    With a 34" inseam and a bum left leg, sometimes the peg-to-seat distance on my Stelvio was a little too tight in that it forced me to bend my left leg a little more than was comfortable on an otherwise extremely comfortable motorcycle. It wasn't the case every day, but sometimes. So, I ordered a set of Knight Design lowered foot pegs (1-3/8 inches lower) and their lowered toe pegs to go with them. I finally got around to putting them on last night. I like 'em! They give me the relief I need and they are really nicely crafted.

    I spent over an hour looking for the retaining clip that went sailing across the garage floor when I took the old right peg off since I needed it to install the new ones! I finally found it. Good thing as there was nowhere in my town to get one on a Saturday night!

    Nice, I would like to do the same for my Griso. Thanks for the photos.

    Oh the irony... I sold those here on this site for almost 4 years... never a post like this on them. I pulled them because people seem to go around me to buy them anyway, and the posts start flowing. Oy.

    Isn't that always the way? I checked and double-checked to see if you had them before I ordered. I would have rather given you the biz, Todd.

    OMG!
    I was searching something like that lowered lever tips for long time!
    I'm going to order it immediately, I hope that they can ship them to Europe.

    Thanks Decotriumph! :clap:

    I've been using the knight designs pegs now for 20,000 miles on my Griso and one of the things I've noticed is you have to point your foot inward to pickup the shifter. Going down is not hard just going up. When my 22 year old son rides the Griso he has a real problem with it. I attribute it to a "spreading effect" of the drop pegs.

    I don't know how stock pegs work because I've never used them.

    I haven't noticed any problem and I went straight from the stock ones to the KD. Do you have the dropped shifter peg, too?

    I compared the stock shifter and brake pegs to the Knight Design ones today. The Knight Design pegs are about 3/8" longer than the stock ones.

    The arm of the pegs from MFW can be rotated, so you can move them a little forward/backward.

    Do you mean the tip or the peg rest? As I see from the second photo you posted, the peg is in a fixed position. I'm missing something?

    I have the rotate-able toe piece.

    What I'm talking about is the spread (called Q-factor on bicycles) between the pegs. With stock pegs and gripping the sides of the bike (I ride that way from horses) your boots are more inboard so the extension of the toe peg is enough. With the knight system you're forced to be outside of the drop portion which spreads your feet another inch on each side. I was looking at extending the shifter peg by drilling, tapping and adding a bolt but now I think I'll just get some aluminum straight pegs and see how they work.

    The same happens even with the Touratech pegs (the ones I've used until now).

    I think it depends also from how much "large" is your body. Or I'm wrong?
