The cleated brake pedal from STR was a nice addition, providing more grip than stock. The occasional creek crossing or stepping through mud was where the extra brake pedal’s traction shined, when stock would feel like a slippery moving target. And the clutch cover shield, also by STR, is a must have on any motorcycle, especially on the rocky trails in Colorado. The brake pedal is so close to the clutch cover and is often punched into the case, thus leaking oil and ending your ride. A trick orange piece of armor like this one greatly reduces unwanted failure.
