Question Lowering footpeg kit

Hey guys,

Does anyone know of any page where I can find a kit to lower the foot pegs of a V650 2008? I only found motowerk but they ask for $ 50 for it: crying: maybe you have a coupon code over there? : stickpoke:

Thanks in advance!

Let me say you get what you pay for, I may be biased as I own almost everything that Speedy makes for the Versys.

Hey @onewizard I'm pretty sure they will be a excellent piece, but just triying to save some $$ to buy the crash bars

On the face, lowering blocks may seem like an item to take lightly...until one snaps & you end up wrecking your bike or body. How many times does your full weight end up on the pegs or higher loads hitting a bump with you butt off the seat? Remember...your shoe lace only breaks when you're going someplace.

+1 Yes, they may seem a little pricey, but they are a slam dunk install, they look good, and they keep your footpegs in vertical alignment with their original position so your reach to the shifter is the same. Yes, you will probably want to adjust the shifter down some, but that is really easy with that little threaded rod from shifter to tranny. You may or may not need the "adjustable brake lever nut", it depends on your riding foot position. Not sure what other units/prices you might find out there, but remember it is a one time investment in quality. AND, I have no connection with MotoWorks - I just appreciate a quality product with good on line instructions.

Forty years away from 2 wheel fun. Sure is great to be back smelling the roses!!!

I would go with the Motowerk stuff. I have it on my V1k. Speedy has great stuff, reliable, excellent customer service. Check out some of Weljo’s videos on YouTube. You get what you pay for.
