Lowering the rear brake pedal
Hello all ... a question to determine the straight scoop regarding lowering the rear brake pedal.
I have a peg lowering kit and now have to flex my ankle a bit too much to put my toe on the pedal ... and it is too high to just rest my toe on the pedal without engaging the brake. The dealer told me that the rear brake pedal height is factor set, basically in a permanent position, with there perhaps being less than 1/4" adjustability play. Conversely, I have gotten the impression from other K1200LT riders that it can be substantively adjusted.
In looking at previous posts ... I found some indicating that a pedal modification is the solution, another pointing to an extended brake pedal made by Ilium as the answer (looks promising), and yet another indicating there is no need to do either ... that the rod at the master cylinder (followed by tail light activation adjustment) can be adjusted to raise/lower the pedal.
If is can be adjusted, I would rather do that. If it cannot, I'll just spring for the Ilium part. Anyone know the definitive scoop on this topic? Thanks in advance for the feedback.
