Hi Guys,
Has anyone added Ergo II pegs to the 2012 yet? I know the common setup for previous models was with 6" arms and Ergo II pegs. But I hear from a few 2012 owners, that the slightly wider fairing makes it uncomfortable because your legs rub against the fairing. Now I see that Kury. has a set of mini arms that extend further out to the sides and keep you away from the fairing. Has anyone tried this set up ? Also, it appears that the mini arms also require a longer reach to the pegs.
Thanks,
Dave

I have the 6" ergo II and like them. I'm 6' tall and can put my feet on them or hang my heel over them. When my heels are on top my leg is against the faring but not uncomfortable. No fairing interference with my feet on them.

I'm 5'9" and use the standard 6" arms. Seems to work for me.

Fairing width is the issue

At 6'4 and I have the ergo with 6" arms.
I do hit the fairing sides.
Riding split for a long way will be an issue.
I am not sure longer pegs would matter
I just cant do the splits

I am 5'10" and I tried the Rivco arms. The quality of the product was very good, but I just could not get comfortable. I've settled in on the Mic-O-Pegs arms with Rivco footrests.

If you want to try the Rivco arms I'll ship them to you. If you like them send me $100.00, if you don't like them then just return them within 30 days.

I'm only 5'9", just mounted the ergo II with switch blades. It felt comfortable to me, but haven't had it out to test ride it for comfort yet.
Will get to give them a good try Sat. on the way up to Region D rally. :eek:4:

Just be careful with those boards... they are known for reducing your lean angle. Yes, I saw the position you have them in.... just keep in mind that you can not lean the bike over as far with that setup.
