TRex cages & Hwy pegs

Is anyone have experience using -T-Rex canyon cages w sliders and Garauld hwy pegs? I already have the Garauld hwy pegs ??. Looking at pictures @ t-Rex site both would be a tight fit? Gen3
Thanks

If your referring to Garauld's brackets for highway pegs, I don't think they'll work with the T-Rex engine guards. Mounting pegs to the 7/8" tubes is a PITA all it's own. I bought several pairs of traditional pinch clamps and shimmed the heck out of them only to have them constantly slip. I bought a pair of cheapo handle bar risers off ebay and so far they're working pretty well: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Pair-Motorb...MAAOSwmCVY-car Pics installed:

I didn't look hard enough as you can find them in black as well for nearly the same money. I probably should get some plasti-dip and fix my color coordination problem.

Someone on here posted a while back about some sourced from Germany which were for BMW's but were priced accordingly as well. They looked great though if you had $250 to spend.

That is AWESOME BigC!
Because I have been looking for a “Footrest” solution to deal with my T-REX RACING Engine Frame Sliders... The color coordination might be a small issue. I have located this bracket arrangement in terms of color coordination...

Nonetheless, that’s a big step forward...

I would mention a couple things about the clamps your looking at. The footpegs I used are the typical Rivco anti-vibration flavor. There is a standard hex head bolt that it uses to secure it to whatever your mounting it to. Now, if your incredibly lucky, that allen head bolt may work for you. I've never been that lucky but that's not to say others aren't. The other issue is tightening it and or adjusting it may or may not prove difficult. The main reason I bought the ones I did was because it was made for a hex head bolt. The ones that came with the foot pegs worked perfectly. Is plasti-dip starting to sound better now? :P

I would mention that I used some cloth backed sand paper as well just enough to go around once maybe half again beyond that. The kind plumbers would use to shine up copper pipe before soldering if that makes sense.

BTW, welcome to the forum!

Reviving this old thread. Visited T-Rex's website and submitted my email addy so they can send a reply when these engine guards are back in stock. Adding these is my plan for this winter.
