Supposedly I got my MOP's out of that first run for Wing Ding as well. Comparing the finish of yours to the finish of mine, seems like your finish was much better ?? When I received these it was obvious the finish was not as nice as the MOP's I had on my F6B. You can see on the MOP arm a couple streaks where the black anodizing has faded over the months since new.I was fortunate to get their first pair ion the ‘18 at wing Ding last year.
I don't have much of a choice if I want to do 10 hour days comfortably. With my long legs (34 inch inseam) the MOP's that I modified extensively, are the only way for me to stretch my feet out and down.man, im glad they work for you because they DO NOT belong on that beautiful work of art.
yea, definitely didnt mean it as a jab to you. its on the company to improve their design, but if theyre selling....i understand why you need them and offerings have been weak from other companies because of the bike's design.I don't have much of a choice if I want to do 10 hour days comfortably. With my long legs (34 inch inseam) the MOP's that I modified extensively, are the only way for me to stretch my feet out and down.
Top Photo: When I'm on the stock Honda pegs my knees are at or slightly above hip level placing a lot of body weight on my tailbone area. This starts to become uncomfortable after 45 minutes to an hour.
Bottom Photo: These pegs allow me to get my feet out further and down lower than any other option. This shifts more body weight to the back of my thighs. I really only need to stretch out for a couple minutes every now and then and I can ride all day.
Do I wish MOP had provided a product with a better finish? Of course. When I expressed some of my concerns with MOP there response was a non-response.

I had a set of MOP's on my 2013 F6B for 5 years 48,000 miles. They looked brand new except for minor wear on the pegs which is to be expected.Mine have worn some and their response was normal wear and tear.
MOP's for the 18+ are similar to the MOP model KA, KB, KD & KL for the earlier models. The KA were for people with the longest legs (pegs extended lower & fruther forward). KD did not extend as far as the KA and so on. So there were four different versions depending on your inseam.Have any of you had the MoPs on older bikes that the '18? I had them on my '13 and loved them. Do they ride/feel the same?
I installed the MOP on my 2018 DCT....I love them and had them on my 2010....here is what I perceive as an issue with the MOP on the 2018 then compared with my 2010 model....the pegs can not be adjusted high enough such that your boots do not touch the ground on a very short slow moving curve keep in mine I am only 5'6" tall....the second thing which I need to call MOP company is that the black anodized pegs fade within 6 months time...my came dark black and are now light black to gray color...faded poorly in the sun (20,000 miles on them)... I am looking at the design right now to see how it can be modified to raise the pegs so your feet don't drag...if I come up with something will let the forum know....I still love them and would recommend then....
There is "Black Anodized" and then there is "Black Hard Anodized" and there is a big difference between the two. "Black Hard Anodized" is a far more durable finish.I talked with the MOP company, they are aware of the black fading...do not have a solution yet...
From the MOP website Home Page:Setting aside the quality, safety aspect, poor design and absence of customer service issues, I was absolutely dismayed to find my boot heels dragging on the pavement when I was going through the gentle sweepers on I-70 in Glenwood Canyon.
And I only have a 32 inch inseam!
You must have a huge budget to get re-shod after every ride?:laugh:
Do have to admit a vibrating boot is a guaranteed wake-up call:surprise:
My National Cycle comfort bars/RIVCO pegs let me stretch out without the drama:wink2:
