Highway Pegs for Trikes

Postby fntmes » Thu Mar 15, 2012 10:28 am



I have a 2004 Goldwing with a CSC trike kit complete with the ground effects running boards.Would like to add a 2nd set of pegs so that I can stretch out legs. Problem is I am only 5'7'' w/short legs !!!!!!!!!!! Any ideas ??????????????

I have a 2010 trike, also CSC, great setup. Anyway, we are the same heigth. I got my pegs from Wingstuff.com. If you care to check them out they are listed at GL1800 Gold Wing Ergo II Highway Pegs, Item #KU4056 and the cost is $179.99 (on sale now). They are cheaper if you are a VIP member. Hope this helps.

I JUST WENT OUT AND MEASURED THEM, AND THEY ARE ONE INCH PIPES. THEY ARE REALLY NICE AND ADJUSTABLE, NICE FOR US SHORT GUYS. YOU CAN SEE MY MACHINE ON THE MEMBER PICTURES IF YOU WANT TO SEE THEM.

Just received my highway pegs and took dry run installation.Did you find a VERY tight installation situation especially on the right side ??? I am also seeing that the brackets won't move all the way to the back because of boards. Any problem there ??

I thought that they were a little tight due to the valve covers but they still went on ok. Your pegs should be ajustable for height and length. I think that I have four inch extensions from the bracket to the foot peg. They will be able to be ajusted up or down. Not knowing which kind you have, it is difficult to say how yours fit your trike.

I got the Ergo II with the 6'' arms.Really glad to hear that yours fit snug also.Got a little nervous when I was cruising through the feedback from people and 1 person said if you have a 04 Wing with the CSC kit with floor boards that they will not work. Whew to hear that yours when on snug also.
Again so very much for the help !!!

Yeah, Terry, those ground effects sure do make the trike, but they sure can put a damper on things too. With such a low clearance, you really have to be careful where you take it. I only have four and half inches under mine, getting it over the door sill in my shop for the winter was a trick. Snow is gone, so getting reay to hit the road real soon. Those pegs sure do save your legs, I also have the floor boards with the heal and toe shift, much nicer than those foot pegs that came on the bike.

Believe it or not we have already had an 80 degree day and lots of 70 ones also.But of course Michigan being Michigan we're only going to be in the mid 50's today.
Thanks again for all your help.
