Engine Guards

Just bought the 750 and rode it for the first time yesterday. The engine guards leave very little room for my feet on the brake and gear pedal. Am I the only one with this problem or has anyone had it too and figured out what to do?

It's a solution but not the one I was looking for. Maybe there is something else that can be done first. Thanks.

Question Brake pedal adjustment?

I also don't feel comfortable with the stock brake pedal, it is
to far down. My pedal needs adjustment.

How did you adjust the pedal? or are you refering to adjustment of
the brake?

all you have to do to adjust the resting height of the brake pedal is loosen the bolt on the pedal collar that is on the pivot shaft, pull of the brake pedal and reposition it on the pivot shaft to the position you feel comfortable with and retighten the bolt.

Smile Repositioning brake pedal

Your response is a big help, going to head for the garage now and
adust the pedal angle.

Must have been the dealer that put mine at such a strange angle
and difficult to press.
