The highway pegs came yesterday so I've fitted them this morning, I've not been on the bike due to the weather but sat on it and pretended, they feel quite comfortable and should enable me to move my legs around for a change of position on a long ride, No issue's with the air box either so I must have bandy legs

Looks real nice

How much?
Where from?
Does that airfilter cause an issue?
How far out from the radiator are the pegs situated (horizontally, not to the guard itself) ? Just wondered if my guards will be OK with them, they look like they stick out nice and wide.

You have got a lot to answer for Sim.
My Mrs will kill me if she finds out out I've been buying for the bike again, which I am about too.

Just had another practise in the garage (without making engine sounds this time ) and I think they'll be very comfy especially with apes on

Smart job Sim - nice find. I love the 'feet forward' riding position I get with my forward controls... and I guess you'll be "even more forward" with those.

Just been looking at the design of these, if you have really long legs you could have the foot rest on the other side of the bars instead.

Sim, Just got the pegs through today and for the money they seem to be good value. I haven't fitted them yet, I will do that at the weekend.
However at first glance they don't seem to have the ability to stay in the upright position. Is that right or do I still have my bed head on?

Hi Dave, when you tighten the lock nut up they seem to hold up on there own, It's probably metal to metal but only a slight resistance is needed to hold them upright, I might try putting two this stainless washers between the peg and holder so any abrasion is behind the inside and out of sight.

I had an hour or so on the bike today going to the garage and back with slight detours, First time riding since fitting the Highway pegs, What a difference ! I loved riding with my feet forward and it feels so right Very Happy £24 Bargain !

Ain't that the truth, I had a short ride at the weekend and loved it. I will put a couple of pics of mine up when I get a chance but I am not getting home very much at the moment. Value for money and the difference it makes to the ride, makes this one of the best mods I have done.

I was riding today and was looking at my highway pegs and thought, bloody hell they make the bike wider. I got home and measured the furthest points of my pegs and it came to 36" which is the same as my handlebars, so no difference at all other than in my minds perspective.
I will try to get a pic up of the bike with them on ASAP but time is so limited at the moment due to so much time away on the road and so little time being spent at home with the family.

Not being one to leave things alone for long, I decided today to alter the fitment of the Highway pegs, Instead of using the Chrome clamp that came with the pegs I've decided to fit them to the Crash bars directly, As I'm going to get the bars powder coated over the winter I thought it better to drill them beforehand then I don't ruin the powder coating, Although this took the pegs a further inch forward, It did away with the clamp, I've got longish legs so they still feel just right, With Dave saying about the width I took a measurement and from tip to tip they're 38 inches so I think I'll be folding them up if filtering through traffic




I think they're great though and love the riding position for longer roads and motorways

Good job done Sim, Looks soooo much better without the clamp.
Sadly my 29" leg won't permit that mod.

Just been having a snoop round for Highway pegs for bikes without crash bars and found these but they're expensive at nearly $200 plus shipping

$200 is a lot of money for such a Fugly looking piece of chrome.

Cheaper to buy crash bars and a more expensive pair of highway pegs too

Sim/Dave,

What's the diameter of your crash bars?
I just measured mine and it's 3,5cm....so 1,5 inch

These pegs are quoted up to 1,1/4inch - 3cm.

Can it be that I got some stupid crash bars that are thicker?

Mine are 1,1/4 inch, 32mm and Dave's must be the same I think, your's will be 38 mm, 1.5 inch, I think they do/did them with 1.5 inch brackets.

Darn crash bar.....
I can't spot 1,5inch  


I'll send them a message I guess and enquire.


All the other pegs are stupidly expensive.
