peg lowering kit

I think I bought a set of these years ago for my 08 t100 but lost them before I could put them on the bike.

I could of swore I bought a set from a member here but I cannot remember who.

Are these being sold by anyone still?

If you bought them years ago then they were no doubt made by member Modre. Unfortunately he succumb to a bad attitude, and no longer makes them. You might try member Ropeferry as he is offering a similar kit (w/o the required hardware).

Read this thread to find out more... http://www.triumphrat.net/twins-talk...xtensions.html

modre hardly succumbed to a "bad attitude"... he's just not at the public's beck & call.
I handmade & delivered close to 100 sets like a gentleman...enjoy those pegs guyz.
Those who missed it...wow.

Lately, I've been composing music..."Me & My Swamp Hog" is a particularly good choice...

This is something I've been researching recently. I'm new to the Bonneville so wasn't on the scene when Modre made his lowering kits. I found this thread about them though and a lot of people saying good things about them: http://www.triumphrat.net/943915-post16.html

Other options I'm looking at is fitting the out riggers from a Scrambler. This looks like it will lower the pegs by about 1 inch and move them slightly forward too. This also has the advantage that the peg mounts where the clevis pin goes through are part of the out rigger and not attached by a bolt. There's a thread on here about the bolt breaking.

Lastly I found these things which let you lower as well as move forward and backwards. They look pretty good. I'd consider getting the longest arms and setting them to about 7 o'clock so they move down and forwards:

Hi Modre, I'm the very recent owner of a new Thruxton and I love everything about it but I'd definitely benefit from a little more legroom (bike crash 25 years ago when I was young & foolish = arthritic knee!) If you make some more peg adaptors that fit my Thruxton can you please add me to the list of customers, thanks

Paul, I am pretty sure Modre is not making them any more.

I just bot a new T100 Saturday and was looking at the vario-pegs, thinking it might be good to not only lower the pegs, but move them a little forward. Please post the results of the 50mm extension legs if you decide to go that route.
