Highway pegs

So I ordered the Yamaha crash/engine bar tonight for my strat.

Then I started my search for highway pegs.....There are a crap ton of options. I searched the forum but most pics of the crash bars and pegs have been removed or can no longer be seen.

SO my question and favor... what kind do you have and do you mind posting a pic?

Wouldn't it be better just to move the controls forward a bit?
Personally, I would be worried to have to move my feet first to the controls from a higher position in case of an emergency.

Just wondering....

Kind regards, Wim

I put these on my 1100 https://www.denniskirk.com/kuryakyn/...prd/504158.sku

They have a nice large platform for my foot plus the adjustments are limitless. When I bought mine denniskirk was the cheapest place I found them. Sorry I don't have any pics though.

I have kuryakyn pegs on mine. They're mounted pretty low - not far above the regular controls. I use them more just to shift position a little bit than get my legs high up on the bars. So I mostly put my feet up there for a minute or two, then back on the floorboards in usual position. I also don't really like having my feet so far away from the controls, but they do help me avoid leg-cramps on long rides.

Well I have ordered my junk...I kind of pieced it together, looks good on the computer screen, we shall see in real life. It should all be here by the end of the week.

I have the Yamaha bar coming, 1.25 billet clamps with grooves cut in the curvature and 'stiletto' pegs..

Add that to my LA chopper risers, I will have some pics to post this weekend hopefully.

Ah, I see . I now have reverted to fish oil (not for the motorbike, for myself ), and that actually helps with the cramps, as in, of late I don't get them anymore. My joints don't creak anymore either, which was the main reason to start using them again .

Kind regards, Wim

Are those the bent, flattened clamps?

We'd love to see photos, of course .

Kind regards, Wim

Very nice indeed, if not some of the best I have seen so far, style and body wise!

Where did you get those, if I may ask?

Looking forward to seeing pics of the completed project!

Kind regards, Wim
