Default street bob brake pedal adjustment

is there a way to move the brake pedal up on a 08 fxdb? or perhaps someone makes a pad that fits over the pedal to make it taller?

You can adjust the brake rod at the rear of it at the master cylinder. If it is already up against the foot peg bracket then you can not adjust it any more.

as stated above it is a jam nut by the maser cyl, if that does not do it you may have to drill a new hold in the bracket to move it closer or further away or mod the pedal

I ground down the stock pedal flat and drilled a hole, used an aftermarket wide glide brake pedal pad.
