I did'nt like the way the foot brake contacts the exhaust pipe and also that it was higher than the footrest and obstructed my foot. I've now fitted a simple stop behind the brake- spindle-arm on the left side of the bike. It's just a short piece of copper water pipe bolted onto the redundant boss on the frame (see photos). My foot can now sit comfortably on the footrest.
I can't understand exactly what this mod does. My pedal also was too high & in my way & didn't feel right when I first got my '08 Classic. I used the bike's own up/down pedal adjuster mechanism to move the pedal down to that perfect position.
