HWY peg options for Vee2 with SW Motech Crash Bars?

Hi there, bin going the usual Google searching but can only come up with one reputable source, (MFW brand).

Footpegs - Ergonomics & Rider Comfort - Shop by Product | TwistedThrottle.com

They are pricy so I am looking for alternate suggestions.

Apparently the SW Bars are 27mm, which might explain why my 1" clamp style $30 ones did not secure well on the bar.

Any alternate suggestions...?

I have also tried the clamp on style from Kapscomoto, but they just move around after I've tightened them.

Hi there thanks.

I checked out Happy Trails offerings and they only show these:

Happy Trails Adj Universal Clamp-on Highway Pegs SKU: HTP0-0-4-A.

Which they say are only for 1" or 25.4 mm bars. I understand the SW Motech bars are 27mm.

I sent HT an email to see if they could help me.

Stay tuned.

Ps: I'm terrible at anything remotely considered "home made"!

If you have an aluminum skid plate you could attach some Enduro Guardian highway pegs to that. It is a bit lower too.

Hey BugMagnet, thanks a bunch for the referral.

I have a SW Motech skid plate so I just sent them an email to see if their HWY pegs and side stand cover plate will work.

Yes lower would be better I think as well.

I believe the highway pegs will work, but you will have to drill holes in the skidplate to accept the hardware that will hold the pegs. I have not done this yet, but have always wanted to. BugMagnet is correct that the pegs mounted across the skidplate are a much better position than on the engine guards. Post some pictures in you install the Happy Trails highway pegs - good luck!

I use the Happy Trails highway pegs on both my bikes. It's a very simple installation and just as chirosyd mentioned, drill two holes and bolt up the crash bars. I use the OEM crash bars on both my 650 and 1000 and they're definitely a lifesaver on long trips.

Hey guys are you talking about the Happy Trails pegs or the Enduro a guardian brand?

Bug magnet was talking about the Enduro Guardian style.

Yann from Enduro Guardian emailed me back to say he was not sure if they would fit on the SW plate. He suggested I click on the pic of the bars at the web site which is suppose to take me to more pictures and info.

Can you take a pic and post it of your skid plate. I can tell you if it will fit or not. I'm talking about the Happy Trail highway pegs. They mount to the skid plate not the crash bars. I can't imagine highway pegs mounted to the crash bars being comfortable since they're up so high unless you're short. The skid plate mounted ones let you stretch out at foot peg height.

I got the Adventure Designs Highway Pegs with Storage (I could care less about the storage feature), but they are some quality pegs. Fit right on the SWM engine guards.
