Wider C14 drivers footpegs
« on: February 13, 2015, 12:00:25 am »
I'm wanting to replace the front footpegs on my 2012 C14 with something wider. I have rather large feet & the narrow stock pegs start to hurt the arches of my feet after 5-6 hours. Not looking to lower just wider for a more flat surface. Anyone find anything that's comfortable ?.

Or if you don't want to give up any cornering clearance, how about boots with a thicker sole? And yes, I'm assuming you have thin sole boots like my sport Sidis. They're so thin you feel everything, but they're not good for long trips for the reason you mention. Plus vibration intrusion, and very little cold relief (when needed). The bad news on those pegs above is they'd surely let a lot more vibration reach your feet; hopefully not enough to numb them... so you'd need thicker boots anyway ;D. So I'd try that first. Good luck.

Have thick soled icon boots. But at 14" & after about 400-600 miles of of riding & only stopping for gas the middle of my feet hurt. Part of the problem could be caused by my occasional standing on the pegs to stretch the legs out.  :beerchug:

Those are off of my XB12XT Ulysses. I have the part # some where can't find it right now, but they are getting harder and harder to find.

Got mine from a Harley dealer at www.surdyke.com
Buell pegs part nos.N0502.4AK
                             N0503.4AK

About $80 IIRC. They will lower about 1 or 1 1/2.

Hi,
       Do you guys with Murph's Pegs have a hard time getting the gear shift lever right again.

 I tried the lowered Cycle Pirate pegs and could not get the gear shift adjusted to my satisfaction no matter what I did?

 I'm now back to stock which is fine,just wondering?

The gear shift is still positioned ok with the Buell pegs. The back brake seems a bit high, but I can't remember the last time I used the back brake. :017:

KLR and C-10 pegs are squishy and good. Might be what the doctor ordered Zarticus. C-10s are the softest I've ever seen. Passenger ones might be more so.

Got to mention the idea of insoles. The New Balance store set me up with an insole for my riding boots that work in all my shoes and help a lot.

Lowering your pegs + size 14 boots and you won't have any cornering clearance at all  :(

Previous post regarding thick soled boots(yes, boots not shoes/flip flops, etc.) help a great deal regarding vibration and also those who are vertically challenged and riding "tall" bikes. Too many years riding HD's but reason you will rarely see a Harley rider wearing anything but heavy thick soled boots is to reduce the vibration to the foot and legs and for better protection with accidents.
To me anyway the C14 is absolutely velvet smooth at all rpm ranges. Just a suggestion.

Hi,
        Yea! Size 15 here! I think that was another fly in the ointment! I'm going to stick with stock I think! ;D

I have seen C-14s with C-10 passenger pegs.

I use KLR ones for highway pegs on my crash bars.

Those are all the facts I have at the moment :-X

I'll look it up tonight if no one answers for sure.

When I installed the Buell pegs on my 08 I had to adjust both the shifter and rear brake pedal. :great:
Shifter is a breeze to adjust, rear brake is a little more involved. Not difficult, just time consuming.

Hi,
I have an '09 for a couple of years now and I have the same issue. My arches start to hurt with the narrow pegs. Even with thick boots. The peg stays right in front of the heel and it irritates me. The buell pegs are hard to find anyone use any other pegs? Will the KLR fit?
