Is it possible to move the Brake Lever Forward?
My wife recently got a custom seat, which pushes her forward quite a bit. We need to relocate the footbrake forward a couple inches if possible. Any Ideas??

I don't know of just the brake lever but for sure you can move all the controls forward
There are many versions if the same thing but here is a sample

I found a guy on eBay who made a custom kit extending the brake/foot peg assembly.
Of course the kit come with the gear-shift side as well.

Just to be clear, is this the one I need?

I realize it comes with both sides, but all we'll be using is the brake pedal side, the gearshift is now pefect.

would think you would want to do both sides as this moves your floorboard, so then you would be on the floorboards differently so not balanced. just something to consider.

Really, its just the brake pedal is too close now. I'd like to move the pedal, even if it's not the whole arm, just the pedal itself....

The floorboards are fine.

ok, so is this on the 1300 like the link is for? if so here is some good info that i found on the 1300 site. other ideas, etc, even saw one that said that you can adjust the angle of the pedal, that may be worth a shot too.

Keith HI!!!
That's the one I used on my 1300.
Really easy install and heavy duty.
Be sure to locktite everything.

The motor on the 1300 is twice as big as any bike I've owned before.

Just wondering but why not just adjust the brake pedal.. it has adjustments and can be moved forward / lowered about 1/2 - 3/4 of an inch and still engage properly. the rods just need to be adjusted. Don't forget to adjust the brake light switch too .
