adjustable foot pegs

Just spied these on ebay AUSTRALIA...
Might be a simple way of dropping the pegs, moving em forward or back.

Not sure how strong and stable they'd be.
Made of Aluminium...

I'm tempted to grab some and try them out. Anyone used them, or something similar?

The hard part will be having the foot controls line up correctly with wherever you set up the foot pegs. Probably easier to just pick up the control kit from Rick at adventuretech.

Yeah, considered those but would be stuck with the standard road pegs... Most of my riding is off road and I really need the more aggressive off road pegs.
Those rubberised OEMs are sketchy at best, when wet and muddy.

Unless there is some kind of pins to lock them in various positions, it looks like it would just be the one bolt holding them in position?? There is no way that would hold. The first bump or rut you hit standing on the pegs and it would drop down into the lowest position. Unless I'm missing something.

They sure look sharp though

I have a set of these with 25mm of adjustment instead of 40mm. They are sturdy and very well made items. Excellent value. Just make sure to use some medium Loctite on the bolts once you have them set to your liking, as the instructions state. One of my pegs was a bit loose before I used Loctite on them.
Off-road I find they give a much better platform for the feet when standing and excellent grip for my boots.
They also work better for road use as the larger size means I can move my feet around more than the stock pegs. Having the pegs a bit lower than stock increases my comfort during long rides by reducing knee bend. I haven't noticed any additional vibration by not having rubber covered pegs.
The adjustable section does force my feet into a slightly wider position than the stock pegs, but I quickly got used to it. It is only about 10mm extra width and doesn't affected gear changing or braking. I suppose a better solution would be to use Richland Ricks peg lowering brackets with these pegs without their adjustable parts.
Despite being slightly wider and probably 30mm lower overall, I still haven't scraped them when cornering, whereas the feelers on the stock pegs would often scrape.

There are movable pins in each end of the lowering section that allow for a wide range of adjustment in the pegs. I have been using my set for 12 months/10,000 kms now and they still solid and working great.

Thanks for the great feedback...

I've got a set of the KLR dirt bike ones but they sit up too high for me.
I think the 25mm extension would be perfect, Will see if I can track some down.

Can't argue with the pegs being inferior...so I upgraded them.

This general type of solution has been around a long, long time. It has always generally been criticized for the awkward reach its leaves to the controls after moving only the pegs. That, and the tight bend at the knee in stock form, was the impetus for the foot peg and control lowering kit.

That later grew into the foot peg and control lowering kit with gear shift relocation. Both work with any peg that can be fitted to the bike, but most people just install the kit withe the stock pegs.

We can usually fit multiple items in the same package for the basic shipping charge. So look around the site.

Or, grab a bunch of friends and make a large order all at once to save on shipping. If you want so many we have to use a larger box I'll cover the extra shipping.

Thanks for the review and advice Stu... Got a set of 25mm ones on the way and will set em up for full extension, straight down, similar to you.
I found the original setup fine for road boots, but hopeless with off-road boots.
The off-road boots make it even more cramped for my worn out hips and knees.

I've already lengthened the gear shift by 25 mm and adjusted it higher to accommodate the off-road boots. I wear size 12 boots, "13 US"...

Will probably just have to wind the gear shifter down slightly to match the new pegs.
