Adjustable Brake Rod...
Why Doesn't Harley 
Make Them?!


 Can't answer for Harley but...


  • This rear brake rod adjusts 1".   This adjustable rod gives you a whopping 3 1/4" range of adjustment for your brake pedal, allowing you to put the brake pedal in the most comfortable position for You. 
  • By being able to adjust the brake pedal about 1" closer (up) than stock, or up to 2.25" further (down) than stock, you can put the brake pedal where it is most comfortable, and where you have the best control in rear brake application, making for much safer braking. 
  • This Adjustable Brake Rod will work with your factory brake pedal or with the DK Custom Billet Brake Pedal, which you can see HERE.  It is an easy install.
  • The Stainless Rod, Heim Joints & Coupler can be polished to a chrome like finish, or, after you have your adjustment dialed in, you can paint it the color of your choice.
  •  This is one of those "little mods" that can really make a difference in the Comfort & Safety of Your Ride!
  •  There is a drop down for year models AND whether you have Forward or Mid Controls.

 Make your ride Safer AND more Comfortable!!!

 "This feels much better now.  I no longer have to move my foot on the peg to get a good position on the brake pedal." -Devin






Customer Reviews

Much Needed Review by David
This definitely helps! I wish there was more adjustability and I think one side should be reverse threaded so it can be lengthened or shortened without having to remove it. (Posted on 10/4/2021)

Perfect product! Review by Ed
This is the brake rod Harley should install on all Sporties. Great quality, easy to follow instructions, good value for the price and completely eliminated the need for awkward foot movement when applying the rear brakes. (Posted on 7/2/2020)

Quality product, quality Customer Support Review by Victor
My 2007 Sportster's brake pedal has a solid bar attached to it so it can't be adjusted. The adjustable brake bar is a solution and DK Custom Products part is of high quality. The one I received was a little too long for the adjustment I desired. Their customer service emailed me back within a few hours and fixed the problem. I would recommend them to everyone.

2017 XL1200CX adjustable brake rod Review by Adk XL
Does exactly what it is designed to do. Me being short created one issue. I installed a HD Reach seat day one and then (after the first season) sent it to Sargent Seats to move the rise forward another 1-1/2". Consequently my adjustment of the brake pedal caused it to interfere with the stock muffler shield when deploying the brake. Without the shield installed- no issue. So I cut an oblong hole in the shield under the brake lever and it works perfectly. Devin has a photo of the modification. (Posted on 4/23/2020)
It worked Review by Mark
I installed it on a 2006 Sportster. Switching from forward to mid controls. Believe I purchased a newer model mid-control set because I had to bend an ā€œSā€ curve in the straight link to get the brake cylinder end of the link close enough to the frame to attach and not bind. Works fine after modification. (Posted on 2/13/2020)
