Perfect on 2014 DL1000

AdventureTech order was very smooth, shipment quick, packaged nicely ... just as you expect! Took less than 30min to install (well, I did watch the video twice!), and worked just as installed, no tweaks required to anything.

Ahhh - footrest position is so much better, much less cramped; I came from 2005 DL650 and do believe the stock 2014 DL1000 (with normal seat) had a more compact riding position; knees bent more. Got my big boy riding position back

Really, it seems that most riders would benefit from this, regardless of inseam (mine is 32).

Regards,
Mike

Yep, it's a very nice setup. I have the peg relocation kit. I added some OEM GL1800 Goldwing pegs to mine, really adds comfort and room for my size 14 feet. I drag my toes occasionally, but less than expected with my big feet. I can still lean over all the way to the rear tire's tread edge without any problems if I remember to position my feet right.

Iíve been buying Rickís practical gear for years. Iíve had my vintage 08 Wee in both North America and Brazil and Rick has always gotten parts to me fast and efficiently. Now that Iím serving in Asia my bike has been in storage for two years. My last farkle was Ricks footpeg lowering kit. This year in preparation for a three week trip through the PNW I got new Gaerne ADV boots. I noticed I could not get my toe under the shifter with the new boots. I emailed Rick on a Wednesday, and by gosh he had the shifter adjuster to me in three days flat here in California! Install was super easy and we left on time at 0600 on a Monday. Trip, boots and bike have been a dream so far. Thank you Rick, not only for your ingenuity but your devotion to customer service.

Got my kit today and installed it. Pretty easy. One question, any recommendations on how much to remove from the stock peg draggers? With the pegs in the stock location I've used the draggers a few times, so it is good to have them at the right length especially on the left side due to the centerstand.

Just take them off. That's what I did. I think they were thought up by a lawyer.

On most bikes they are the warning before you send the bike skipping into the ditch.

Not really. At least not for me. They might have been a warning before wearing down my boot a little or jumping at the sudden realization I should have had the bike ore upright and my butt off the seat.

Hi. Quick question. Is there something to extend/relocate the rear brake lever on my 2014 1000? My right foot sits at an odd angle and constantly rubs against the brake lever. I now have a worn place on my boot which is extremely annoying. Anyway, I see there is a footpeg and control lowering kit. Will this allow me to have my foot in the correct position so I'm not further damaging my boots? I wear a size 15 boot if that information is of any use. The peg height has never seemed cramped to me and my 34" inseam but if I can stop scuffing my boots then I have no problem lowering the pegs. Thanks!

Hi jwumpus,

I don't know if yours is the same as my 2002. I have a "lever" similar to the shifter rather than a "pedal" as on my Trophy. If 'twas me I'd try cutting a centimeter off the end of the lever and filing/grinding a nice, smooth round end on it. That would still leave plenty of lever for the ball of your foot to press on and either eliminate or greatly reduce the contact pressure on the side of your boot.

Cheers,
Glenn

jwumpus,

I think (?) you may get some relief with the foot peg and control lowering kit just based on the more relaxed geometry. Your knee and ankle will be more relaxed. Thereby possibly reducing that foot rubbing against stuff. I don't know for sure that it will, but you can simulate the effect siting in your chair right now. Slide your right butt cheek off the side of your chair and lift the leg up simulating the bend at the ankle as if it were on an ever increasingly high foot peg. The more you raise it, the tighter the angle bends. As you move down the ankle relaxes.

It might not fix your situation, I really don't know, but it seems logical that it would help (at least some).
