Foot brake adjustment.

On my 16 Duke 690, I have the foot brake adjusted to its lowest position.
I still find for me, its too high.
If i want to cover the brake, I have to keep my foot lifted to stop pushing the brake.
This gets very tiring for the shin muscles.
If i sit at the back of the seat, its not as bad, but up against the tank, where I prefer, its very difficult.

Are there any options out there, other than the rear set?
Cheers

I took off the screws attaching the flat of the brake pedal and reattached it underneath the lever with some nuts as spacers.

Have you tried moving your pegs to the higher position? Worked for me.

I did that to my 14 when I had it and it worked a treat.

You lose half the pedal under the arm.
Does this not affect you foot position?

I got used to it, and don't use the rear brake to retard as such, just to tighten up steering in the twisties.
