Buell footpegs will work on the GSX S1000

FADE IN to the workshop of the 'GONZO GARAGE'....Well folks, as suspected the Buell front footpegs (#N0521.1AD) RH and (#NO520.1AD) LH!!!!!!will work on the GSX S1000... I knew they worked on my 'Busa'. Soooooooo being over 6 foot and having old knees (toooo much knee paddling on my ol' Phil Edwards longboard when I was younger) I needed something that allowed me to stretch my legs a bit. I did a weeee bit (not much) of grinding on the pegs to make them fit. The holes on the Buell are a weeeee bit larger so rolled up a small piece of some thin aluminum flashing for a bushing (heavy aluminum foil used in a Safeway pie tin I think would also work) and it worked perfectly. I think the MC-MOTOPARTS product would've worked too but I canceled the order as the Buell footpegs look great and stretch the old legs...PEACE RIDE SAFE

I just switched my Buell pegs over from the Busa to the GSXS while I wait for a second set of Buell pegs to arrive. My original set came modified from Joe over on the Busa board. Direct fit as they come from him.

Until I see a picture of the pegs, I'm pretending you guys have hello kitty stickers on the tank..

I dont recall ever noticing a buells pegs. What makes them different, or an upgrade?

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think the Buell pegs are significantly lower than the stock pegs giving you substantially more knee/leg room but unfortunately less lean angle. Good for some and not so good for others. Depends what your after.....

They are significantly lower. Being tall and having a bad knee, they help quite a bit.

I went puttin' around the backroads this Saturday and took a few, not as many as I used to, tight corners (enough to have virtually no "chicken strips"). I found no problem in getting enough of a lean angle. Although I'm the first to admit I'm not as an aggressive rider as some of you folks might be; my knees said, "thank you...thankyouverymuch.." in their best Elvis voice at the end of the day. PEACE RIDE SAFE

Even if they do touch...I think we have similar knees. If so...

They for sure dont touch when the bike is parked in the garage because my knees are too sore to ride. I know my bike, with low pegs, might not be moto gp worthy, but i can ride it!

I ordered two sets. One for each bike, and thank you for finding this.

Could I ask where you ordered them from please? If I order them in NZ, they are likely to take several times as long as if I order them directly from the US

I take it that there is sufficient thread on the brake and gear shift to set up identical angles to the OEM setup?

These were also popular amongst the SV 1000 community for the same reason.
