My recent four hour ride to Chattanooga illuminated that angle to me. Thanks for the write up/pointers.I installed the JNS Engineering footpeg lowering brackets. Wish I could say it was a simple bolt-on, but nothing is ever that simple. In my case, the frame brackets had the threads stripped at some point in the past, and a PO drilled them out and retapped for M8 bolts. So I had to drill out the JNS brackets to 13/32” to allow the bolts to pass through.
After I got them on, i tested the seating position, and I like the new foot position because it opens up the thigh-to-lower back angle. The stock position is good to start with, but this is better.
Someone else reported recently that the JNS footpeg brackets did not fit with the SW Motech crash bars and center stand. I have both and did not have any interference problems.
One downside: the repositioned foot pegs block access to the infamous lower pivot bolt. Since I’m still working on getting that out, I put the stock brackets back on until I get that bolt out and regreased and back in.
