Murphs new pegs or Knee savers
« on: October 04, 2012, 08:55:45 PM »
Seems they both accomplish similar relocation of pegs.   $46 bucks is $46 bucks I could use for other items in my shopping cart.

 I opted for Murphs' Kneesavers. I can ride all day and my knees don't get sore any more. Really wasn't sure they would work but they do. The comments were right on!!

I wasn't aware that Murph sold any pegs other than the Kneesavers for the C10.  Are you thinking of his new pegs for the C14?

Reading is not my strong point.  I saw 2 sets of Pegs with the first ones being clearly c14 so i assumed the other set was for c10.

Thanks for the reading comprehension test.

Been wondering if the Kneesavers reduces the angle of allowable lean into turns. I frequently scrape the stock pegs in turns and was thinking Kneesavers would further hamper my high speed death wish.

Not at all.  The GL1800 pegs are much thinner than the stock C10 pegs, so you don't lose any clearance.

I have to seriously disagree. With the knee savers I have to always move my foot back and make sure just my toes are on the pegs in a tight turn. I always scrape them, sometimes I hit my boots on the ground, kinda scary at 70mph

Somewhere was picture proof the lowered  GL pegs gave the same ground clearance as stock.

I'll have to measure mine against a friends connie.

Waist a sec, I just realized my bike is lower than stock. With the ZRX front end and the Hagon shock it probably sits a good inch or two lower. Again, I should probably measure that as well.

But it doesn't take much for me to scrape the pegs. When I come along a banked curve my eyes light up for joy an I punch it.

I have to agree with Eddie. It lowers them a little, but not the whole 1.5". I recently installed the Kneesavers and like them, but since then, I've touched my boot toe down a few times. Solve that by anticipating the lean and slide the #13 back up the ped or tilt the ankle.

Lost the rubber off the left kneesaver within the first month and I haven't been riding much. If you get these, check the bolts. The replacement from Bike Bandit also had to have the bolt and the step plate since they're all part of the same set of pieces on each peg. The new bolt came pre-coated with a sort of thread lock like on speed bleeders, but check your bolts anyway.  I asked Murph if he had a replacement rubber piece and he asked once if it was the rubber step. When I replied "yes" I never heard from him again. So I bought from Bike Bandit. I tried.
