Ordered the KD pegs a few days ago and they arrived yesterday.  I thought the black anodized pegs would look good as most the bike is painted black.  They do look good.   Thumbs Up

Looks great! Love the new red devil paint too! Are those pegs the 1" drop? How do they feel vs. stock? I'm debating whether to get the 1" or 2" drop.

Don't go 2 inch if you ride the twisties. They even scrape in town.


CPB, they look good!

They are the 1" drop. Amazing how much more comfortable my knees are with a mere 1" extra room. To be honest, I was not exactly uncomfortable with the stock pegs, but I am liking the drop.

The 2" drop would be too much.

Those look fantastic! I would like to find another peg that has more grap to it as the stock is kind of slick with my mesh riding boots. Black would be cool. Being 5'8" this GRiSO fits me like a glove so I don't really need to lower them.

The Knight Design footpegs have the grip (grap?) in the design known as
Quadtrax.
They also make them in stock height/length.
Best you check their website. Hope this helps.

I have the 1" lowered and love them as well. The black looks cool on your bike too!
The 2" makes shifting awkward, I've been told.

I also have 1" lower Knight Design pegs with the "Quadtrax tread" and like them alot. In silver; black looks great! The red color and matching stitching on the black seat looks fantastic. This coming from a Tenni green SE GRiSO owner. :-)

In all these peg dropping scenarios, what happens with toe to gear/brake lever position?
Photos of above tangerine GRiSO make my right ankle ache, just looking at it.

I couldn't deal with the 2 inch drop for those reasons as well ^^^^^^^^^^.
Not to mention the scrapping due to reduced lean angle...

Wayne, not too bad if you have a big hoofer. I tapped the 5mm hole in the toe peg and added about 12mm via threaded rod and dome nut. I also pulled the original fat rubber off and used some thinner rubber to reduce the overall thickness of the toe peg. No awkward ankle angles or searching with foot.


With the 2 inch pegs, you are screwed. You have to add the adjustable KD toe pegs unless you have klown feet. Then, let the scraping begin!

Gear shift spacing is fine. However, the brake pedal is a bit higher now than I'd like. Still easily reachable, but a bit more of a stretch.

Same here with 1'" drop. Is there any adjustment to be had via the threaded rod connecting the brake lever? DW
