bought the adjustable rider pegs from twisted throttle
« on: June 18, 2015, 02:43:08 pm »
DO NOT buy these,  the sales folks have it WRONG they list as fitting our trophys  BUT they do not fit correctly,, The little block that mounts onto the bike is CUT wrong and is missing too much of the tab that determines how far the foot peg hangs down .. I mounted them yesterday and they hang down well past 90 degrees to the bike frame. so much so that your feet want to slide off them.  DON'T waste your money on them.

I went ahead , since I had the stock pegs off,  and removed the rubber from them,  and remounted them  NOT too bad, more comfortable than stock position.  I just found out that the pegs I bought in the kit will fit the mounts for my R&G crash bars  SO NOT a total loss

The only problem I found with removing the rubber covers from the footpegs is that the polished aluminum underneath is slippery and boots move around on them some.  I tried several different non slip treatments to fix that and none of them would hold up under boots moving around on the surface for as much as even one day of riding so I went back to stock.  If you could find someone that sprays Linex bedliners they could spray the top surface and I KNOW that would hold up.  Problem is, every time I have asked to have anything sprayed the next time they are doing a pickup bed the first words out of their mouths are always $100 - ouch!  They're already spraying a bedliner in and I need maybe 40 sq. in. and it's $100.  :017:
