Hi All

Some members on here suffer from bad knees and or bad backs this modification results is about an inch down and an inch back in the foot pegs

The modification is fairly easy with just a bit of fettling with a file to get to fit .Takes about an hour.

Basically you have have to modify the Buell pegs three ways. Once you get them and try to fit them, you'll see exactly what you have to do.

1. File/grind the part of the peg that slides into the mount. It is too thick by a few millimeters. I had a rough metal file that took the metal away quickly by laying the file on a flat surface, then pushing the peg across it.

2. File/grind the part of the peg that rests against the inside of the mount. This is hard to describe, but it's the part of the peg that's vertical and bears your weight when you press down on the peg. If you don't do this, the peg won't sit flat in the mount, but will be tilted up a bit. Again, it becomes very apparent when you see it. I used the same filing/grinding method and it took about 10 seconds to get it right.

3. The hole for the pin that holds the peg on is too small. Make it bigger. I used a stepped drill bit to enlarge the whole, then a regular drill bit to clear the last bit that the stepped bit couldn't get. Again, took all of a few seconds.

Once the pegs are mounted, you'll have to adjust the shift and brake levers to your liking which is very easy to do.

Part Numbers are as N0006.1AD is a kit, specifically a pair of XB footpegs.

+ N0520.1AD FOOTPEG ASSEMBLY, RIDER, LH,
+ N0521.1AD FOOTPEG ASSEMBLY, RIDER, RH,

I think this is the XB Lightning model http://www.westcoastharley-davidson.co. ... Part=36830

Sounds easy! How much difference does it make when you are riding the bike?

It take a little bit of getting used to as its the same bike but feet and legs are in different positions - some people say rear brake feels funny but this is an easy fix by adjusting the level - you can miss a few gears but as said before just a matter of getting used to it - the benefits are better as a lot less pain in the knees and back therefore longer rides not as scarey as before.

No, just order a set from West Coast Harley, as per 1st post in this thread. I've recently bought some from them - they were about £40 delivered. Had to wait a while though as they were on back order and took about 6 weeks to turn up. Well worth doing - the only thing to be aware of is that your foot is now nearly on top on the exhaust link pipe & it is quite easy to melt the heal of your boot on it if you like to ride with the ball of your foot on the pegs (I do)

An update to the Buell mod:

A side effect of lowereing the pegs is that your boot is now right on top of the link pipe: the heel of my size 12's kept touching it & subsequently melting & leaving bits of melted boot on the exhaust.

I overcame this by fitting a motorcross plate which you can set to exactly suit yourself - no more melted boots & very comfortable legs :D :D
