No spare parts but something exists already. Might have been from wonderlich. I looked at a set so the neice and nephew could ride with me. I looked at them but didnt buy so no idea how great they work. Seems like there were 2 options actually, one that was in effect a redesigned set of pegs and one that was basically just a block that attached like your existing peg with the ability to reattach your peg to the top of the block.

Re: PASSENGER REAR SET RISERS

Ilium Works makes a set of adjustable passenger risers. My wife had a similar problem with short legs. These risers solved the problem.

Re: PASSENGER REAR SET RISERS

My wife has the opposite problem. Legs are long..Giraffe legs. So i ran across a deal on factory BMW passenger floorboards that are adjustable up and down. Adjusted all the way down and it's just enough. But the adjustment for upward is alot. Anyway. Thats an option finding them used. But they are really pricey. Wonderlich i believe has a set also. Go to beemer boneyard and look for them used

Re: PASSENGER REAR SET RISERS

i just machined up a set of riser blocks today
will test them out and see how it goes
all i could find were sets in the $ 500.00 Range and only moved the pedal up 2" and i need 3-3 1/2
so off I went into the corner and put the milling machine to work

thanks Richard

Just wondering, what you got for a mill? I have a single J Bridgeport.
