how do i do it? ha let me know asap i leave for my trip tomorrow
Unhook the master cylinder rod from the rear of the brake pedal by removing the cotter pin and washer and then removing the pin. I think the brake pedal itself, has a snapring that has to come off and then a big washer and then you just pull the brake pedal off the shaft. If the brake pedal isn't held on by a snapring, then it will just have a big cotter pin that holds it on, just take the cotter pin out and remove the washer and slide the brake pedal off.

OK, I didn't know that it was a 400EX. Did you remove the allen bolt and it still won't come off?

Don't forget to remove the return spring and if you have a brake light, the spring that operates the brake light switch.

I think you stated in another thread that the brake pedal wouldn't return to the normal position. I forgot to ask if it has the return spring on it, it could be missing.

It must be seized up in there. I don't know if you can get penetrating oil back in to it or not, but you can try. If you can get a pry bar in behind it, you might be able to pry it loose. The allen bolt is the only thing that holds it on.
