Motorcycle Larry's foot peg lowering brackets: foot brake pedal extenders?

Hello, everyone,
I recently purchased Motorcycle Larry's foot peg lowering brackets, and they are great for a tall person like me.

However, the peg now extends out from the bike an extra inch or so, making it difficult to hit the brake pedal with my foot. (I have to curl my foot in to hit it.)

Has anyone else experienced this? Is there an extender for the pedal, or a different pedal I can purchase? Has anyone modified (welded) their pedal?

Thanks in advance.

We all experience it, you're right you have to turn in your foot a bit to hit the break and shift pedals. I got used to it after a couple rides and now it seems normal, haven't even thought about it being an issue since. For anyone unfamiliar with the layout, here's a shot of the MCL lowering links that push the foot pegs down and out about 1.5". Much easier on aging knees.

Yeah it takes a lil getting used to, but in no time you won't think about your pigeon toe anymore (unless you start attaching notes and flying straight home). I went by a welders shop to do an extension, he said to take it off and bring it back next weekend and he could add a piece to bring it out an inch or so. By the following weekend I had forgotten all about it and never did go back. Hadn't really thought about it till now. Pretty amazing what an inch or two extension can do for your hips ! Only drawback is you lose some clearance in the corners. FWIW, Joe

Thanks guys. Bending or welding does seem to be the way to go.

Here is my solution to the pigeon toe problem. I bolted an extension on the brake peddle. Counter sunk the screws.

Might want to try adjusting the pedal up or down a bit, it seems I got that right on the first try. For me it was the shifter that took some time getting right, but once I got the sweet spot no more trouble.

Hey, Chuck, that looks like the solution!
Any particulars, or just a piece of metal and some rubber topping?
