Is the stainless steel wear plate on the Shimano PD-7900 pedal replaceable? On various websites (eg. here.) it says it is replaceable, but in Shimano's tech doc for the pedal it says "For PD-7900, the body cover cannot be replaced".

I assume by "body cover" they mean the wear plate.

So which is it?

that is odd. also in the small parts diagram, there is no wear plate listed separately, but there is in the 7810 one.

further, the new 9000 pedal is in the same boat as 7900.

Hate to pull one out of the crypt, but is this not replaceable? Should i keep looking for a new platr or justvget new pedals?

I notice some rocking side to side after installing new cleats. Now, it could be from my bont shoes being molded several times and not being flush with the cleat. My pedals do have nearly 30k km and the plate looks flush with the carbon...

Edit: forgot to mention PD9000

With no separate part number indicated for the steel plate on the EV diagram of the PD-9000, I would conclude that you'll have to get whole new pedals. If you can find some plates from the 7810 pedals you could always try them before doing so.

Any picture ?

At worst ,you can make a custom plate and glue it with epoxy. Throwing away dura ace pedals would be a sin.

Prophetic timing.

I have had PD7900 pedals since they came out in 2010.

I have put in roughly 80,000km on them, a lot of which was hard riding, in rain, ice cold, burning heat, etc. I have crashed them quite a few times at speed onto concrete, and never serviced them once.

They have been totally perfect, until this morning, when I noticed a crack across the axle housing of the right pedal (clip-in/out side). This is a real end of era breakage for me. These things have been with me through thick and thin, and have never ever given me a single issue. Phenomenal engineering.

They are candidates for the best fit and forget component on a bike

I absolutely agree! They are perfect.

Also, the bearing system is so far ahead of every other pedal manufacturer out there, it makes the others look like a joke.

I would go even further, and say they are the best single instance of a bicycle component ever made, so far.
