Highway Pegs

I want to get highway pegs for my 2007 fjr. I do not have canyon cages. In old posts I saw some made by Motorcycle Larry. I understand that he is no longer with us. Is there anywhere else I can get similar pegs?

I believe Garauld makes highway pegs specifically for the FJR. Search this forum for his catalogue of products - superb craftmanship!

I have never understood highway pegs for an fjr. It just doesnít seem like they could be anywhere itís be comfortable to put my foot. I know there just me, but I canít conceptualize it. Iím interested in those Of you that have them and how you use them.


Iíve considered t-Rex, because I know theyíll fit on my t-Rex engine guards. Just not sure Iíll ever use them. And I need to make sure nothing touches at max lean (when theyíre folded away).

I had to EDIT/DELETE my first post my Hiway pegs came from Garauld . I am tall and my long legs enjoy them on long rides more so in the summer my knees are outside the fairing and air cools off you thighs etc . I purchased my font lowering peg blocks from Murphs Kit.

I have the Garauld Highway pegs and as stated above they look oe, like they were a factory piece, Gary does good work ! Are they perfect ? No, in my opinion the bars that the pegs attach to need to be about 1” longer to get Them out from the fairing a bit, I talked to Gary about this a bit when I first bought mine and he had legitimate concerns about cornering clearance but I believe extending them out 1” will not cause a problem but I need to mock up the longer bars and verify no clearance issues at max lean angles.

The good thing about using the highway pegs is that it allows me to move my feet around from the normal pegs to the highway pegs to the passenger pegs changing the seated pressure points and as also stated above when on the highway pegs gets air flowing from outside of the fairing to cool your thighs and crotch. I use the heck out of mine and as I stated Gary’s pegs look like they came from the factory installed. Perfect match to the engine paint. Highly recommended !

I have MCL hiway pegs that attach to the engine cases. They are not conducive to actually putting your feet (bottom) on them as the corner of fairing will catch you just below the knee.
The way I use them is by hanging my heels over the pegs and it creates a nice change in position. I often will use only one side or the other separately and rarely more than 10 min or so at a stretch(mostly for a position change) unless slabbing it, which I rarely do.


One side note is that fuel mileage will drop about 3mpg on the instant readout if you have both feet out into any kind of headwind.


I have larger rear peg(boards) and I find it also comfortable to hang my heels on the rear pegs (if no pillion)for a few minutes at a time.

I have MCL rear lowering blocks, heat shields and foot boards. I can rest my heel on the rear peg with boards off. Sure makes it nice to have 3 different boot ( size 12) locations with Garauld's Hiway pegs mounted on the engine and Murphs front lowering blocks for the front pegs.

Bill I have them on my TRex guards and to be honest I don't use them all that much (FJR is really not a bike for hwy pegs), BUT they are nice to have should you decide to stretch and change the position once in a while, and it's a welcome farkle if you experience hip cramps, back pain or long seating discomfort etc. No issues with leaning the way I have them mounted, and I can always mount them to be "above" the guard pipe or higher.

Which mounts/pegs are those? I haven't found anything that secures well to the 7/8 T-Rex bars How did you get them to stop spinning on the bars?
