Hayabusa Buell Footpeg mod!

It's raining like a bastard here, so this is a good day to pull this off. This is a pretty common mod the the Hayabusa; Buell Lightning pegs give you something like 1.75" drop so you're a bit less crunched up on the bike. You have to remove .10" from the footpeg's overall width, so some whittlin' on the mill is in order. .050" per side.

That's the hardest part. Once that's done, you have to make up some bushings to take up the difference between the Busa vs. Buell pin diameter, but that's pretty much it. You can even reuse the Busa's footpeg springs. Now I have to adjust the controls and try to keep my heels off the exhaust...
Check the difference in drop (and looks, man or those OEM pegs ugly).

Thanks to Rivet for this tip!!
