Hi Paulhere,

Transpires Sport Touring still stock them for the 800 - about 130 a pair and look pretty well made.

How did you find them on the ST1050 in terms of usability/practicality ?

Thanks.

Sorry, I only just seen this, bit late now. Just fitted the MFW lowering kit to my Tiger Sport, it doesn't have the seat to peg room of the 800. I had to buy the bike specific bracket, then the drop & peg off the ST fitted. M&P were a lot cheaper than the sporttouring & don't get the bad reviews.

Yes, the lower pegs made the ST comfortable for me. Chopped the ST in for the Tiger Sport in 2014 so took the pegs off, found them in a box last week.

Have you fitted same to yours now?

Has it given you the same seat to peg room as the 800? I would have quite liked a Sport but it was too cramped for me.

I fitted the 30mm drop-arm, they also do 23mm & 50mm.
Spirit level across seat for measurement, 525mm for TS & 530mm for T8.
T8 seat on low setting. TS Tony Archer removed 20mm then fitted a gel pad, so it's maybe 10mm lower than stock.
