Lowering pegs /slip on exhaust
« on: March 04, 2018, 07:07:49 pm »
I put AST lowering pegs on the 14, ( yes I am aware of the risk buying with AST) ,I plan on buying a after market slip on soon, the website says some midpipes on the after market pipes may pose a problem with the lowering peg brackets clearing the pipe,

My question is if you have the AST brackets and a slip on which do you have and did it pose a problem with installation or which do you have that did not pose a problem with installation!


Thanks

I have the AST lowering pegs kit and a 2 Brothers carbon fiber can.  No problems with installation or fitting of either.

I liked the 2 Brothers CF so much I bought 2 for my ZX-14R. I really like the looks and sound.  When I had the OEM muffler, I got tired of my friends waiting to start their bikes so I could start my C-14 and hear it running.  Otherwise I sometimes had to look at the tach... ::)  Big bonus was that it eliminated lots of ugly weight as well! :great:

Have you considered the Area-P slip-on?  Looks and sounds fantastic and the customer service is outstanding!

I had the pegs lowered and ran a 2 Brothers pipe. The only problem was the wife's toes got warm so I wrapped the pipe in front of the peg.

FTB, are you referring to lowering the rider's pegs or the passenger's?
My passenger pegs are {AST} lowered. Work fine with a Area P Slip on.

That was the passenger pegs. I’m now using Murph’s lowered rider pegs with a full Area P system. No problems.

FTB530, I also have the AST lowered pegs. I was hoping to use a Delkevic slip on but after messaging a guy here that had the Delkevic without the AST pegs, he measured the distance between the pivot point of the brake linkage (which is the lowest point that would contact the pipe) and the stock pegs and his did not have the 1 3/8" of clearance that was needed. I didn't want to get into having the pipe tube mashed down 1/2" so it would have proper clearance. Please let us know how this works out for you.
In theory, practice and theory are the same. In practice, they aren't. Without data you are just another guy with an opinion.

I haven’t ordered a pipe yet, sent a email to Delkavic today. And trying to find out if the CS 1 will work, so far one person told me they have the lowering brackets and a Two Brothers slip on, May end up with that pipe!

Yes I have looked at them too, there are three or four slip ones I looked at  , I am not set on a specific one. I am just trying to find information if anyone has installed a slip on with the AST lowering brackets before I make a purchase! I will keep the stock can if I can’t find one that will work with the lower pegs in place,

I have a Delk and contacted AST regarding their lowering bracket and AST recommended against it with the Delk.  It's too bad because I like their solution best.  Ended up going with Murph's lower pegs and they work fine with the Delk exhaust.

I have a set of Murph’s pegs too, may end up swapping them out when I decide which pipe I want or which pipe will work with either lowering parts!

Sorry can’t help with AST.  Plenty of room with Murph’s pegs and Area-P slip-on.

 I have the Two Brothers on the way already and the AST brackets mounted, BUT I also have a set of Murph’s lowering pegs in waiting if I need to change them around!

Sorry, don't have AST lowering pegs, but I have the ProjectD lowering bracket w/ a Two Brothers slip-on. That setup worked for me. Sorry, can't help with yours.

Thanks TimR.  I wasn't trying to be rude. It was just hard to follow what is going on in two simultaneous threads.  :beerchug:

I have the AST lowering pegs kit and a 2 Brothers carbon fiber can.  No problems with installation or fitting of either.
Well it didn’t work out for me today, the brake cable contacts the pipe, I’m going to loosen it all up tomorrow and see if I can twist the midpipe and get any where, if not off come the AST parts!

It fits really close on mine but it works.  No problems over the last 2+ years.  Maybe put a washer or two inside the lowered peg to offset it out a bit?
