Just thought I would include a few pics of my pegs. Removed from RoadStar. A few new bolts and away we go.
I am 6' 3" and they feel quite nice.

Ghagar, That's a new idea. Can you post some pictures of you sitting on the bike with legs stretched out so we get a better idea?

Now that's what I was thinking of doing a long time ago (sometime early last year right after I bought my CTX). :D

Sure, attached are the pics I am 6' 3" and find these quite nice. I don't like my legs stretched out to far.
Ghagar: nice! what brand/model are your forward pegs? How did you adapt them to the CTX1300?

Thanks

Kuryakyn Offset Highway ISO Pegs Dually with 1 1/2 in Clamps .. Then I used a 6 1/2 stainless bolt with 13/16 chrome deep socket as a spacer. Took about 20 minutes. Sorry about the large print... can't get rid of it!!'

Forward Foot pegs, variation on the theme

Kuryakyn 4574 Longhorn offset dually hwy. pegs w/ 1 1/2" clamp. Amazon $118.90. Bought 5" stainless bolt and cut 3/4" OD stainless tubing ( scrap from boat railing) cut at 3 1/2" length. Perfect fit!! Nice position. I have a 32" inseam.

Looks really good! I'm a 34" inseam how do you think they would work for me? Did your Kuryakyn clamps come with any rubber cushions to go around the tubing (between the clamp and frame tube) to help keep it from sliding and to protect the tubing from getting scratched?

Just checking in with you to see if the pegs you installed move around or have came loose. Do you think you would go shorter on the 3 1/2 stainless tube or is that the length you need to clear the pipes?

Clamps have not moved. Directly to tubing ( You will Need special wrenches, offset, elbow???? Don't know what they are called) to grab bolt head and torque as tight as possible. Foot peg position good for me. 32" inseam. Heals on peg to stretch fully. Another member mounted forward of pipes and offset back and used a long socket as the spacer. 5" bolt and 31/2" tubing put them just out enough. A little more lenght of bolt & spacer would work to give more leg clearance to right valve / spark plug cover.

I'm intrigued by your setup but have a few questions:

1. Since there is no "locking plate" using the spacer modification, what prevents the assembly from rotating due to vehicle and road stresses, simply the torque on the long bolt?

2. I'm guessing you have to set the overall position of the offset by holding it in place while you torque down the long bolt?

I looked at the Kury 7599 (also available with 1 1/2" clamps) as they're black. Trying to decide whether the chrome peg installation steals from the pipes' impressive visual impact. The black might be less dramatic.

Thanks for your thoughts.

The torque of the bolt HAS adequately held the Kury offset peg unit.. They have not moved. The pegs also have 2 adjustments via Allen wrench screws. I have been pleased with the result, and position .Being 5'8" with 32" inseam and thin legs, When the toe or arch of my foot is over the peg , my lower leg at below the knee tucks behind the valve/ spark plug cove., Nice in cooler weather.
Extend to heel on peg or full stretch out both giving more air flow up legs and crotch.
As one would expect , much more comfortable for longer rides.

What would concern me about the installation---and it does look good--is the fact that using a hard spacer prevents the Kury splines from mating. That means the overall load bearing integrity of the entire installation depends on pure friction without any locking mechanism. If the stainless bolt loosens at all over time due to frame/road stresses, the operator could be subjected to an abrupt and possibly catastrophic event if the peg rotates down suddenly with the weight of the operator's foot/leg.

I'd be interested in your periodic reports over a few thousand miles whether you've had to re-torque the long bolt and/or whether the assembly has shown any inclination to move.

I also tried highway pegs that way at 1st. Was nice because of a different location for you legs but ended up buying menosabe's peg brackets. I love that stretched out feeling goin down the road.
