I was on this big quest to get my knee down a couple of years ago. It feels really weird at first. Feels like you're hanging down from the bike, like a kid on a monkey bar. But if you can get a friend to take a pic of you, you'll realize that you're really not off the bike much. You soon get used to it.
You have knee sliders, right? Cut that "hero bolt" to where it has a 1/4" of thread. That helps some. When I had my knee, toe, and peg down all down at once, that was fast enough for me anyway. I never graduated beyond the "slow" group", some of whom aren't all that slow by my standards. I never thought my 919 was holding me back, the other way around.
