Is there a way to adjust the ride height of the rear brake pedal?

I was able to adjust the clutch pedal easily, but I'm not seeing the same kind of adjustment for the brake. Or perhaps I'm blind :D

Yes it is adjustable. Back off the jam nut, then loosen or tighten the threaded rod in/out as needed to raise/ lower, then re-tighten the jam nut. You may need to adjust your brake light switch as well, but I lowered mine a lot and didn't need to.

I have adjusted the threaded rod to it's limit to lower the height of the brake pedal, but it was not enough. It is still too high. So I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem and found a cure. Thanks !

Rick M...in your case

use a cutoff wheel to make a cut not quite to the top of lever

you can then easily bend the lever to desired pedal height

take lever off bike without disturbing the bend you made

weld the cut and paint

Thanks for this idea. I'm looking to lower the pedal at the toe about 3/4 of an inch and from seeing the difference that 3/16 inch of rod adjustment made, I don't think a half nut would make the difference I'm looking for. Thanks again!
