I loved them on the hayabusa until I started to rail on the bike. Between the buell pegs and helibars that bike was super comfortable. Once I was capable of riding that bike fast, both had to go. Pegs started dragging at extreme lean angles.

You will notice i have left the "hero" blobs off meantime till i see how it feels. Was about to go for a ride and it started pissing down with rain, so that was that.:crying:

You will love the feel, that extra inch makes all the difference. As long as you’re not really pushing the pace, you’ll have no problem with dragging them. I was dragging my stator cover on the hayabusa, so that gives you an idea at the pace I was running. The black looks very nice as well.

Sounds like you should be racing in MotoGP LOL . "Dragging my stator cover " Thats some funny chit right there lmao
No, just in my young and dumber days. I found the limits of the big girl a couple of times, that’s when I decided to go smaller to go faster. Fixing it gets expensive. lol

Well had the bike out today for the first time since i got it, havent had the time till now and the pegs were perfect. Im sure my old hips would have protested far more than they did, had i the OEM ones fitted. Just need to get some more time in the saddle before i head for the "ISLAND"

Funny how a small change makes such a big difference, glad it worked out for you.
Its worked to a certain level, but its been 21 months since ive been on a bike and im just not bike fit, hips and knees ache a little but hopefully that will improve. If not there will be a bike for sale when i come back from the TT. :eek:

I thought for sure you were going to say it felt weird because you didn't change the placement of the shifter-rear brake. Glad it worked out for you.

No the shifter was fine took about 20 seconds, however the brake light switch was a pain in the rear. I ended up taking the rearset off altogether it was easier that way.
