    Is the rear brake foot lever adjustable? I would like to lower it slightly.

    It is. Not a lot, but hopefully enough for you.
    After you have adjusted the pedal height check the operation of the brake light switch.
    Chances are it will be permanently on so that'll need tweeking too.

    I'm being lazy.....how does one adjust the lever? Had a brief look and there was no apparent adjuster.
