Peg Lowers

I have wanted to drop my pegs for awhile. $200 for 2 lil plates with holes seemed too high!
( If they are ever in stock) I looked on Ebay and bid on 2 sets, and stopped at $160.
So I made my own. Installed today and like the Lil Bear said," they are just right!"
1/2" 6061 alloy and 3- 8mmx1.25 screws will be plenty strong.

Nice job!

But how have you got on with the foot brake pedal/master cylinder, the gear shift and the rear brake microswitch?

Re:

On the right side plate, everything that moves is on the original peg holder, the switch and the brake lever is bolted to it, there are no changes at all on that side.
On the left plate, the shift lever has 2 different positons for a little adjustment. Now the shifter is a tad high. I rode it and can use it ok, but, I might make a piece 3/4" long to drop it a small bit.
Look at the pics, all the adapter plates really do, is lower your bolt holes!

Ah yes I see that now.

Have you still got the peg feelers fitted?

Not right now, they seem to have been absent when I purchased the bike.
Why, who knows? Both vibrated out, to lighten the bike!!!!, or they may have been scrapped real good and the sellar didn't want anyone to know he stretched the bike out!
It's like the owner's manuel and the tool kit, just missing in action.

Does anyone have a pair of feelers for sale?

I kinda mentioned the feelers tongue-in-cheek because you had lowered,

You can guess the next question when riding two up, with touring bags full!

I know the next question, and thought maybe thread some pieces of alum rod and go to the rodeo parking lot and see how much room I have. Maybe some 1",2",3", and narrow it down a little.
I got the shifter extender made today, the same length as the peg drop. It works pretty good. This is my 1st set and kinda rough, just to see if it's gonna work OK. I may make another set and spend some time smoothing and polishing. When you're retired you can spend lots of time on projects, especielly when it's 100* outside after noon.

Yes, I do the same. Time doesn't have to be 'cost effective' and set by targets anymore.

Your drop plates look pretty similar to some commercial one's I've seen and you didn't have to pay the 'farkle' cost!

I did something similar on the rear drive tension strut. Hated the rusty pieces of pressed tin supplied by BMW, didn't like the cost of the 'billet' aftermarket with fancy anodised parts. So just fabricated it from flat polished stainless plate with a couple of spacers. No rust and looks techno like the rest of the bike.
