Vulcan 750 highway pegs

I have a vulcan 750, 2005 with a stock engine guard. I know there are several forums scattered around about this topic but I haven't had any luck. I've heard the stock engine guard is 1", although I have boughten the "magnum quick clamps" and they do not fit fully snug around the bar. Do I have to wrong size? I'm looking for a set of highway pegs that will work with my bike for the cheapest price. By the looks of it I will need a complete kit (clamps, extensions and pegs) to make sure the pegs see out far enough from the foot break.

Any help is appreciated!!!

You are correct.... 1" Engine Guard.

Some clamps can be loose fitting......some owners place a chunk of inner tube under the clamp....not to scratch/gouge/scar the Engine Guard, thus avoiding future rust stains.....also peg re-adjustment is possible w/o scars.

just sayin'

If you have a garden hose laying around you don't mind cutting a piece off of works also.

Help tighten it up but cuts down the slick metal to metal slipperage for sure. Good suggestion!

I am looking for a set of passenger peg extenders (more leg room) for my wife.

Any ideas/ suggestions?

I put a used set of Kuryakyn pegs on my engine guard. The clamps (mine) require a washer be used with them to make them fit properly around the bar as well as tighten properly.

I couldn't find any good solutions for the passenger footpegs so I made my own.

https://www.vn750.com/forum/album.php?albumid=518

Based on Knifemakers floorboard design with a different shape and made out of aluminum. I removed the rubber part and bolted the plate down to the top of the peg.

It may not look pretty, but it was a good first draft that she still uses.
It extends forward a few inches and the wife seems to like the foot position more tahn stock. I plan on redesigning it and trying to make a different set in the future.

One advantage is that when they are in the folded position, the left side actually scoops air and diverts airflow onto my relocated R/R.
