Peg help now complete - Thanks Everyone.

Alright,
I am offically out of ideas. TouraTech claims to have a kit to lower the pegs on my 1100GS to 4 different positions. However, it has been hell trying to order as they have no idea when and where this part is. I need to either lower the pegs or extend the shift lever to allow my M/X boots to fit under the lever.

I would like to have the work down before the Naches run - so I decided to post here instead of the equipment forum.

HELP.

Enjoy

Stosh


I have more than enough info now to make a decision (IMHO) on what to do.

I REALLY APPRECIATE ALL THE SUPPORT.

Enjoy

The people at Touratech don't know were the part is like they have none in stock? If your looking for stuff in stock have you checked with Ride West? I know you don't really want to talk to them but they may have them on the shelf. You could call South Sound BMW and ask for Wayne he used to be the Touratch guy for ride west (now he is sales manager for them) and maybe he could help you out with any Touratech stuff.

Wayne's a good bloke. I bought my GSA off him and he wasnt bad to deal with.


I hafta say, the Cycoactive blokes are the best. If anyone can help they will.

Two suggestions

I just went out to look at my 1100GS, I think this is the model you have. The shifter is adjustable for height. It has two rod end links, one on top and one on the bottom. Mine has about a 1/2" of exposed thread total between the two. They might be tightened up to raise the shifter end that much.

Second, the foot peg is a simple bent piece of steel with two flanges set between two flanges on the mount. The pin is a plain pin held on by a cotter pin. IF you moved the foot peg to strattle the rear flange on the mount rather than setting between the two mount flanges it would move the peg backwards and down about 3/8". This would require making a new longer pin out of a carrage bolt, the smooth non threaded part and drilling a cotter pin hole in it.

These two temp fixes would give you more room for your boot. You could also make a new lower set of pegs easily after looking at the originals. They are only two pieces of bent steel welded together. I'd even consider turning the original pegs upside down and welding a new foot platform on the bottom. This would lower the foot platform 1-2". They'd be usable either way, high or low. All you would need is a piece of steel strap, a big vise, a hammer, saw or torch, an angle grinder, and a welder, the usual stuff.
