Lower Passenger Footpegs

I have searched the forum and found nothing about lowering passenger foot pegs. A few good options for raising them but nothing about lowering. My wife has long legs and would like to explore the possibilities of lower foot pegs. Currently I have the BMW adjustable floor boards but they are essentially the same height as stock.

Any ideas?

Re: Lower Passenger Footpegs

I have the same problem. I have a set of whateverthehellthey'recalled that raise the pass pegs, so I installed them upside down. In that fashion, the pass pegs hit the centerstand - or at least the part of it that you step down on. I considered cutting and/or bending that, but got a little concerned that I'd screw it up irrepairly. As an alternative I just got her a set of boards, which she finds more comfortable.
Another alternative might be changing to a power centerstand, but I don't want to mess with it, or even lose what clearance I have.
Last resort, pull the center stand altogether, but not sure that's the smartest move I could make.
I still may play with bending the original, as finding another shouldn't be a huge problem.
If you find a solution, let me know, I'm still interested.

If you can't lower the pegs how about rising the seat. Now that will make the handling different and the bike even more top heavy.

I could play with women or with cars, I find cars are cheaper and you can write a book about cars a guy would understand.

Re: Lower Passenger Footpegs

We are in the process of getting a Russell seat plus I don't think spousal unit would appreciate more airflow. Tough enough now to get her on long rides.

I will keep looking....it would appear that I am not the only one with this issue.
