Lowering pegs for Bonnie T100

I have come up with the best and easist solution, you won't even believe it. After working myself into a frenzy to try and fabricate something that would make my 2012 Bonnie more leg friendly, I happened to look over at my 2008 Scrambler, and happened to notice the right rear peg.

Then I felt incredibly stupid.

So buy two right rear scram pegs, and you just solved your cramping problem and dropped your foot 1 1/2 inches, and man is it comfortable.

Thank you in advance for all the compliments I know you guys will send my way. Woo Hoo.

This, of course, absolutely requires a photgraph.

And, what is the effect on your cornering clearance?

Great solution for some, but the pegs scrap easily enough as is. Lowering them 1.5 inches mush really spark thing up.

It has no negative effect on cornering, I have ridden over 100 miles with this mod and it is fantastic.

Hey, if you are riding so aggresively that you are dragging pegs regularly, God Bless You. I ride a lot, all the time, don't push it quite that far. So for me, this was a GREAT solution.
