Rant OVER
Wow, that’s quite the rant!

I don’t know if you’re complaining about someone’s highway pegs or Murph’s rider footpeg lowering brackets, however I do know that Murph’s brackets do not come with instructions but installation is pretty easy to figure out.

If it was possible I would never buy anything that was Chinese made. I always try to buy “local”, by which I mean from a Canadian or American manufacturer.

I also like buying from small specialty shops. It is especially nice to be able to pick up the phone and talk to the owner/designer/fabricator. I had a real nice chat with Murph. He speaks perfect English with a wonderful southern accent.

The Highway pegs I speak of are Giruard ?? /..and you said it yourself /" figure it out " ..again ..how tough is it to type out some instructions that dont leave a bunch of people ( this thread ) discussing how to make it work?
Yes I will 10000% figure it out ..I went to automotive tech school in the past and continue to work on my own stuff and other peoples.
the point is customer service ..Murphy gave ZERO by not giving a 1 or two paragraph write up and tossing it in the sandwich bag along with the part he put so much effort into creating
One of my friends just bought an FJR .. not sure I will recommend either company for his farkeling ( and he too is great with a wrench )

That's probably a good idea, especially if one is installing peg-lowering brackets. Cheaper too!

Given my left knee issues, if I had been unable to obtain the lowering brackets I was considering selling the bike: it was that painful and limiting to ride without the brackets. I envy those of you (younger, shorter, injury-free) who can ride without them, as I did from 2006-2012, however for my old, long, injured leg (knee) these brackets are perfect. Bit of a work of art too: beautifully machined with a glossy finish. Given my research I’m betting they will fit all generations and models of FJR except possibly the auto-clutch (or whatever Yamaha called it) version.

The FJR Lowering Brackets are now listed on the Murphs’ Kits website at murphskits.com . The price is up a bit at $95.40USD as is the shipping to Canada (now $30USD) however I think they’re still a bargain. These brackets are likely the best accessory I will ever add to the FJR for as I said, without them I might have had to sell the bike.

PS to my Canadian friends: The good news is that the exchange rate has improved, to 1.33 from 1.39 when I made my purchase, and remember too that there is no Duty or PST/GST/HST.
I have them on my 2008 AE the USA model of "auto clutch". Gary sold me mine nice guy to deal with.

Bend straight ends of cotter pins straight to slide back through the hole, pull looped end of cotter pin out, slide out peg, install appropriate side lowering bracket, reinstall cotter pin, bend cotter pin ends over. Next install foot peg into lowering peg, install bolt and nut.

Next remove brake lever pinch bolt, rotate brake lever TWO ( 2 ) nothes and reinstall

I haven't done shifter side yet, but so far all it took was some common sense, looking at the machine, and coming up with a solution. Spent about 3 minutes and I figured it out. Hope this helps
