I had the same problem

I took the brake pedal off and cut it. Then had a welder weld in a piece of stainless steel to raise up the pedal a few inches. Worked like a charm.

You can adjust your brake pedal up a little more by rotating the rear brake arm (at the rear wheel).

http://www.ronayers.com/fiche/200_0...e_panel.cfm?man=ho&groupid=12350&parent=12320

Item 11...

Remove the bolt holding it on the rear brake panel, remove the brake arm and rotate 1 or 2 ridges clockwise. Then re-install on the shaft and install the bolt. Hopefully that will give you the needed room.

If you leave the brake wear indicator on the shaft, you will not have to worry about knowing when your rear pads have lived their life.

There is no other adjustment you can make to the pedal height. All the linkages are set...except for the pedal tension at the brake arm.

Hope this helps.

Has anyone ever worn out the rear brake pads on a Shadow?

Just curious...

I put 56,400 miles on my stock pads on my Spirit. I guess they are still going...when I sold the bike, I gave the new owner the pads I had bought at 30k thinking I would need to replace them soon.

I bought a new set of after market pads for the rear of my Shadow 1100 at about 45k miles. I just figured that they probably needed to be replaced. When I removed the rear wheel, I noticed that the stock pads were still thicker than the new one I have just bought. I put it back together as is and saved the new pads.

I just had mine checked at 31,000 miles and both frt and rear are at 50%, so I don't use them real hard, mostly use engine braking and down shifting.
