Raising the Pillion Pegs
« on: September 25, 2019, 08:52:57 PM »
My GF has her own bikes, but has only been on the back of my XR the once.
The reason being, she is 5’ 0” with about 26” legs & finds the pillion pegs a stretch.

I’ve searched for a solution, and found plenty of options to lower the pillion pegs, but nothing to raise them.
I did find interesting variable height pegs by Gilles, but it seems only for the R and RR.

My wife has the same concerns.  Have you been able to find a solution yet?

My GF had her own bike & preferred not to ride on the XR. My bike has since been sold.
If I recall correctly I did find someone who made raisers for pillion pegs, if I remember more I'll post
