Peg lowering kit!

Corbin has released a lowering kit utilizing the factory pegs by replacing the mounting bracket between frame and pegs- they claim to move peg 1 inch outward-down 1.5 inches and forward 1/2inch price is $80.00, Hope this helps!

It would be nice if they'd include a shorter "curb feeler" with that kit too. I like it, but it doesn't seem like it would be too hard to duplicate.

Kind of an interesting thing for Corbin to make. Not a seat or luggage or windshield, but still fits into their business...

I hope I don't sound retarded...Why are we lowering the pegs? Is the knee/leg angle too much in the peg's current position? I plan on lowering my whole bike for performance, but I'm not sure I understand what lowering the pegs gain us

more leg room.
would be good for long rides, but I have short legs so.....
I would think placing the pegs wider without moving out the controls might be odd?

I'm hoping mine will be here by the weekend... but from their website photos and description, they sound like good quality and well thought out. My only concern is how much hotter my heels will be once they are 1" closer to the mid pipes. I may be wrapping those mid's soon.

The heat part...I wouldn't worry about that...but the 1.5" down and 1" out...that might be problematic...might touch down too often...and your heels might hit every time you relax your feet or stand up on the pegs. I'd be curious to see how it all works out for you Matt. Please keep us posted

They e-mailed me and said thanks for the order. Production time for
the orders is taking aprox. 2-3 weeks. I will process your order today and BTW your credit card will be charged before the order is sent to production.

Corbin bites us once again. I really don't understand them... I don't think they make *anything* for stock, it's all special-order. Their customer service sucks too. I placed my order on Sunday, but have received no word on when mine might be produced or shipped. I've even waited their "two days" to request a status update, and they haven't responded to that either.

Maybe one of these days someone will buy Corbin and turn them into a proper company that actually makes product ahead of orders and can ship out when someone asks for it. They'll gladly sit on your money and ignore you... is that good service? Not in my book.

Take a deep breath, zerMATT...The whole world runs on 'just in time' manufacturing. Everything from enterprise class servers (not desktop PCs) to manufactured homes depends on an order backlog prior to ordering parts, performing machining, etc...

What about the positions of the clutch and brake levers? How's this feel when the pegs change position?

Just in time doesn't mean 2-3 weeks... and I've never had to wait more than one day for an "enterprise class" IBM or HPQ server to ship. Maybe you're talking about Dell? They generally take weeks to configure and ship, which is why I don't use them. Maybe Corbin subscribes to the Dell theory of JIT manufacturing?

I live in the word of JIT manufacturing... which for us means 98% of orders are shipped same-day, and the remainder is shipped next day. It's an attainable goal for Corbin, but apparently they chose not to.
