Want to lower pegs

I have a Sargent seat on order, should get here the day after leave for a week long trip, that's helpful. Anyway, I'm considering lowering the pegs and went to the Pirates Lair, is it just me or is that site just about impossible to navigate? Couldn't find anything unless it was on the front page, the pegs and Remus cans were not. Any good sources for a lowering kit?

Thanks, that's it, I bookmarked it. When I get back from Taos I'll be ready to make a move on the pegs

I just picked up a used '06 GT that had the foot pegs lowerd and I couldn't understand why my foot dragged on the rear brake, and I could NEVER find neutral. I yanked those things off the first day, and yes, my legs are up higher, but I can actually ride the thing now!

I've broken my left ankle twice, motorcycle mishaps, as a result, I can't extend my ankle as well as I could a few years ago, having the pegs lower in my case I think would be a plus as it should help be get my toe under the shifter. But, that isn't the only reason.. I'm also putting a Sargent seat on the bike and this seat is a tad lower than the stock seat. If I'm wrong, I can do as you did and just take them back off. I think it is worth a try.

My left ankle is fused and over the years has developed more range of movement. It's been work, and at times painful, but I've done it.

What was that middle thang?

I sympathize, it does create a few shifting problems and how you "rest" your foot on the peg. But, the problem is not insurmountable.
