Guys, this might be worth some investigation. Someone used Versys footpegs on their Concours 14. Notice how much lower they are than our Ninja pegs.

They keep the anti vibration rubber. The extra width is more comfortable. These are more like dirt bike sized, in width. After a few minutes, you'll wonder why all pegs are not wide.


These may be the SW Motech brand? I think I'll order a set for the big bike if I can find them. This is like floorboard meets footpegs, which would be excellent on the long rides. The extra width is......I don't know how to describe it. Wide footpegs feel more safe and secure, I guess? I'm failing, but maybe like a pair of leather gloves you have broken in, yourself. It's that.

Are these pretty much plug and play for the N1K? I lowered mine but these look more comfortable.

They should be, but it doesn't look like they are easy to find.

You should invest in a new rear shock, or buy a set of lowering links. I know that makes no sense.

If you have the links, or a shock that allows you to adjust it's length, you can raise the back end about an inch, at the tail light area. That's just a few millimeters longer for the shock.

When you do that, the bike sort of rotates under you. At least it feels like it does. The handling is more accurate, and it also feels like the pegs are lower, and more towards the rear. The shock works better, go figure, but the entire bike feels better when you do this
