Passenger footpeg relocation...

I've searched for it and hope someone would direct me to it if I missed this thread. But I'm considering relocating the passenger footpeg to move it forward and down to be more comfortable for the passenger, or any mod done to the passenger pegs that you can share. Pics would be helpful too...Thanks and ride safe.

I got the relo kit from artisanengineering.com. Moved the pegs forward and down a little. Goes very well with the lines of the bike. Wife has enjoyed them more than me though.

I made rear foot peg bars for my '07 VRSCX. I used 3/8" thick x 1" wide aluminum bar about 4" long if I remember. It moved the rear foot pegs forward about 1 1/2" and down about 1/2". My girlfriend is 5'10 and her legs were cramping up. This solved the problem. I will take a pic when i get home and post. I may have the drawing I made for them. Took me about half an hour to make. Painted them satin black and they blend right in.

Thanks for the info...

The website you mentioned is not working or cannot find the relo kit. I think I like how this kit is set up so if you could, please send the right website or explain how I would get there. Thanks again.

for 180 bucks or so I bought all the mid pegs from a D model except for the motor mount and did this..... had to make a spacer for the right side as you can see in the pics.
I can use them also for a different posistion and GF is happy with them.

Nice set up 77RRAD and I'm sure your passenger is loving the comfort and that's basically what I'm looking for. Unfortunately, I still have the stock pipe with the slash cut slip ons from TABS and I don't think the right peg would work with your set up. But I do appreciate you sharing that nice work...great job. Ride safe.

I emailed Engineering Artisan about his kit for my DX about a month ago. He says he is out of stock with no plans for a future run due to low demand.

Remove the stock exhaust. Add a proper 2 into 1, and then pm me. I have a set of the V&H footpeg relo brackets, but they won't work with the stock exhaust. One solution is the footpeg extender. Dancing dogs has a thread on it. She runs an R exhaust, which the 2012 bikes use. Joe

Ghost Rider customs sell them but they wont fit with the standard exhaust, if you are running SuperTrapps then they will. Here is the link
