Motorcycle Larry's footpeg lowering brackets

Has anybody here used Motorcycle Larry's footpeg lowering brackets? I bought a pair but the motocycle shop said be careful since my feet may drag when cornering. The guy basically advised against it.

My ABS V-Strom only has 200 miles on it so I have not pushed it yet to find out. I am concerned that my feet may hit also when cornering, but it may also be an illusion since my seat is so much higher then my old motocycle.

Let me know your thoughts. Thanks.

It depends on how hard you corner. I made boot contact once in the few months I hade them on. My difficulty was the pegs being outboard a bit more which necessitated twisting my feet inward more to use the controls. Be aware the shift and brake levers need to be lowered for best performance. The shifter is easy but the brake lever will take some machine work.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Thumbs up They work fine with a little tweakin'

I've been running them for about a month now and really like what they've done for my knees. Yes, the clutch is an easy adjustment and the brake pedal can be a pain. Make sure you don't adjust the brake rod too far in order to get the pedal low enough ..you'll have a hot brake light if'n you do. My biggest problem was getting the return springs snug enough to keep downward pressure on the pedals themselves at speed.
I have scrubbed the feelers once on the footrests in each direction just to learn the limits. The footrests fold up nicely with no worries at all as far as loosing control. I like 'em a lot and along with the higher Suzuki Touring seat in place my legs and feet are really happy now.

Thanks for the warning about overheating the brakes. I have been looking the brake level over to figure out how to lower it. I think I would have screwed it up.

I am still a little bit undecided since I find riding to be very comfortable after putting on an Alaskan wool cover and these extenders. However my Harley friends have talked up highway pegs as the only way to go. I should take their motorcycles out for a spin now that I have gotten back into riding for a while and see what I think of highway pegs.

How do I go about buying a set of these brackets? They sound like just what I've been looking for.
