Picked up a set of Kuryakyn highway pegs for my '04 vn750, (kury part #4575) with the 1-1/4" magnum clamps. I went to slap 'em on the bike today and discovered I couldn't fit the clamps over the frame tube due to a clearance issue with the radiator cover
So here's where I'm at: I'm trying to get these suckers on and I KNOW there's room on that bar, but I can't figure how to work those clamps into place. If I try to remove or loosen the front of the radiator am I going to get myself into a worse situation where I've somehow screwed up my radiator?
I haven't modified anything in the front end near where I'm working so consider everything stock. The only things anywhere close to this vicinity that I've installed is the oil filter and a set of throttle cables.
Otherwise, am I going to have to drop more $$$ to buy a highway bar that I can mount these to? That's a somewhat unattractive option though, considering how scarce they seem to be and that I have my doubts that I can find one in a 1-1/4" diameter. The wingerlines seem to be available but they're 1-1/8", so it would become a question of fitting a 1-1/4" clamp to a 1-1/8" bar. Ugh.
Update- found out Kury makes a 1-1/8" clamp I should be able to swap out for the ones my pegs came with, so that could make the wingerlines work. However, I'm in the middle of a really expensive cross-country move and pretty averse to spending that much dough. I would still prefer to make my current setup work if anyone has any words of wisdom on that front. Thanks in advance.
