Hello all - I was looking for some assistance! 

I am looking for a modification to lower the rider footpegs on my 1986 K100RS. 

Are the any products in the market - or perhaps any easy hacks which I can apply?

Many thanks

mappedFA

I saw this on a k1 - should work on an RS as well - definitely a hack

Nope. It hits the silencer. BTTT (been there, tried that) and puzzled out just about every easy combination in between. Always the silencer gets in the way. Standing-off the footpeg hangers and then lowering the pegs will work, but that was too ugly even for me.

I have these fitted to my k1 - these may work better on an RS as per Dai's comment. I picked them up on eBay a few years ago.

This is exactly what I am looking for! What should I be looking for on ebay - anything specific (outside of "lower footpegs" Haha!)

Thank you!

The search term K100 lower footpegs will give you some products to consider. Laughing

Would you need to look for a longer shift lever to go with that?

I used them on my k1 which has an adjustable  linkage for the shift lever but I did have to modify the brake pedal side (cut and welded the pedal). I have not modified my RS's.

Maybe mappedFA is looking for something like this.

mappedFA is probably trying to open the angle between the thigh and calf; that rearset might close it up more in addition to creating cost for a different rear brake master cylinder.

It could be that increasing the seat's thickness would help if all else fails.

Actually if you made a proper spacer to fit between the two posts ( to spread the stress ) this would work fine if you needed them that much lower.

The lower you go the more you reduce the turning radius.

I also have these MV low footpegs on my K1. Good stuff, well designed, quite expensive. I did not have to modify the brake pedal
On my K100 side car, I'm thinking about a plate that would bolt on the mounting holes on the gear box that could allow to lower the whole footpeg plate. I don't need ground clearance as a solo bike needs, and the exhaust should not be a problem as it passes under the engine.
It may enlarge a bit the place for the feet, but that should not be a big problem, it's even an advantage on a side car to have a good position in corners.
