Is this old news - GL1800 Pegs

I have just swapped my stock pegs for Honda Gold Wing pegs on my WEE. They fit right on. They also give you twice the surface area to rest your feet & lower than the stock peg by a little over 1/2 to 3/4 inches. Pull the peg pin slide the Wing pegs on. Adjust the shifter & brake pedal & your done 10 min install.

Gotta like it.

Now that's a really interesting idea. My dad has a set left over from when he added floor boards to his Wing. Maybe I'll give it a shot. I little worried about the "grippiness" of those pegs if I take the VStrom off-road however.

I posted a thread on goldwing pegs, but I think mine came from a GL1500 and had to make one minor mod, I had to drill a shallow pocket for the spring in the V-strom mount

the wider surface is much more comfortable, especially on longer rides, I have to modify my shifter (lengthen it), as it makes my shifting a bit pigeon toed

the GL1500 pegs seem only to be about " lower

I looked into the buell / goldwing peg solution, but most lowering setups screw up the stock controls. The only mod that works effectively is Richland Rick's lowering brackets because the lower the whole assembly:

I have GL1800 footpegs on my Connie, and yeah, they're huge and comfy. Almost like mini floorboards, very nice upgrade:



I don't see how they would screw up the reach to the stock controls. The Buell pegs do a bit, as I have those on my ZRX1200. I had a welder extend the peg on my shifter to solve the pigeon toe problem though.

in my case, the purpose of using GW pegs was to get a wider base, the GL1500s lowering is barely noticable " .

the other peg I considered was from a Vulcan750 iirc

I pulled the pegs off my GL1800i and put them on my Vee. What a difference it made. I also tried them for the passenger and they look pretty good there. I think I'll now need to pick up one more sets as my fiance will want them as well. I now have an excuse to add the little floorboards I wanted for the Wing (assuming I don't sell it).

They are definitely lower so I can't ride as aggressively in the twisties so I'll keep a stock set with me on a trip and swap them out as needed. I didn't need to adjust my shifter as it is better now. The brake was too high.

From what I can tell from the forum posts, either the 1500 or 1800 Wings will work but the 1800's are lower. Much cheaper than getting the control relocation kits as well. The springs also worked fine from my stock Vee pegs. No issues there at all.

Installed a pair the other night, very happy with them. I ride with the balls of my feet on the pegs, these are flatter, so they actually work better for me and are more comfortable. If they fit the rear, I may get another set for my wife, she looked at the wider pegs on front, and mentioned how nice they'd be on the rear too.
