Need help sourcing Highway Pegs!

Thought I would asked for a little help finding the right highway pegs. Plan to bolt them to my SW-Motech 7/8 engine guards. Really prefer the Dan Vesel pegs but can't find a way to source them. The version sold by TT are nice but a little unreasonable. I had a bar with bicycle hand grips bolted to my crossbar on the engine guards but this ends up being a bit of a reach for me, not to mention I bent them during a lay over in the sand. Any advise would be very appreciated. I know Yann has his version but they seem to only work with his skid plate. Considering a version I saw on the Dennis Kirk website but have read complaints about the quality and weakness. Thank you in advance.

Keep Calm, Fly-fish

The EG pegs are designed to attach to the skid plate and not the bars. Other than that I can't see why they wouldn't be adaptable to most skid plates.

The only thing about the EnduroGuradian (Yann's) pegs is that they are really only for people with long legs. I wear a 30 inch inseam in pants and barely reach the footpegs. Don't leave my legs up on them very long when I use them because my leg is fully straight and that position hurts my knees after a short time. Of course, the Wee is really designed for people with longer legs than I have and I feel that Yann solved the footpeg problem elegantly.

Yep and I have considered drilling the skid plate so that I could run them inside. It looks like there is plenty of room and I think that little bit would make a good deal of difference. As they are, they are great for a stretch but not for a long term riding position.

I mounted the Enduro Guardian (Yann's) footers directly to my Givi crash guard bars (no skid plate). Works perfectly and is about 2" closer to the seat. Just right for my 31" inseam.

Thank you.

Similar issue for me 29" inseam. Seems like the best solution is to source pegs that bolt onto the crash bars.

These pegs work great for me (I'm 5'9"). The problem is they're kind of pricey. I was lucky to find them used on eBay.

I have a black pair of those from Twisted Throttle, about 150 bucks for the pair. Excellent quality.

Find a way to fit Yann's Enduro Guardian pegs.They simply are the most robust best available.
