I believe there's mention in your owners manual. However, if you can't find it, go to here:

and read it all, especially the instructions as they'll tell how to adjust your brake lever.

Check your brake pads. This may indicate it is time to replace them.

Turning out the brake peg to your liking with a pipe wrench can also give you a better brake feel once you have the vertical clearance solved.

The brake pedal is adjustable, but the mechanism is a bit of a bugger to get at. You have to remove the footpeg hanging bracket to get at the locknut. Once adjusted, double-check that your brake light activates properly when you push on the brake pedal. When I adjusted my pedal downwards the brake light was on all the time - had to fiddle with the spring a little bit to get it to turn off.

I adjusted my pedal UP with the linkage. I did not take anything apart, just loosened the jam nuts on the adjuster rod. Once I had the pedal where I wanted it, I adjusted the brake light switch like in the owners manual. If you change the pedal adjustment, you have to change the light adjustment.
