Passenger pegs

I am looking to reposition the pass. pegs of my Vee2. I am not having any luck finding anything. Any suggestions? She says her knees get sore on a longer ride.

Yes, my wife says teh same thing and has been after me to finish our passenger peg lowering kit. In the mean time there are some available and discussed somewhere on this site.

Edit: Sometimes when you think about something long enough you can come up with an easier/less expensive way to do things. This just became my next project.

Well, the rest of your stuff is fantastic that I have used. So if you want a Guinea Pig I would be happy to help with R&D.

The problem with really simple solutions is that you have to go through a bunch of complicated thought to get to them. I have found that the simple solution usually lies on the other side of throwing out a bunch of pre-conceived notions and limitations you thought were unavoidable. It was that way with my footpeg and control lowering kit. All the previous solutions tried to solve the problem within the obvious limitations. Eliminating the limitations allowed the solution to reveal itself. Same with this problem.

I'm so stinking excited about this I have already ordered the materials. Expect photos in about a week.

No beta tester needed since I own a Vee2, but you can have production model number 1.

How much lower does you're wife want? The simplest approach moves the peg location down and forward in line with the opening of the passenger peg mount, but other options are possible.

Maybe you can add a less expensive folding shifter, and a folding brake pedal to your selection Rick? That Touratech one is nice but way over priced IMO.

I would be interested in very simple solution something like universal attachable folding tip. This would require grinding/cutting off OEM tip prior attaching aftermarket one, but would work on any bike and that way you can adjust shifter length too.

That's generally about it. Otherwise there could be passenger and rider interference.
