I know what your saying and I went out to the shed and had a look, the camera angle does no justice to the job though. I have got plans to mill 4mm (just just over 1/8) off the face where the brake pedal mounts and the master cylinder mounts, this will make things a bit better and bring the pedal and master "inboard" so to speak. I was curious to test the crash angle and it layed the bike on the ground with the foot peg folded up to check the angles out and the rear master is a long way away from hitting any thing, I would have to land on a massive odd shaped rock or log to do any real damage. We will see what happens when I have a few shake down runs.

Cheers for the input makes me feel like someone is listening/looking

Build it and you will ride
