I went ahead and ordered the over sized pegs from the site sponsor. Almost $80 but I'll be standing up a lot and want to feel secure about the pegs under me. I installed them today with no hassles.

Many of you have these on your bike and I'm curious what you do with the shortened and more cramped distance to the shift lever. If you loosen the shift lever, is it adjustable up and down. Thanks

This is a great question, and the reason I have not gotten a set for my bike. I will be watching with interest as to how others have dealt with this.

I haven't noticed it made any difference on my bike. No clearance issues at all.

No problems here either. You can adjust the shift level up/down with the barrel nut. Access to the shift level is also influenced by footwear. As for the wide pegs, I regard them as a safety perk. If you're trail riding and standing on the pegs, improved grab between pegs and sole is important. On the small OEM pegs I've had my foot slip off which isn't good. The small pegs also create a pressure point on the bottom of your foot which gets uncomfortable. Ride safely.

Thanks Muniac. Question---in the picture in the oem parts the barrel nut you referred to seems like it would move the shift lever forward or back horizontally. #15 on the chart is where the whole assembly rests on the spline and might be where you'd have to adjust for up or down---Is that correct?. Seems like where the lever attaches to the shift rod there should also be a spline so you could rotate it a notch at a time up or down.

No, the barrel nut moves the shift lever up or down, by changing the distance to the pivot point. A linkage like this provides far finer adjustability than jumping a notch on the spline. My 2014 F700GS has the latter, and I wish it had an adjustable linkage like the XT225.


Don't fix it if it ain't broke, don't break it if you can't fix it.

Well then Muniac was right, but I got confused looking at the parts catalog's sketching of it. Selden thanks for chiming in to confirm that.

No problems as those diagrams aren't always clear with details. That barrel nut is exactly like a turnbuckle with left and right threads plus locks nuts. Just make sure the threads are synced and enough remains in the female portions to provide strength. Ride safely.

I now wear thick sole leather work boots for riding. They also have non slip soles. I needed to raise the shift lever a little. I moved it one spline on the shift shaft. If you use the turnbuckle linkage to adjust the shift lever, it changes the distance between the lever pivot point and the shift shaft, which can cause shifting problems. The angles between the end of the rod, the vertical part that attaches to the shift shaft, and the vertical part of the shift lever should be exactly 90 degrees. Lengthening or shortening the rod will change that angle.


The above is my opinion. Your mileage may vary.
