Has anyone seen a kit to lower the driver's footpegs on the 1800? This would include lowering the brake and shifter. Don

Nadda, That's why you see so many highway pegs and altered seats.

I would advise you not to do it. Lower the seat instead.

But, the canyon carving won't be fun anymore. They grind on pavement as it is.

The foot peg lowering Kit Ciaran refer es to are herehttp://www.cyclemaxohio.com/inc/sdetail/1235 , i used these ,untill i hit a corner to fast and sheared one off,,,but i fixed mine to the stock cast mounting,,you would be better offwith the chrome mounting that matches up,,,there very very comfortable,but you do have to alter your riding style to allow for the drop in height of the pegs,,also theres no need to lower the brake and gear leavers,,just spin them round a little on the splined shaft and there fine,,,good luck,,,,,pp

That is exactly what I was looking for. Does the heavy duty mounting bracket come with it or did you buy that extra? Is there an issue with having your feet 1 inch wider and 1 inch forward? I always feel I am leaning backwards and thought lower pegs might help. I never scrape the pegs but I do touch my toe to the ground every once in a while. Thanks again, this place is the greatest. Don.

Kuryakyn did make a chrome footpeg for the gl1500 and it was about 1/2" lower. I have a set but I am not sure if they make them now.
