It seam my right foot fits great on my Goldstrike floorboards (2018 DCT Tour) but my left foot always has to rest on an angle due to the break pedal being to close to the floorboard.....does anyone makes a brake pedal extender, basically extending the pedal contact surface about an inch forward? I guess I could always cut and weld and extension in a worst case scenario but would rather just buy one.

Before we get there...

How the heck do you ride when sitting backwards on the bike? Your left foot on the brake pedal?

I feel ignorant here. Why would you not just slide your foot back a bit? That is what I do all the time when going around corners so I don't grind off the outside of my boot.

My foot is just uncomfortable in this position...my left foot sit perfectly on the floorboard and my right foot always has to sit on an angle due to the brake pedal always being in the way....I would like to move the break pedal contact point forward an inch so I can rest my right foot equal to my left foot.

Would it work for you if you lowered the pedal?

There is one company that makes a cover/oversized pad for the pedal - that MIGHT work. But I'd check the angle of the floor-boards, there should be clearance there unless you have them tilted back too much.

I think I will have my local welders just cut the pedal arm and weld in a 1 inch piece and polish it up. This should move the pedal forward an inch and I should have room for my boots like the left side.

The oem pedal was designed for foot pegs.

If you have a larger floorboard with a stock brake lever it will be difficult to use the brake properly

FWIW I have the same floor boards and my riding position results in the exact same issue. I thought about adjusting the pedal down so my toes hover over the pedal but am worried about dragging the brake or activating the brake light unintentionally.

I moved mine down and adjusted the brake light but it just did not feel right so I think I'm going to stop by my local metal fab/welding shop and have them cut the pedal and weld in a one inch longer piece and polish it so it comes back shiny. I can't see any other choice. I was hoping someone just made one I could bolt on.

If you were dragging your brake, cruise control would drop out, you would know pretty quickly.

I have the larger Goldstrike floorboards with the matching Goldstrike pedal cover & YES the pedal badly needs to be extended. You literally have to ride with your RIGHT foot at an angle
