    Pillion foot pegs lowering

    Folks, my wife is fairly tall, 5'10". When she is on the motorcycle with me her only complaint is that her legs are bent so much for a long time. Can someone point me in the right direction to modify the length of the pillion foot pegs, im thinking about 4-6"!


    Thanks in advance!!!

    That's probably going to be a metal fab shop project. Should be pretty straightforward though.

    option 1. you could rebuild this entire part to drop the passenger peg.

    option 2. get a block of aluminum and make a "drop leg" that pins in the original slot, but allows the use of adjustable aftermarket pegs

    option 3. stop and smell the flowers a bit more

    Maybe one of them (or similar) is close enough to modify.
