Just wondering if anyone knows of any products on the market to make my bike more pillion friendly with regards to foot pegs and my wife not being scrunched up like a ball on the back.


I tried the air hawk I bought for pillion and tried the rear pegs and the rider pegs from the pillion seat. By using the rider pegs, it was actually pretty damn comfy! Anything I can do about this???

Hi Phil, l made some for the rear of the Busa only dropped them 50mm, lm told it has made a massive difference in comfort.

Found this on the M&P site that might be of interest.

Cheers Chris.


I saw these, I don't think 5cm is going to cut it for touring purposes.


I've googled and can't seem to find anything so if nobody knows of any longer extensions, I might look into making some modified ones that attach to the rider heel plates...

I think you will be surprised just how much effect there is. Sue could do no more than an hr on the Busa before the mod was fitted before she complained of numbness and lost circulation. She now can go for hrs no problem before we all need a pit stop for coffee and fuel.

Interesting...


Ok, I'll bear that in mind before I start making some DIY extensions.
