Passenger peg relocation

I’ve had my 2018 RGS for a couple months and I haven’t been able to figure a solution for a problem, so I thought I’d reach out and see if anyone had a suggestion. My wife has long legs and the pegs put her knees above her butt, which becomes uncomfortable in a hurry. Anyone have the same problem or have a solution to lower the pegs a bit? Seems like a simple fix, but I’m going mad not being able to find a solution.

There are adjustment holes right where the pegs mount. Lower them the whole way. If they already are or that doesn't help, get some rear floorboards on the adjustable mounts like on the CVO Ultras.



If that doesn't work, teach her to ride and you can be the passenger.

If nothing above helps, raise her up in the seat with a sheepskin and gel pad.

My wife would hang her feet off the front of the passenger boards when I had my feet on the highway pegs. She would just have to be alert that I was coming to a stop and move those feet out of the way. Of course she wore boots so the boards didn't dig into her leg.

Kuryakyn has adjustable pegs. Not sure if they're 360 degrees, but an idea.

I just installed Harley floorboards and brackets it changed the passenger footing drastically! The gf legs were so cramped with the stock locations even with the pegs in the lowest holes. The brackets are longer and the boards are wider so she has much more wiggle room

just remember, the more you move the passenger pegs, the more likely you are to put them in your way.....

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

not just their feet. depending on the op's height/inseam even the stock peg mounts can be cumbersome.

my wife likes to keep the passenger pegs on her bike so on long trips, she can reposition her feet behind her as on rear peg mounts. when i try to back her bike up, the mounts will dig into the backs of my calfs. to me, rather uncomfortable and it does interfere with moving the bike.
