Adjustable riders foot pegs, to lower the pegs

Hey gang:

Have a pal that needs to lower his rider foot pegs, on his 2003 FZ1.

Having a problem with a locked left knee, and cannot bend his left leg enough, to use the o.e.m. riders pegs.

So, any help would be appreciated.

And thanks for your help.

Dean

If you don't find something of good quality there are several $40ish sets of adjustable pegs on ebay from China. Various offsets.

Thanks for the info, guys.

My friend went ahead, and ordered some black riders pegs, that can be lowered a full 40 m.m.'s/one and half inches.

Always great to receive helpful info here, on the forum.

All the best,

Dean

P.S. Jon, your name gets mentioned fairly often, by a very quiet rider. I talk about you, a few times, also. lol!

No, they are Chinese. About 65 bucks, with the shipping to the east coast.

They should work for him. Time will tell.

Dean let me know how these work out. I have Buell pegs now and I can barely make the Bend on my left knee. An inch lower would be huge. Or I could send in my Corbin and get it made taller. Would rather drop the pegs.

I will try to keep in contact with the person, who has ordered the inch and half, lower riders pegs.

And let me know if you want to get rid of the Buell pegs, at some point.

Dean

P.S. My Corbin gunfighter seat on my 2001 FZ1, is a bit higher than my Sargent seat on my 2002 FZ1. I can feel a slight difference in ride height, with the Corbin.

Er, are those parts still available? Cause Dean used to bring that mod up all the time but given his comments above just assumed they were long gone.

Daddy what's a Buell? A bike that had design solutions in search of problems son.

You can still get those Buell pegs, Jon.

The reason i did not mention those to my friend back east, is that one has to do some work to the pegs, to make them work on a gen.1. Spacers have to be made, as the mounting hole in the Buell pegs, is larger than the o.e.m. mounting hole.

My friend back east, is not a gear head. So pegs that would mount without any work, were the order of the day for him.

That being said, i still have my Buell pegs, on my 2002, gen.1. I had a shall we say, a very quiet gear head, machine some spacers for said pegs.

And that same gear head, just brought a pneumatic tire changing machine, back from the dead! lol! Helped him de-mount the first tire on the machine, a few days ago. Bridgestone T30. One very stiff sidewall tire, from a KTM S.D. 990 wheel! You might remember, said wheel. lol!

Indeed I do remember that wheel. And, mounting DOT race hard compound tires on it wasn't much fun with a Harbor Freight changer

Hence the reason this quiet person grabbed the tire changer, for zero dollars!

He completely took the machine apart, and carefully rebuilt everything on it. Air lines, the gear box, etc. He had to heat the gearbox in his oven, to soften the bonding agent, to get the two pieces of the gearbox apart! Incredible, to say the least!

As we both know, this man is a genius! There is nothing he won't tackle, and put back correctly. Every time i see him, i learn something!

P.S. At eighty years of age, he can still ride like the wind!

Knight Design LLC is the place I was thinking of. I’ve seen their stuff. It’s top notch.

I researched lowering the pegs on my Gen1, earlier. Wasn't a lot out there with a definitive way of doing it. Seems like when done, you have to contend with problems with either the shifter and/or the rear brake pedal. Either they cannot be adjusted enough to compensate for the lowered pegs, or your feet are now offset outwards from the OEM position, causing problems with how your toes contact the end of either the shifter or rear brake pedal. Does the Buell set-up have these issues?

When i installed my Buell rider pegs on my 2002 FZ1, i had the rear brake pedal dropped down. To do that, a pal cut a "V" into the pedal, and bent it down in the middle of the pedal. He then welded the pedal back together, and the pedal is now one inch lower, than o.e.m. height. And of course, he painted the pedal, silver.

On the gear shift lever, i simply rotated the R1 shift lever one notch lower, and that dropped the gear shift lever about one inch, also. Works just fine for me, with my 36" inseam length.

Sounds like it wasn't very much trouble, for the extra comfort. Thanks.

Along with the MRA Vario adjustable windscreen, and the Buell pegs, were the two best things i did, to my 2002 FZ1. Braided steel brake lines front/back, "Uncaged" frame sliders, and Sargent seat, are right up there, also. The Akra titanium slip-on/mid pipe, was not a bad thing, either.

I have this ol' wreck of a 2002 FZ1, with 119,057 miles on it now, about straightened out for riding! lol! Getting my new to me a few months ago, 12,836 mile now 2001 FZ1, on the same path. lol!
