I just put my new pm machine/ness brake lever and shifter on. The parts fit great but the brake pedal is way to close to the boards. There are 3 screws on the side of the brake lever. I thought maybe a could adjust here but you can't. Has anyone else had this and is there anyway to extend the master cylinder shaft? Does anyone else have these and do they look like this?

Looks normal to me. The shifter looks kinda high though.

Stand the bike up and check the installed height of the boards... may be a visual difference because you are on the stand, but it looks like the brake side baord is higher. That board is adjustable up down and back front, The passenger is dictated by the front mount and cant be changed... make sure they are both installed the same height before trying to adjust the brake lever itself!

How do you adjust the board height? Do you have to buy new brackets? I guess i wish I could get my feet underneath like I can on the shifter side. Thanks

both brackets will rotate together. Just loosen them and they will roll forward or backward. There is also 3 notches in the front mount of the frame allowing different installed heights... at least that is true on my 2001, not sure on other years...

Mine is that close. It's ok for me, but I may be taller and have a different angle on it.

I have your same setup but with PM brake and shift lever. The only thing I needed to adjust was the shifter. I'm 5'11" with a 32" inseam.

There's a lot of real estate on those boards.

My '02 road King is same as above. You could cut a piece out of the front bracket, weld and powdercoat.
