2005 Concours
« on: January 09, 2012, 10:52:56 pm »
Am trying to decide on which peg lowering kit to buy. Murph's, Gen-Mar or Larry's.  Also some highway pegs. Or crash bars. Any advise from those who have tried them.

The ONLY ones to consider are Murph's kneesavers - Trust me on this! :beerchug: Steve

I started out with the GenMars.  Didn't like them much, but they were the only option at the time.  I was a beta tester for Murph, and I still have the KneeSavers on my bike.  Murph's site has some comparison pics that I took comparing the GenMars with the KneeSavers.  To me, those pictures say it all.

I also have tip-over bars that I purchased from Murph.  Also love them.  They've paid for themselves several times already.  Plus they give me a good place to mount highway pegs and auxiliary lights.

I have the Genmar kit and like 'em. They will put your feet a bit more forward and quite a bit farther out in the airstream. The farther out in the airstream is why I like 'em. Helps with the heat.

Caveat: You will have to get used to the pigeon towed angle to use the foot controls. Takes quite a while to acclimate, and some folks never due.

See the pics on Murphs' site to help you decide. Linky:

I will not buy anything from Motorcycle Larry's on principle.

One advantage to Murph's (which I realy don't need) is that the Wing pegs are much thinner so the ground clearance is not appreciably reduced.  The Genmars using the stock connie pegs and wider spacing does reduce peg to ground distance.
Well...even if you fall on your face you're still moving forward.
