Pillion footrest
« on: May 15, 2016, 09:39:23 PM »
I had a test ride on a S1000XR today as I'm thinking about changing from my Z1000SX. Only one problem. My wife didn't enjoy it as much as I did. The pillion footrests are too low for her short legs. Is there any modification out there that could raise them?

You can buy some eccentric type footrests which most people us to lower, however theres no reason you couldn't swing them upwards.

Something like these:

or these i guess:

http://www.bikermart.co.uk/proddetail.asp?prod=pegad

theres actually quite a few options of similar products, either way you should be able to close the distance a good 1-2"
