foot pegs/brake problem

Post by doctorofpain »

I have a 2006 1800 and really do not like the stock foot pegs so I went with some Kury floorboards but now I can't get the brake pedal adjusted, it is either to high or to low and now when coming to a stop it feels like I having been riding for a week and not 40 years! Is there anything out there that puts everything at a good angle so I can get back to making smooth stops. Thanks

You could try adding the Kury brake pad cover. It should give you the added lift to the pedal.

Or the replacement Kury brake arm. I added just the cover and it gave me an extra 1/2 inch, whereas, adjusting the pedal was an inch at a time. I took the floorboards back off though, as my legs are too short for them.

Heres what I have on mine. Unfortunately I have a size 15 foot so the stock pedal isnt what I need it to be. This slides over and has a couple of set screws to lock it in place plus it brings the height up about a 1/2 in making it perfect for me. ... 947/219696

No9t sure how you adjusted brake pedal so excuse my idea if you've tried it. The brake pedal is on a spline shaft, so loosening the screw and pulling it off will allow one to re-align it differently on the shaft so you can adjust it up or down as needed.
