    Lowered footpegs

    Hi all, I've just bought a 2016 RR but am going to need to lower the footpegs as I've recently had a couple of hip surgeries. Can any of you recommend a set of pegs that offer a range of positions lower than stock?

    I've already been doing a lot of reading on the forum and some frequent names are popping up (Gia Moto, Gilles etc) but most websites talk about the height increases available and not the drop.

    Any help would be appreciated. Picking up the bike next week and am super excited.

    If you are not too short, there is a tall comfort seat option.

    Most adjustable rearsets (i.e. from HP/Gilles) will lower the pegs.

    If you decide on a comfort seat, I have one available.

    It does make the seat height about 25mm taller.

    Gilles do peg extenders but the problem is the levers stay in the same place. Much better off getting rear sets as Alex suggests. GiaMoto donít advertise their comfort kit, but will sell you one if you ring them. The comfort kit adds an extra 15mm to the 10mm their rearsets already provide.

    Hi matey. My RR has the alpha racing rearsets and I'm 6'6 with 36' inside leg and these make it so much comfier. Plus I've got a w*nky hip, and they don't cause me any grief.
    I don't know where you're based, but if you're anywhere near Norwich you're more than welcome to pop in and come and try mine for size.
    Or if you're coming to any of the BMW club trackdays i'll be at those too.

    Re: Lowered footpegs

    Thanks for the info guys, this has been really helpful. I'll probably buy a rearset and then see how I feel about seat height. I'm only 5'8" so don't want to change the seat without trying other options first.

    @Tim, I'm some distance away from Norwich but appreciate your offer. I've not done any bike trackdays before but am keen to try one out before I'm past it. I'll be checking out the BMW club as it sounds like somewhere to mix with similarly minded enthusiasts.

    Re: Lowered footpegs

    The seat is worth it. Combined with rearsets you can lower the peg height too.
    Iím 6Ē2 and commute on mine. Needs the seat and rearsets though

    Re: Lowered footpegs

    By coincidence , I've just taken delivery of a set of the adjustable Gillies footpegs:

    I'm afraid my aging bones are not quite as flexible as they once were! I haven't had the chance to try them yet, but I think the should be OK height for height.

    I'll keep you posted.

    Hi Gixxer, do you not find that the increased sat height puts more pressure on your wrists? One of my concerns would be that the raised seat would pitch the rider forward a lot more? Unless you've also got raised bars?

    Is that just a footpeg rather than a complete rearset? I couldn't see these on the Gillies website; any chance you could provide a link?

    Thanks.
