The buel pegs are drilled out , and he installs a steel sleeve to accept the small pin of the Suzuki .
Here it is. He was last logged on in May. https://www.hayabusa.org/forum/threads/foot-pegs-lowered.179032/page-2#post-3087624i did a search and didnt find the vendor i did find a youtube video with a link but i click the link and i do not have permission to view it
The busa pegs have 8mm holes and the buell 11mm, so sleeves are needed too. Good luck on your search and let us know how you like the other brand if you decide to go with those.thx if i dont hear from him i may try that knight set or go see if i can find a bench grinder somewhere
I went ahead and pulled the trigger on the Knight Design Gen 1 set. I initially bought the 2 3/8" set but after trying to install them the pegs kept touching the exhaust mid pipes. I then sanded down the area of the peg that was touching the mid pipe and got the right side to fit fine but the left side required more sanding and I stopped when it was appearent the left side peg might be too weak structurally for weight if I kept sanding.
I contacted Knight Design told them the problem. I had also sent them pictures of it before I did any sanding showing where they were touching the metal stock mid pipes. I also told them since the pegs do not fit correctly and they are useless for a Gen 1 Hayabusa that I was attempting to sand them down to see if they would fit and then I told them the results when done. They were not sure why or what happened since they are supposed to be bolt ons. Also my exhaust is completely stock so definitely no issue from that.
End result I sent those back and had them send me their 1 3/8" pegs for the Gen 1. They did in those fit perfect and are a lot more comfortable than the factory pegs were for me.

I installed them with no issues. I had to adjust my brake and gear lever. Also my brake light.So my question is
Has anyone installed the 2" lower Knights design pegs on a Gen 2 with stock exhaust?
Do they hit the stock exhaust? Any serious issues?
If they do hit i will probably have to go with the lesser drop . But i surely do need to lower them somewhat
I thought so too until I tried them. No vibes, no slipping. Great on my knees.I know this is an older thread but can anyone tell me how the buell pegs are compared to the stock ones without the rubber. I want to get the the buells but the no rubber option is kinda a turn off. Thanks
They were fine just much lower. Your feet really don't notice rubber or not. I had them but didn't like the placement since i had a cage at the time. They worked well under all conditions. Will say the Knights look much nicer & stronger not so light duty. However I don't think the 2 &3eights would ever fit dont think they measured right on that one but the shorter ones are about perfect. Streetfighterinc.com looked good as well and seem to be adjustable up or down from pictures. Would go with either one before the Buell just on quality.I know this is an older thread but can anyone tell me how the buell pegs are compared to the stock ones without the rubber. I want to get the the buells but the no rubber option is kinda a turn off. Thanks
