Rhino Pedal System

Yamaha Rhino Pedal System
Rhino Pedal System from Desert Molding

The Hardware:

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

The assembly also comes with all stainless mounting hardware and hinge.

Gas Pedal Installation:

1. Disconnect stock gas pedal return spring.

12. Reinstall stock throttle cable.

13. Reinstall stock gas pedal return spring.

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

15. Periodically check all mounting hardware.

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


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