The ones for the front looks like what I have. I bought them used off Ebay and I am not sure who made them. What I do know is I love them.

I got a set of Pivot Pegs knock off from ebay.
Now that I know I like them I'll probably spring for the real deal

If they're MCL's then they'll be hard to come by. They're website is still up but the business is closed. I emailed them a few times and I got no response. When I looked up the business which is about 20 miles away from me it said they were closed permanently. I'll look on ebay and see if I can find some. Thanks.

Thanks!

The reason we keep asking about the right side is that the brake pedal has to be accomodated for in the design. From the pics of the mounted MCL, you can see they effectively mount the footpeg wider so the right peg can clear the brake pedal. In yours, it looks like the peg is much more forward than downward. Still an improvement.

I thought about PM'ing you about stopping by on my way home from Houston last night, but I wouldn't have gotten to NB before 9PM. My next guaranteed trip up that way will be when I'm helping with the MS Valero Ride to the River October 6 & 7. I'll PM you my contact info.

If you're interested, charity bicycle rides REALLY like having motorcyclists help. We can share the lane with bicycles MUCH better than the SAG trucks and vans. If you like, you can carry a floor pump - I bungie mine over the pillion seat. Maybe a few simple hand tools. Sometimes sponsors will hand us tire tubes to help with flats. Water bottles can also be helpful, as well as basic first aid kits. Lots of space in those side bags... Our primary purpose is to keep the organizers informed. But pulling up with a floor pump gets almost as many smiles as when I delivered for Dominos

This isn't for the squeamish. I missed a double homicide by about 5 minutes and ended up following the ambulance to the scene. Collisions and traction issues commonly lead to road rash, but sometimes broken bones or worse. One time a rider went down hard at the bottom of a hill and almost lost her nose. People get dehydrated or have an electrolyte imbalance and puke. But those are unusual. You'll easily spend most of your stopped time helping with flats.

You should have stopped we were just stitting here watching the Astros & Dbacks (native Houstonian been watching Astros for 50 years)

You can rotate the pegs in a 360 degree rotation so they can be straight down forward, backwards or even raise them if desired. I chose the position in the photo as it felt best for legroom for me and I really did not want to go straight down. No issue with the brake pedal, I do like the fact these are no further out than the factory pegs so no toe in for the shifter or clutch which is what some of the other setups that move the pegs out then down seem to do. The other benefit was moving my heels slightly forward to keep some of the exhaust heat off of my heels.

I have done support rides before on the ride out of Houston has been many years ago when I lived in Industry TX and Fayettville is always a rest stop. Had a friend that did the ride and I did escort duty a couple of times years ago.

Do these pegs seem as sturdy as the factory pegs? Thanks for sharing. I'm interested in a way to lower my pegs a bit.
