    I guess we all do things our way , using 2 pipe wrench and a lot of rags
    I LOWERED the brake pedal instead of raising it ,
    and raised the shifter , now both feet are at same angle .

    Well finally did this mod today wow what a differance now I can rest my foot under the brake pedal while riding.

    I bent it just enough so as to allow my boot to easily fit under the pedal.

    Thanks again Lamonster for this great and simple mod.

    Hi all yes I have been thinking bout this for a while... (Big feet and big boots) I have adjusted the gear shift higher 1 notch on the spline, and bent the brake peddle arm back out of the way.... man its transform the foot position to what it always should have been....
    Thanks for all the info thanks Lamonster awesome.

    Thanks Lamonster for the great post. Now all that's left is to train my foot to use the peg!

    I just did this mod recently. I just used my foot with a boot on to bend the brake and shift pedal. Big improvement!

    Default Thank You from a new guy

    Hey all...
    Brand new owner and member...
    First thing I noticed was my dislike for the brake and shifter placement.
    First thing I read here was this thread on the mod... at home... five minutes.

    YOU ROCKED IT... SOOOOOO Happy...
    Knocked it out no problem... worried a bit about the weld but moved easy... shocked at how easy really.

    The ride is better... more comfortable and I can heel up higher to keep them from dragging on aggresive turns.

    Thank you all... I love the site and the info here.
    Love being in the group... Love the 109...

    I owned mine for 20 minutes and had to do something about the brake. I just pulled the pedal off the shaft and rotated it down a few splines. Does the trick for me. Figured I'd try that before bending it, more reversible.

    hate to bring up and old post but i guess i got lucky.?.

    after a week of owning my 9 in 06, just after i got the balls to show it to my father. my step mom backed into it. yes backed into only the brake lever. so i took it off put it in a vise and bent it to where it was comfortable. so now it has a nice "twist" to it.

    5'10" with size 8 (UK) 9 (US) feet, never had any problems, your right these bikes are designed for an average sized person, too many monsterous line backers!!! You'll be saying next that the seats aren't wide enough!!

    Someone may have done mine already but I have no problems with them. My size 15 feet are happy enough but then again, I just got off of a rocket so maybe anything seems comfortable lol

To get the allen screw out it is tight so you have to take a turn from the top then put the wrench in to the bottom and take a turn. Took me 1/2 hour to do everything.
    I did the same thing. I seem to remember having to cut an allen wrench in half on the grinder to fit it in there, but it was 2 Yrs. ago. With the lever up it's nice to be able to tuck your toes under the lever like under the shifter and relax your legs when you're cruising. I agree, it's unnecessary to heat and tweak.
