Will an OEM Harley kicker pedal cleat fit on a Triumph Bonneville kicker arm? Or is the Triumph kicker pedal totally different? Thanks

I had one on a Triumph , I had to shave alittle off the peg that goes in the kicker arm maybe 1/16 of a inch to thick but yes with little modification it will fit ...

as for direct application, I don't believe so, but with alittle efford and fabrication, i'm sure its very possible, i guess it rounds down to how badly you want to make it work.....

any of these will work with a little grinder work on the stub there for the bolt...http://www.raskcycle.com/cgi-bin/cart.pl?db=british.dat&category=Kicker+Pedals

No close up, but a bicycle kicker on my '66. I just took a grinder to the cleat and shaved a little down.
Works fine, but the nut that holds the pedal on the shaft is constantly tightening up, not allowing the pedal to rotate. I have to pull the front plate, loosen further out of the shaft, but eventually it winds itself back tight. Any suggestions on a fix for that?

i used a Chicago Motorcycle Supply pedal with only a slight shave down on the bench grinder.

it was a lot easier to fit than i thought.

Like others posted, a slight shave off of the flat portion of the kicker pedal axle, where it bolts to the kicker arm is all that is needed. If you want to retain the check ball to stop the pedal from flopping about, a small shallow hole will need to be drilled on the radiused part, on the end of the kicker axle.

The whole modification should take about 15 minutes start to finish.

Do you have enough threads to put a jam nut on it?

No, there isn't much room behind the cap. I do have a nylon locknut, but that isn't working.
