I am not sure my bumper bars have the proper mounting to use them and the rubber covers also were open on the ends so they could fold in flush.

Re: Highway Pegs

It looks like everything is there and they mount on the crash bar. I have seen them on other bikes and they go flush under the wings. These are XL pegs and I would have to open them before riding since I would probably crash trying to open them up.

I don't have anything on the underside of my wings to screw those puppies into and the flimsy screw mount that holds on the bumper cover sure isn't strong enough.

Re: Highway Pegs

Not pictured are the brackets that mount under the tip over wings.
These are required for mounting J-Pegs; they come as part of the original setup.
The J-peg mounting brackets replace the OEM part that is under the tip over wing.
Without it the J-Pegs are pretty much useless.

Also, the J-pegs pictures look like the extended version for very tall riders. The standard J-Pegs do not have an angle in them.
I am 5'10" and had the standard J-pegs. When I tried the extended ones, they were too far away. Unless you are close to 6' tall, I don't think you'd want the extended ones.

Re: Highway Pegs

Found this thread with pics of an install showing the new bar under the bumper. If that isn't included, then like CharlieVT said, they re useless. I was wondering.

Re: Highway Pegs

I find my J pegs to be useless. They are just to high and are not comfortable. The mick o pegs look comfortable but there so damn ugly.

Re: Highway Pegs

I bought the LT with them on, but removed them to mount SuperBrite LED's at that location. They just screwed into the crash bar on the bottom. Are there different crash bar styles? These are aluminum on mine.

Re: Highway Pegs

As Curtis said, there are different crash bars. The OEM is truly just a triple bend bar/tube secured with a bolt on each end piece, after the ends are inserted in the mounting point. The makers of the Jpegs provided a replacement crash bar of billet solid material (aluminum?) with appropriate mounting holes for inserting the Jpegs. Jpegs by themselves, w/o the replacement crash bar, are useless. In addition, some trimming of the black bumper guard is also necessary for JPEG mounting. HTH.

Re: Highway Pegs

So can you remove the pegs and replace the plastic and go back to the original look with the billet crash bar left in place?
