Yes it's very easy.
Pull back on the clip-pin that secures the lower clevis to the pedal.
Loosen the nuts, one is left threaded as I recall.
Adjust the rod to make it shorter, which will raise the pedal.
Took about 5 minutes after I figured out how to release the clevis pin.

Also, look into bleeding the system. Make sure your reservoir is not emtpy, can look full if the internal bladder is unfolded.

Do as suggested above but don't do too much at once. If you over turn it you will lock up the rear brake after it heats up... possibly.

My bike has a cover over the brake pedal assembly that goes on up to the structure that holds the pannier bags. Sorry for the obvious question but those big bolts just come right off and then remove the panel cover, correct?

If you're talking the boot guard... that can stay in place.
Also, my bike does not have a center stand, so that might make the adjustment more difficult.

Mine does have the center stand and I suppose thats the boot guard. Theres no access to any of linkage unless that cover is removed, I'll go eyeball it further! Thanks
