Good evening folks,

I know that there are already threads on this, but I have a question along with my praise and I hope that some of you will give me some of your wisdom.

First the praise: I received Richland Rick's peg lowering kit in the mail today and installed them immediately. I took it for a short ride afterward and WOW, what a difference they make. My V-Strom felt like a new bike.

I'm 6'7" tall; I was fairly comfortable with the stock setup, but that little peg adjustment makes a huge difference in the feel and comfort of the bike.

I've also got Rick's fork brace installed. The quality of his kits are exceptional, and shipping/deliver is very quick. You're doing it right Rick, please don't change your operating model.

My question: Following the install, I've got the shift lever and brake lever where they're comfortable. They actually feel like the stock setup. The issue is that the brake lever somehow doesn't feel "right." It works fine, actuates the brake light, but feels like it might need a tiny bit of adjustment.

I'm moderately competent with mechanics, but I'm new to this whole motorcycle maintenance thing. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to tweak the adjustment of the brake lever?

I know that I haven't really given a good description of my perceived problem. I really don't know how to describe it other than it just has a different feel to it, and I want to make sure I didn't miss something. The connections are tight, the brake actuates fine, as does the light. Maybe it's all in my head, but if any of you folks had to make any tweaks to your lever after installation I'd be glad to hear about it.

Ride safe,
