lowering foot pegs

Hello All. I've got a 2010 K1300GT. I recently installed lowering footpegs 40mm (Wunderlich) which gives me a more relaxed leg position. With this I added a larger gear lever and brake pedal. The only issue that I have is that the brake pedal is a lot higher than my foot, meaning it's annoying. Anyone know of a bolt-on kit that relocates the rear brake master cylinder to a lower position. Adjusting the rod, does not lower the pedal enough. Thanks in advance!

No kits made for the brake pedal. One guy said he had a welder extend the pedal in the curved section. I'm waiting for a picture to see what it looks like. I was going to buy a used one and try to heat it to bend it about 1/2".

No info on a kit, but I recall there has been some info out there on adjusting the brake pedal. I did a google search on "adjust brake pedal k1200gt" and got some results. Take a look:

Also, search on Moymurfs user here, he posted a fix that requires some hacking.....but the pics have disappeared.

I bought a used pedal on eBay and had the machine shop at work heat and bend it. Came out okay.
