Hey guys!

I'm not the most mechanically inclined, but not usually a total dunce either. In one of my finer dunce moments however I did lock up the front wheel on a rainy day and dropped my bobber. 🤡😭

The only damage was the rear brake peg snapped off at the threaded segment of the brake lever. I tried an ez out which snapped off in the center as well.

I need to remove the rear brake lever but can't figure out how. I've got the master and spring detached, foot peg off, and an Allen wrench that fits what I assume is like a bearing that the lever rotates around, but that won't even come close to turning.

Anyone have experience on the way forward? Thanks in advance!

Invest in a few relatively inexpensive bits of kit...

Breaker bars are fairly cheap and give you great power to gently persuade difficult bolts! One or two socket hex heads in the right sizes for the Indian, e.g. 10mm and 8mm. I too found these fittings hard to shift but they cannot resist this! I carry my breaker bar in the car because it can deal with any rusted wheel nuts....
