An easy way to lower your footpegs

Recommended Posts

After a trip to the White Mtns. last month I decided to lower my V11 LeMans foot pegs for a bit more comfort.  My mechanic and I found a way to lower the stock foot pegs using existing mounting holes.  It lowers them about an inch.  I can gain another inch if I switch to Buell pegs.  But for now, these are significantly more comfortable. Attached are before and after pics of both sides.  The left side is a simple swap.  The right side needs a different bolt.

(Still lovin' the bike Tim!  It's my go to GT bike.)

As Gomer would say, "well gawleeee".

So the pegs are tight and shifting and braking aren't encumbered?

The pegs are tight.  Neither lever is encumbered.  I might adjust the shift lever down just a bit to compensate for the lower peg.

Adjusting the shift lever down probably wont help as the lever will hit the pork chop. What you need now is this.

I did exactly what you have done as soon as I got the bike, that and drilled headstock to accept higher bars, a comfy bike.

Wow, nice simple tip. Not only going down but a little back as well, I can see that being worthwhile.

I keep reading about the Buell pegs being a good fit,,, are they all the same or are there pegs from specific model Buells to watch for?

Tks

The part number are: N0520.1AD  and N0521.1AD.  Check Amazon and maybe St Paul Harley Davidson.

They are available.
