Default Double Pedal Drive Shafts

Aftermarket. Does anyone know who makes them? I tried Google, and using the search function here, but not much comes up.

I'm trying to I.D. a drive shaft I've got. If I don't have luck with whatever you guys know of, I'll post a pic later.

Axis makes a really nice universal drive shaft.

That's a nice, heavy duty looking one, but not the one I have, although it looks a little similar. Maybe they had an earlier version. I guess I'll have to post a pic.

Here's a pic of the driveshaft I've got. Maybe someone knows what it is. The holes on the ends are a bit too big for the shafts. I'm thinking of maybe finding a small bushing or sleeve that'll do the trick.:

Yep, thats the Axis shaft, its designed to fit pretty much any pedal out threre. If you want, I will gladly trade you the matching Yamaha shaft for your pedal for the Axis. :)

Woo-hoo - LOL. I got a pretty good deal then. It locks on and seems to work fine, but it seems a bit funky because the hole in the Axis shaft is bigger than the diameter of the shafts on the pedals.

I haven't really given them a good workout yet - just finished working on cleaning them up.

This is an AXIS UDS- first generation, the square block. Hold on to it. Its a little lighter than the new(er) round ones and smaller. Don't send it back to AXIS for rebuild either, they'll keep it and send you a round one, unless you clearly specify you want the square block back.

The cool thing about these square blocks (besides being lighter) is they'll fit in a PVC (1.5") tube for cartage, the round ones won't.

There may be slop w/screw open, but crank it down, the screw should bite and hold on the YAMAHA shaft.

If your AXIS UDS ever gets loose, let me know, I can help with the tightening procedure. Its not as easy as heating and cranking, you have to know which screws to crank and how much. I've learned through trial/error, trust me, you can screw it up if you don't know what you're doing.

Many thanks for the information. I learn something new here every day.


EDIT: Put these guys through the paces today, and they work like a champ.
I needn't have worried about the driveshaft - it clamped down and held tight through some pounding.

Someone had tried to attach the shaft wrong. You could see that the driveshaft was tightened down severely in the wrong spot (not on the flat), and left an indentation in the metal of the left side pedal shaft. Not sure how they could have used it like that.
Must have been frustrating for someone.
Anyways - all is well with them now.
