    Are the stock pegs on the GS and the GSA different?
    Even on the "low" setting my pivot pegs are higher than stock on the GSA.

    The same pegs will fit the 1100/1150/1200. The stock pegs on the GS are different than the GS Adv, but the mounts are the same.

    Another option is the MFW Vario Footpeg System.

    What to buy

    1. Footpeg Mount - Sold in pairs.
    2. Displacement Arm - Displacement arm lengths are sold in pairs, however each length is sold separately &#151;purchase either the 23, 30 or *50mm length.
    3. Footpeg - Footpegs are sold in pairs, however each style is sold separately purchase either the Racing, "Master Grip or Super Grip style.

    We highly recommend that you DO NOT purchase the 50mm displacement arms for the RIDER footpeg. It tends to cause issues with the brake and shift levers.

    Thanks, Kevin. I included it in the list, but those would be rough to stand on off road. Someone may benefit from it though...

    I am 6'4" with a 35" inseam. On my '01 I went with the Suburban Machinery pegs. They really helped with knee angle and hip cramping. I have put many 700 mile days in the saddle with them and it would have been unbearable with the stock pegs.

    My bike came with the Touratech adjustable pegs. I tried the pivot pegs but I didn't like the positioning, even in the "lowboy" setting. I went back to the Touratechs - they just work for me. 6'3", 34" inseam.

    Anyone want to buy a set of pivot pegs? Used for about a month. :deal

    I am same size and put the same pegs on my '02GS. WOW what a difference. I like them as you can put the rubber inserts from the stock pegs back in.

    ± 30mm lower than the stock footpegs
    ± 10mm wider, providing more support

    Comfy and grippy, can stand for ages without sore feet.

    Good to know. I was considering this set up.

    Pic?

    How is braking and shifting affected seated? standing?

    Do you miss the rubber inserts?

    Pics later.
    The gear lever is a little higher than I would like, to clear the loop on the side stand. I've gotten used to it though.
    The brake lever is fine, a little more inboard of the peg than before.
    The Wunderlich kit comes with extension rods for both.
    Don't miss the rubber inserts at all. Wear and tear on boot soles minimal. Be wary of loose jeans though. Could catch the peg when putting a foot down.
    Standing and sitting much more comfortable now. Can stand after a long sit without pain like before.
    The whole setup looks genuine, integrates really well.

    You should adjust the lever angle. It is pretty easy to do!

    Yep, old thread revivalism at its finest...

    Am I to understand that the Mk3 Pivot Pegs that fit a 1200GS will also fit my 1150GS? Which 1200GS? All? Early?

    TIA :thumb

    Typically yes, though some have reported a slight variation in build tolerances. Nothing a slight grinding wheel application wont fix.
