Dropped/Lowered Pegs for Passenger?

My wife loves riding with me, but the passenger ergos are fairly aggressive, even for her smaller, 5'5" frame.

She feels really cramped after a half hour or so, especially in the legs. Looking at the bike, it seems like a slightly lower peg (1" or so) could fit and might ease some of the discomfort.

Does anyone know of a dropped/lowered peg that will fit the passenger mounts?

I don't know anyone with first hand experience so you might have to take one for the team and tell us how they work.

I did see this done once years ago, and the biggest complaint being the rubber from the heel of the passengers boots baking to the muffler and being a PIA to clean off.

Yeah, as Vic alluded to, the mufflers are the problem.

It appears I may have a little more clearance with the DanMoto cans compared to the stock mufflers.

Also, I found these on Amazon/eBay: https://www.amazon.com/Black-Extensi...205927&sr=8-27

They come in 25mm and 40mm lengths.

I might be able to move her feet forward and down just a tad, inline with the angle of the can, and keep her off the mufflers still
