A happy pillion means a happy driver and this simple product goes a long way toward making everyone smiling. It's a solution to a problem that crops up quite a bit, especially for long legged passengers. The stock footpegs are too high for comfort.
Check out this passenger footpeg extension made by H.A.C Products that lowers the peg about three inches using the stock peg and mounting bracket. Rather than provide a specific online outlet for the product (because there are several and prices vary) I'd suggest you do a Google search for "8734 passenger footpeg extension." 8734 is the H.A.C product number which fits Vulcan Classic 800/1500/1600 and Mean Streak.
