    I did move the brake reservoir forward with my mod, but would be interested in looking at yours for original location,

    I thought about moving the reservoir but didn't like the aesthetic look of the reservoir up front. I gotten used to the brake location, took some miles to get use to it, but now that I understand the brake lever location I think that I could just cut the toe pegs off and replace it with a longer one. THE Chief cut his off and it looks good. I did consider extend the entire brake lever length but for now I am going to do the less labor intense mod and go from there.

    Here are some pix of the brake lever side. I made a mistake in the metal thickness for the brake lever bracket and used a 1/4" thick plate instead of a 3/8" thick plate. This was for the 2.5" extension. On the 3 " extension, I used a 3/8" plate. I kinda like the look of the 1/4" plate thickness and using a metal spacer to make up for the remaining thickness. Having a gap between the brake bracket and foot pegs complimented the aesthetic look.

    Inseam is 32" and I stand at 5' 7". The 3" extension was way too forward that my legs got tired hanging on to the pegs. Well, more like my thighs got tired holding up my legs on long trips. If it were a floor board setup then the 3" setup would be perfect for that stretch out reach. I thought about one of those foot pegs that Kury makes that has a heel switch blade extension but again its all about the $$$.
