Footpeg Lowering Kit
on: August 03, 2020, 10:04:08 AM
Thought I'd try my luck here given the Motorwerk ones attract postage costs almost as much as the kit!

I have a 2018 V1K.

Cheers

John

G'Day John,

Yes, motowerks pricey but worth it.

MFW might be worth a look- https://www.bike-design.com/en-gb/catalog/66/footrests?bmake=Kawasaki&bmodel=Versys%201000&byear=2018

Raising the seat cushion height could also be an option.
This is a bloody great Bike....!

I think part of the issue is I've just bought a Corbin seat which is a bit lower so raising isn't an option as I want to keep the seat.

I'll look at the one linked.. thanks.

Moterwerk ones may be worth it but $45 postage is far too much on a $50 item IMO. Add in import VAT and Post Office charges and the price is more than double the price of the pegs.

I had a downpipe and cat for my car custom made and shipped from the States and it cost $85, insured for $650 so I struggle to understand what makes up the $45.

I have put the Buell Ulysses pegs on several of my bike including now the V1000.
I dont know if Buell parts are available where you are, or perhaps you can find them used.
They used to be very cheap.

FWIW I also have a set of Motowerks from my Versys 650 but prefer the Buell pegs as I never trusted the Motowerks to stand on while riding.
The drop are similar, but the Buells do move the pegs back a little bit.
I prefer that set back, but some may not.
I did have to open up the mount hole(s) for the pin, but beyond that they fit right up.

Not the greatest shot of them.
