There’s an outfit in Eugene OR, called Knight Designs. They have developed foot pegs that bolt into the OEM carrier with a 1” offset ‘down’ with various tread patterns cut into them.Has anyone ever lowered the footpegs on their bikes? I'm thinking a small drop would increase comfort by a lot.
After seeing the pics, I'm pretty sure a friend has them on his DRZ400. He likes his as well. Not cheap but pretty well made it looks like.I have them mounted on my’09, there is no noticeable change in lean angle at street speeds. Footing is slightly wider, as the dropped part of the footing is outboard of the pivot.
Sounds good. You haven't done anything with handlebars, have you? Helibars doesn't make anything but I haven't spent a lot of time looking elsewhere.CNC machined from billet, would be my expectation. High quality in tooling and finish. Prompt service, too.
No slop, direct drop in replacement for the OEM peg….. you reuse the spring that holds the peg flat, as well as the pin and circlip used to mount the OEM peg.
The outer tip of the lowered peg has slightly better clearance than the peg feelers on my OEM pegs.
I have yet to touch the feelers on the deck, so I don’t expect to have the lowered peg so so.
