Recently purchased these pegs. Install was simple and easy. First of all I am not a mechanic so this maybe simple to some but not so much for me.....lol. I am 6 feet tall with a 32 inch inseam and I am struggling to get them adjusted so my legs don’t pinch on the fairing. Any help/suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

Check in there catalog think you can get the longer arms for them

I have the long arms and still have a similar problem. I lowered mine slightly which helps with the pinching but they ground pretty easily.
I don't use mine a lot, just occasionally on longer trips to give the legs a stretch for a few minutes.

For me and because 5th gens are wide and the cowl gets in the way, I don't find highway pegs all that comfortable. Plus, I always like my hands and feet close to my controls. Therefore, I removed my Kury highways pegs over a decade ago.

I am the opposite, only 5'7". Mine are adjusted to the rear. I found that getting the peg lower helped. Then my shin didn't hit the wide part of the fairing but went under it instead. I don't know if that's possible having them forward.
The directions say not to have the arms in a downward angle. Mine are just slightly downward facing the rear.
The fairing's are the problem, they stick out pretty far.

I did the same, I have the long arms and they are rear facing and down slightly, only way my legs didn't hit the fairings

Thanks everyone for your thoughts and ideas. Just got back from a week of work so will do some fiddling.
