Clamp-on pegs

I'm thinking of ordering a pair of these clamp-on highway pegs and putting them on the engine guard. They are about $20 + $15 shipping on eBay. Has anyone else tried these? Do they stay in place? Here is a link to the ones I'm looking at:

I had some pegs with the same type of mounts on mine for a while (on the fire and steel engine guard). I clamped them on pretty tight. They seemed to be fine.

You could always cut a piece of old inner tube and wrap that around the guard first and then clamp down on that for a more secure hold. I believe a few members have had similar clamp on pegs so hopefully they give an opinion soon for you.

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"

but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.

Thanks guys. I like the inner tube idea which may also prevent scratching the guard. I'm going ahead to order them.

I had a similar set off Amazon. They used the same mounting clamp and while they worked they weren't real good at clamping around the engine guard. Since they aren't offset they are too close to stretch out on. In an effort to move them a bit more forward I slid the clamps to the start of the cure in the engine guard and they tended to twist.

I've since installed a set of more expensive 4" offset pegs and am much happier.

I had them on my F&S engine guard as well.....they worked well.
I had them clamped onto the front part at the curve on the guard and they stayed put pretty well....and they dug in but did not do any real damage to the chrome finish.

You will definitely want the rubber wraps... my feet vibrated right off the set I had installed, even though it had rubber on the top only...
