the pic with orange tape on it shows it only moves the unit out 3/16'',
someone didn't believe me.

here is the other side.

had to add 2'' to my shifter tie-rod.

i will be painting these silver, but i'd rather ride right now.

just got back from a long ride with them.

big inprovement for weighting the pegs in corners, just a much better position under you for doing this.

i like them better for getting up off the seat to stand, your legs are under you more then stock and makes it easier.

still not enough for me, i'm going back some more.

i will have to do some mods. to the brake hoses and brake light wire.

Nicely done!
What would you charge for a set?
I presume that with these the plastic beauty panels no longer fit.

right now those panels won't fit, thats my next project.
either try to fit them, but i think i'm going to make some plate to cover alot of that area up.

i did put some silver plugs over all the big holes today, and painted my plates silver.

i paid a local machinist to make these up for me after i gave him the template.
i would have to get $95. to make it worth my time.

with this plate system, you can put these pegs where ever you like, it doesn't have to be like mine.

if you like to talk, all my contact info is on my site, i can do PayPal too.

Hey Dave,

Where did you source the longer shifter tie-rod?

Thanks,
Steve

He cut it in half, then welded on a 2" extension.

Ah, okay. Thanks.

It looks like you can do it with hardware, too.. coupling nut, nuts, stud:



...

Would anyone else be interested in an adjustable rearset riser, like this?



I'm trying to convince cyclecontrol to develop one for the Versys.
