Can anyone with lower pegs comment on this? I don't want to sacrifice safety and fun over a minor cramping.
After lowering pegs i would drag them turning left or right from a stop sign. I removed the feelers and have not scraped them yet.

Do you have a drill? A couple short pieces of metal strap and a couple of nuts and bolts and you are on your way.

Wish the pax kit on Twisted Metal wasn't $120+new peg cost - my wife would like a little more leg room. May have to just get a local shop to fab something...

peg lowering - Thruxton

I bought the Discacciati rearsets (stunningly beautiful piece of kit!) and had another lug welded onto the frame below the existing set - that way it used only the bottom hole of the existing mounting and lowered the pegs by about 1". Also moved them back slightly. Also need a rear brake line and a new sprocket cover using this method (various suppliers do a more minimalist one - I used the Joker). It's not cheap but it personalises your bike and makes it infinitely more comfortable if you're 2M tall ..... or is that just me?
Definitely worth the effort

Awesome link, I'm definitely going to have to see about buying a pair or two. I wonder if those logos are decals or what... not a big UK flag fan tbh.

God I hope they are - they are by far the least expensive and look to do the trick simply. I've inquired whether they will work on the pax pegs as my wife doesn't like her legs tucked so far under her.
