RocStompa on the F800GS

Here ya go. You can see when it is folded up it just clears the spring lug for the side stand.

++ on Pivot Pegs. One of the first mods I do on my bikes (second is progressive fork springs). Have them on the F800 and the 1200GS. Have used them off road on Colorado passes and in Mexico. I just float along on the rough sections while the bike moves freely below me. Love not having to adjust the shifter angle when switching between street shoes and off road boots, just 'pivot' the peg down and its business as usual. Haven't tried any of the other good aftermarket pegs out there.

Pivotpegz for me. I am very happy with them, without them, I can't change gear with my offroad boots, irrespective of whether or no I'm standing on them.
I'm 6'2", doing mostly road riding, but I stand up road riding when the surface is bad.

adjusting rear brake height

What I did to raise my brake pedal's resting height was to remove the pedal from the bike and grind a small amount off the lever at the spot where it hits the stop on the frame. Take it easy, do it in stages so you don't go too far. Not to worry though, if you did grind too much, or someday want to re-locate for different pegs or something, a blob of weld on the contact point will let you start over.

Thought about the PivotPegz, but my Achilles tendons bother me enough as it is, and I figured I didn't need the extra flexion exacerbating an already painful condition.
They did knock the spring peg off on my bike. Thankfully I was only a couple blocks from home. Ground the remaining nub down, drilled and tapped it - put a screw in. Peg now folds without hitting anything. What a pain in the ass if it happened on the trail.

I would recommend avoiding the Fastway pegs.

Why didn't they fit? the bracket spacing and angle is the same

The fastways that I first put on my bike were 12GS ones, before fastway was even selling them for the 8.

Thumbs down Fastway to a broken part

They fit but when the left side folds up it breaks off the the little nub that holds the sidestand spring.

That's a great idea! Every other bike I've owned had an easily adjustable splined lever. Your idea is golden. You should get a prize or something. Haven't even looked at that contact point sense I've seen this post, but I wonder if a drill & tap with a small locking bolt, for easy adjustment is possible?

Great idea SingleTrack.

Left and right

If you crash hard enough on the right sometimes the left peg will fold up....

Got the Pivot Pegz in yesterday (actually my wife gave them to me ), and installed them. Big difference (much better) standing. A note: The right peg feels like it has quite a bit more lateral slack / movement on the original pin after install. The left feels more solid. Is it just me?

++1 on the Pivot Pegz
Ran them on my 1150GS and now on the little 800GS
Worked well for me from Big Bend to Engineer Pass as well as on the road.
If they made em for my SV650 I'd buy em!

I know it's a BMW, but anybody got a lead on something that might just space these pegs down an inch or two? Like a $10 piece of metal someone's selling for $20? I could use that, but I'll keep dealing with cramped knees short of spending $60 a piece to ease them. Cripes my first dirtbike costed less than these pegs.
