Got my wife a 2023 xt250 and need help finding a larger step pad for the rear brake. The larger the better. I can't find any specifically for some reason. Thanks

Not sure who makes one, but perhaps this is a good thing for her to learn to keep them feet pointed in!

If you can't find one, and she's really adamant about having a larger pad, any welding shop should be able to cut the oem pad off and weld on a new pad, so just find any one that you think she'll be happy with that's in the same material as the new '23 (assume they're still steel and not aluminum).

So there's no misunderstanding about what is really wanted, I suggest you take a piece of heavy card stock, cut it out to the shape and size of the brake pedal tip you want. Ask the weld shop to duplicate it in sheet steel and weld it on your existing brake pedal.

Hope you come up with a good solution.

She needs to learn to use the front brake, it does at least 75% of the work. The rear brake is for slow, slippery slopes and holding the bike stationary when stopped.
