So I own an 05 K1200LT. For the most part, I'm fairly happy with the bike. But, having had 5 knee surgeries, the locked foot position on the foot pegs kills me. I took my first road trip last weekend, 380 miles on day one and 520 on day two. My knees were barking at about the 250 mark on day one and by the time I got home, it was unbelievable. I'm running with Run For The Wall this year, picking up in Odessa, TX and going all the way to DC. Return trip will route me through Ft Campbell, KY to visit my son serving with the 101st Puking Pigeons. I'm thinking ****-o-pegs AND jpegs are getting put on before I depart.
I've tried contacting mickopegs through the website ridingiswonderful.com and through Facebook. After a week, still no response. I've watched eBay regularly since buying the bike for mickopegs, but have yet to come across any. So I'm wondering if anyone has any they want to part with or know of anyone?

Travis,

Dont know about the Highway pegs, but the darius floorboards, lowered, make a huge difference. The floorboards feel so much better, I can ride twice as far without hip or knee issues.

I have the **** o pegs, j pegs and Darius footboards and it makes a huge difference. At first it was the **** and j pegs which really do help. I found I used the **** o pegs more often to allow my leg and knee to straighten out. The j peg would cause my hip to cramp but that's from a lack of stretching.

The footboards are lower and forward about an 1 1/2" I believe. These made the biggest difference for me. I can move my feet around, no ache in the knee and I can still use the other pegs. The only issues I've experienced are they will touch down on curves or rises in curves so you have to slow down and pay attention sometimes. I also notice heat off of the exhaust on the left side at slow speeds but nothing major. Of course the shifter and brake levers are higher but after a day or two of riding it's none issue. I'll keep the boards on until I'm going to hit twisties or get aggressive then I'll put the stock pegs back on. Keep a look out in the classified section and do a general search in google to see what you can find.

Installation Instructions Needed!

I purchased a used set of ****-O-Pegs for a 08 K1200LT, I specifically need the template for cutting the trim panel on the safety bar. Their website (ridingiswonderful.com) has been down for at least ten days and they have only responded to one email advising their system is down. I can't find a phone number. I know a lot of you have installed the pegs and I'm hoping you have a set of instructions laying around.

Thanks in Advance!

This is just a little sideways, but if anyone is wondering what the heck is going on with the ****-O-Peg website (ridingiswonderful.com) and email, well here’s the reason. Jay **** (****-O-Pegs) sent me an email today and informed me their website is down ... and their webhosting company is closed due to the Texas hurricane. He’s not sure when they'll be open again, but once they are, and he can get our website back up, everyone will be able email and browse the website.

I'd take him up on these. you'll never be able to tell the different's between new and used. unless you keep them down to long into the turns, even then you can't really tell.
there's plenty of mounting instructions out there as well.
