Rick, I'm 5.11 tall and 400 lbs and 12.5 shoe size.
my Vstrom 1000 (DL1000) 2003 footpegs were a little high for my size and also the gear shifting lever was uncomfortable (to close), but after installing the Footpeg and Control w/ GEAR SHIFT RELOCATION / EXTENSION from Adventure Tech the riding experience is 100% better, I can ride it for hours now.
The installation process wasn't hard and the instructions were perfect, I will recommend it 100% to any big guy with big shoe size.
Construction is very professional and feels durable, and instructions are very well made, fail-proof.
Jose F Puerta.
