Rear Brake Foot Controls

Howdy everyone,
Been a longtime member but haven't been active now for a long time. Last year on 14 May 2019 I had my lower right leg amputated due to a gun shot wound I received while I was deployed to Iraq in 2004. So in Washington after having a medical procedure you have to retake the ride test to show you can safely operate your bike. So I am taking the basic motorcycle safety class on 9-12 May 2019.
This past weekend I rode my RG for the first time since my amputation and the one thing I noticed is that while I can hit the rear brake pedal but it would be easier for me if it stuck out 1-2" more. Does anyone know of a rear brake pedal that sticks out more or moves it over?





I know I can get a used one and cut and reweld it but just wondering if there is anything already made aftermarket.

First, thank you for your sacrifice and service. Kuryakyn makes an extended brake pedal and a brake lever that puts your foot in a more natural positions. I have both on my bike.

I'd looked at that one from Kuryakyn but I am not sure if it will work for what I am trying to do. Since I don't have an ankle anymore my foot it going to be at angle and getting my foot flat on the floorboards is interesting. I'm in the middle of a study with the VA right now so I wasn't using my normal socket. The one I am using right now has the pin release on that inside which was hitting the air cleaner. This isn't good because you and end up accidently releasing your prosthetic. My normal socket my prosthesis made for me has the pin release on the front so it doesn't do this.

I'll take another look at the brake lever. Do you of you by chance have a picture of it sitting next to the stock lever to give me a better idea what it does?

Thanks I spent 10 day shy of 28 years in service to my country. I'm just glad to be able to finally be able to ride again.

This looks interesting.

The rear brake lever I need is this one,

And then shift the floorboards out 1" also.

I don't like chrome but it is all they offer for my year.

Thinking outside the box, maybe a metal fab shop can make you something. You can bolt it between the pad & the lever. Since ur right highway peg is lower, maybe they can fab one (1) with a inch drop then have it go out for you.
Wish you the best of luck with this project. Lets us know how you make out.

I had loaned my bike to a buddy while I couldn't ride it. He had adjusted the highway pegs and I don't think he realized that it was leaning down like it was. He made a comment when I was pulling out of his garage. It will be nice to have it home again so I can do some work to it. The floorboard shift kit seems like a good idea and I might just try the extended pad first before I get the lever also.

Sorry to hear of the loss of Your Lower Right Leg Wildman.
Thanks for Your Sacrifice as well as Your Service.
The Kuryakyn Extended Rear Brake Pedal as well as any Floor Board Extenders are very comfortable for sure.
It might be worthwhile, as ALMOONEY suggested, to get together with a local fabricator and see if something can be produced or modified to assist You.
Best of Luck Bro and keep Us All informed on how you make out.
