The original riding position of the R 1200 RT-LC is not universally comfortable for all riders (tall riders have different requirements than smaller riders). As part of our "Ergo" program we provide the components for each rider to "fine-tune" the riding position and posture to his/her own personal needs. The rider set will move the footrests ~ 30 mm (1.18") down and slightly forwards. The change in footrest position will increase the knee and hip angle, a benefit especially when touring. Better blood circulation and less cramps will make a full-to-empty tank ride much more enjoyable. The kit is made of CNC machined and silver anodized high quality aluminum alloy and comes with all components needed. TÜV tested and approved.
When lowering the footpegs, the gear shifter and rear brake lever need to also be lowered accordingly. Our kit includes the hardware necessary to lower the rear brake. The shifter is lowered by adjusting the shift linkage.
Note: Fitting any footrest lowering kit may cause reduced cornering clearance. Please ride accordingly!
