As for clearance, the WR has plenty, moving the pegs down a bit isn't going to make them to lowest point on the bike... unless you are doing supermotard, it won't be an issue...
If you need the directions to do the mod, reply here or PM me...

1. Remove the pins from the pegs and take the pegs of the bike.
2. Cut the barrel part (that the pin slides through) off the bottom of the actual peg with a hacksaw or such.
3. Put the pegs back on, but with two changes. First, put the barrel part on the top of the peg when you re-install it, thus moving the pegs down and back on the existing mounts - and two. swap the springs from left to right to fit this new arrangement.
Now some people weld the barrel part back to the peg, others say it makes no difference.
Some clean the pegs and spray them up nicely before putting them back on.
You would be advised to put a bit of waterproof grease on the pin as you reassemble.
Not much to it really, just cut the barrel part off the peg neatly.

I noticed the difference in "roominess", but no clearance problems. You end up with the pegs swapped side-to-side and @ 1/2" to 1" lower and farther back. Doesn't sound like much, but like your shorter kickstarter, it makes a difference.
If you have some down-time over the winter, Levy, you can send them to me to be done if you don't have access to the equipment. Doesn't take long. Working up the courage to do the initial cut was the hardest part...

I did all these mods earlier this year and they make the bike totally different. I am now able to stand up most of the time and be mostly comfortable and I'm 6.3 with a 34" inseam. The foam and the footpeg mod make riding far less tiring as well as it is far easier to move from a seated position to a standing one.
