Default XC/XR Victory Highway Pegs (pics)

I ordered the OEM Victory highway peg kit from Ken's Sports for my upcoming weekend trip. I could have bought all the components from the aftermarket for about the same money, but I liked the design of the OEM parts and guaranteed fit.

Here are the parts with a can of Coke for scale. There were a few minor nicks in the metal of the brackets but nothing that would be visible:


The instruction sheet makes it look like you are supposed to install the brackets in the upper position. Because of the design and the curves of the brackets, you can mount them in an upper or lower position. The upper seemed way to high for me so I chose the lower setting. Here it is on the bike:


Here is a side view with the pegs flipped up. There's plenty of chrome to go around and the pegs are solid, heavy units.


Front shot of the bike with pegs:


Driver's view:


I did the install by myself and got the left one adjusted just as I wanted, but had a problem making the right side the same. But then I discovered the secret. Loosen the one that needs adjusting, and flip up both pegs while sitting level in the driver seat. now, you can easily eyeball it to make it even with the other side. Then carefully tighten it up while tightly holding the position of the peg. Oh, and also use blue Locktite. The instructions don't specify to use it and the bolts don't come with it on already, but it's a good idea.

I am 6' and they are in the perfect position for me. I can stretch out with a slight bend in my knees and put my feet up in the arch and practically go to sleep. Or, I can prop my heel on the floorboards and rest my toes on the pegs. Totally worth it

And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

They look good and sturdy. It does look like a bit more of angle to them would make them more useable as in the feet not slipping off the ends. I wonder if they can be bent some to accommodate a better position. What do you think?

Then again; maybe it's just the angle of the pics. They may be just right the way they are. Maybe someone will have them at the meet this weekend.

I just looked these brackets up and it looks like they are around $150 (PN:2877367)

Just about the same price as the Kewlmetal brackets if one includes the peg mounts and the pegs. It's also interesting how the floorboard mounted brackets are about $20 more. Looks like more drilling involved in making them...

It's difficult to get an idea of how the pegs are positioned by looking at the pics. The brackets are actually bent inward at the peg location to make it more natural angle to your legs. The positioning feels perfect for my height. The only thing I played around with a bit was the rotation of the peg so that it would be parallel to my boot. Now this thing is like a recliner.

They could probably be bent too if you had a vice but you would risk ruining the chrome. I think they got the angle pretty good though as is.

Exactly - price is about the same. I liked the look of the pegs and probably would have gotten those same Kuryakin pegs anyways, so I thought I'd go with the OEM kit. $163 to my door from Ken's Sports. I didn't go with the floorboard kit because I think it would interfere with cornering clearance.

Nice work. They look great.

Any chance that these could be mounted so that they would go the other way and be further away? I'm 6'7" with a 38 inch inseam.

You could go with the Kury offsets. Seems to be the most popular way of handling that issue.
