Highway Pegs with SW Motech Crash Bars

For those of you who have the Motech bars, what are you using for highway pegs and how well do they work - I've been searched past postings but haven't seen anything clear.

I'm looking for the same... I just saw a custom fab peg but that's not for me...

I had removed the rear passenger pegs from my '11 and used them for my highway pegs on the Motec crashbars!

I have the Black Master Grip pegs they sell for the crash guards. Work fine for me.

I have the previous version of the crash guard that connects at the foot peg locations, so I don't know if the highway peg position is changed with the newer style crash bars and whether that would impact how the highway pegs work.

Just had the same thought. I'm wondering where you mounted them and what hardware you used. Any tips?

Thanks!

I'll see about taking a couple of pics while I am out in the garage today and post them tonight. I am in the middle of rebuilding my brother's ATV engine so it will be later tonight.

Sw Hi-Way Pegs

Sorry, but I had these in my "extras" box. Posting pix, because they couldn't be easier to mount on the SW bars.

I saw that drilled plate earlier and wondered what it was for. I measured it against my inseam, and that position seemed much to high for me (I'm 6 ft.)

Can I ask what your riding position is? Are you way back on the seat in "highway position"? Maybe I'll throw them on a test drive to see if that position fits.

Since I have the the Motech bars and an aftermarket bash plate, I might have to whip up a crossbar from steel square tubing....

Thanks for the images. Bike looks dialed in.
