Adjust rear brake lever position?

The rear brake pedal on my 2008 900 Custom is too close to my foot, which creates an odd angle and limits my use of the rear brake. Is it possible to move/adjust it, as on many other bikes? Thanks.

Sure, just pull the bolt, slide the lever off, findthe spot for you and reinstall the bolt.

According to the gurus on the riding courses I have been on, the rear brake pedal should be adjusted so you can just slide your foot across to it, without lifting your foot.

Thanks for the post, Just adjusted mine after reading this. Now I can rest my right foot comfortably and even with my left without having to lift in order to break.
