    Finally got around to finishing a lowered and extended brake lever for my F800ST, its 20mm lower and 20mm further out.
    I'd already made a lower gear lever (previous thread) to suit the lower MV Verholen footrests, and finished and fitted this one today.

    It was a bit of a bugger to make - not the actual machining, but the fixturing for the machining was a pain. Happy its done now.

    Is that manual or CNC machined? It looks like a factory product. Excellent work.

    Sadly don't have the facilites - or skill!! - for such a masterpiece so have gone the cheats' way: this extension off the dreaded AliExpress, main thing is it's machined to locate on the pedal 'treads'. (Main thing for me was the extension, been on the link-brakes K1200RS for about 4 years so having to get out of the habit of using only the front brake, and don't want to be hunting for the 'petite' F-ST item!!)

    CNC, I've got one in the garage. Been keeping me nicely distracted with little projects during our lockdown.

    Wow!
    Beautiful work.
    If you ever feel the need to make another for $ - let me know.
    I'm probably going to have to head down exactly the same road for my newly acquired F800ST.
    Thank god for projects during lockdown.
    Cheers

    Hi,
    Very good to see what is achievable in your garage. I can appreciate the work as I trained as toolmaker as an apprentice and now have moved onto other engineering in automotive development.

    Hi All
    I lowered the footrests on my F800S just after I got it and realised I had to do the gear lever and brake pedal too. Had a search and found the old thread - its more than 10 years ago!!! and the bike is still magic to ride. Have a look at the Thread below and reply #26
    That machined brake pedal looks great.
    All the best from New Zealand in lockdown
