Unexpected flatness is comfortable
Simply put, these pegs do what they say at least for me. I'm 5'11 with a 30.5" inseam on a R1250RS. They do indeed open your bent knee just a touch. It's not Moses parting the red sea different but definitely noticeable. I was concern about them having no rubber cushion but the pegs are just wide enough that you don't feel any pressure and are actually quite pleasant to put your feet on. Wasn't too sure about the GS utility look but I'm getting used to it. BE aware they don't tell you much about removing and, more importantly, re installing the return spring. I wound up taping the ends of adjustable pliers and using them to put spring in place with one hand while gently taping the pin in with a small hammer.I don't notice very much difference operating the controls either.
