Longer rear pegs available?

Newbie here,

Took my new to me bike out for the first ride last night and wife went along. When we came back she asked if there were longer pegs available for the back. Her foot rest best on the end of the stock pegs.

Thanks,
dave

Nothing aftermarket that I'm aware of. Think you'd need to find some longer pegs off another bike and mod them to fit, or fabricate extensions on the existing pegs.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

Some people on here say that the VN750 is not a good passenger carrying bike. I think I have to kinda disagree, it depends on the passenger, size, height, weight, etc..
My sister is a really short girl, maybe 5'2 or so, she's ridden on the back of my bike many times and loved it. I also have a friend, who is a pretty short girl too, and she likes riding too.

Now that i have the Knifemaker Floorboards for myself and my passenger, they like riding even more, they love the floorboards.
And you can always mod them to make them longer and wider if you have access to the right tools and shop.

VN800, pegs only... no need to modify.. just remove the pins that hold the pegs to the mounting brakets, then swap pegs... takes all of five minutes... I personally like the looks of round pegs, so I did this to my VN750 a few weeks ago (while trying to make my forward controls, which I will be finishing up next week some time).

Have a towel or something similar beneath the peg when removing it from the bracket, to catch a small spring and ball bearing waiting to fly out when released from pressure. They act as a retainer to hold the peg when it is folded up.

Hey thanks Slim and Gordon! If they are an inch or two longer that will work.

Now to find someone parting out a VN800............

dave

UPDATE! Ebay has 3 or 4 listing for these! Do you guys know if any year VN800 pegs will fit my 06 VN750?

I got a set of Keryakin pegs for mine. Had to find the closest match to the stock mounting bracket and they offer extentions to make them longer. A bit pricy but look good. Have pics on profile.

any year should work... I have no clue what year mine were from... Use the front pegs as they are longer than the rear pegs.

Well,
There are less of them (front pegs) on ebay and they seem to come with the shifter, mounts, etc. which makes them much more.

Would you be able to measure yours sometime from the hole center to end and let me know what that dimension is?

THANKS SLIMVULCANRIDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Where you located in Upstate?

Depending on what a used set of VN800 pegs cost, I believe I paid $65 for a new set of keryakin pegs and the extentions aren't much. Just order ones for an 800 Vulcan and you will have the right size. The Kerys come in different sizes and lengths also so maybe you won't need the extentions. I got the longer ones on mine and none of my passangers complain and I take long trips. lol
