lower pegs

Hitchcocks out of the UK sells a peg lowering kit. Is there a stateside distributor for Hitchcock products? Anyone stateside sell a peg lowering kit? Trying to cure the painful ergonomics of the 650.

Which 650 do you have, I have an Interceptor and want higher, rear set pegs and plan to get some Continental GT fittings when they are available. If you have a Conti. you could try the opposite. (peg brackets and brake/gear lever swap). The Hitchcocks set only allows a fairly small adjustment.

This is in the Interceptor forum soooo guess. I'm 6' 2" and have wasted money on a custom seat that is 2"wider and 2" taller, didn't help at all. Have tried raising the bars, and traded out to a more narrow bar. No help. Will try lower pegs as a last ditch effort. If not this turd goes up for sale or trade.

I'm assuming because you are Kansas that lowering the pegs won't get in the way of cornering the bike. ;)

Unless the peg mounts are proprietary to Royal Enfield many different lowering blocks should work. Compare how your pegs are mounted to other very popular bikes and maybe you will find something.

I had rotating mounts for my '07 Ninja 650 that let me mount the pegs lower, higher, further back, or further forward. I probably got them from twisted throttle or ebay.

For what its worth, I have ordered several (more than four) things from Hitchcock's and delivery has typically been right at a week, or less, until about March of this year. They typically get it out quickly, even recently despite any travel restrictions, and it has gotten to the states quickly, but the last thing I ordered (mid-March) got to the US quick enough, but went from JFK to somewhere in Mass, to somewhere else in Mass, before headed south to NC. It still was under two weeks...if any of that helps.

Sorry Spaceman, quite new to this forum lark and didn't realise each one was titled. Did you try the bike before buying ?

Correct, Kansas is so flat we never consider scraping pegs, Yes I had a test ride at a demo day, that little 3 mile ride did not reveal the pain and numbness that starts at the 20 mile mark.

Did some experimenting. The placement of the gear shift is somewhat higher than on other popular bikes. Over engineered would be a correct description. The gear box is reverse of any bike I have owned and this is a problem. To bring a peg down will create a too close condition with the shift lever. The peg must be lowered in such a manner to allow the shifter to rotate clockwise, which means all the extra parts must be left in place. The peg cannot be attached to the exhaust bolt, about where it should have been, only because of this reverse gear box. If the peg is moved lower, it can't be moved forward. The peg will not remain level. Looks bad. So down and back are a better option. Again the extra shift linkage must also be modified . Going to continue to working on this problem.

They look to be able to be rotated so they can be down, down and forward, down and back, or higher of course.

I have looked at their parts in the past. No Enfield specific pegs. Everything seems a bit pricey. One of the goals of DIY projects is to create an economic solution that may be adopted by others.
