Cut

The pegs on the GSA are made of stainless steel that's perfectly weldable.
Cut them insert a bit of stainless flat bar and weld them back up.
TIG or stainless rods, dead easy and cheap.
It works, I lowered mine and made them pivotable as well.
Mine a re lowered about 35 mm or so.
A big difference in knee angle.

I have the Fastway pegs from my 08 GS on the new LC. I had a shop cut the length of the shaft to fit my Explorer but they work just fine on the new LC.

I have Fastway pegs on my 2005 and they have been good at half the price, and are somewhere around .75" lower than stock when you flip the bushing. Am unsure of their fitment to the W, but will be looking into it.

I have the same question on these BMW pegs.........the BMW literature says the lowest position is equivelent in height to the stock pegs, but your pictures and post would indicate that this is definately not the case.......????? Could you clarify what you have found with the BMW pegs -- are they really lower than stock???? Also when you put lower pegs on will you be more inclined to bump the kickstand protrusion since the kickstand fits just below the stock pegs??

You can pull up your specific bike and use the modification button to calculate changes in ergonomics here:
