I can't say I have any experience of that particular kit,but I did have a Sammy Miller version on my old TY250 several years ago.It used to bend quite easily until I welded some webs in the back of the brackets.I guess they are all alot better now, but my point is they are very simple to make,my current TY250 has homemade ones on it and they are very good.(Not made by me,but I've modded them a bit) I'd just buy some new pegs and make the brackets up exactly how you want them.

My question is specific to the TY175 and the TYOffroad kit. I already have lowered rearset pegs on mine, but it's limited how much you can lower them on the 175 because of its setup on the RHS. The TYOffroad kit looks (in pics on the web) to be unique in how they've done it so I was hoping to get feedback on how they feel when riding & perhaps have a good look at how they're fitted.

John I'm sure that someone I ride with has one of those kits fitted but can't remember who it is (very frustrating) :?

No not Tim Stone, but a memory of seeing them has just come back and I'm in the process of making sure it is who I think

Are these the ones you mean? They are on the bike but hasn't really been ridden yet. Finished it a little while ago and it still looks too nice to ride. Also I'm not a great rider anyway.
