Lowering Foot Pegs
« on: February 14, 2020, 03:13:44 PM »
Has anyone tried these lowering foot pegs?

I know some more reputable brands make lowering pegs, but these are closer to my price range at the moment.

If you find a good solution, let me know! I'll do the same. For now, I'm going to try an Air Hawk seat pad to see if some lift there helps with the stock foot peg position. I'll let you know how that goes...

Same here and even on the high setting they are still slightly lower than the standard pegs but because they are thinner top to bottom you dont loose any ground clearance. They are so much more comfortable being wider as well.

A correctly inflated Air Hawk does not add any height. If you have it inflated so that it is increasing the height you are sitting on air and you will feel like there is jelly between you and the bike. On an Air Hawk the bones in you backside should just be touching the seat proper the tiny amount of air fills in the gaps.

Just a note of caution before lowering the pegs (or altering the dogbones) if you ride with your toes down a bit you'll ground your boots easily on corners.
