I use the 30mm Vario pegs, they make for a more comfortable rising position for my 33" legs.
Also there are no ground clearance issues with them.

I have just ordered a set of these because the brake lever was a bit too high with the Varios fitted.

Bump.  I bought my GRiSO 8V SE, and rode her the 200 miles home.  At 1.89m (6’ 2”) I’m seriously short of legroom, and had a cramped journey.  
I’ve started by ordering the Vario 30mm Adjustable Front pegs from M&P @ £90 via eBay.  
Next is to raise the seat height.  My options here seem to be a replacement ‘Gunfighter’ seat from Corbin Europe (in the UK).  Their price is an eye watering £756, without making any change to seat height.
I note in pics that Beetle has a Corbin Gunfighter on his GRiSO, likewise on the green GRiSO in the images. I’ll search for feedback on those.
Another option would be to have the stock seat rebuilt by an upholsterer ??

In my searches I came across the KC34 website with lots of Guzzi bling. One part that particularly caught my eye was their ‘Adjustable Moto Guzzi GRiSO Footpegs’ machined from billet. Very nice, but… €490!
Got me thinking whether such a plate could be fabricated, there many engineering workshops around here. Hmmm 🤔

Hi Bob - I too am 6'2" and spent a fair amount of time and effort getting my GRiSO to fit me.
I went with 1" knight design lowering pegs, Rox 2" risers on the handle bars and rotated the bars. Consequently, I had to replace the front brake lines- Spiegler helped on those
I got the Corbin seat and due to my bony ass, (others have not had issues with theirs) the edge of the corbin was putting a lot of uncomfortable pressure on my legs. fixed that with an Airhawk pad .
all is good now

They look really good, and an option for my size 14 feet 😆

Thanks Chris  Very Happy   Did you stick with the stock seat height?  or did Corbin raise their seat with more foam?  Being in the States, do Corbin offer a personalisation service?
The stock seat feels wide, perhaps consideration to altering the seat’s profile?  Not that I know how to go about that 😆

I’ve had a Ducati Diavel Carbon, which was also very low. By fitting Ducati’s Touring seat, it raises the rider by 40mm, and does away with the slope to crush your nuts on the tank 😂
