K1200lt highway pegs

Because I didn't like the Jpegs or Mic-o-pegs, and yes I have had both! A friend and I have made some highway pegs for my K1200LT. They are stainless steel, and it is a simple mounting to the bike. I have them mounted and they are really comfortable, so far only 400-500 miles. You can put your foot on them or lay your leg on them like the old ottoman pegs. They are still in the development stage and I will be the test bunny to ensure comfort and simplistic mounting. I will post some pictures these on my bike as soon as possible.
What he would like to know is how many people would be interested in some different style highway pegs for their k1200LTs.

I have no financial interest in this venture, I only get the set that is on my bike. But if he gets enough interest he will produce a few hundred pair. Price point will be mid 200's, depending on the price of stainless steel at the time.

If anyone is interested, no commitment, just drop me a note. I will forward the number of interested parties.

Re: K1200lt highway pegs

I would be interested. Have J-Pegs on my '03 and they are uncomfortable for my long legs. Looked at the Mick-O-Pegs but haven't tried them.

Can't wait to see pictures. Do they tuck away or are they an "always deployed" peg? I would definitely need something that would tuck out of the way for the mountain curves.

Re: K1200lt highway pegs

I would have interest. Dont currently have any pegs installed, and some of the prices have convinced me I can be stubborn and go without.
Thanks!

Re: K1200lt highway pegs

I have not seen any pegs that I like yet. I'm 6'2" but only have 33" legs so the ones I've tried did not fit.

Re: K1200lt highway pegs

Possible interest, currently have MOP and Bobs highway pegs. Curious to see what they look like ? Pictures will help of course when making the decision.

Re: K1200lt highway pegs

I would like comfortable pegs that are low similar to location of MOP, but MOP's are bulky and not easy on the eye. I guess we will have to see pictures, Thanks

Re: K1200lt highway pegs

This is a copy post from another site I wrote when I made a set of Highway pegs for my '06 KLT. Albeit mine is a Trike and is impossible to lay down per se, it may lend some ideas to those wishing to come up with something different than J-Pegs or Mick-O-Pegs......

Highway Pegs on KLT
When I purchased my KLT new in 2006 I’ve wanted to attach some type of Highway Pegs to reposition my legs on those long hauls. I had a set of Mick-O-Pegs previously but was always a little leery with the heels of my boots being so close to the road when they were down. I also considered J-Pegs but felt they were positioned just a little high for me. I finally decided to do some custom mods and attach a more comfortable set of Highway Pegs that are position adjustable. Since converting this 2 wheeled behemoth to a Hannigan trike in 2012 the concern of laying it down is eliminated and opens up new Highway Peg possibilities. Attached are some photos of what changes I’ve made in the area of creature comfort. These modifications seem to be very solid as leg or foot rests. I don’t know if they are sturdy enough to put your full weight on but think they would tend to bend rather than break off. Total cost was around $180.00 for parts and maybe 12-14 hours labor considering the time for some mistakes………….Rob

Re: K1200lt highway pegs

Got to love this sight and the search function. I was about to ask what Bob's Pegs were, then I searched and found the answer and low and behold, I have a set on my bike installed by the PO. I had always assumed he had just adapted some generic pegs from another bike.
Personally I like the Bob's pegs, but I think I would have installed them farther forward.
ebiss9 I like the ones you posted, they look rear good. I assume they are lower and farther forward than the Bob's? It also looks like a tip over might cause some damage? MOP and J-Pegs are a little rich for my blood, I like this option and has me thinking of some possible variations.

Oldmopars, These pegs are adjustable. They will rotate >180 degrees, (as viewed from the side), thus placing them lower and farther forward. Laying it down will most definitely cause some damage to the peg and/or mount but as I mentioned, mine are on a Trike so a tip over is not an issue.......Rob

Re: K1200lt highway pegs

I would be interested. However since they are still in skunk works, let your friend know it would be cool if they took into account those of us who have the lighting kit. Provided they are mounted in the common location.

Thank you.

Re: K1200lt highway pegs

I know this post is a few years old and I recently noticed the Picasa link is no longer valid and hasn't been since 2016. So with that I'm doing a second post to the thread with an updated link to the pictures. You never know, someone may be able to use the idea.......

Interesting... do you have any photos of the side covers together with the highway pegs? I like the idea of the stretch-ability!

Re: K1200lt highway pegs

Actually I never took pictures of them completed with the covers back on so I went out in the garage and snapped a few. Disregard the dust and dirt, I just haven't had a chance to clean it up yet... Be wary of this set-up on a two wheel as it would definitely take the brunt of a fall. I have a trike so no problem with tip overs!

Here is what I came up with. I used some Kurykyn pegs on the stock mounts and put the stock footrests on Bobs mounts under the wings. I can stretch my legs, place boots either location or even rest them on top. They don't fold, so I hope to not let her tip over again. I do like the other set up shown here, but this works for me.
