For the same price, I would highly recommend Adventure Tech's foot peg lowering kit.

They look fragile and you better have really stiff soled boots for a peg like that. As mentioned above, Adventure techs work great, they move the controls too, and I can tell you for a fact that they can handle having a loaded bike dropped on them. Both sides!

+1 for Footpeg and Control Lowering Kit - AdventureTech, LLC. I broke my leg years ago and after awhile riding I would get an pains in my hip and knee. After I installed Ricks lowering kit I can now ride for a lot longer without any pain. That sounds like an add. LOL. Another plus it is really easy to fit even for somebody like me who has three left hands.

You can get pegs that will lower your foot position even after installing the kit but lowering the controls is the iffy part. Nothing else out there lowers the controls more.

+1 for this kit.
Just did the new additional mode of moving the shifter for my size 13 on my 650.
Liked so much just ordered another for my 1000.

I did the SW Motech pegs which give a hair more drop.
Works well with the control lowering kit and shifter relocator.
