it does work.  saves a few bucks on accessories.  spend it on fuel instead.

Cannot adjust at all. Buy a new lever- the ADV lever and it has a riser fitted. Still too low for me though.

Well in that case all that is left is to bend it till it fits I suppose!

I rode a bit of bad off road stuff this weekend and had to do a lot of standing. I find the rear brake pedal too far below the foot peg and cant reach it. I had a good look at the lever and how much adjustment there is on the brake cylinder adjuster. I may either bend the lever up or remove some of the metal at the stopper section thereby raising the pedal. Will let you guys know how it pans out.

NB. Don't adjust the adjuster on the LC unless you know what you are doing, as this could lead to brake binding and early brake pad wear. The height of the lever on the LC is not height adjustable in standard form!!!
