Pillion footrest height
« on: 2013-08-31 23:54:53 »
My wife has short legs and finds the pillion footrest height too low. This makes it difficult getting on and off. Are there any kits available to remedy this?

    I also checked Verholen and Wunderlich, but they only seem to have lowering kits.

    Thank you for looking. Perhaps it would be easier to change the wife for one with longer legs!

      Might be an option although divorces are normally more expensive  ;D (from what I've heard; still happily married).

        Just picked bike up and my pillion may have the too short leg problem as well. Had a look and Verholen  kit is called a lowering kit but it says it can be fitted upside down to raise the peg height. Will be out for a few more rides to check pillion "fit" and then decide if we need to do adjustments
        how much Mr BMW ?

          Update from pillion is that she feels OK on bike now and that she probably does not need peg risers, good choice from her as I have option of a free upgrade pillion with longer legs  ;D
