Rear set risers

How does using a set of relocated pegs (riser plate or aftermarket) affect slow speed riding? I think I could really appreciate them on the highway, but it would seem that it may make it too difficult to balance slow speed u-turns ect.

If anything, I would expect the low speed stuff would be easier, as you're centre of gravity is lowered.

I'd say it doesn't affect slow speed riding in the slightest.

I was thinking of really lowered pegs, but slightly lower, with a plate, yes, agree with you.

Lowered? Raising the pegs with a riser plate should move your center of gravity up, not down.. Up and back is what I am after..

This man speaks the truth.

It would move your center of gravity such a small amount you would never notice it.

If you ate a big cookie before you rode would probably affect you COG about the same.

What the pegs do is give you more ground clearance.

Maybe Rossi could tell you the difference, but I doubt highly anybody that rides for fun could ever tell any difference at all in handling at virtually any speed.
