Red face Gear Shift Extension/Relocation Without Lowering Footpegs

I had a little epiphany the other day while corresponding with a customer. I realized that some of the limitation present with the footpeg and control lowering kit would not be present without lowering the pegs.

So...... I am working on an inexpensive gear shift relocation kit with a target range of as a little as 3/4" forward to as much as anybody would want.

Target price $35.

As per the case with most of the solutions the production volume will be low and patents will therefore not be a viable option. So please support the SV Racing Boycott to in turn support this kind of development activity.

The parts should be ready this week.

I will be needing some beta testers for this project. Must live in the US or be willing to pay for shipping. Must understand the work involved in developing these kinds of solution needs to be protected from poachers by supporting the Boycott of Sv Racing who steals final designs, copies them, and puts his own name on them.

Hi Rick, I have your footpeg lowering kit with the gearshift extender on my 07 DL650. I find the extender a little too long for my size 12 shoes and the stock length a little too short. Am I a candidate for beta testing?
The lower peg height is perfect.

Hi Rick, I am a big fan of your products and could definitely use some more space for the shifter while keeping the pegs where they are. I'd be happy to help with your testing.

The new kit can not be used with the foot peg and control lowering kit. The choices are going to be....

New gear shift relocation. Minimum gear shift move forward 3/4".

Foot peg and control lowering kit (without gear shift relocation).

Foot peg and control lowering kit with gear shift relocation. Minimum gear shift move forward 1.35".

.... and of course our retro fit kit if you all ready have the foot peg and control lowering kit.



Support new solutions. Boycott SV Racing.

Hi Rick, got a new 650 v strom xt. Nice! Plus own a 7 year old bandit 1250. Bought the lowering kit and works great. Need the gearshift relocation as I've fitted pivot pegz and gearshift is way too close for my aussie size eleven feet.
I would need either the retro kit or happy to trial another gear relocation setup.

John,

The new kit will be designed to work without the lowering kit, so it sounds like you need a retrofit kit.

Thanks for the support

Thanks everyone. Just got back from a mini-vacation. My wife loves the beach and she deserved the time off. I should get beta test versions done before next week.

I have a mock up that works on the Vee2. It's a very comfortable move somewhere between 3/4" and 1" forward. I like it.

Will be contacting the volunteers to try it on the other models.
