The cotter pin was a challenge but the kits are well worth it and the rest of the assembly was a breeze. Really enjoying his kit!

Upjohn,

Thanks for the review.

Swedge,

The kit is a bolt-on affair and easily taken off to restore the bike to stock. It's a completely reversible modification.

Feel free to call me to discuss options if you like. I have the taller seat, raising link, foot peg lowering kit discussion several times a week. There are lot of things that can be done, most all of which are reversible.

It took me a very long time to figure out how to make a foot peg and control lowering kit. I literally thought about it for years and evaluated several possibilities before finding the optimum parameters of movement forward and down.

Unfortunately it takes minutes for any low life scum bag to purchase our kit using an assumed name and steal the design.

Based on feedback from customers and experience our kit was expanded to include parts for lengthening the gear shift linkage.

Buy it from a thief, or buy it from the guy who created it. It's your choice.

Yes, by someone who doesn't have the ability to figure it out themselves, has no honor, and is only interested in sales, sales, sales.

Another benefit of the lowering kit...

I purchased the lowering kit not so much for extra legroom (since I have a 32" inseam and highway pegs to stretch out on) but in order to get a good reach to my handlebars when standing on the pegs. I have bar risers and I've adjusted the handlebars but standing on the foot pegs I still had to either hunch over or squat too much to reach the handlebars. This made it difficult to ride standing for any period of time and to have good control of the bike. Rick's kit was a perfect fit, high quality product, with all of the necessary hardware, and great installation instructions.

Rick , installed the lowering kit last night in the garage. It was flooding at the house so no test ride. I could tell immediately sitting on the bike that it was going to be better for my long legs. And hopping up off the seat is easier. Rode to work this morning , and my 20 minute commute confirmed that this was a good decision. Nice product.

Lord , if I have to look like a Power Ranger , can it at least be Amy Jo Johnson?

We have the new peg and control lowering plates for the V2 in stock and ready to ship. Just select the proper model and year from the drop down menu.

The new plates (top) follow the front edge of the V2 frame more closely for a more purpose built look.
