Title: RTLC Rider footrest lowering kit from Amazon.co.uk
Post by: Steve398 on 2021-11-27 17:25:51
Found what must be a direct copy of the Wunderlich riders footrest lowering kit for the 2014-21 LC on Amazon for less than £60 instead of Wunderlich’s Nippy Norman price of £179…. Has to be worth a punt!

Having received this kit there is no doubt it is an absolute copy, with exactly the same parts included, right down to the washers.  Even the fitting instructions are a direct copy from Wunderlich with blank spaces where the Wunderlich title and emblem would be, in all other aspects identical… except of course the price which is about 1/3 of the German Co.


You pay your money, you make your choice…

Question how would you know if it's made of the same stuff. Is the metal of good quality. I wouldn't be able to tell.

Would I know one from another? Probably not, it's nicely finished and the bolts etc. look good. 


The thought also occurred to me, but there is no obvious discernible faults to my limited view or knowledge. I was trying to think of circumstances when they're likely to come under strain, but the best I could think of is when I lift myself out of the saddle for a sleeping policeman. I'll bounce around on them a bit the next time I'm in the garage.

I'm new to the bike, as only picked her up yesterday.  2014 RTP, its not an LC though, its the last of the TC's.  I'm presuming these would not work on my bike?  I need to get right into the forum and start learning.  This is my 1st RT of many bikes :)

Hi,
at a guess I’m going for no, probably not suitable. The description is 2014-21.

NN would seem to confirm this, Wunderlich rider footpeg lowering - R1200RT (to 2013) (nippynormans.com) (https://www.nippynormans.com/r1200rt-2010-to-2013/wunderlich-rider-footpeg-lowering-r1200rt-to-2013)

Does anyone know if Wunderlicht manufacture themselves, or is this the same product from the same factory without going to Wunderlicht first?

I would strongly suggest it's a straight CNC copy because I can't see Wunderlich being happy about being undercut by their own manufacturing company.


However with the amount of stuff produced in China for other companies nowadays who knows? I have a faithfully copied Chinese fender extender that cost me about £25 instead of £59, all that's missing is the sticker.

Fitted yesterday, because the kit includes a different mount for the rear brake it has the effect of lowering that too so no appreciable difference on operation. Gear change adjusted with no real problem.


First ride out today, nothing fell off or broke.  Minor adjustment to gear change but it all felt natural and good.

I eventually got round to fitting mine yesterday, perfect fit.The hardest part was getting the right side pin out,it was in there very tight.Not been out with them fitted but can see I'm going to have to extend the levers some how.
Thanks to Steve for the link and putting up the video, was really helpfull👍
