Installation guidance on Murph's knee savers.
« on: November 05, 2016, 11:08:22 pm »
Hey guys,

Ok guys first and foremost let me say hello, its been a while. Here's my situation on this install/Murph's knee savers. I have limited mechanical ability and would like to install the knee savers. No instructions included with product and can't find anything on the board.. Can someone provide guidance or point me in the right direction. I'm anxious to see if they make a difference and my knees are begging for relief. Thanks in advance.

Mo :)

Installing the Kneesavers is pretty straight forward. There's a clip ring on the pin holding the original peg on. Remove the ring, then the pin and the old one is off. Now use the same hardware to hold the Kneesavers. You won't have a spring to hold them down, but gravity takes care of that.
NOW, check your manual to adjust the shift and brake levers to the new height. Don't forget to also adjust the brake light switch as well, or you'll have full time brake lights. I realized it after about a week when I did mine.
