Hey guys need some advice. My 07 Vee came with HB crash bars and some highway pegs mounted on the lower rail of the crash bars.
I would like to move them lower and thought about getting a good engine guard and mounting on it. Is this crazy?
Where have you mounted yours?
My happy trails pegs are mounted to my amotostuff skid plate. It was perfect for me until I got the Russell seat, now it is just a bit of a stretch. I'm going to give it another thousand miles or two and if it doesn't get any better then I'm going to cut, add a piece of tubing and reweld the bar back together.
I have the Hepco-Becker engine guards and fabricated a bash plate and hi-way pegs to mount to it. I used the cross bar as the anchor point for the bash plate and pegs. I also have the Russell Day Long seat and the peg position is great (I'm 6'2"). On a recent long trip I didn't have any of the pain or discomfort that was common without the pegs.
I'll have to figure out how to post pics but it might take a few days.
