Default Brake pedal adjustment on 09 Custom

Hi folks. I’m wondering if there is any brake pedal height adjustment to be had on the Sportster custom (forward controls). I’ve had the bike about 6 weeks and after doing a service and adding stuff I wanted, I’m finally riding it. I’m 6’3” kinda long legged and really have to pick my foot up to use the pedal. The rod from pedal to master cylinder looks non adjustable but can the arm on the cylinder shaft be repositioned or does it have a master spline? Anyone run across this? And if not are there adjustable rods available? Thanks!

There could be some room at the clevis on the master but I don't recommend it.

Thanks so much for the responses. That adjustable rod looks to be the answer!

Yes that was a great suggestion. I had some time today to look around on the DK site and they have some neat stuff. Apparently that adjustable rod is fairly new in their inventory and exactly what I was looking for! Again, thanks Tomcatt

Yes, it is new. We've been talking about making them for years, but earlier this year knuckled under and got it done.
