Kokopelli has a similar set on his R100GS Basic. He likes them.

they look basically the same as the touratech lowered pegs which I have had- both have OEM style pegs lowered by 30mm

legroom comfortable for sitting- but these narrow pegs suck for standing

so depends how you ride....

With Koko's pegs, they were somewhat wider than stock. But still fairly narrow compared to my pivot pegs. Shifting the pegs forward is also counter-productive for riding dirt.

Thanks for the info..................

I understand the narrowness will be uncomfortable for hours of standing.

I like the idea of lower but not necessarily forward, as stated above.

It's all about:
1. leg room while sitting
2. no "slippery" rubber off road
3. $

But, no one has chimed in about these particular pegs........................

Is the Wunderlich shifter reversible ??

From the photo it's not clear if it would be possible to mount the Wunderlich shifter rear facing, which would be necessary for your GS.



I used the lower pegs from Migsel, and also installed their " shifter roller ". It works out to be about $100 less. ( and shipping is included)

I drilled a small hole in the foot pegs and used the OEM springs, they work like a charm.

Migsel.com

akabeton.... your set up looks slick

From the Wunderlich website they are made for the GS, so I don't think there would be a problem with reversibility.

Did you cut (shorten) the stock shift lever, drill a hole & then mount the roller?

Sounds like an excellent and cost effective solution..........................

Yes, I cut the end off the shifter and used what would have been the 2nd hole on the shifter to install the new " shifter roller". I used some thread lock on the hardware. The shifter roller is very comfortable to use, and I would say it has made shifting a little smoother ( not as many false neutrals ).

The footpeg install is very straightforward about ten minutes per side. If you wish to retain the self retracting feature of the stock pegs you can use the OEM springs and drill a small hole in the new pegs to retain the spring. The steel is very hard, it took longer to drill the hole than to do the install.


Migsel were great to deal with, fast service and a good quality product.

I chose the Fastway Pegs for my GS, most for the least if you buy the base model.

Really!
7/8 of an inch?
From what I've seen stated as the distance lowered it was 10 mm (25/64 inch).
Do you know the model #?
Maybe F3 22-2-603?

Geez, it's been years now. When you put the footrest into the peg of the kit, you have the option of semi-permantly installing the pin in the high or low position. When you add up this, and the fact there's no rubber on the Fastways, it's indeed lower. In fact, it lowered my legs enough, I had to alter my Corbin seat foam padding,,,,,it started digging into my inner thighs where the Corbin has a defined ridge with that piping.
