poor man's lower foot pegs
« on: June 24, 2013, 03:49:40 AM »
At 6'1" I needed more leg room.  I ordered a taller seat.  But while waiting for the new seat to arrive, I came up with a free modification to the foot pegs that helped a lot.

I removed the foot pegs, dipped them in soapy water, and removed the rubber coverings.  The pegs are now about 1 inch lower and also a more comfortable reach to the shift lever (stock peg to shift lever distance is not ideal for size 12 feet).  An added bonus is the pegs function better, for me any way.  I do not like my feet stuck in one position by the rubber surface.  They also look better without the rubber covering, IMO.

Does anyone need a heated seat (Low) in excellent condition?  $250?

Can you take a pic and post, I would like to see what it looks like.  My problem is one of my knees ache and I think a bit more legroom would help.  Thanks.

JRickW,

Attached is a pic of peg with out rubber covering.

I like this modification, until someone like MFW produces some adjustable pegs.

A good, simple solution.

Has it given you any problems with grip on the peg? Feet slipping off at all?

No slippage yet.  My initial test, I left one peg stock and the other modified with no rubber covering.  I preferred the non covered peg.  I am also coming from nine years on a Multistrada with aluminum pegs (no rubber) so I might be biased.    :002:

I might try it out. Can always put it back on if it doesn't work for me!
