bison,
The Top Blocks are sold through Murphs Kits. They are 575$ for the '10 up C14. 550 for 08/09's. I was thinking about trying to do what BJ did myself but never got around to it. Looks like I am going to have to get on it now.

I think it would be awesome if you could use something like the "Highway Blades" that are made for the ST1300:

Brian,

Opening the post again.  Can you please post the parts list on the mod for the foot pegs.  I am interested in doing this with mine but am at a loss as to what pegs to get a hold of that would work for this.  Also, if you could post some close ups of the install it would be greatly appreciated.

ChrisD,  I don't think Matt gets on here much more...I believe he sold his bike earlier this year or late last year.

That is slick very interested!!! I have been looking far and wide for non intrusive highway pegs and tupperware protection. This mod may make the exorbitant price of the top blocks worth it :)

I think I'll pull one side of mine apart tomorrow to see what it looks like underneath.  It's been a while and I forgot. 

I'm mainly curious about the mounting, is it a hole drilled through or a C-clamp. I've been on Google for the past 2 hours and can't find a mounting system that might make sense.  Plenty of U-clamps but don't think that is a good option.


Who knows, maybe Brian will come on-line and let us all know... :)

It looks like the MFW pegs with their ubolt system to me.

Oh I like that, MFW is a German company and located about 2 hours South of me right next to the Black Forrest.  Sounds like a road trip to me when I get some time....
