I have had bad experience with my HF Pittsburgh torque wrench on anything below 35-40 ft/lb so I just use my spanner or normal wrench as I have a fair idea of the force required. Same 33ft/lbs applies for the engine mounts. Those pegs work real good. Wish I could put something like those on my FZ6.

These pegs should be offered by the factory, adds so much comfort on the highway, Great job machining and install took maybe 5 minutes

Yeh, i've used those too a few times lately, that's comfy for all of about 3 minutes til it starts cutting off circulation to the backs of your calves. I'll take the forward pegs, 1 more position/alternative to give diff. sections of the arse a break.

Harley Sportster pegs

I saw your posts and looked around my extra stuff and found these HD sportster pegs I had laying around. These work too but the right side peg needs to be machined a little so they are ahead 1 inch so the peg will be able to be folded back

I also have frame sliders and in my opinion they are useless as highway pegs
where as these pegs are very functional and look stock. Pegs come from Yamaha and machined aluminum painted black blends to frame seamlessly, does not look aftermarket.

I have a box of pretty much identical pegs to what you've posted here. Off my 1999 Harley sportster. If needed let me know.

I was wondering is "Satan666" still making and selling these higway peg kits?

I would love to add a second set of footrests out front too stretch out the legs during longer rides.

Just got back from Sturgis. 600 miles each way. Bike ran great. I held it around 80 each way. strong head wind going west so only got 100 miles to a tank, 120 going east. I didnt run it to empty though. The harley hiway pegs really saved me

That secondary screen really helped, too. But probably what cut down on the mileage, though.

Seriously, I doubt I have the brain strength to do a couple 600 mile back to back days, unless an emergency, and a lotta aspirin.

I suspect my rear end would be the death of me on a 600 mile ride. the forward pegs would certainly help though!

Only thing worrying me now though is whether or not this mod will work with the Yamaha Lower cowl (belly pan). I hadnt given that much thought until recently. I havent installed one yet, but I plan to buy one when the funds become available. I sure hope the highway pegs will clear the belly pan.

I've had these on for over a month and absoulutely love them. I cant ride with my feet forward for too long because it puts too much pressure on my back; also why I can't ride cruisers, even though I would for my straight highway commute. THese pegs are great. They don't stick out too far when up or down, although I don't recomend turning with your calf resting on the peg. Your boots will touch. I don't even scuff my regular pegs so I obviously don't have a problem with these. But if you are worried, don't be, they ride higher (slightly) than the stock pegs and other stuff will start scrapping before these ever touch the ground. Thanks so much Satan!!!

I ordered Satan's pegs for my one long loop, just short of 400 miles, which has about 10 miles of jam up traffic along the coast, causing my legs to cramp up.

But, for the past couple months, up to about two weeks ago, I stiffen one knee due to jogging down hill too fast. I could still jog, but less times per week and slower, but didn't know I would have a problem riding until I tried.

Without these pegs, there would be no way I could ride. I just kept resting that one knee on each straight, and that's how I kept the bike going.

For the past few days, I haven't needed the pegs on my shorter loops, but it's great to know that they're there if needed.

And they look great, either extended or folded.

Also worth mentioning. He asked me how I wanted them painted and I got all black. He took the time to bead blast the pegs and painted them and they seem to really be holding up. Also, I didn't need to adjust the angle of the peg in any way, so installation took about 2 minutes per side including 2 minutes total to find my loctite.

I have a set on the way also, can't wait as most of my rides are at least 300km long. I think that these will enable alot more seat time between needed rests.

Peg Drop?

Does the mounting bar lower the peg or is the peg at the same height as the boss hole?
