I'm 6'5'' and have a similar setup along with Pastrana FMX bend ProTaper bars and Pivot Pegs. As long as you're not feeling too much flex in that set up I say go for it.

Is this too much? Feels great when standing and riding and im happy with it, but how much is too much?



I am 6'4 and without them, they feel a little low.

Hey Craig,

They do tend to flex a little, but I think that is the nature of the bolt type fixture which the bars attach to the triple clam.

I suppose if it does not feel dangerous it should be fine. I might take out the touratech risers and see how it feels with just the Rox risers. Biggest issue I have is that the bars hit the Mra Vario screen on full lock and that is extremely annoying. I might opt for a kappa/givi screen which is narrower.

I managed to find some low peg and i've taken the touratech raisers out.

I took the bike for a quick ride this afternoon and im pretty chuffed. No more ape hangers :P



Im a bit bummed I had to replace my touratech pegs, but hey, they are just pegs :)

Can't make out any detail there. Care to do some more so I can see where/how it bolts on. Or is it not like that and simply fit onto the standard frame? Will my pivot pegs still work or a replacement for the normal pegs?

Hey Squily,

This is a completely new set of pegs. You would need to take yours off and mount these. These also do not pivot (bummer)

Simply pull out the split pin, take your old ones off and slot these on. Pretty quick job.

I am almost 100% they are Motobau :)
I have the same for 3 years now. They work very good for me because i am tall and i drive standing position mostly.
The only problem i see is when legs go very far out (very wide) - specially on right side peg.
I would love to find a solution to weld them closer to frame.

@ GPMucci: amazing job again....

Hi everyone,
After having spent long hours on this forum and especialy on this *thread *where i found superbe bikes, stories, nices parts that i could not afford ( may be one day ) i decided to post my Rd07a a bit modified, not too much but i am trying to give her a more agressive look and improve driving ( not done yet )
Some pictures:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/55169525@N00/7723900618/

I am still looping for new pegs, larger and lower as increasing height of handle bar is limited by lenght of cable.*

May fit a k&n air filter if someone proves me that it will improve a bit sensations. Same for iridium spark plugs.*

And one day if i keep the bike long enough ( i am still thinking at buying a 660 xtz 2012 and doing mods to make it looking as Dakar bike and this may be easier than on AT) and if i have the money , i may go for boano front and new fork and rear suspension.*
Who knows.....

I'm sure some of you also have the problem with your mirrors or front brake reservoir hitting your screen on semi to full turn? What's the best work around for this?

I have a vario touring screen.
