Another version of highway peg mounting

So some time back I mentioned that I had a thought for a slight variation on highway peg mounting, and I did it, and I was happy with the results, and I even took the photos, then I got lazy and didn't upload the pictures. I'm sorry about that, but hey better late than never right? lol

Parts list:

Kuryakyn #1001 Magnum Quick Clamps 1 1/2"
Kuryakyn #4511 Short Right Angle Mount
Kuryakyn #7936 2" Adjustable Offset Peg Mount
Kuryakyn #7591 Large Trident ISO Pegs (Male Mount Chrome)
Kuryakyn #2451 Kool Kaps Bolt Cover 1/2" Hex Bolt (Uses 3/4" Wrench)

So the Quick Clamp goes around the frame by the pipes so that the bolt tabs are parallel to the ground. Bolt goes in from the top to the short right angle mount. Adjustable offset peg mount goes into the clevis on short right angle mount and the pegs go onto the offset mount. Kool Kaps bolt cover hides the non-chrome (really Kuryakyn????) 1/2" bolt that holds the right angle mount to the quick clamp. Blue locktite on everything once you get the angles of everything set where you want them.

There is a Long Right Angle Mount, I tried them both and liked the short mount better. There is also a 4" Adjustable Offset Peg Mount, but I already owned the 2" from a previous bike.

You are going to need more ground clearance on that SUV you built

looks very nice, now if somehow somebody could review and compare your set up with Menosab's, that would be great. in the meantime i have to occasionally just swing my legs up to rest on the engine guards .

Depends on where you want your feet I would guess. If you look at menosabe's they will be higher. I would say if you were putting your feet up on the guard you will be quite happy with menosabe's brackets

My compliments to the chef!
Installed this configuration and road tested it over the last two days and it's perfect for me. Right height, doesn't detract from the bike's lines.

My only concern over the long term is the friction/compression fit between the short right angle and the clevis half. But I'm hoping that the 5000 psi and copious amounts of thread locker that I applied to the bolt will keep the two components from migrating.

With my Kury Swing-Wing pegs I can rest the heel of my boot on the peg and rest the front of the boot on the highway peg. Just about as comfortable as the floorboards that I dearly miss from other bikes. And of course then I can rest the whole boot on the highway pegs to stretch out. Very nice.

Other configurations are too high for me. Feet up too high makes me feel like I'm being prepped for an OB/GYN exam

Nicely done!

And sadly, that concern was justified. After ride today I noticed the left side peg had rotated down about an inch (had my foot resting on it most of the ride.

The compression/friction fit of the right angle and clevis is the weak link in an otherwise super installation. I believe however, that some JB Weld will succeed where the blue thread lock failed. Cementing that joint will not affect the ability to adjust the peg height and angle.

We'll see.

I am sorry that happened. I have not noticed that situation on mine as of yet, but I find the standard peg position on the CTX to be the most comfortable of all the bikes I have owned, and just take short stretches on the highway pegs where as on my other bikes i was on the highway pegs all the time. I'll keep an eye on it and report back if I have a similar issue.

By all means, don't be. Not your fault in any way, shape or form.

Different riders have different leg lengths and size. The weight and moment arm of riders' leg will vary significantly, as will the resultant vector forces exerted on the installation. What works for some may require reinforcement for others.

I have bad (Goldwing) knees and can't live with the upright riding position that Honda loves to foist on its taller customers. I need somewhat more than the 90 degree knee bend riding position and your design provides that.

I just need to make it MILSPEC
