    I bought the ones that lower by 1 1/2". They have been great on the increased leg room and very good for foot placement/traction on pegs.

    I wish those cans were around before I bought my BC reverse mini cones (which my son now has). They would be perfect after I ceramic coated them.

    Neither here nor there.
    Going with lowering pegs is certainly one way to go if you are trying to get more leg room. I considered that as it's worked for me on other bikes, but with the already limited ground clearance a better option might be raising the seat height with taller shocks and/or a taller seat. But if ground clearance doesn't matter the pegs are probably the less $ option.

    Great Video!
    I forwarded this to my buddies. They keep busting my balls about trying to 'adventure ride' on my Scrambler.
    It goes with out saying, they are all on KTMs
    Side bar, if they had better rubber on the two bikes that mud wouldn't have been an issue. I've ridden gumbo like that on my Scrambler with Scouts mounted up with no problem. I have pictures somewhere of me breaking trail through snow banks.
    Great off road tire.

    They had Tkc 80's on them which is a good tire for the conditions. Looked like it was just to slippery and they didn't want to chance it with the bad weather.

    The K&L Lowered pegs work well for my AARP riding style. My knees, hips and lower back are very pleased with his product. $139 includes shipping anywhere in the USA.

    This is Ken's, of K&L, response to my inquiry.

    Hi
    I make a set for the Scrambler that is not on the website.
    They drop a little over an inch , maybe 1 1/4.
    Thats about as low as you can safely go on the Scram .
    An inch makes a hell of a difference in knee bone comfort .

    Hello all,

    very new to the Triumph Scrambler, actually made the deal and rode her home today (nice 100 mile ride from the dealer) 2014 model silver red (I"ll post photos when I can) rather than digging through the thousand odd pages here could someone PM me links to rear racks, lowered foot pegs, just looking to get a little more leg room (I'm 6'5") and a better place to attach my tail bag. One question has anyone tried using a wolfman explorer tankbag on the Scrambker, I have one, just curious about the fit up (it's and older one 15 years or so)

    thanks

    I'm a big fan of the K&L pegs too. I contacted Ken and he made a set for me with a 1" drop and the slight rearset which because they are not as "thick" as the stock pegs give me the same cornering clearance and a lot more comfort. -- I'm a happy camper and he is really great to deal with !!!

    Congrats Selkirkswamper!

    A few post back fhere was pics of the K'n L lowered footpegs. Mine are 5/8" lowered. They also come in 1 1/2" lowered as well. Different choices of peg width as well. See No Degrees post and pics above.

    I was in the same dilemma looking for a seat rack and went with the Renntec rack. Well made and great fit!

    Im not sure about the Wolfman tank bag, I have one that i use on my DR650, and i havent tried the fit on the Scrambler. I use a magnetic tank bag for the Scrambler.

    Have fun with the new ride, the Scrambler is a great bike.

    Cheers.

    This is something that lots of riders tend to overlook when they think about lowered footpegs. Being much thinner than the stock pegs (and of what use is the material below the support on stock pegs?) they do not compromise your lean angle. Repositioning the stock pegs with brackets or spacers does not offer that advantage. JMHO

    Does anybody here know if you can put a set of TKC-80's with these specs onto stock Scrambler wheels?
    Rear is 150/70B1717 tl

    yes. My buddy ran a 150 rear and I am running a 110/80/19 on my front w/o any issues. I actually prefer the 110/80/19 to the 100/90/19.

    Oh for sure, I'm not hate'n on them for bailing on that trail. Not at all. I just think, IMHO, the Heidenau is a great tire for that type of gumbo.
    Really tough to say though since neither of us were riding it out with them.
