Adjustable height rear brake pedal alternatives?

I have a 2010 r1200gs. when standing on the pegs Im not able to easily depress the rear brake. I know that the adventure rear brake pedal has the adjustable height and that would be perfect, however I dont want to pay almost $200 for the OEM part when I already have a perfect working pedal. what are my alternatives?

I made one from a piece of scrap sheet-metal. Cut to size, bent to shape and bolted on top of stock pedal. It is NOT adjustable (cannot be flipped "on and off" like the big buck aftermarket ones, though if you added a "hinge" of some sort it could be). I have it and the pegs set up so the pedal is fairly comfortable when sitting or standing. Not perfect, but adequate for me. I cannot justify paying as much for the aftermarket one as I did for my first bike! Sorry I don't have a pic (bike is in storage for winter).

I'm having the same dilemma. I want a larger brake pedal but can't swallow the $200.

I've looked at some of the Touratech and AltRider options, but $40 for a two inch plate seems just as crazy (at least in my mind).

I'm pretty handy and have basic shop tools, even a drill press. I've been thinking of making own. Any suggestions from people that have done this.

Those are a long the lines I was thinking. Just a simple plate to make the brake lever bigger. Looks like I found my next tinker project.
