She appears to be well outfitted. I hope you exercise her more than her last pilot did!

Changed the oil/filter, spark plug and flushed the brake lines today. Also changed the broken choke enricher nut and put on some new mirrors. I hated the stock mickey mouse ears. Ordered a rear stainless brake line to help with the rear brake. Guess I wasted my time flushing the rear today.... I want to replace the turn signals but am researching the led flasher and dash bulb change.

I don't know what issue you may have with your rear brake.
A less flexible stainless hose will reduce some of the excessive pedal stroke.

But I find that if we loosen the top 12mm nut on the brake clevis & then remove the cotter pin / clevis pin and adjust the pedal tip up till the pedal almost touches the underside of the clutch cover, one doesn't have to over-flex our ankle so far.

The brake pivot & linkage distances just don't quite work together correctly.

Some owners bolt a taller pad onto the pedal tip. Some owners install Knight Design "down & back" foot pegs. Some owners install JNS "down & back" foot peg Brackets with Moose or IMS foot pegs.
