Lowered Passenger Foot Pegs
« on: May 11, 2019, 02:32:10 PM »
I searched and can't find specific information about passenger pegs.

My wife is 5'9" and I need to lower the passenger pegs.  Several good applications I have found on the web, just won't work with the VFRX. 

Has anyone found lowered pegs for the passenger mounts?

Pics would be fantastic!

John, As you look at lowering the passenger foot pegs keep in mind the clearance between the passenger foot pegs and you legs and feet. You don't want to get jammed up with your feet and legs on the rear pegs or the pillions feet. From what I have seen with lower pegs regardless of front or rear the lateral position of the peg also gets moved.

 :0461: my misses and my feet/legs occasionally clash when I put my feet down. Lowering pegs would certainly make this worse.

I had a pillion lowering kit fittted to my old FJR ( with no such issues) Were made by a company called “ Motorcycle Larry “ in the USA. I know that Larry passed away but I think the family were keeping the company going. Beautifully made parts oven the paint/ powder coat was the right shade.

Look at the picture of the pegs on the website I referenced. Looks like they are two parts, with a base that is castellated at junction to peg, apparently allowing the peg to rotate into a few “locked” positions around the axis. That ability to rotate the peg into one of several positions might give relief from some of the lateral fit issues.

Yeah, I think I have decided to do nothing. 

The Russell Saddle is pretty tall for the Pillion.   Should do the trick.
