kc2dgq Just to give you a cheap option.....
the ones I have on mine are actually threaded into a block that is clamped onto the 1" bar of the engine guard. I plan on fabricating my own offsets out of aluminum and maybe even mount them sideways on the front of the guard.

If you can do some simple fabrication, you can make just about anything cheaper than buying store baught ones....albeit, they may not look as nice.

peterherrm Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I had figured that just getting pegs that go out to the sides would only just raise the area I put my feet, not stretch my legs out at all, so I guess I need to look for some sort of offset.

As soon as I put my new MCCT's in, this will be my next project......

The engine guard came with my bike.... If you ever take it off, it's a real pain in the ass to get back on......

kc2dgq I got rid of the floorboards, but here is a cheap set hung on the Fire and Steel engine guard.

eusjma I'm not as tall as you and I definitely wanted some highway pegs after my first couple long rides (which weren't that long).

Initially I got some 30 dollar pegs that mounted on the side of the crash guard (horizontal part - kawasaki engine gaurd). They worked but were still to close to me to where I couldn't really stretch my legs forward. I could basically only change positions to where my feet were higher but knees still bent in basically same position as when using the normal pegs.

I found a set of used Kuryakyn offset pegs. I mounted these on the vertical bars of the engine guard. I also got the 2.xx" extensions to make them a little wider. I'm still figuring out the exact position I want them in but had a chance to use them last weekend and it made a big difference. I will get some pics on here when I can.

Good luck

(I probably wouldn't have gone with the Kury's if I hadn't found the good deal - would have had to go with some knockoff)

Eli peterherrm,

Stones750 Yes they are worth it, I am the same height and bought some bike master clamp on o-ring pegs. I also had to get some foot peg mount extensions to get them where I wanted but i can't seem to locate the part number now. You could probably fab the extensions from some square steel, basically the bolt brom the clamp would go into one end wit a nut welded in then drill the hole to mount the folding peg to the outside.

Short answer is YES. I was looking at some highway peg mounts that go on the empty bolts above the controls that a member here makes, but them plus the pegs were almost $300 and out of my price range. My solution was to get another stock seat and cut a lot of foam out of the bottom and back of where I sit so I could be further back. I also found a stellar deal on some forward controls so I doubt I'll ever get any actual highway pegs for this bike.
