Thank you - this is very helpful. I want to see what I can do to modify the jesse racks so I don't have to add width - I don't want to risk getting my feet caught in stuff either... Given that I don't plan to use the front section of the jesse rack loops and generally keep my panniers at the back, I may just modify the front area of those loops if I can do it cleanly without compromising strength, etc. though the spacers/shims seems to be the path of least resistance...

Passenger peg right rear 1.565
Passenger peg left side rear .800
I modified the left side front because my boot would catch on it. Keep in mind I wear a 14 boot. Need to get a button head for the front bolt.
You will have to use longer bolts, just add the spacer length to the bolt length. I like the button head, just less to rub on your boot.
Also, the spacers would not be that long if you run the passenger pegs, I just have them removed.
Hope this helps.
