Default Anyone using the new Kuryakyn Swingwing pegs?

They look like the perfect alternative for me. My legs get a bit cramped on long rides, don't want to use forward controls, don't want to use highway pegs, and not crazy about using a 4" extender unless I have no alternative.

These are simple replacements for the existing pegs, but you can unlock and swing the arm outwards and forwards (2"+2"). Problem is, you have to unlock them with your hands, so you have to do this before getting on the road.

Looking for positive/negative feedback on them before purchasing.

These are exactly what I was thinking of getting for my Jackpot for highway pegs instead of getting bars, clamps, and seperate pegs.

I'm signing papers on the Jackpot today at lunch...so obviously I'm not using them yet...


Just a thought, it's not a big deal to pull over and flip them out if it's not a complex task, then you can play catchup to your buddies if you're riding with them

Those look like a good alternative to extensions. Plus, when they are closed you get a floorboard effect which will spoil you to the point of never wanting to go back to just plain pegs. At least that's what happened when I installed some Kury heel rests on a Night Train a couple of years ago. I kept them and got the adapter to use them on the JP I had for a while.

I don't want floorboards but would like more adjustability for longer rides in my foot location.

So how did these work out on the Hammer? I know you don't have that bike any more, but if you're still around, I'd love to hear what your overall impressions ended up being, thumbs up or down?

If you're still around, please share or anyone else who may have bought these.

I have these on my other bike and love them. Use them more as mini floorboards then with the swing out

They were perfect for me in every way. I liked them so much, that I kept them swung open probably 85% of the time, I would only close them when I knew I'd be riding aggressively, they did scrape quickly.

They give you about 2" forward, and also 2" out at the same time, so you can get a total of a 4" stretch with them. The nicest thing is that you can really get about 4 different foot positions with them, all at varying rates of stretch. Much of the time I found that heel on the peg and angling my toes outward to have the toe of my boot on the outstretched wing was my ideal position. On long rides I could alter my foot position enough to keep from getting cramped or going numb. Throwing my feet all the way out on the outstretched wing was like using highway pegs.

When I wanted to, I'd just fold 'em back up, and it was like riding at stock peg position, but with more under my boot, like a mini floorboard.

Overall, it was m favorite mod on the bike. If my new bike didn't have floorboards, I would absolutely use these again.
