Honda XR400 - Brake pedal question

Dear all,

I have a question about the rear brake pedal on my '98 Honda XR400R.
The standard brake pedal fitted does not have a big enough contact patch for me...especially when riding standing up or doing wheelies.
is there a larger Brake pedal available? or should I just try and weld a bit more metal on?

Any suggestions?

Thanks
Lars

I've never seen an aftermarket brake pedal for an XR4. Your quest may take a bit of metalwork.

I'm familiar with the quality of work you've posted here over the years. Any pics?
