New foot pegs and levers recommendations
on: August 09, 2020, 08:27:02 AM
Sorry if this has already been asked, but I would like to change to short levers and some metal pegs and was after some recommendations on brands, where to purchase them I'm in Australia. Also can the shift lever be changed to come from the front facing backwards towards foot pegs instead of how it comes standard. Any help is welcomed and appreciated. Thanking everyone in advance for the help

If it's race shift (down for up) that you want:

Tighten it 'til it strips then back it off half a turn.

Depends what you want to spend on levers, theres the cheap Chinese levers options, youll find hundreds of those listed on ebay or branded levers. Personally I havent changed my levers yet but when I do Im planning on him getting a set of ASV.

As for footpegs, Ive got the Puig racing pegs and really like them. You can twist them to change the angle of your foot and they get rid of the chunky rubber which makes your feet a bit lower, giving you more leg room.

I bought a set of these and have no complaints.  https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Short-Engraved-Tyre-Valve-Caps-Clutch-Brake-Levers-Kawasaki-Z900-2017-2019-/324188311112

They are unbranded but seem well made and are adjustable. I made a slight mod to the part  that operates the clutch switch after I fitted new bars so that I could have the clutch lever lower without fouling on the switch cluster.
The older I get, the faster I was

@Cazzy_R no I don't want GP shift, just change position and where it mounts. So mounted further forward on bike facing towards foot pegs

Oh right. I guess you have your reasons.

+1 for the puig pegs. They feel so much better than stock.

@Cazzy_R Yh it feels more comfortable and easy for gear changes for me. Position suits me better as well.
@Superpig or @Robz900 could you post links you used

@superpig how much and where did you get your pegs from they look pretty cool. Also did you have to change the whole thing or just the pegs.

I got mine through a company called pyramid plastics. If you go ok the Puig website, you can see what dealers are near you.
