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.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
