I have a 9 1/2 foot size but the gear shift feels to close and down from the footpeg. Are there any replacement footpegs on the market. Can this be modified so it feels better to get under the gear shift when shifting up.

I feel you, I wear a similar size (10) boot and it was a learning curve for me to shift on this bike. I catch the shifter with the top side of my boot sole, been shifting like that for years as I found it diffcult to get my toe under most shifters.
I found this on the forum:
http://www.r3-forums.com/forum/522-drivetrain/4601-adjusting-shifter-r3.html
here is a youtube video showing how to adjust the shifter, different bike but similar idea:

it would appear that he shifter is adjustable, maybe give this a try it.
Most of the rear sets I have seen for the r3 put the Peg and the Shifter in a more aggressive riding position.
