something on the funny side...

It's been a good week. Crash bars are on front and back....highway pegs won't stay in place... sigh...
so I decided to update...
Buzz and Woody are on the sides of my license plate... it's my silly signature thing... on any motorcycle I ride... so I made them "of the times"...

the masks are made of 3M "blue tape".

Great way to make the rear of your bike stand out! Sorry to read that your highway pegs won't stay in place. I struggled with the same thing. I may have solved the problem - only time and repeated use will tell - I wrapped a piece of radiator hose around the T-Rex engine guard, to provide some additional, slightly compressable thickness to the guard. I then mounted the highway peg clamp over that thicker part. The highway pegs seems secure when I sit on the bike and rest my feet on them. Today was my first ride of the year, and I forgot to give them a try

Radiator hose! Great idea. I plan to try a,piece of aluminum flat bar. Wonder where I could get radiator hose? Auto store?

Maybe add a wrap of skateboard tape under the peg mounts ?

I'm considering drilling through the mounts and into the bars and putting in 1/8th inch pop rivets: two per side... three if necessary.


I have yet another set of pegs coming on Thursday, so I want to try those first.


I will look up skateboard tape.

Reminds me of the vanity plate I saw a few years ago,
"B E Y O N D"
It was on an Infinity.

I'm not so sure adding a group of perforations into crash bars is a good idea..

Nope. Drilling can only weaken the structure. That's why it will be the method of last resort.

If you do drill think about a 1/16 roll pin drilled all the way through to each side rather than a series of rivets. The pin would be stronger.

The pegs that trex sells for their own cages wont stay in place?

No commercials. No dictators.
