Ride Report

Just returned from a quick 500 mile trip. My fist lengthly experience with the new lowered foot pegs.

Conclusion:

They are amazing. The 30mm makes a world of difference on an extended ride. Short rides indicated they would be an improvement, but after 4 continuous hours in the saddle, they are a vast improvement. Well worth their price.

I will go as far to say that they will double my daily riding mileage comfort limit.

It's the knees, man! Gotta have knee room!

How easy are they to install and set up?

And one more question ... have you scraped them yet? If so, how much do they impinge on cornering clearance? Thanks in advance ...
Cal,

I haven't scraped them yet. I've tried on our local county roads, but so far, no.

Obviously they have a bit less ground clearance than stock. I may be able to scrape them when I tour the mountains.

Either way, I needed the knee room and I needed the comfort. If I hadn't discovered the lower pegs, I would have traded the Sprint. I'm tall and my legs were too cramped for lengthly (day-long) rides.

For comparison, my mate has a 2008 K1200S. We compared them side by side. Now, my Sprinty has the exact same leg room as the larger K bike. Just sit on a stock K bike and you will feel exactly how my Sprint feels.

One advantage of these pegs is that they are fully adjustable, 360 degrees. In just a few seconds, I can swing them upward, adjust the shifter and brake lever and actually ADD more ground clearance. Thirty MM's worth higher.

Keep them low for road trips. Adjust them high for a track day.

Appears to be a win-win.
