PostSubject: Lowering of pillion pegs   Tue Aug 04, 2015 3:39 am

During a ride around the New Forest on Sunday my wife complained of knee pain while riding pillion on the GRiSO.
My question is have any of you guys lowered the pillion pegs on the your GRiSO? If so what did you do? Purchace a kit or go the home made route?

The vario adjustables are looking favorite at the moment. Initially I( thought they were a little expensive but I suppose there's a fair bit of machining work gone into them.

Here's what I did on the Bella...  Different muffler on the other side gave more clearance, mind. Might give you an idea.

Nice job!

I've not welded for over 25 years and the peg hangers are alloy so I wouldn't want to attempt it myself, however I'd be interested to hear if your pillion passenger found the erelocated pegs more comfortable?

Haha. She's still complaining. Now the seats too hard. Rolling Eyes I confess I paid for the footpeg mods. Didn't do them myself. But more to the point I remember another thread elsewhere, and these look good too.

That might be the best option?

There is the post on my rear pegs.

Any fab shop should be able to make them, and yes they make a difference.
