Footpeg on the TV

Does anybody know how to lower the footpegs a bit? I'am 1,85m tall and my knees are scratching at the edge of the tank.
So I wonder is there a way to lower them a bit?

I have the same issue. You can try taking the rubber out of the footpegs - looks like that will get you a bit more legroom. There also are (expensive) aftermarket pegs that might give a bit more legroom (https://www.designcorse.com/collecti...nt=11505635137)

The other alternative, which I'm going to do first, is go with having my seat redone with about an inch more padding. That may work with the knee hitting the fairing as it will change the angle (or it may make it worse - my simulation with towels hasnt been conclusive ). With my Tiger I swapped to a taller seat and it gave me the legroom I wanted. I really don't want to lower the pegs on the TV as that will interfere with cornering.

Interested to hear what you think. I was going to try it, but looks like it might not be a reversible thing - the rubber retaining flange might stretch through the hole or you might need to cut it off. I didn't mess with it much.

In my case I'm interested in a tad more legroom, but really don't want to lower the pegs. The knee room I've dealt with by changing my shifting technique. I kick my knee out when I use the shifter pedal, then slide my foot back so that my knee fits below the fairing piece. In order to cock my foot to get under the shifter, it pushes my knee up and hits the fairing. Adding some padding to the saddle might help by changing the angle but I haven't experimented too much yet. I may try adding a sheepskin pad as a quick/dirty test to see if that helps.

I am not sure that this will help... I will try with the rubber, but I'm not in Hamburg at this time ... holiday in Florida. As soon I get home , I definitely will try it :-)
