Highway pegs placement

Postby rexliggett » Sun Dec 27, 2015 3:17 pm



I have a 2005 goldwing and I purchased a pair of highway pegs for it, I really like being able to move around a little on long rides, however, I placed the pegs on the crashbar and I can reach the pegs, or my leg hits the hot motor, is there a workaround for this?

You can or you can't reach the pegs? If you can, then what is your question? If you can't, then you need to reposition the pegs. Your ankle is likely going to be close to or touching the plug cover of the engine, but boots will minimize the heat. I have Kuryakyn Ergo II cruise mounts with 2", 4" and 6" extension arms. I am using the six inch extension arms with pegs. I still find that my ankles are close to the spark plug covers. Kuryakyn sells mount kits to put pegs on their arms, and you need them if using this product. They come with the peg kits, but not with the floorboard kits which is how I started.

Sorry, the problem is I can't reach the pegs.

rexliggett,

It is always difficult to help someone over the internet because you don't have the problem right in front of you to examine. I am sure you have tried the pegs you have at different locations without success. Since I don't know what pegs you are using, it would be my suggestion to look at the Kuryakyn Ergo II as mentioned by themainviking. They have a lot of adjustability. You can probably see photos of them at:

Most online suppliers such as Cyclemax, ChromeWorld, Honda Direct Line, and so on will have them in stock or be able to order them if they are in the Kuryakyn catalog. Most local dealers can also order them if their parts guy knows his stuff.

There are other suppliers but for highway pegs and attachment they work very well.

I have the mic-o-pegs on my 01, and am very happy with them. My legs don't touch the side of the fairing, and they get your feet away from the motor more. Being only 5'-9" they extend far enough back to be comfortable, and the spring loaded feature gets them up out of the way when not in use. JMO
