Bought an unregistered 650R(so I was told)and checked the VIN on eNatis-turns out it still has valid registration papers of the previous,previous owner who seems to be paying the licence every year despite having sold the bike.He,at first said he will sign the transfer and send the papers and then disapeared.It seems that someone is using "my" bikes plate and licence disc on another bike.
Total ballsup and reinforces the importance of checking everything before buying or selling.

Hi Richard
Just fitted the lowered pegs you supplied.They have made a big difference in my sitting and standing position,taking into account my 2,0m length.
Only snag is that I struggle to find the back brake,maybe you have a suggestion to bring that closer/more in line to the peg.

Not sure how to you need to be to need lowered foot pegs, I am 1.82 and have no issue on either and L or and R had to put some spacers and new bars though.

Add 20cm+ to your height and then you will understand the problem-bar raisers are not a solution-too high and serious handling issues occur.

Ok with you just another question have you tried a different bend on the bars, can't tell you what a big difference changing the bars made for me more so than the risers
Use a Renthall Fat Bar RC High-made an enormous difference but just looking for an extra 20-25mm on the pegs

Lowering the pegs will most probably mess up the gear changing ability as well as the rear brake Hardy...... just keep that in mind......
Better than removing 6" of my legs :)Tall okes will do anything to improve riding position.

Does anyone know if there is an adapter bracket or specially designed peg that will lower the pegs an inch or so.
Long legs and the stock height on these pegs do not gel.

Thanks
For what bike are you looking for?Have been searching for lower pegs for my XR650R's

An extra 10kg fully fuelled compared to original tank,normal day trip in my area(Cedarberg)is about 350km,not possible with original tank.I have seen bikers who carry an extra 20kg just in their beer bellys,never heard them complain of extra weight on their bikes  :)

Try and get hold of Clark tanks-bikes still keep their original lines

The Renthall Fatbar RC High will give you extra height without moving weight backwards
