Is there an aftermarket shift relo kit?

I put a Suburban Machinery Peg Relo Kit on my GT on the weekend. It goes a long way towards making the bike a much more comfortable place to inhabit. The problem is that with the pegs that much lower, I have to completely take my feet off the pegs in order to operate the rear brake and to shift. Is there any aftermarket kits that anyone is aware of that will lower the shift and brake pegs? I would appreciate knowing if there is?

Just installed the peg lowering kit onto my GT and there is PLENTY of adjustment in the stock shift linkage to lower it to the right level. Haven't done anything with the brake yet.

I never adjusted the shifter or brake levers when I installed the peg extenders. Didn't adjust them when I took them off, either.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

I have feet like a duck. They are size 14 -15. It takes a little more space for me to shift and brake than a normal guy like you Ken.

Me, normal?

But yeah, I can see how 14-15's might take some special consideration.

It doesn't look like there's much adjustment in the brake pedal, though you could look at the extension rod in the pic below:



Just make sure to also adjust the brake pedal stop bolt so that the pedal sits where you want it, doesn't bind, and retains its full range of travel.

Otherwise, Wunderlich makes a brake pedal enlarger foot that may help you out some.

And as Jack mentioned, you can move the shift lever some by adjusting the vertical rod shown in the pic below:



Hope that helps.
