ok, i ride a sm610, have the rear brake adjusted down as far as possible but find it damn hard to use it without taking my whole foot off the peg, especially when wearing my MX boots. this in turn makes it mega hard to modulate the rear brake, and creating the difficulties. i find it hard to do even in shoes unless i'm sitting way back on the seat. its like i need the peg to be a bit higher but dont have any adjustablity that way. i'm 6'1" with 32 inseam. anyone have any suggestions?

Same here.. adjusted mine as low as the clevis allows, but still need to lift the foot off the peg, or bend my ankle at an uncomfortable angle. No way to cover the rear brake for emergencies (lots of deer around where I ride).

Problem seems to come from the dirt bike heritage. Pedal is positioned high so you can work the brake while standing, I assume?

Anyone got a answer for street riding?

Anoxion,
Same trouble here, I come from a street back ground (though I rode dirt as a kid) and am having a hard time getting used to the position. Especially when weighting the front of the bike!

However, I have noticed that even the pro's when racing tend to have their heal up off the peg when modulating the brake coming into a corner hard... even when backing it in.
Sorry that not much help, but I've kind of convinced myself I just have to adapt.

Any advice would be great...
