Yamaha HH65 pedal triggering problem
 
1 Attachment(s)
My HH65 has been needing extra pedal pressure to trigger the closed cymbals sound. I found the pedal pushes down on a curved rubber block with 4 small ridges underneath it which progressively activate separate switch-pads. I think the problem was due to the rubber block not pressing enough on the last pad (furthest from the block's fixed end). So I tried raising it's mounting bracket slightly by moving 2 flat washers from the screw heads to underneath the bracket and to my surprise the cymbal triggering improved with less foot pressure required. I wouldn't raise it much more just in case it affects any of the other 3 pads operating properly. The pic shows how I've also raised the pedal angle a bit by moving the toe bracket to the pedal underside.
This might help anyone else with a sore left ankle.

sorry to open a old thread but I am having this problem.
what two screws did you add washers to? I am not understanding the fix.

Here's another view of the 2 screws securing the mounting bracket for the curved rubber block. The flat washers are fitted between the pedal base plate and the bracket to raise the rubber block slightly.

This idea could be worth trying also:

Good luck with it!
