800XC lower pegs for tall rider

Hello,

At 6'4" with tall legs, I need to find some lower foot pegs for my new 2014 Tiger 800XC. 1-2 inches would mean the absolute world to me. The seat is on the Tall setting.

Does anybody know of any good options?

As there is no information where you live, I can only provide what I did being about your size.

Went the way with the German Motobau pegs (http://motobau.de/product_info.php?t...tiger-800.html) being 1" lower.

In combination with the seat in high position I feel absolute fine on all kind of rides.

In addition the back is rised 35mm and the front forks are flush with the triple trees.

Cheers
Roland

I put a set of these on my TEX. http://www.knlcycle.com/ I'm also 6'4" with 35" inseam. They're about 1" lower, 3/4" wider, & the price is right. The guy runs his business out of his home & is a pleasure to do business with.

I got the Deluxe. The Megas must be new. I would have bought them if they had been available...

I have a pair made by SW-Motech that have two settings; standard height and lowered. I cannot remember how much lower the low setting gets you.

Their website shows 15mm.

I'm interested in getting my standing height lower, as even with bar risers i'm having to bend over while standing to reach the handlebars.

Any other genius options out there?

Be careful, lower them too much and cornering becomes an issue..

I'm 6' 3", 34 inch inseam, and I scrape the pegs at their stock height almost every day.

I used 2 inch ROX risers on the bars, so standing is almost good, and I have a sheepskin pad over an Airhawk buttpad, with the seat in it's high position, so the leg/knee angle isn't too bad.

Still not quite as comfortable as my KLR, but pretty darn close.
