    Rear brake pedal ?

    Hi as a potential new owner of a 950 I was wondering if anyone has the same view as myself concerning the very small rear brake leaver ,that imho is far to small and interferes with  its use . So has anyone modded or swapped out the pedal with another model to improve this . Also has anyone any recommendations for some larger foot pegs for the  rider and passenger .
    Cheers

    Ferret, the size of the brake pedal and pegs never been any sort of issue for me . The only comment I would have , and it has been reported by several on this Forum,  is that it is a bit of a reach to get down to it with your toe and it could do with being a bit higher. Some have made some alterations to adjust this  - for me I live with it no probs as most of my braking is front brake and I tend to use the rear mostly for slow speed control

    I thought the brake pedal looked ridiculously, race bike small but it has honestly never been a problem even stood on the pegs. In fact the only problem standing up is my heel catches the exhaust shield but that's another topic.
    Anything more than two wheels is unnecessary.

    I suppose that I never really noticed because the first thing that I did was to remover the rubbers from the front pegs as someone had said that they could pop out and be lost.
