Highway Pegs

I can understand why the pegs on the Versys 1000 are high. It gives the rider a good position for adventure-style riding. However, for a 6' guy, I find my legs become cramped after a while, and I'd like to stretch them out.

What alternatives to these stock pegs are out there? I have searched and found Moto Werk, MotoPreserve, Rivco, R&G, etc. What are people using?

Thanks.

I have the Moto Werk lowering foot peg blocks installed as well as the rear break nut. I also have a 2017 Concours and used the Murphs Kits foot pegs. Both systems provide about 1.5 inches of extra length. Doesnt sound like much, but its a big comfort improvement. Im getting ready to install highway pegs. I purchased the Rivco set up and also have the Moto Werks Highway peg system that another member (Weljo) gave me. I believe Weljo2001 has some YouTube videos on this topic as well.

I have exactly the same, however just modified the mount



FYI Riveco worth every penny, those have over 50,000 KM and 9 years on them.

Go To Rivco

https://rivcoproducts.com/shop-by-ca...unts-pegs.html look at about page #3, several styles of mounts, I don't think anything made by Speedy will fit that tubing.

I like Rivco products. I'll contact them. BTW, I'm going to be out your way Wed. or Thurs. Are you free during the day? Interested in a coffee?

Today I ordered highway pegs from Rivco - Black, Flatfoot Wide Peg Set https://rivcoproducts.com/shop/metri...pegswbk-black/

And Moto Werk Highway Peg Mounts for 1 Inch Dia Bars - https://rivcoproducts.com/shop/metri...pegswbk-black/

I think that should do the trick. Not the cheapest, but in the long run I think that's the way to go. Because of the Givi engine guard, I didn't think traditional highway pegs and mounts would work. It would leave the pegs too high.

Installed the Moto Werk Highway Peg Mounts and Rivco Flatfoot Wide Peg Set today. Took a 20 minute test ride afterwards (outside temp is a little under freezing). Really like the highway pegs. Very pleased!

I got the same mounts and on the 4 bolt frame clamp put one extra long bolt and mounted some cheap 10W LED to the clamp. Not too much light but better visibility to oncoming traffic and no cost for mounts. The accessory plug is in the fairing if you order the right plugs the switched power is right there. They might be better up high but then they crowd the blinkers and headlight a little. Just a thought but I'm going to leave them for now.
