I bought a used HD-1. I've been frustrated Because the kick pedal on my Roland HD-1 only functions intermittently. I listed the HD-1, but I was not satisfied with the reliability of the pedal. First remove the four phillips screws and one hex screw:

Step 1:

Lubricate the areas marked in red with little Vaseline or a drop of oil. Clean the trigger with contact spray cleaner. To give more power to the pedal can add a rubber band on the spring, marked in yellow.  Enjoy yourself !

    did it work also after months? I heard somehwere that the vaseline solution is only a short term solution. I saw a video of someone cutting small ridges in the rubber which he claimed to be a more permanent solution
