I fitted the SW Motech adjustable footrests yesterday and christened them today. They have two height settings and I put them in the lower position and with the seat in high position and without my Airhawk I ride for about 80 minutes with no pain in my knees. The pedal has a surface area of around four times that of the standard rest and a very substantial mounting hinge. The part number is art.no.: FRS.01.011.10201/S. These are not the evo pegs and were a moderately reasonable £98.00 or so delivered. They would appear to be a massive improvement and were the same model that fitted the XRV650. It took a little bit of getting used to and I was having to make the conscious effort to lift and place my foot clear of the rest when coming to a halt. First of all if I did not make a clear lift first the boot seemed to almost stick to the rubber insert on the peg. Overall happy with my purchase. Amazing how a small drop of 15mm can make such a difference to riding comfort.

Fast and Easy The order was perfect in every detail. orthofeet had no way of knowing that I have used a heel support or Viconic shoes for years, so all of the instructions were really nice but I didn't need them I was looking for comfy slippers not slip ons with no back and I found them. Will be buying from these folks again. I'll be happy. I've ordered three pairs already from other dealers and had to send them back because they didn't fit my feet

Well Wojtkuuu, welcome to the Forum.

Um, that is a lunchbox let down for sure. You didn't even say, " ... bummer ... " in the video. That is some restraint.

Geez, that foot peg almost looks like it has its unfair share of "white metal".

Good afternoon, at least here, in Central Europe. I'm sorry for my bad manners. No 'bummer' because I was lying under all of my bikes to many times to make it an occasion for any celebration. Getting back to the footpeg. It had snapped definitely too easy for its price. Keep it in mind.

Wow yeah. That is crazy how easy that snapped. That video almost looks like a scene for a scene like an off I had in SD a few years back. I had a KTM 1190 at the time with Black Dog Cycle Works pegs. The only thing that was damaged or bruised was my ego. Pegs no problem. :)

That had to be a fun ride out :(

My ego is fine. I'm aware of my poor skill set and I'm working on it. On that occasion I've learned another lesson. K60 Scout sucks on wet country roads, as well as my skills :D

Part of the injury to my ego probably came from the fact that by the smell, it was evident that there was a high concentration of bovine byproduct mixed with the water :)

I have heard that about the K60 scouts. I have never tried them myself.
