Pegs....lower
« on: 19 April 2019, 11:08:20 PM »
Having done some searches and drawn a virtual blank, I am keen to know if anyone has  fitted lowered footpegs to accomodate a tall rider on a FZS1000? I am 6 ft 6 tall and have a knee replacement ..yes , old f*cker.
Keen to understand what works, AND what does not, and if anyone has any peg lowering solutions for sale???

haven't any for sale but you'll get some VARIO adjustable pegs from Busters,I forget how much they was but they're not fortunes. ;)
never look down on anyone unless you're helping them up.

Extra padding in or on the seat has same effect with less faffing about.

I’m far shorter than you at 5’09” but had similar problems with seat height / knee bend ratio. I was lucky enough to get a second hand raised seat from a fellow foccer and have fitted that. For me this has been enough to make a significant difference, although, if I was being completely honest, I’d rather it was maybe 5 or 10mm shorter, but I’ll cope as is.
The same foccer also sold me a set of adjustable foot pegs at the same time. As the seat suits me, I haven’t bothered with these. If you’re interested in them let me know and you can have them for what I paid. I’d have to check, but I think it was £30?.
Also, if you’re near to me, Oxfordshire / Berkshire borders and want to come and have a try on my raised seat, to see if something similar might suit you, get in touch.
