Highway Pegs

Anyone out there using propriatary highway pegs ? and if so I assume you mounted them to the tip over wings ?.

Mick o Pegs and other dedicated LT pegs are way too expensive over this side of the pond.

Re: Highway Pegs

After a 8000 mile cross-country trip last year I decided I needed another leg position option. I went with the J-Peg XL's.

It's nice to be able to stretch one's legs out during long days.

One draw back, when my wife rides behind me on her F650, she says I look like a Harley cruiser guy with my feet on the pegs.

Installation is well explained and straightforward.

Re: Highway Pegs

yes i had a set before you just carefuly trim the tip over wing cover for clearence. not just any peg will fit the bar size is quite small. and a piece of advise put the pegs on and dont reinstall the cover untill you find the exact spot for you .(where i thought i wanted them was not exactly where they ended up) if you cant find the proper size send me a pm i have a set in the shop

Re: Highway Pegs

The previous owner of my LT removed the tip over wing covers and clamped on a set of pegs. You can sort of see it in the attached picture. But to be honest, I never use them and I wish I had the covers instead.

Re: Highway Pegs

I think I purchased my pegs (not jpegs) from Sierra BMW, and they too attach to the tip over bars, and I knotched the underside of the plastic protector with a dremmel tool. I don't use them all the often. I also purchased Mick O Pegs, and use them most of the time. I heartily recommend them.

Bob's BMW doesn't have the part HPK-1listed on-line. You will need to contact them to order.
