Couple of questions
Ordered these blocks, haven't installed them yet,,.
1) Any concerns with the pegs hitting now that they are lower (I haven't had an issue previously)
2) I didn't get the brake light bolt, thought I read it wasn't necessary, will I need it?
3) They have a disclaimer on the weight capacity,,. Can you get away with standing on the peg to mount the bike?
I weigh 195LBs,,.
"The lowering foot pegs blocks are quite stout, so they can take up to 185 Lb load each; however, standing with your full body weight on one foot peg is not recommended. All installation hardware is included."
I lowered my foot pegs 2 years ago. I've not dragged a peg on the pavement yet. I even did an advanced riding class at the DCTC track in Minnesota [ https://www.ridezars.com/
] and leaned my N1K to the edge of the tires, and did not scrape a peg.
I recall buying the brake light bolt and installing it (I think). I needed it to keep the brake pedal the same distance down from the footpeg. I wanted to keep the "angle" of my right foot in a comfortable place, and still be able to use the rear brake without really thinking about it. I recall that the brake bolt was relatively inexpensive, so you may want to buy it, in case you need it.
The weight capacity statement is to cover the manufacturer in case of liabilities. I'm not worried about the strength of my MotoWerk peg lowerers.
We are riding liter bikes. Liter bikes are not generally ridden by those who wish to live a risk free life. ;o)
BTW, according to the experts at Motorcycle Consumer News (US), on average, riding a motorcycle is 19 times more dangerous than driving a car.
