Knight Design Lowered Footpegs just ordered a set 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. Work GREAT.

Did either of you have to adjust shift lever or brake lever ?

I adjusted my shifter (easy) and my brake. Using all of the brake pushrod available worked just right for me. YMMV

Sorry I missed this post earlier.. Yes I use them. They were the first things I installed.

No scrapes, no issues at all. More comfort, and I am a short guy. Did not have to adjust the levers...

I have the adjustable verholen pegs. For me and the passenger. I liked the adjustable aspect. I knew once I got the correct position I wouldn't move them, but getting them correct in the first place was why I wanted the adjustability.

I rode with them a month or so, then adjusted them a little and they are now perfect for me. I didn't change the levers at all. I have no issues with that. I have to bend my ankle a little for shifting but its not a big deal.

For the passenger I needed them to raise instead of lower. The back of her knees were hitting the front corner of the cases. Raising her feet/knees eliminated that, and also allows her better leverage to push back when she needs to. She is 5-0. I am 5-8.
