I had Joe (Chuckster) Norris modify a new brake arm for my Voyager. He did a great job on this and was very fast completing this project. He added 2-5/8" length to the original and kept the same angle for the rubber pad.

For you Voyager owners here this is a must have mod for these bikes. This will also work for the Nomad and the Vaquero in black powdercoat.

Next we are working on extending the heel and toe shifter.

These two mods will make long and short rides much more comfortable and enjoyable for me.

Here is Joe's link if you would like more information from him

Great idea and I agree about it being a must have. I talked to Joe on the phone and he seems very easy to work with. I told him that in my opinion the heel part of the shifter did not need to be extended since it does not interfere with the foot-pad.(I only use the toe myself anyways). He said that he can extend the toe part only on mine which is ideal for me, others might want something different.
Thanks for bringing this up JD Hog !

How much were you thinking on the front measurement?

I measured the Harley Touring bike shifter and they have 11-1/4" clearance in between the two pegs. The rear peg does overhang the floorboard a little also. Because of this you don't have full use of the back end of the floorboard.

The Voyager has 12" in between the pegs and the rear peg is just behind the floorboard so you have the full use of the back end.

The Harley aftermarket shifters add 1" front and back for a total clearance of 13-1/4".

I'm now thinking that you are correct on leaving the back peg where it is and just adding to the front peg only.

What are your thoughts on this?
