    Unhappy C50 Passenger foot pegs need lowered! Leg pain bigtime!

    Hello out there Suzuki C50 owners! We are now into 2 mos of loving our C50 ... However, the passenger ME, couldn't figure out why my knees/legs were hurting so BAD. Well, I measured the distance seat to peg on our son's Harley that we were "keeping warm for him" while he was in Iraq & our C50 and there is almost a two-inch difference! DUH, no wonder I'm in pain.

    What the heck can we do? Doesn't seem like much room to lower the pegs ... Is there a way to raise the seat ? ? Do they make much thicker seat? -( Boo! Hoo!

    Need to get this resolved ... we LOVE this bike otherwise.

    Thanks, Cheryl:

    You can get a topper pad. Like a buttbuffer or an air pad that will raise you about 1/2 to 1". Re-upholster the seat and get more padding put in. I think some of the aftermarket companies makes peg lowering kits. Someone like Kuryaken, etc. Check out Metric thuinder and J&P Cycles to see if they have any ideas.
    No Signature needed.

    Various passenger pegs available

    There seems to be two ways to do it quickly.

    You gain some with the Jardine pegs at:

    Several have used the Waynesville extensions at:

    with and good passenger floorboards such as the affordable J.C. Whitney at:

    http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/P...002054/c-10111

    or use the original round pegs.

    There is another alternative from cruisercustomizing .com. Cycle-istic passenger lowering kit. I have it and it works well.
    Lowers and moves forward a bit the passenger pegs. I can post a pic if you are interested. I believe they are a little less expensive than some of the others I have seen-but still not cheap.

    Passenger footpeg extensions

    I would like to add Passenger footpet extensions to my Suzuki Intruder 1400.
    I found 3 different styles at 3 different websites listed below.

    Can someone give me some insight on which style they have and if they are happy with it. I am wondering if the ones at value accessories would be flimsy?

    My wife would like footboards if possible. I wondering if the floorboards would have alot of vibration. Would the more expensive ones cause less vibration. I would appreciate any imput. Thanks

    As an FYI I recently did the left to right switch with the extender as outlined in the Volusia Rider forum. The cost was about $4 for the bolts and the black iron pipe - at my local hardware store (yes some of them still exist!). The switch took maybe 45 minutes.

    The feedback that I get is that the position is not significantly lower - perhaps an inch or so, but it does move the pegs forward and out for a more relaxed foot position.

    For the cost that may be a way to start.

    I did get the peg lowers that are all chrome. My Bride said that they helped but in lowering the pegs they make her feet farther apart. We then got us a Mustang seat and that pillion is a little taller and alot wider and it seems better for her so I removed the peg lowerers. They can be had for about $88.00 from Onidiea Suzuki.
