A broken foot peg at speed could be catastrophic, be very careful with your selection.

Indeed. I have the RR pegs. Will be looking at the motowerks lowering kit.

Indeed.   Rally Raid foot pegs are more expensive, but they are of solid construction and well proven.

Definitely like them, except for the few times I've hit my shins on them. Also noticing that a lot of the RR stuff has sharp edges, like the rear reservoir and the sheetmetal part of the engine guard. They snip a small notch and bend, which leads to very sharp corners. Will be filing them pretty soon.

I just installed the RR pegs with the MotoWerks lowering pegs today. I did machine a spacer to between legs of the RR pegs as I didn't like it just hanging there on the bolt. This will give it more strength is my thinking. Haven't tested as I'm in the middle of doing the RR level2 kit too.

Should of used round bar but didn't have any, so I just made a couple of square ones.
They just slide in where the spring would normally go, now you can tighten the bolt all they way down, so now there is also the faces have 100% contact to better transfer any load.

What's that phrase,, a picture paints a thousand words. A nice Simple way to lower the foot rests with out adding much more stress through the foot rest hanger.

what, if anything, did you do with the shift lever and brake pedal?
does the wide peg you use give any problems with the shift lever and room for your foot?

A pic of your install would be great.
