This is the video he is asking about:


As to the highway peg / engine guard set. Right now I believe Happy Trail is about the only supplier that has these in stock. My brother has been waiting for over a year with another supplier.

My Kaw Barn - 2004 KLR, 2006 Concours (sold), 1997 Bayou 400.

Okay, my bad. I thought you were referring to the upper tank guards when you said engine guard. Don't know where that set comes from. Looks a little better than those ones with stucco lathe in them.

This is pretty close. The biggest difference I see off hand is that the one I found has expanded metal [mesh] on the upper coverage area. I have this model on my bike. I cut the lower bar away to make removing the aluminum skid plate quicker and easier.

I think I can get the manufacturer and distributor info on the actual set in the video.....hang tight.

This just in from the bike in the video's owner, regarding the engine guard / foot pegs:

Pat;

It was an ebay deal a really long time ago. I just looked for klr highway pegs and came up with no results. Sorry!

I've got a similar set that I got from a guy on another forum, years ago..



No screen on mine, but I do use the pegs on longer trips to get a chance to move around on the bike.
