PostSubject: Foot on rear break - Ouch!   Sat Apr 30, 2016 3:51 pm

I just picked up a WR250X wings and I am having a tough time with my foot on the break pedal.
Am I alone or do others feel it too?
I always ride with my foot slightly placed on the rear breaks and it hurts my foot when I do this because my feet needs to be forcefully angled up in order not to hit the breaks.
Any thoughts on this?
How do you guys ride? or how do you overcome this?

Its pretty simple to adjust, I did mine as I had the same problem, mine is adjusted as low as it will go, I need lots of room for my size 14 boots.

MAN... thank's for raising this topic.  I have the same issue- stock lever position is really not useful- have to move my foot on and off each time causing longer reaction time and more front brake use than I'd like.

Ima get to 'justin that lever this weekend.
 good

^^ Same here.

I'm brand new to motorcycles and just figured that's how they worked. If the weather ever clears up here I'll roll mine out into the driveway and lower that lever. I really didn't like the reaction time delay and how it caused me to step harder than I wanted to once I got my foot in position. I got much better, but it's still slower than it should be.

I imagine the shift lever has some adjustability as well. I'll poke around for how I can raise that up a little so it's not so hard to get my toes underneath it.

STOP RAINING! I'm jonesing to ride and it's just been 40s and wet here for what feels like a month.

Yes shift lever is adjustable also, I raised mine so I could get my big foot under it to shift up.

You have already got the answer you were seeking but i had to clarify one thing.

When you ride and dont want to press the rear brake for example, on a highway or when accelerating, your foot should not be on the brake lever. Proper riding position is with the toes on both footpegs. When you need to brake then you move the foot over the brake. Same with shifting. Or elae, you may accidently brake or shift and it may cost your life...
