Pillion Footpeg Lowering
« on: March 12, 2017, 07:27:12 PM »
Hi all,
I have tried searching but it seems to come up with plenty of other subjects.

The wife would like a more comfortable position for her legs/knees so...
Has anyone lowered the pillion footpegs and what did you use?

Many thanks.

Thank you, that was a good starting point.  I have found a company in Wales - Sporttouring.co.uk who offer pretty much the same thing.

Who do Sporttouring.co.uk think they are? just looked on their web page and before I can view a single thing they have for sale they ask this ........

What's your name?
What's your email?
What's your mobile phone number?

Hi Turbo, I didn't get that at all. Able to go straight to look at things, no problem. Is there a cache problem perhaps for your settings?
Cheers, Bill.

Appreciate this is an older thread, but has anybody actually found a satisfactory means of lowering the pillion footrests either by having something fabricated or purchasing a proprietary item ?

Need to sort out something for the wife on my 2019 XRt.

I bought them for my ST1050 from M&P, they were MFW adjustable. Dunno if they do same for the T800.
