does anyone make a rearset that would lower or move the peg back by an inch or so?
I dont want anything extreme, or something that would drag all the time, however at 6'1 the tops of the tank kneewells push into my knees when on the brake or actively shifting

ohh and its a gen 1

I put these on my bike upside down so that they are back and lower

they also have other options

or try these buell footpegs from the for sale section, I believe they are already modified so that will save a lot of time,

i got my the plates yesterday from SVracer.
trying to use them upside down there is about 1/8 to 1/16" of interference with the plate and the exhaust mounting bracket. then again about the same amount with the acutal real set hitting the same mount.

It seems like if the rubber mount for the exhaust were thinner, or ever flipped around it might work, however i could not get the rubber mount and the metal washer out to test.

does anyone have experience with this?

I didnt realize you had a gen one but with mine I had to do a little modding with a large hammer(my exhaust is not round anymore).

keep trying and you will get it to work somehow
