Default Rear brake master cylinder - question

I want to bring my foot pegs rearwards by 2 inches or so. I found some brand new (front) footpeg mounts for my 03 Vegas (on the forum). The new mounts are from a Vegas low. Looks like the main hole centres etc are a match and a swap looks possible...

Question; the rear brake master cylinder sits around 3/4 inch further back from the original. Is there enough flexibility in the brake pipe to handle the move backwards (where the banjo bolt attaches to the master cylinder)?

Check along the frame rail, there are clips you can loosen to allow some movement either way on both pipes.

You would most likely need to remove your MC feed line and re-attach behind down tube. The banjo may have enough room to stay where it is....maybe adjust the angle a bit.
