Rear Brake master cylinder adjustment?

Hi there, I am trying to find out whether there is a possible adjustment for the Nissin rear brake master cylinder (2010 KLR model). Mine seems to have a lot of free play before braking power. Any suggestions welcome.... THANK YOU

Raising the pedal may help. There's a nut on the master cylinder shaft (right above the pedal attachment) for height adjustment.

The KLR rear brake always feel kinda mushy to me. Fresh fluid and no air bubbles in the line firm it up some but still.
