Question Lower footpegs for a 2014 GSA

Looking for footpegs that will bring my feet lower and forward.. I have no idea what measurements the Germans use as their "average" rider..

I don't know how tall YOU are, or what your inseam length is, but the website "Cycle-Ergo" (http://cycle-ergo.com/) says that at my 6'1" and 33" inseam I'll have a 92 degree knee angle and 95 degree hip angle. That's a very relaxed riding position (especially compared to sportbikes)
I already drag the pegs on my standard GS. An inch lower would be intolerable.

Suburban machinery pegs will lower the pegs one inch on the GSA. Can't say they are any farther forward, but they are definitely lower. Draw your own conclusions from my photos.

I put on the pegs from Ilium Works that has multiple adjustment points. I like the fact that the pedal can "float" if you want.

Pat, I have them on my 2014 GSAwc. I had no problems getting them on you just have to be careful with the right side.

The link was the model I purchased. They have been on almost 4k miles and no issues.

You must have the magic touch!!! The first 2 pics are the stock pegs the 3rd one is the Ilium... the spring extended part just can't fit in the hole in the BMW Bracket when fit on the Ilium footpeg

Finally got those suckers on ...Boy the right one was tough!! Took about an hour ...Anyway on the shift side adjusted it all the way up and still wanted a little bit more to get my toe under.. Loosened up the spline slipped it of went to move it one spline up SURPRISE!!! can't move it on the splines..at 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock
on the shaft there are 2 bigger grooves that line up with 2 flats on the arm??? So the only adjustment is thru the threaded rod...Oh well..
