Lower Foot Pegs
on: June 07, 2018, 04:51:00 AM
Well I installed the lowering foot peg kit from Moto Werk. I also changed the footpeg with a SW-MOTECH ION Dual Position Foot Peg Kit. "Bought the footpeg from twistedthrottle" and bought the Moto Werk lowering kit from Moto Werk. Both arrived within a day of each other. :001:
The fitment was excellent and has taken the pressure off my knees and when standing I'm at the perfect position with the bars. I nolonger have to lean over and get a sore back.

Did you have to adjust the gear and foot brake pedal positions with the lowered pegs? If so, is that easy to do?

Thanks for sharing. I'm currently in the process of fitting the bike to me. The lowering kit is on my radar.

Nice pics.

d
the gear shifter is straightforward...loosed one (or both) of the heim joint locknuts and turn the rod...the shifter will raise or lower depending which way you turn it.

The rear brake lever has no adjuster to speak of, but you can lengthen/shorten the stroke of the piston relative to the pedal which has the same effect. Normally, you'd loosen the lock nut and turn the clevis pin bracket...not had cause to do it on the X so I may be wrong.

Didnít know they did peg lowering kits for the Cb500x.......thatís great news. I knew they did them for the vstrom which has less seat to peg room than the cb. How much lower are the pegs?
Cheers

i bought some of these myself. nicely made but, their instructions warned not to put your full weight on one peg. this didn't inspire confidence. i would hate to loose a peg while standing

Any update on the peg lowering kit from anyone? I am interested in doing this and hoping the kit from Motowork is still recommended. Thanks in advance.

I had a pair and will say there OK nothing more and would never stand up using them -if you would see them you would under stand why-I think pegs built lowered and made of steel would be a much better option
It's not a big motorcycle just a groovy little motorbike

Thank you for your honest feedback.  :020: I wonít get them right away, then. Iíll make sure I absolutely need them first and still keep my eyes open for stronger options.
