Install video for Ronnie's highway pegs
« on: August 03, 2015, 02:00:24 am »
For anyone interested, I made a Fred Harmon-style video of my install of Ronnie's foot pegs. Maybe not a big deal for most, but drilling and tapping holes in aluminum is not something I normally do, so I figured I'd make a video. The good news is - everything went well and the install was a success. I tried out the pegs on a short ride tonight, and they do seem to make a huge difference! As a side note, after my ride I took off the Buell pegs, because I dragged the left peg a few times on one of my "medium aggressiveness" routes - I think that combining the fact that they stick out farther with the fact that installing the highway pegs pushed them out another half inch or so made the rub nubs on them just a bit too low, so I went back to stock pegs (minus the rub nubs underneath).

Thanks for the video, it was well done (kudos to your Daughter).  As far as the machining part of the process you were concerned with you did fine.  The reasoning for the first (Larger) bit spot facing was to line up the tap size drill center and to put a chamfer on the hole to allow space for the initial threads to go into and still have a flat mounting face to bolt the plate to. Tapping tends to pull the initial threads outward and if you chamfer the hole first there is a space for them to go into and allows the plates to be flat when assembled.

Have you had much time to test them out?  Of all the things I have wanted to get, highway pegs are near the top of the list but none of them seem to give much stretch out room.  Do you like these?  They look good and well made.

Thanks for the feedback, what you say about chamfering the holes makes total sense to me in hindsight!

I've only tried them out around locally, and for me they seem to do enough to change up my riding position and give me more options.  Most of the time I stay fairly forward and on the balls of my feet on the pegs, and the highway pegs actually feel higher and more forward than I expected them to feel, given how close they were.  I have also read feedback from some that mounted highway pegs on canyon cages and felt they were "spread out" too far with their legs around the wider part of the faring.  With my heels hooked on these pegs, I get good relief and extension.

My next multi-day trip is in September, that will be the true test.

Cool, thanks for the update.  They are top quality and the install is easy - has to be, or I would've gotten it wrong :-)

Glad you got them & are happy with it.  I've ridden a few times with them now and they make a reasonable difference. Definitely helps with my hip flexor cramps.

The PO had them put on the bike, I've used them several times.  They work OK but not enough distance from the normal pegs.  They would be a little better if the tops were rubber coated not for the vibration (which I don't really feel) but for your feet not slipping off by bumps and wind.  other than that they do help.

 Has anyone thought of trying an aftermarket set of rubber coated pegs?
 I wonder if those Buell pegs would work up there?

The pegs need to be very thin otherwise they will not fold up all the way.  I have been looking for a method to apply rubber to the tops but have not found a good way or decent rubber that would last.  Still looking for ideas.  I must say though, on my short ride (2+ hours) 3 times a week, I use them along with the throttle lock cruise and it becomes a very enjoyable ride.  I sit back, kick out my feet, set the throttle lock and just ride http://forum.cog-online.org/Smileys/FantasticSmileys/great.gif
