moving footpegs

I was/ am considering selling my superhawk...


but... that being said.. my only gripe is that the footpegs have a terrible placement, and messes with my knee while riding- even though I am young.. I have a had a few surgeries in my one knee. and longer rides, are not comfortable.


I thought I heard of some changes that can take place to fix this.. but.. I am not sure what to search for in the forum.


if I could make the bike more comfortable, I would have less (zero) reason to sell it.


thanks

You can buy adjustable rotating footpegs, or search for buell footpeg conversion.

Or you can rotate the stock rearset up or down. I have mine down, getting old.

There was a suggestion here for a mod that helped me after leg surgery and staples limiting my knee flex and ability to change gear and that involved fitting a ZX9 footpeg which gave an extra inch or two in drop.
