hey guys, promised i'd post a pic of the kuryakyn switchblades i put on. sorry it took a few days, my daughter fell and broke her arm. i had to use a spacer (washer) to tighten up the peg and also drill a hole thru the bracket and add a bolt to keep it from leaning out away from the rider. well, i've taken pics 2 times, once on my cam settings and then lowered to the lowest resolution, both say to big. i'll post them

nic job. how do those things work, btw? do they actually flip out like a spring, or is it just something you manually do?

I had those on my Boss and I had to take them off. :confused: When they start dragging in the twisties the blade part folds out then they really start dragging. If you're not a canyon carver you'll be alright.

Supra, here is how I did it. I use something called irfranview http://www.irfranview.com/
Set it as your viewwer for your pics and then just double click your pic. Once open go to (on top) image, click on resize.. then I clicked on
"set new size as percentage of original" I chose 25%

Hope that helps... Sorry for borrowing your pic without asking first.

i have dragged it a few times cornering, usually only put it down when riding on longer stretches. way more comfortable.

My mod, similar but different.

Have to have a screw in behind that you can modify the depth the peg sits at. Bit of work, need to drill and tap.

I eliminated the spring - useless cuz I'll never have highway pegs

Put a custom milled spacer in. Filled that with a brass bushing - (I now have less play than the OEM pegs - still using original pins)

Great part about this is you can adjust your foot angle quite easily. I actually have the left at a slighty (very slighty) higher upward angle than the right.

Should work well, I can't see that the lean angle is going to affect inadvertant release as the pegs are high enough.

One note, if you flip up the right peg (tough to do) all the way by accident with the support bar in the out position, that could rub up against the exhaust pipe and scratch it. You'd have to be stupid to do it but it's possible.

I like the size of those pegs. I like to find them with that metal grate look. Something like the rear brake peddle and why the heck didn't they make the shifter pedal match :(
