Shiro, I had same problem with my big feet. I found that the shifter was slightly bent back towards the foot peg due to hitting the ground. The shifter has hit a few times on hard cornering to the left, and may have hit ground when bike was knocked over.
So I fixed it. You have to be careful with the cast aluminum as it can break easily. I used a propane torch to heat the shifter and slowly bend it back out with some real big channel lock pliers. Now I mean real slow. Heat, then put some pressure on it with pliers, heat again, pliers again, and keep doing it over and over. Took me about 30 minutes. No brake, no cracks, no stress. Now I have plenty of room.
