26" or 28"? Running a 28" all the way up is something I have not heard anyone doing. There will be more backpressure, as the angle stalls the air a bit in the full up position.

JohnH, Hopz,

Did either of you also use the shift level lowering rod, that's offered with the Suburban Machinery lowered pegs?

Anybody else?

Thanks,
Whooosh

Whoosh - Yes I got the SM turnbuckle rod. Also got the Ilium Works adjustable brake lever - very pricey but it works.

Peg Lowers and Shift Levers...

Just like everything else... everything depends on everything else... but I digress...

On my '05 RT I adjusted the shift lever by rotating the lever one or two splines up to get it where I wanted the lever to be. Easy project. Took maybe 10 minutes.

On the Wethead funny thing is I did not need to make any adjustment at all.

Your actual mileage may vary....
