Mk3 footpeg lowering kit wanted - (FOUND)
« on: Aug 17, 2021, 01:44 PM »
As the title says, I'm looking for a footpeg lowering kit for my 2018 mk3.
Motowerk doesn't ship here, T rex is out of stock, and mfw Vario is about 150. I'd really rather not spend that much if I don't need to.
I did consider the highway footpegs as an alternative, but my crash bars wouldn't allow me to get my feet comfortably on them.
Thanks

How low do you want to go? I have these SW Motech footpegs for sale and they have a high and a low adjustment. You'd have to check they fit your bike though (they fit a MK1 + 2 for sure)

Well ideally a decent lowering. most i've seen don't lower by too much, but even 15mm is better than stock. I've had a look at SWM offerings on their site, and the install instructions. So Mk1 and 2 are identical, Mk3 is mainly same parts except the spacers are a different size and rather than 2 off of the main blocks, they have a left and right one with different part numbers.
I think I'd need to take off the pegs tomorrow and measure all the bits in question, if they match up with your dimensions I would think it could work.

Sorted! After much back and forth measuring, it turns out the SWMotech Mk1/Mk2 pegs are for all intents and purposes identical to the Mk3.
Difficult to tell from the instruction manuals as they use different angles for the images and the serial ## is different.
