Foot Peg Question

Postby GLadnoh » Mon Jul 02, 2012 8:38 am



I have been thinking about changing/upgrading the front stock pegs on my 2010 GL 1800. At this point, I am not sure I want to put floorboards on. Are there any other foot peg systems that are in between stock pegs and floorboards that can be recommended and work well?

On all my wings,I found a "peg" uncomfortable.My foot rocked too much and they angled my ankle out.
They look nice but I changed to a foot rest.
Each one was styled a little different and needed a little tweaking to fit my like but they all were about 4" wide and 8" long.
Look on E-Bay for some ideas.

ok here, goes my two cents worth , I bought the egho 2 with the 6 in bar and they are not long enough for me , Im looking for someway that I can move them farther back toward the seat , I`m 5`11`` but have short legs I suppose comepared to others but anyway I`m looking at the mounts that fit on the floor boards , I `m not sure how that will work but I haven t found an 8 or 10 in arm that will work , I think that if you could put the 1500 enginge guard on you would have a reasonable fix for us short legged guys huh anyway there`s mine

here`s a solution that worked for me on thge ergo 2 road pegs , I cut the excess material on the holder to alow it to come on around the curve in the engine guard, this allowed it to come back the distance that I needed an also allowed the pegs to come in closer to me so that I wasn`t wished boned anymore , seems to work really well for me , just a few twecks and they should be just right but so far so good . this doesn`t take a lot of material away either , .. just lay the to p- holder on the curve the way you want it and out line the bar and grinde the top and bottom to match . looks like the curve of the engine guard and fits good and tight, it doesn`t seem to have any faults as of right now , I didn`t take anything away from the bolt pattern or the strengh of the holder . just used a 4 in grinder and a dremeal with sanding drums , worked for me may not work for you , all I can say is messure and look ok cu
