Highway Pegs for MCE Canyon Cage
« on: July 11, 2013, 02:14:43 am »
O.K., I searched first and almost found what I want.  I just installed MCE's Canyon Cage and I want some Highway Pegs for them.  I found one thread pointing to a gorgeous set of Black Rivco pegs, but the black clamps are for 1" bars.  My cages are made from 7/8" O.D. tube. 

Where can I get highway pegs to fit that are NOT chrome?

No Problem. Just bought and  installed black articulating cnc anodized aluminum highway pegs from Ilium Works. These guys do a lot of work for the BMW crowd. Only thing is that they are a little pricey. Take a look  here:

$300+ for highway pegs?  :truce:

Buy the 1" clamps and use a piece of black hose to fill the gap.

i have the Rivco's on my 2011 and love'em.

Gumby is 110% correct. My problem is that I have been using this company's highway pegs so long on my Beemers, that I am addicted to their quality and performance. However, I would not recommend that you spend the big bucks on this part of your bike. I am a special case when it comes to farkling my demo bike for my shows. Truthfully, I should probably see a professional counselor about my over-farkling problem, just like my wife has recommended for years. Oh well!

Cheers,

I just responded to your similar post over on the ZGGTR Forum but I'll post it here as well for anyone else that's curious. You can find a set of black 7/8" clamps that are identical to RivCos on Amazon. I've posted the link below for you. These clamps will work with the RivCo pegs.

I didn't think there was much cross-pollination with the ZG/GTR forum.  I left over there when the admin started bickering with COG and tried to take ownership of everything.

That looks like a good price for clamps!  Thanks! 

Since MCE sells some highway pegs and lots of us add them, wouldn't it be a good idea to carry/make pegs like this and be a one stop shop?  Click the "easy" button.

I've noticed that quite a few people are members of both forums and tend to post similar stuff on both sites. On the other hand, there are also a bunch of people who prefer one over the other. So, I usually check both to keep as much of the community informed on our products as possible.

We do sell highway pegs and clamps but the pegs are chrome (most people who purchase our Canyon Cages want black pegs/clamps) and the clamps are more designed for our cruiser engine guards and don't work so well on the Canyon Cages. However, you're totally right. I'd love to offer a set of black clamps and pegs so we can be a one-stop shop, as you say. I've actually been working on that. I've been looking for a supplier where we could buy those pegs and clamps in bulk so we can offer them to the people who want pegs and purchase our Canyon Cages. I just haven't found them at a reasonable price yet. It's definitely something we're working on, though!

Leave it to BMW to charge $300 for highway pegs. Good grief!  Using the piece of hose will also cut down on vibes.

I've been looking for a set that will work on the lower angled bar on the Police Bars. This is the first set that I've seen that will work (in the 25mm size).   

But $300+ :-\ ..... maybe I should just take shorter rides.   >:(  :'(  Then again.... Christmas isn't that far away!  :)

Found the BMW pegs a little cheeper here: http://www.pca-one.com/productDetail.asp?productID=9863&RetURL=search&search=&bikeType=&bikeMake=&bikeModel=&bikeYear=&MfgCode=IMW

There may be other sources for them as well.

Bought 7/8 black clamps at JP Cycle's shop in Daytona, under $20.  Bought pegs at a swap meet $10, painted them black.  Work well.

Also posted over there but Twisted Throttle sells a nice set of MFW Vario pegs.  Not cheap but great quality.

You can get there for about the same money on Amazon, but I found these first.

I just received the Rivco pegs today....2 days after my trip lol.  Oh well! The product is high quality and looks great! 
They are made of steel, so (unfortunately) are quite heavy!  I wonder, is this intended to reduce vibration by adding mass?

I've got me some Kuryakyn 7584s in black on the way! Going to mount them up point forward (long legs) to give me some room to stretch out a little. I'll post up some photos after I get them mounted.  :motonoises: :great:

They should be arriving today. So hopefully I'll be able to post up some photos tomorrow.

But in short, I'm going to mount them to my MCE Police bars.

Given that the police bars are 1" and the clamps on the Kuryakyns are for 1.25", I'll be using bicycle handlebar shims (25.4 to 31.8 ) to compensate for the difference.
These: http://www.ebay.com/itm/400485890725?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649#ht_461wt_1003

Hope that this answers your questions for now. I'll try to post up photos asap after I get the Kuryakyns installed.

Yes, shims answers my question.

I'm going to use the Kuryakyn Longhorn offset in black, and buy the Rivco black 1" clamps, and use the Kurykyn back dually iso-pegs. Eventually when I can afford it.

Have them in my wishlist at Amazon actually, much easier and mostly less expensive for me there, due to a premier membership.

I may actually put a shim in with the Rivco clamps if I can find one thin enough. Just to make sure they grab the bar solidly.

EDIT: I found some nice stainless steel clamp shims that are 2.54 (inch) to 2.6 (1.023) which will be absolutely perfect inside the 1" quick clamp / rivco over a 1" bar. Talk about solid!

I see you mentioned Amazon lower in your post but I just wanted to mention this so everyone knows: The very-popular RivCo clamps are available through Amazon at a much lower rate. The clamps themselves are identical, they're just less expensive.

Here's a link to the 1" black clamps: http://www.amazon.com/Drag-Specialties-Three-Piece-Frame-77-6017B/dp/B0081HN8PS/ref=sr_1_12?ie=UTF8&qid=1377104989&sr=8-12&keywords=1%22+3+piece+black+clamp

And the 7/8" black clamps:
http://www.amazon.com/Drag-Specialties-Three-Piece-Frame-Clamp/dp/B0068EUASY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1377105102&sr=8-1&keywords=7%2F8%22+3+piece+black+clamp

$12 is certainly better than $30. Also, these clamps will indeed work with the black RivCo pegs as well as a ton of other pegs out there including Kuryakyn and Buell.

As I promised, here are some photos of my highway pegs.
I'll be adjusting them for proper fit and foot location over the next few days, so where they are at is just a starting point.
After I get them adjusted to where I finally want them at, I'll get a friend to snap some photos with me on the bike so you can see all the angles.  ;D

Oh! And by using the shims instead of buying new clamps, I saved a few $$$'s. Just and FYI.  :)
