How Does a Motorcycle Work?

Rear Foot Brake Pedal

  • The Rear Foot Brake Pedal is located on the right side of the motorcycle just in front of the foot peg. It is connected to the rear master cylinder. Pressure on the brake pedal by the right foot controls the rear brakes of the motorcycle.
  • Do not use the rear brake by itself. The front brakes and rear brakes should be used together to stop the motorcycle in the shortest distance. Most of the braking power is in the front brake. There are exceptions that will be treated in the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) courses.
