Suburban Machinery Peg Relo Kit

I see that suburban machinery finally has a peg relo kit for both the GT and the GTL. I have had them in the past for both my k12 and my LT and they worked great. I was wondering if any one has ordered them for their GT or GTL yet and if so what do they think?

Re: Suburban Machinery Peg Relo Kit

I have a set on my K1600GTL and like um about 95% of the time.... The only problem is that it makes the rear brake a little challenging to use. I don't the rear brake much so for me it isn't a problem. It's easy to adjust the shifter.

I've thought about a different seat and if I go in that direction, I might sell the peg re-locator, but haven't moved in that direction yet.

I am also scraping the pegs a little more than on my K1200LT. The K1600GTL simply wants to lean more.....

Dan! I haven't looked yet, but is there any way to adjust the position of the rear brake lever.

I'm not aware of any way way to adjust it.

There is a company that made a lever for the K1200LT's rear brake, but I don't think that they have made one for the K1600GTL, yet.

If it helps, the company is Ilium Works and their K1200LT brake lever is here.

Re: Suburban Machinery Peg Relo Kit

I have them as well. They help a bit with knee strain in my case. I haven't had issue with the rear brake lever, but I'm finding difficulty with the shift lever being too high (and it's adjusted to it's lowest posiiton).

Hope this helps...

There is at least an inch of adjustment on the shifter arm. The adjustment is made on the 8" arm inside the plastic.

I got an email from Ilium Works reference to the brake lever replacement and they are aware of the need and will email me if they decide to build one. The did one for the K1200LT and it took care of the rear brake placement with the Suburban lower peg.

I don't use my rear brake very often and after the Suburban modification to my K1200LT, I didn't bother with the Illium brake pedal. If there is enough interest, my guess is that the company will speed up the new product.

Anyone wanting the modified pedal:

E-mail the company with your request
