I've just fitted these to my 04 Wee and they make it so much more comfortable for my ageing creaky knees. Just a couple of minor suggestions: I was a little confused at first and tried to fit the gearchange side on the brake pedal - quickly noted and easily fixed, but a marking on the inside might help.... And it would be nice to have the instructions included rather than having to print them out.

A very nicely made product which fits with no trouble at all and no bodging required.

Shipping to the UK is quite pricey but that isn't Rick's fault. The kit arrived just over a week after I ordered it, which is pretty good going in my book.

Well done Rick.

Question about the peg lowerers: I have a centerstand and note that the peg feeler on the left is longer than on the right (and notice that it touches down sooner). If I were to install the peg lowering kit, then I assume I could go back to regular length feelers because I would still be touching down - roughly - before the centerstand lever. So... does all this mean I could lower my pegs with no loss of lean angle, at least to the left?

Peg lowering Kit

I installed one of Richland Ricks peg lowering kits. Installation went well and a well made product, fit & finish excellent. I did have to adjust my brake lever ( we all have ours where we want it anyways ) when I was done. Take the time to watch his video on line for the instructions as it will answer your questions and save you some grief.

I couldn't believe a one inch drop would make that much difference on the knee angle. As neither of the stroms have adjustable seats for height, this is the only way we have to change the amount of knee bend.

He has lots of other neat stuff for these bikes.

The only safe way to answer you question is to get a few of your buddies around and lean the bike over as far as it will go on both sides. Make sure you are sitting on the bike, and all the preload is off the rear shock, to try and simulate ridding conditions. Do it before and after the installation and with bags etc on the bike to see what touches down first.

My guess is that it will lessen the lean angle somewhat but as the peg is designed to bend up, not really an issue.

If you don't mind the stock riding position of the bike and your knees aren't bothered by the stock peg location then I would leave well enough alone. Any change to the bike involves compromise.
