Default Rear Brake Control (Foot Pad vs. OEM)

Anyone modify OEM configuration on the rear brake control to mount a H-D or Kuryakyn foot pad. I get tried of twisting my foot to apply the rear brake.
Thanks

You know the rear brake is only to slow you down.
It does not stop you BUT it will throw you to the ground. OR something really bad.
I was at a after market store going threw a drag specialties catalog and under the shifter section i saw a round shifter peg that looked to be about 4 inches long. Maybe it would help you.

I don't ride your bike and not familiar with what you have as a shift / brake pegs, but I'm with you on finding some options to the "nub" some of us have as shift and brake pegs. Seems to be a void in the Victory aftermarket for this type of product.
I have seen stud adaptors that would allow you to convert the nub to an HD peg, some of which are more of a small pad rather than a peg.
I'd like to see someone step up and come out with both a variety of peg options and a larger brake pad-type alternative.

It is rather simple to add almost any HD or kuryakyn HD type pegs.
The toe shifter you only need to replace the allen bolt with a metric. Depending on the brake peg you use will determine the bracket needed to attach the brake peg.



I used the small brake pedal so it would not interfere with my cruise pegs.

I ordered one of these a couple of days ago. I rode a friend's bike with this mod and found it to be much better than that little peg.

My brake pad upgrade was about a four minute install including getting the peg out and gathering a couple of tools. I am happy.

Use the link in the previous post. I bought it from "I don't care" on the (edited per forum rules) forum. It was the pedal and bracket. Go there and ask if he has any left.
