Increasing clearance between foot peg and seat

What's the best (and optimal) way to increase the clearance between the foot peg and seat (already an aftermarket) in 990 Adv?

a. even taller seat
b. 990 R rear shock
c. all of the above

Longer shock will make the ground further away, not your footpegs. Fastway's can be mounted 3/4" lower.
Big change? Yeah, even taller seat.

Based on the specifications of both bikes 990 Adv S & R, the difference in seat height is exactly the difference in rear suspension travel:

990 Adv S

rear suspension travel 210mm
seat height 860mm

990 Adv R

Rear suspension travel 265mm
seat height 915mm

I'm assuming that both bikes share the same frame and same seat, thus this extra 55mm (Adv R) comes from the rear shock, correct?

actually you are correct....


the ground clearance follows the rear suspension travel difference


990 Adv S

261mm


990 Adv R

316mm


55mm, thus the foot pegs - seat distance is the same on both bikes.

FastWay pegs, lower by 3/4" AND about 3/4" back. Both helps a lot.

Seat Concepts tall seat. Great foam, good shape, great cover. Cheap.

Easy to space up the bars too.

Hear hear

I lowered my pegs my self by cutting and adding a piece of 6 mm flat bar.
I made them 25 mm lower and added a M8 bolt thus making my own Pivot pegs for 15 Euro 'bout 18 of your stuff.
Very comfy and to top that a 25 mm Seat concept tall seat.
Very nice with a 37" inseam.
Done 30000 km so far in extreme comfort.

Pics please...I think I understand what you did with the 6mm flat bar, but not sure what you mean about the m8 bolt; an m8 bolt seems a bit puny for a guy with a 37" inseam.

Just as I suspected, that 8mm bolt wasn't strong enough and now Rattis is gone

Thumb Still alive

No brothers I haven't fallen off, but what I did do was that I fell on my job and shattered my kneecap.....
The bike is in Montevideo so pics are a problem.
This how I did it:
separate peg from mount, that part that swivels with a 1 mm cutting disc
weld a 25 by 6 mm flatbar to the "mount"
drill a 8mm hole in the remaining "peg"
drill a hole in the flat bar at the height you want your peg to be.
Trim away reamaining pieces of the flat bar but let enough remain so you can weld little stops to the pegs from swivelling to much.
I did about 20 degrees or so.
Put and 8 mm bolt through and LOCTITE the nut DAMHIK.
Bob's your uncle
