I have a pair on my bike right now also the brake pedal cover works well- grip is alot better and they look good-brake pedal was fine did have to adjust the shift pedal up a bit. no big deal-seems to shift better(like it needed it) being your foot is flat and not rocking on the round peg

It's not a big motorcycle just a groovy little motorbike

I use the Rally Raid footpegs and they are wide and slightly higher that the originals..
Gear change...just make slight adjustment and it worked for myself.
Brake pedal..no need to adjust if you feel it's too high..answer (for me) just bought a cheap and grippier extension plate that fits on the top of the pedal area...like a smaller version of the foot peg extensions.
It has the effect of raising the pedal and gives a greater footpeg area.
It all works and would not consider going back to stock.
By the way,boots are size UK 9 and an adventure style boot, my solution works for me with trainer style bike boots  and Forma trials boot.
Also...I have zero problem accessing  the side stand by using the back of my boot to pivot the foot peg backwards and my foot just finds the sidestand 'ball'...no modification to the sidestand at all.
It is the 2018 sidestand on a 2019 bike but that 'ball' is in exactly the same place.

Good to hear.  Do you have a link to the brake pedal pad you used?

Found it but wow they want $41cdn.  In GB it's only 7£ but they don't ship to Canada.  I'll see how the new foot pegs feel first then decide.

As the foot peg plate is steel...I would be tempted to make a plate with some blobs of weld on and bolt it to original..if they were costing too much.

I think it was 8£ if my memory serves me.  Wait until my pegs come in and I'll see how the brake feels.  I appreciate the offer.
