Harley stock rear brake pedals are too far back and sit up too high. It's hard to cover your brake with your foot when approaching intersections. It is just an unnatural position and a safety issue as your toes actually sit underneath the rear brake pedal while resting your feet on the floorboards. (see install video below)
I don't know why Harley puts stock rear brake pedals in this ridiculous position. I am 5′-8″ tall and average size and the pedal is still awkward. I can only imagine how awkward it feels for taller riders. I need to be able to comfortably cover my rear brake and also apply it quickly if necessary.
This is why we now put Kuryakyn Extended Brake Pedals on all our Harley touring models and carry them right in the Law Abiding Biker Store. It puts the pedal forward about 2 1/4″ and lowers it. I can tell you this is significant and puts it in a much more ergonomic position. It makes it safer to easily cover your brake and apply your rear brake quickly without your toes being underneath it.
We also have a free Kuryakyn extended brake pedal install video!
