KLR650 Real Footpeg Lowering Brackets (Ready for Orders!)

PROTOTYPE PICTURE ONLY


OK guys, here a picture to show the bracket is being made and I've got a delivery date set of July 30ish.

The finished bracket will be obviously thinner in the wall around the box and have the correct bend in it when it's completed. I just took it off the mill to take a picture so you guys can see there's a real part and it really will be made, like I said. It will be coated in a "Black Chromate" finish, and maybe powder coated silver if time allows. (If not, you can just hit them with silver spray paint like the stock bracket is)

This is a "Pre-Production Prototype" for hole location, and footpeg fitment. So please don't start in with the "looks too thick or heavy" because I've already made the adjustments with my machinist buddy using the bike and other footpegs as references. If anyone cares the wall thickness of the finished box will be .167" (The stock is .128")

Here's the deal, I need to "Pre-Sell" 20 of these badboys.

The price will be $85 a pair, and I'll cover the shipping anywhere. Send PayPal money to: KLRStuff@gmail.com
I have a verified merchant account, so I can take credit cards if need be.

This is the official thread to buy them... I'll start making a list as people pay.

1. Biker Scout (Paid)
2. Fixer (Paid)
3. BradF_NC (Paid)
4. KLRob (Paid)
5. WGrant (Paid)
6. Jajeguantijo (Paid)
7. LaPorte (Paid)
8. Jason Teague (Paid)
9.
10.
11.
12.
13.
14.
15.
16.
17.
18.
19.
20.

If you miss out on this run do not worry, this will be an "Aways" product on my website. This will not be a limited run, but I have to pay for the first batch of materials and prototype and tooling upfront.

Thanks in advance guys!

Personally I'm using larger bore hole on my stock footpeg mounts. So I made sure that there was enough material to do this after the fact. Because not everyone will be using the same pegs. But they are designed to take the stock peg for sure.

If you can remind me, maybe I'll enlarge the holes on yours as well.

The new bracket drops your foot approximately 1.25" from the stock location. Unlike lowering plates, nothing hangs below the frame of the bike. There aren't 4 bolts to deal with and they also move your center of gravity lower and over the swingarm pivot. When standing on the pegs you feel more in control of the bike without feeling like you are going to endo over the front of the handlebars.

I'm 6'1" and have the Pro Taper ATV Highs, and the 1" bar risers. With the footpeg relocation bracket it feels more controlable. I feel like it's a natural position, and more likely to stand when I'm supposed to over rougher surfaces, or going down steep grades.

I forgot to add, that I'll be including a new set of hardened bolts to go with the brackets to replace the weak stock bolts.

edit: ok, I see the other thread now with a lot of info

and how far back? It looks like pretty far. I ask because I have a set of "lo-tek" style lowering brackets that are just a piece of metal in a trapazoidal shape -- drops about 1.25" and back about 3/4". This makes the bike feel MUCH better, but I would like to get rid of the snag-hazzard.

I am concerned about how far back your pegs go, though. I wear a size 45 boot (about size 11 US), and my current setup is working well for me while the stock was a little tight for comfort.

The official "Back" measurement hasn't been made with the new bracket just yet, because they still have to recieve the bend in them, which is crucial to fitment. We calcualated the bend will reduce what you see there by about 1" in overall length.

The first prototype that I made moved the peg almost 1.75" from center to center. Less than the width of a business card.

When I go back later on this week to pick up a bracket to bend, I'll have more solid numbers.

I wear a 46, and so far it was waaaayy better than the stock placement.

As a reminder, please include your Screen Name in the subject of your PayPal order. I've got some unaccounted for names that don't match up with people who said they sent money.

Post it in a 'oil' or 'make your own pannier' thread, you'll be swamped.
