    Driver Lowering pegs for 2016 RT...inquiry

    So then, one cannot adjust the foot brake pedal after installing a lowered peg gadget?

    Which lowering peg gadgets would you recommend?

    Knight Design or Suburban Machinery Lowered Footpegs

    I recently ordered a Knight Design set in Silver Anodized with Sidetrax Tread; all one piece with springs and pins. These can be ordered in different configurations of finish and tread. About $80 cheaper than Suburban Machinery adapters. I have a set of Suburban Machinery pegs on my wife's 2008 RT that orginally were on the 2016 RT-LC. Both designs are great and I did NOT have to adjust shifter or brake.

    The riders lowering kit from http://wunderlich.sportouring.net/BM...g--silver-7136 comes with a adjustment plate which one installs the brake lever assembly onto, effectively moving the lever to the rear.
    Hope this helps anyone......................

    Hi ksb245. I saw your post on the forum about the Knight design Silver Anodized Sidetrax tread foot peg lower kit. I am also looking at their kit too. My question to you is do you notice any additional vibration compared to the stock pegs. The new pegs do not have the rubber coating on them. And I am concerned if there are any noticeable vibrations with the new pegs. Could you please let me know what your experience has been with the new pegs.
