Yamaha Rhino Pedal System Review

Yamaha Rhino Pedal System
Rhino Pedal System from Desert Molding

The Hardware:

The slider part of the pedal assembly is made from a twocomponent polyurethane. It’s physical properties include high shore”D” hardness, high abrasion resistance and high heat resistance. Thealuminum substrate is chemically treated prior to the molding process to createa bond between the aluminum and the polyurethane. Once molded the aluminumand polyurethane act as one to create a highly durable assembly.

The assembly also comes with all stainlessmounting hardware and hinge.

14. Check pedal assembly for proper fit and function prior tooperating vehicle.

15. Periodically check all mounting hardware.

16. Periodically check throttle cable for proper adjustment tomake sure you are getting full throttle when pedal is to the floor.  Thisadjustment has nothing to do with the new pedal, but even a stock Rhino willneed to be checked and adjusted.

Conclusions:

The gas pedal is much more comfortable and easy to use. Regardless of foot position, you are able to apply proper amount of pressure tothe pedal. We highly recommend this simple addition to your Yamaha Rhino.
