Motowerk Front Peg lowering kit

Hi All -

Just wanted to say I delayed the purchase of these as a "non essential" farkle - and am sorry that I did. The bike is more comfortable and the installation was very easy. It took me about 30 minutes, and most of that was adjusting the brake play which I was never happy with when I bought it.

Great Motowerk product and $50 gets my 6'1'" frame much more at ease...

Same here, but 6'5" and add another 30 min looking for the dang c-clip that I launched across the garage....

C clips are the work of the devil.

Best and most underated improvement for that bike. I'm a short guy that appreciates a little distance from my feet to my hips.

at least we're only dealing with c clips and not snap rings.

Snap rings are ten times as bad... I'll give you that.

One question though, are there issues with dragging the pegs after they are lowered? I suspect not but would like a bit of feedback.

I've scraped pegs a few times since lowering them. Not too big a deal other than the initial surprise.

I've dragged mine (LEFT one, anyway...) 7 times. You're WAY-Y-Y over when you do! That's what those peg "feelers" are for.

I unscrewed mine and tossed 'em out...... Boot sole's the first thing that touches now.
