Lower footpegs available?
« on: March 24, 2013, 06:36:55 PM »
Hello,

now that I am 1980 mm tall I found the position of the knees at the tank a little uncomfortable. Has anyone heared of lower footpegs in preparation from any supplier? 20 mm would help  :018:

Cheers,

Tiger-Willi

I am with you on this one TW. I am 5' 9" (177cm) tall and I find that I get back ache sometimes. I am wondering whether it is my knees that are too bent and whether lower pegs would be of any benefit. I cannot think of any other reason why my back would ache.

MFW makes a variable adjustable bracket for the Tiger maybe someone here can tell us if they will mount on the TT ...

Robin,

I take it you have set the seat to the "high" position? I find that "reaching" for the bars is a bigger cause of back ache than the pegs and this was the reason that I put bar risers on my Pan. I will be doing the same on the Trophy as soon as somebody makes them!

Cheers,

No I am a short legged person. It is a low heated seat set in it's lowest position. I find if I am on busy road requiring a lot of focus, the back doesn't ache. If it is a quiet run it does. I suspect you are right and that my arms are reaching too much. A set of risers may sort it or dropped pegs. I am not sure which would be the best to buy. I have only had back ache once before on my CBF1000. That was cured by adjusting the bars.

Ah, I see your problem.  :084:

There is no getting round the fact that the Trophy is a big bike. I'm not sure bar risers or peg lowering kits are available yet. Let us know how you get on.

Bar risers should be an easy task for Heli or another manufacturer. Looks like there is plenty of slack in the clutch and break lines and only 3 bolts per bar. I might try it myself ( have a mill in the garage ) Just need a second set of bolts.
