    Adjusting the position of the rear brake pedal

    The rear brake pedal position is too low and it is hard to step on.
    I adjusted the rear brake pedal to the upper limit, but I do not like it.
    I want to raise more.
    Do you know a good way?

    I am NOT recommending that you do this   :156: Check with your dealer first! 気を付けて

    I have swapped the rubber peg inserts with the rear pillion inserts because they are thinner so you gain about 10mm.
    I find it perfect now for gears and braking 😀
    Give a try to see what you think.?

    Thank you Dave G. I think that it is a very innovative idea.
    I immediately tried it today. It was easy to adjust.

    Glad to assist. I read it on here somewhere that someone had done that for a bit more leg room for a long distance ride.
    I like your photo that changes to show the difference 😂😂 brilliant

    Have to say the rear brake on mine is next to useless. Asked them to look at this on first service - they bled the brake and it made no difference whatsoever.

    Cavalieri - I had the same and asked the dealer to bleed the rear brake on my first service. Like you, no real change noticed afterwards. Mine is better now having worn it in a bit. I've been applying a bit of rear brake for a few miles when riding on straights and this has definitely improved it. Worth trying, but obviously be careful.
    Sometimes you need a really crooked road to get your head straight

    OMG I got on mine on Sunday morning for a short ride out around town and to refuel.
    I went to apply the back brake near a junction and couldn't stop 😯
    Not sure what went wrong but after a couple of miles and pumping the rear brake it was better again.
    Maybe a bit of muc off degreaser has got on the disc following the last rear wheel clean

    My bike is on order but I had the same issue when I took a test ride.  For me there were a few things, first was exactly as described here, rear brake too low made it difficult to press hard, had to point my toes like a ballerina  :008:
    Even when pressing hard the effect was worryingly minimal.  I put it down to being a new bike with only a couple of hundred kms on the clock. Also the front brake was so good it made me feel like I didn't need the rear and I always feel like I use the rear too much, but that is another story.
    Lastly, the position of the clutch casing by my right foot was very annoying.  Maybe it's just different than my old bike and I need to get used to having my foot in a different position on the foot peg but my boots was constantly against the casing which was slowly warming my boot!
