Highway Pegs
« on: November 04, 2017, 09:46:18 AM »
I can understand why the pegs on the Versys 1000 are high.  It gives the rider a good position for adventure-style riding.  However, for a 6' guy, I find my legs become cramped after a while, and I'd like to stretch them out.

What alternatives to these high pegs are out there?  I have searched and found Moto Werk, MotoPreserve, Rivco, R&G, etc.  What are people using?

Thanks.

Hey DS - which hwy peg kit from Twisted Throttle did you get?  Not sure which make engine guard I have.  But as long as the peg will fit on a 1" bar, I'll be good to go.

Thanks.

I didnt yet lol. I am like an a.d.d. dog, i get sidetracked very easy. I was going to order the optional kot with the sw motech bars. If you select the bars on the sit the have a drop down option with several style peg choices.
I hope to get back to working on the versys soon, just bought a house and will finish up my 2, 1,000yrd rifle builds :D

Nice to hear other people get side-tracked too!!  :152: :152:

The guys at Twisted Throttle sent me this link --> http://www.twistedthrottle.ca/mfw-footpeg-clamp-set-for-crash-bars-with-0-85in-to-1-125in-21mm-to-28mm-diameter-pair-black  Can't say the reviews are all that encouraging.

I'm going to buy a set of Rivco highway pegs.  Here's the link to the highway mounts and pegs in their website --> https://rivcoproducts.com/shop-by-category/highway-mounts-pegs.html   Pages 2 & 3 have what I'm interested in.  https://rivcoproducts.com/shop-by-category/highway-mounts-pegs/pegswbk-black-flatfoot-wide-peg-set-us-pat-d526-937.html  and https://rivcoproducts.com/shop-by-category/highway-mounts-pegs/3-piece-heavy-duty-steel-clamps-1-black.html.  There is also a smaller black highway peg --> https://rivcoproducts.com/shop-by-category/highway-mounts-pegs/anti-vibration-pegs-black-powder-coated-pair.html

Good luck!

Today I ordered highway pegs from Rivco - Black, Flatfoot Wide Peg Set  https://rivcoproducts.com/shop/metric-bikes/pegswbk-black/

And Moto Werk Highway Peg Mounts for 1 Inch Dia Bars - https://rivcoproducts.com/shop/metric-bikes/pegswbk-black/

I think that should do the trick.  Not the cheapest, but in the long run I think that's the way to go.  Because of the Givi engine guard, I didn't think traditional highway pegs and mounts would work.  It would leave the pegs too high.

Would lowered pegs be a good alternative? If so, any recommended options out there?

I was considering these , still thinking ,so will be good to hear some more about them ,but more important for me ,the standard pegs as fitted to my 1000 gt are in the way when i need to put my feet down ,I don't want rearsets but cannot find forward pegs, and retain the brake and gear pedals ,a friend has said if i can do a scale drawing of  what i need to bring them forward by a significant amount he will look at making some from alloy ,he manages a small engineering firm and is one of these blokes who loves a challenge ,I am just wondering if any of you find this little problem .
