Yep! Check the spring return on the foot pedal and the adjustment knob.

I noticed mine the other day looks odd, it shows almost like it can be screwed downwards.. like I can see some of the thread space between the top plastic piece and the piece that connects to the brake pedal, is that normal?

I also have noticed something hot that sprays when I get going at good speeds, I can feel something hot splattering ( not like water hose spraying, like very very light mist ) against my ankle, although I check my ankle after a ride and nothing, almost like its just hot water or something.. And yes I wear sneakers on short rides like to the store down a block, otherwise I wear ankle support boots. Could that be related to the brake pedal and little hose there?

Yes. That's the adjustment for your brake light.

Are you sure it's not hot air coming off your exhaust? If it were brake fluid or other liquids, it should be there when you check your ankle. Check your coolant reservoir just in case.

FYI, Most accidents happen within 1 mile of your house. Invest in some good gear and wear it all the time. If you ever crash, you will thank me.

Have you had the tail off your bike? I had this same problem on my RR and found that one time when I pulled the tail off and rerouted the wire for the rear brake switch it was pulling on the spring return making it stay on no matter how loose I ajusted it. Just had to reroute the wire behind the tail fairing forward bolt and wala, fixed.
