Forward peg only BRACKET design.

I've been getting request for forward pegs only brackets and would like to get an idea if it's worth pursuing. I'm thinking the brackets needs to be made of square tubing to give the meaty look. Can I get an Amen from riders who are interested.

Amen! I'd be interested. Probably black powder coated.

Next question is do you guys want to see the pegs perpendicular to the bike or angled back about 10- 15 degrees.

I'd have to mock something up to see what the angles look like, but I think I'd probably like to see a 10 angle.

Now that you mention it, I think a bracket for just a peg is of more interest to me.


Even though I has seen your pictures - and watched your installation video, I am still having a hard time visualizing exactly where your brackets/pegs put your feet. Is it possible to post a picture showing your foot on the peg?

The peg only bracket will be approx. 1" further forward compared the picture shown.

Awesome! Thanks.


I assume that the 1" forward would put the peg coming out the center of the square tubing? From the picture, it looks like 1" more would make it quite a reach especially if you did not use the type of peg you have. What do you think?

I have kemosabes light foot pegs on my CTX I do a LOT of long distance stuff,, His pegs are life savers. I put over 15,000 miles on my CTX in less than 3 months,, and had some serious leg cramps on my USA 4 corners ride before his mounts. NOW I believe it would be a breeze to repeat that ride,,, which I am seriously considering

I too think one inch further forward would be quite a stretch. The position in the pic looks to be the right position.
