Best accessories I bought for my bike. Much more room to move around on longer trips, and the brake pedal really does wind up in an easier to use place.

The Walter's brake lever has a grease fitting. I don't know if it's necessary or not, but if the stock lever has a grease fitting and Harley thinks you need a grease fitting there to keep the brake lever from binding, I'm not sure I'd want to save a few bucks and "see what happens".

To get more room on my floorboard, I simply cut down the brake pedal flat enough to fit the FX pedal cover on the original part...hope that makes sense! I don't care for the car-sized brake pedal, and the smaller pedal works just fine for me...More of an old school style, gives me a lot more room, pretty inexpensive, only $40 for a MoCo part. You can use a Sawzall to make the cut, in my case, I used a cutoff wheel...easy peasy!
