New Idea for rear pegs.....

With the larger Hardbags, the passenger pegs were too far back and too close to the front of the bags.

Here is what it looked like to begin (LH for example):




So, I got some Kuryakyn Longhorn mounts w/ Pilot pegs to match the pegs on the hwy bar.

I removed the original mounts, removed the pegs, cut off the guard and "U" channel at the welds and grinded the welds down. Then I drilled the new hole for the new mount. Notice the cut made to fit the adapter.





and here is what the new pegs look like mounted





here you can see how they match the front pegs

I hope your passenger doesn't tilt their foot for the peg looks close to the pipe!

Is that just the angle of the pics?

Just the angle I guess. They look to clear the exhaust pretty good. They are removed and the mounting brackets have a fresh coat of gloss black on them and are drying. By the time they dry and I have them back on, Angie will be home and I'll adjust to fit her. They might be a notch higher than in the pic.

Picturing that in my mind reminds me of an incident back in 1979...

Friend of mine rode his brand new Yamaha XS650 to work, and came out at the end of the day to find that someone had sat on his bike after we went inside, long enough to melt some of their rubber boot heels onto each hot exhaust pipe!

.... I like how you solved this problem, looks really good!

I was just about to mention that I like that idea as it makes the pegs adjustable for various passengers. With a 4'8" better half and various nephews neices and grand children the adjustability would be a plus!
