New to me vstrom 650

Hello community
I just picked up a used 2017 vstrom 650. I was lucky enough that the pervious owner already added many fargles and such. I am hoping to learn more about this amazing motorcycle from this forum. For one, could anyone recommend a footpeg lowering kit?

I put this one on my own 2017 XT 650. It was an easy install following along with his video instructions.

Welcome bcpolaris!

I installed two sets of Adventuretech foot peg lowering kits on mine and my sons first gen 650's. Great product and easy to install if you follow their excellent instructions. I assume its a similar install with the 2017 650's.
