I've just put the OEM footpegs back in place, before I had Kuryakin floorboards.
I'll see tomorrow if I need to raise the brake pedal ... I'm 5.5" with feet 42 (European) 8.5 American.

Brake pedal raised a little, so that my foot can stay under it while resting on the peg.

Much better now :bigthumbsup:

Much better not only because the right foot has more room, but because the brake pedal is higher now and therefore I can apply more power to it. I can even lock the rear wheel now while riding :D

Fix the rear brake lever

Just did mine Saturday 12 Jan, I used a 3/4 inch pipe and bent it out and up... I thought it was only me, that the previous owner had droped the bike or bent it some how... Great to know I wasn't imagining that problem.:doorag:

Adjusting the rear brake pedal back

I heard that there are tines to allow for a rear brake pedal adjustment to bring the pedal closer to you....anyone know how to do that (pictures would be awesome if you can tell me how and what I need to do it)

Its a spline shaft. Loosen the set screw, pull of the shaft, rotate it and replace back on shaft.

What makes it difficult is the foot bracket.

Real fan of the Rivco brake pedal. Puts it where it should be.

Used 3 rags doubled over on mine and the teeth still marked mine slightly. Good mod, but I'd use small wood blocks instead of rags to prevent marking. Maybe a paint stirring stick cut into 2 small pieces would do the trick. No probs with the adjustable wrench on the peg though. And, excellent mod for larger feet! :bigthumbsup:
Just use a old style smooth jawed pipe wrench, the jaws are right angle like the pipe wrench shown, but no teeth on them. But even with that I would use some sort of buffer as the action of bending the arm up puts the corners of the wrench jaws on the lever arm. And something hard enough to keep the jaw corners from digging into the brake arm.

I've done a few of these now and the first one I did was in the vice. The last two were done on the bike and it makes all the difference in the world. :doorag:
I know you can just move the pedal but that didn't do enough for me, I needed mine a little higher too. :doorag:

Before


After



As you can see from this picture before it made your foot hang way out to keep it off of the brake pedal. :verymad:



I used a pipe wrench and a big adjustable wrench and had it bent into shape in less than 5 min. and I didn't have to take anything off. :bigthumbsup: I did the same thing on the shifter too for Big Joe and his size 16's :eek:

This mod is a must if you feel like your feet are slipping off of the pegs and you have a hard time with your brake peddle. :super:

All it is, is bending the pedal to where you like it. You can use a couple large crescent wrenches, pipe wrenches, etc. You hold the lever lower down with one wrench then use the other wrench up higher to bend the lever. Use leather or something like it around the lever so you don't scratch it.
