Lowering the brake lever was a little bit of a fuss getting the cotter pin out and I could only lower the pedal about 1/2 inch but it's fine.

Glad to see youre working through the issues youre having, hope it works for you in the end.

Just a friendly reminder since you adjusted your brake pedal, check your rear brake light and make sure it doesnt stick on. The pedal spring on the Z900 has a tendency to not take up the slack if you adjust it too far (for more clearance) which means you could be riding with your brake light on. If it doesnt stay on, then youre good!

Damn! I just checked and it's on. I guess that's what I'll be looking at in the morning. It never ends does it?

With the higher seat and the lower pegs it makes quite a difference I'm pretty happy. My right heel touches the muffler heat shield. It doesn't seem to do anything but I'm not real crazy about it. I'll give it some thought.
