Has anyone mounted a set yet?
Which way are you going with highway pegs? Thanks for the replyI have had mine setting in the box in the garage for a couple of weeks. The bike was stored for the winter in such a manner that I can't get to the left side without a lot of trouble. I MIGHT be getting it out of storage this Friday and will mount the comfort bars sometime next week. I will try to remember to update you on what I like and don't like once mounted. I saw them on a display GW Tour at the Chicago MC show and liked them enough to order them.
@Tomcatdriver I concur with you on the Rivco-I really tried to like them they do fit into the style of the new GL1833 with the exception of partial covering the HONDA engine logo-yukk. Being I have short legs was another issue had to drill another adjustment hole to get the pegs more rearward. I'm not really impressed with the design of the Comfort bars per se, I'll wait until I see one in person and draw my own personal conclusion then decide if I'll try em. Looking forward to more reviews and pics-video's of them as time goes on.After riding one season (19,000 miles) with Rivco pegs, I have the Comfort bars on order along with the pegs and extensions that were purchased from "Wingstuff". The Rivco's while stylish were not comfortable enough for me. The actual peg was too small and quite slippery leaving the foot to want to slide outward and off. To get your foot to ride squarely on the peg requires canting your foot inward as your ankle gets pushed outward by the part that the actual peg folds into when closed. It became too fatiguing to maintain that position while in the saddle for eight or nine hours a day.
New equipment is due here by Saturday and weather permitting they'll get tested on Sunday. Will follow up once tested.
I differ from the GW riders who seem to be concerned with style as opposed to comfort. Ergonomics differ with each rider. I'll do whatever I have to to achieve a seating position that will allow me to stay in the saddle comfortably for nine to ten hours per day. While the comfort bars might not be the most stylish looking device, I betting that they will offer what their name implies ... comfort. Sunday will tell.
The website info claims you can use a 1" type quick clamp if you don't use their mounting point so the Longhorn's should work.bob2002,
I believe that you will be able to use the "peg mounts" and the pegs but not the longhorn bar. Then all you should have to do is purchase the comfort bars and the footrest adjustable mounts to provide a 360 degree rotation for just about any position. Have a look at the comfort bars on the Wingstuff site. In the photos area is a good picture that shows all the possible positions you can get them into.
bob2002, thanks for the photos! I have ordered these ones from Kuryakyn:This is my current set up for highway pegs while very good I'd like them to be a little higher, I could flip the quick clamps the other way but that would mean cutting into the plastic which I don't want to do so I'll see what the reports are. One concern I have with the comfort bars is the reach may be too far forward for my liking.
Do the extensions have any kind of anti slip groves cut into them?
I have my black comfort bars ready to mount along with the extra black 76MM extensions and black Kuryakyn foot pegs. My questions is why are the bolts that connect the extensions to the comfort bar chrome instead of black?Just finished the install and they do not. I'll be adding two tooth lock washers to each side. They are fairly secure as is and very comfortable the way I have them set.
