    Anyone have an extended brake pad that they really like? I would like one a bit wider so it sticks out from the tank a bit more. Also, are they an easy install (i am a tool challenged!)

    Not sure what your asking about? Back brake lever on right foot control?
    Sticking out from tank is confusing me to think you're not talking about actual brake pad on front caliper.

    I took the whole lever off and clamped the tube in a vise and bent the shaft outward at an angle using a pipe wrenck and some rags to protect the chrome. Then I clamped the shaft in the vise, and bent the pedal part back streight. I had to fit, and repeat, a few times to get the angles right. I have other things to spend my hard earned money on, so if I can mod it myself, I will always go that rout. It is nice to have my whole foot on the pedal now.

    That one will do the job too. I used that exact pad on a WG that had the taller K&N air filter installed to make it more comfortable as well as a peg extension too that came from the same vendor.
