    Default Rear brake issue - any help gratefully received

    I am having an issue reaching my rear brake pedal constantly having to move my foot forward to get to it. Anyone fitted an extension plate ? or any other suggestions please?

    I had a similar issue with a 1200 Multi. I found the pedal was too far down and too tucked in to get a proper push on it with my toes. My solution was to cut the end off the pedal and get it welded back on 1/2' higher up. Perhaps you could get your pedal shortened by getting someone to cut and weld it?

    I find I have to turn my foot in to press the pedal, I thought it may have been the particular way my foot was positioned when riding. I am away on my bike at the moment but I may try and get a second hand pedal when I get back and try and make something to suit from it. I mostly use the front but like to know the back brake is there immediately should l need it without contorting my foot.

    Never hardly use the back brake as its s...t.
    Last time I used the back break was 6 years ago to avoid a sheep, but that's a long famous SDC story

    Morning all,


    I've found on a few bikes that the rubber sleeved peg at the end of the pedal, simply isnt long enough for me.


    Usually, they screw into the lever in some fashion and Ive been able to re-use or make a longer peg.


    Some aftermarket kits have multiple options to position the pegs in differing places along the length of the bar.


    Good luck

    I had this problem with my Multi 620; I fitted a thick piece of rubber to the top of the pedal with small cable ties.
