What did you do to your stock bike to adapt it to your physical size and riding style? Without accessorizing.. that's a whole other subject.
I did (or had my dealer do) the following:

- Moved the clutch lever in .5CM so I can one finger clutch
- Adjusted the brake pedal down .5CM so I'm not constantly dragging the brake
- Tightened the pro-link suspension from '2' to '4' using the pin wrench since I frequently ride at max gross weight
- Removed the air filter cover to increase the sound signature for safety reasons​

I didn't know you could adjust the brake pedal. Is that in the manual?

I set the suspension from 2 to 3....and then adjusted the brake switch so i could use my foot to activate the brake light without actually braking (get people off my a$$)
Try as i might to be a 2 or 3 finger person, i am just gonna have to get used to the fact that i am a 4 finger clutch and brake lever guy

Sorry, I don't know if its in the manual but I expect so. Full manual is available; search this site.
I had my dealer do the clutch and brake adjustment this time since its safety critical.

I have the PDF manual. I just don't recall seeing how to do the brake pedal adjustment in there. I know the clutch adjust info is in there though.

FWIW, the U.S. Service manual shows a bolt and locknut for adjusting the brake pedal height in the 'Maintenance' section...
