i was riding my bike today and i hit the brakes some what hard but not enof to even skid the tire and the frickin brake pedal just falls straght down. the aluminam casing snaped right off. what sucks is now i have to find a way to get a bike to ride or a way to fix mine by wendsday because my road skills test is already set up and iv already paid for it.

Have you ever dropped your bike over on it's right side before ? I have seen this exact failure start to occur from a tip over which stressed that point and started a fracture to occur.

i would goto my locale stealership but i doute thay have one in stock plus i work at a bike parts store and iv been looking at a set of cnc machined rear sets. depending on how much the stelership charges for one i might get a aftermarket set.

Exact same thing happened to me... still haven't fixed it though. Just using the front brakes. I just consider it practice for my track days!
