Let us know how its works out...I need to do something to help my damaged knees get some relief....hope it worksI may be able to answer my own question. Looking at the website where I bought the lowering blocks (MotoWerk), I see now they also offer an accessory adjusting nut to get the pedal even lower. I ordered it and will see soon how that works out.
Give me about a week to receive and install the adjuster nut and I'll report back. Just looking at the pic of the nut, I can already see it will help quite a bit just because the length of the nut is considerably shorter than the stock clevis.Let us know how its works out...I need to do something to help my damaged knees get some relief....hope it works
If you mean risers...then, yes! I added Murphs' risers. The only issue there was needing to remove the locator pins to get a better angle on the controls. Between the lowering blocks and the risers (and my new Sargent seat), the touring capability has been greatly enhanced.Hornblower..have you also changed the handle bar design?
Installed the brake lever adjustment nut today. The design of this nut does allow some additional adjustment but, in my case, I also had to slightly shorten the threaded shaft to make room for the needed adjustment. The instructions from Motowerk did mention that might be necessary. Of course, I had to also adjust the brake light switch again (no surprise there) but, in the end, all worked out just great. It seems to me that most riders ordering these lowering blocks might as well order the special adjustment nut to go along with it.Give me about a week to receive and install the adjuster nut and I'll report back.

Motowerk says it drops straight down but, considering the peg mount is angled, it appears to move the peg slightly forward as well. We're not talking about much movement at all though. Here's a pic off the Motowerk site:Glad its working out Hornblower.....Does the kit drop the peg position directly
down and keep the front to back location the same?
No doubt about it. However, for my moderate spirited riding, I don't THINK it's going to present a problem (I still see chicken strips on the tires ). I haven't even come close to the peg feelers with the pegs in stock position so if I touch down now that will just be an indicator that I've gone far enough.The problem with the lower blocks is you lose ground clearance.
That could definitely happen . I have a faster group of riding buddies based in the Western NC mountains so I'll be putting on the Angels before I join up with them. Until then, I plan to get a bit more life out of the stock tires.When you put on the new Pirelli Angel GTs maybe you'll find a bit more lean angle...
As far as knee angle goes, I don't feel a lot of difference. No doubt, this mod helps to add a bit more leg room but don't expect a big change. I guess I would do it again but it is a fair amount of trouble to install and it isn't cheap.So as a tall guy wanting to get himself a bit more leg room, and now that you have it completed, what's your overall opinion of the lowering pegs? Worth the money and effort? kinda worth it? not worth it?
