Lowered my Footpegs - 990

Hi Guys,

Just some pictures of the lowered footpegs from MotoBau.
I am 1m98, installed the Rox Risers which fit the KTM without changing the cables.
It is now perfect for me..

Hi, if I'm correct and those are the 3 cm lower pegs, did you have to adjust the brake and shift pedals or not....

I was thinking the same thing. I'd love to go downward 3cm but there isn't enough adjustment in the brake

today I took the bike to work.

the brake pedal is still ok for me... takes a little adjustment in my head. :) ( I can still lower it a little with the standard-adjustment-thingie .. )
The shift-pedal is another thing, I will have to lower it asap ... this is not comfortable ..

BUT standing up now is sooo relax!
( I drove to work standing up almost all the time :) )

I'd love to have a set of those.. I'm 1.98m as well, and the pegs are a touch high for me as well..

But for 140 euros.. omg..

Seeing your pictures reminded me I wanted to do the same. Last year I cut my F570 pegs, made a lowering bracket of about 1 1/4", then welded it together. I did the same this week end with my 990 pegs and it really helps. Not only is the bar to peg distance better, but so is the ease of transition from sitting to standing. Longer distance in the saddle is also helped due to less bend in the knee. I highly recommend it as you are still well above the frame tubes/skid plate.

the #1 problem is there isn't enough adjustment in the brake lever. I'm trying to figure out whether to (a) cut the brake lever and bend it further down (and reweld) or move the master cylinder.

I've also considered welding the hole in the banjo bolt and drilling a new, smaller hole.

Bottom line - the fricking rear barke locks up way to easily because there isn't enough adjustment.

All you have to do is remove the plunger to the master cylinder and shorten it the desired amount to give your pedal a lower resting position and yet still maintain the ability to adjust it up if needed. If I get a chance I will snap a picture.

Not so easy if the bike is 950 (maybe early 990s too), because those have a different push rod that is kept in place with a circlip. 990s have that brake pedal stop thingy and simple push rod without the ball end. I think..

Thread resurrection time. Found some 7/8" lower pegs with bigger plat forms through a company called Knight Designs LLC out of Oregon. $140 shipped. Looks promising
