Not sure if you mean longer in length from where attached to engine, or longer as it the stub of metal that you actually put your boot under. I had similar problem. I got some pipe ( 3/8 inch inside diameter I think) whatever size slides snugly over the rubber piece on the stub. I cut it to about 1.5 times the length of that stub and slipped it over. Then duct taped it in place. It helped quite a big. Of course I also turned the adjuster on the shaft with two nuts on it to put that stub up higher. I have a picture of it in another thread somewhere here on the forum, but can't find it right now. Will try later.
Forty years away from 2 wheel fun. Sure is great to be back smelling the roses!!!
