    Foot Pegs for Tralex Crash Bars

    I want to get some highway pegs to mount on Tralex crash bars. I am in the process of ordering the bars and don't have them in hand to measure. Does anyone know the diameter of the Tralex bars? Better yet, does anyone have a link to foot pegs that fit the Tralex bars?

    Only motorcyclists know why dogs stick their head out the car window.

    .85 to .88 inch external diameter is what I get off of mine.  I've thought about getting a set too but haven't done it yet; maybe it's a excuse to run up to the new cycle gear and see what they have :)

    I bought a set of these:
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0BJF5B8BF?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details

    They appear to be very well made, extremely adjustable for mounting flexibility, and are actually made for flags or whips on off road vehicles.  The only problem is that they claim to fit 7/8" tubes they did not come with multiple spacers, and even spacers for 7/8" tube would make them tight on the Tralex bars.  I'm thinking of trying to come up with a bushing for them that will allow them to tighten sufficiently to mount pegs on them.  There are no mounts that I can find that would reliably tighten on the R&G bars OR the Tralex bars, and I've been looking and trying different ones for years.  The U-bolt type won't and they are godawful looking to boot!  The ones I just bought are more pleasing to the eye, if I can just make them work.  Best of luck in finding something.

    Clamps for 7/8" bars will not tighten up on the bars.  I've tried 3 different types/brands on the R&G bars which are a tiny bit larger diameter than the Tralex bars and none of them will tighten up.  I made aluminum shims to go under a set of 7/8 clamps but the will still allow the mounts to rotate.  Part of the problem is the lack of a suitable orientation and/or an angle off of vertical on all the tubes on the Trophy bars.  The BEST solution would be to have someone weld a gusset plate with a mounting hole in it on one of the 90 degree junctions of the tubing and that may help.  The other thing I'm seriously considering is having Line X bed liner material sprayed on them as a protectant since it's tough as nails and nothing hurts it and it will also add some diameter to them.  The textured surface may also help clamps with a piece of rubber under them to grip well enough to reliably stay in place.  A local company that does bed liners quoted about a $100 to do them because there's a lot of waste since they spray from about 10' away and have to keep rotating them to get an even coating all around.

    I purchased those same pegs through Wallmart. With the use of the supplied spacers, they tighten up and don't slip. Can make them tighter if I wanted to.  Cant say I found a good comfortable riding location for them. But they are convenient to hang my helmet.
