    Hey Guys,........I still sell the Buell packages,..........but currently waiting on a backorder to be released. My supplier says 2/1/14 as the release date. As far as Knight Designs are concerned,.....I called them a little over 2 years ago to see if they had interest to machine pegs to my specs for the Busa. They were supposed to get back to me with pricing and we come to a contracted agreement. WELL,.........over 2 years later,.........still no phone call. But I do see them selling pegs as WE had discussed. IMAGINE THAT?? The way I see it..........bad things will come to those who deserve it!!

    Alicia here from Knight Design.. we make the pegs that Boo wrote about, and I am the lady he spoke to. Some info about our parts:
    - We started our business in 2007; we owned a Buell XB and didn't like the cheap cast foot pegs it had. They snap too easily - Buell owners regularly complain that they bump a peg going through the garage door and it snaps. We designed our pegs to be the same dimensions as the stock Buell pegs - but we machine them out of high quality aluminum (6061-T6).
    - Over the years we've used our base design foot peg and changed the machining on the mount to fit quite a few bike models, including Hayabusas. Our pegs are not modified to fit, they are machined to fit from the start. For instance, Buell pegs have an 11mm hole for mounting. Hayabusas have an 8mm hole. Our pegs are made with the correct size hole and other mounting geometry.
    - We did, indeed, have a friendly conversation with Joe a couple years back, but prefer to sell our parts ourselves. Our design already existed at the time. No information changed hands, no money changed hands, and there was no contract of any sort. There is no coincidence that our parts look similar in outer dimensions - his are Buell foot pegs; ours were originally designed from our Buell foot pegs.
    - We make 1 inch and 2 inch lowered foot pegs for Hayabusa models, as well as many other makes and models. Check us out of you're looking for parts - our prices are very reasonable for quality machined parts, they fit and work great, and we have top notch lead times, quality, and customer service.

    Do the Buell pegs cause problems with aftermarket exhausts such as the Brocks? Any other issues such as clearance during a lean?

    Thanks,

    I can vouch that clearance in corners is no problem with this mod.

    Thanks for the feedback. I know this has all been discussed before but the search function does not like short words such as Pegs and Mod.

    With the 1 inch lowered foot pegs, does the back of you boot ride on the stock exhaust system? When I look at how my foot sits on the peg while riding, it is angled down in the front so it should not be a problem. Just wanted to get some feedback on actual use before i order a set of Buell pegs. Thanks!

    I realize how old this post is but do you still make them? I am going to figure out how to send you a message as well. Thanks.

    Yes I do like them, but I wanted to try something other than the buell pegs, sorry Joe. I just wanted to try them.
    Yes, for the Knights, they shipped quick and were at my door in 3 days, yes, they installed in minutes using the oem spring. I am satisfied and these will be on my bike for years to come. And the biggest reason, I have seen the buell pegs snap on fall over. Not what I wanted.
