AST highway pegs
« on: December 12, 2017, 02:07:03 am »
Wondering if anybody has bought from AST lately? I may want to get the highway pegs but can't afford to throw away that kind of money! They look good and easy (relatively) to install. Getting a bum leg and I don't think I can go the distances without these or something like it.

Anybody have any used pegs laying around?

Gregg,
I have those on mine, and love 'em.
If you can get 'em, they're worth it.
Only thing... the long pegs will scrape if they're down in twisties.
I just lift them up and change back positions before I get to the curve, then back down in the straightaways. Leg savers on long trips!
Good luck. Haven't talked to Ryan in a while. Kept reading posts from guys that were successful. Hopefully, Ryan got back on track.

Have you checked out Rons Pegs?

When I searched Ron's pegs, AST came up. Will try again.

Found them. I think I like the AST pegs better. They are more forward than Ron's and would provide more relief. Comments?

This is true, Gregg.
AST's are adjustable, also.
Legs go much farther forward with AST's.

They have a square tube framework that goes in behind the plastics. But, I was able to install mine w/o removing any plastic bodywork. If you mounted your Rostra servo according to BDF's suggestion on the lower left side and also have tip over protection installed, (like I do...) the 3 add ons want to use the same mounting point on the left side. I just reshaped the Rostra bracket a bit, and relocated it's mounting point.
The other two shared the same engine mount location. So it will work together.

Also, Ron's pegs for the C14 have been sold-out for at least 6 months now... looks like he's not making them anymore?  :'(
Best,

I'll have to check the Rostra mounting point. I don't mind removing the plastics. Can do it in my sleep now! No tip over protection....yet. Don't you have to actually drop it before getting it?  ::)

Ronnie is still making them.  Just received email back from him saying so.
