Default Highway Pegs On a Vic XCT

I have Kuryakyn offset highway pegs on a 2012 Vic XCT. Because of the small area of the highway bar exposed and mostly because of the interference from the hard lowers, I cannot rotate these pegs back toward the footbeds. This make them hard for me to reach and limits their usefullness. Are there other styles of highway pegs and mounts that will attach to the stock bars and reach around the hard lowers to position the pegs further back toward the footbeds? Perhaps the Kuryakyn Tour-Tech or the Longhorn offset ones but they do not have to be Kuryakyn brand.

If anyone has experience with better functioning highway pegs on a XCT, please let me know. Thanks.

G'day,

Vinish

SuperDog, Thanks. Those are one of the set I was considering. Any chance you could post a picture of these on your bike so that I could see how far they reach backwards toward the footbeds? Thanks.

G'day,

I also have these. They are nice because they're adjustable. I am 6'3" and I have them slanted forward a little bit. Gives me the ability to really stretch out on the longer rides. I went with the black to match my bike.

G'day,

Why certainly
I had the other style like what PaulJP posted up, but they just didn't reach back far enough for me to be comfortable. The position I have these in is about the only position they will work in for the most part, these hard lowers on the CCT really create headaches for finding pegs that work well but I find these to be just fine and am happy with them, and they are cheaper then the other style that broggyr posted up (although I believe they locate the pegs in pretty much the same location) Oh and I didn't post a pic but when you flip them "up out of the way" they literally flip straight up.

SuperDog, Thanks. Those look awesome. They reach back really well despite the limited positioning allowed by the hard lowers. Looking at the page to which you linked, there are two lenghts available - short (pegs mount 4" back from highway bar) and long (pegs mount 6" back from bar). Do you know which you have?

I have the same mounting hardware that PaulJP posted but with different actual pegs and I agree with you, they do not reach back far enough. The Tour-Tech look perfect. Next on my list after today buying a rider backrest and mounting hardware, Klockwerk Flare windscreen, +2" pullback bars, and a clutch pull relief.

G'day,

Vinish
