passenger foot peg lowering brackets
I met a fellow that has started making foot peg lowering brackets for the passenger.
The chief complaint of the lady that used to ride with me on the Vee was, "This thing hurts my knees."
Had the foot pegs been lower I may not now own a GL1800.
I recently bought an L2V and my lady friend hasn't ridden on it yet, but my guess is that the same issue will exist.
I have purchased a set of these brackets in anticipation of that.
The brackets that I bought will not fit on the DL1000, but I'm going to work with the guy to build a set for that bike, too.
On the DL650, they fit nicely in place of the stock pegs and pin back on with the stock peg pin. The peg then gets relocated to the bracket and uses the new, supplied pin, to hold in place.
The pegs will still fold up, but the brackets will not fold up.
I plan on taking the lady for a ride this weekend. Both with the lowering brackets and without and getting her feedback.
I'll post feedback and photos then.
L2V -- she's a stocker!...and gone...
