    Check with Jerry at Pirateslair.net I guess first you should check with the folks that sold them to you. It will be interesting to hear how much ground clearance you lose. I know my pegs are almost ground into the rubber insert and the transmission level has been eaten away pretty much as well. I bought some new pegs, Oberon I think, but have yet to put them on. Also considered the pre 01 pegs as they are a bit higher but was warned on that one by beemer boneyard that the change screws with the the ergos of the transmission lever. I guess you will have to disassemble it once you are finished to adjust it to a new position. You might be able to just grind off some of the stop on the end piece so you can turn it a bit more. Maybe that will be all you need to move it down and forward enough. Also check how the brake lever responds to the new position so you don't have it overly senstive or overly insensitive to your new foot angle.

    I know in the end this is pretty useless info based upon what you are asking, so go back to your source for them and ask or ask Jerry. Post up some pics of what you do as you do it to help others.

    Love to see some pics of the install. I've felt that lower pegs would be better when I first got the bike but am now getting used to the sporty position. I jockey up on the bike when the going gets twisty. I'd much prefer something a little less leaned-forward for the bars for long distance but I'll get used to that too I imagine. No help here, just curious since I have the same bike.

    I installed Wunderlich's lowering kit on my 01 last June, and found the install to be straight forward. If its the same as your kit, simple remove the old peg, and center the new peg per the instructions. After removing the current pegs, install the adapter plates as shown in the instructions... the bigger plate has two bolts on it, which goes towards the front, and the smaller, single bolt adapter plate goes on the back bolt. Then attach the new peg to the installed adapter plate. I did have a little interference with the kickstand striking the back of the left hand peg housing, but not enough to keep it from retracting....

    I will say that they tend to scrape fairly easy on a sharp twisty turn, but I bought the bike for long tours, so I just cool it a little in sharp twisties.... I'd rather be comfortable in the knees on a 5-600 mile day than worry about a little scraping.... :-)

    Good luck and keep the rubber side down....Walt E.
