One man, one set of Highway pegs, no jack. Would appreciate and tips or tricks in getting them clamped down on the same spot (level) on both the left and rights sides of my highway bars - thanks!
That procedure is very close to what I used the other day. Picked up my bike from the shop where the tech replaced the Cobra bars and refitted the highway pegs after a side swipe accident. When I got home, I realized one was not the same level as the other. Measure down from the flat bar on the top rather than from the ground up.I measure carefully from the lower frame and mark it with a sharpie. Then I use a square and measure down from the flat bar across the top. This usually confirms that they are level. I then measure up or down from that first mark to get the pegs where I want them.
Not pretty, but it works and my pegs are level.
Depends, we are all different sizes and shapes. For me there are three ways to use hwy bar pegs. 1 Heel on floorboard, ball of foot on pegs. Comfy and fast to shift or brake . 2 instep or heel on peg. Knee slightly bent. Comfortable for long distances and changes pressures points on the butt and legs. Also, for me feels aggressive somewhat in sweepers. 3 Heel on the leg. The full stretch, toes pointed out. Mostly used as a position break for longer rides.is height placement on the bar a preference for comfort or should they be placed above, but relatively closeby, the floorboard?
