You can bend your brake peddle back. Remove it and use a propane torch to get it red hot then put it in a vice and bend it back. I've done this more than once to mine with good results.Got my license in April then went and bought a versys because the KLR was too tall. Already bent my rear brake peddle from dropping it in the driveway. Looking to buy some sidebags if anyone could point me in the right direction.
