I got some new hwy pegs, today. Put them on and they seemed great in the garage. Rode the bike this evening and HATED the positioning. I put them low on the bars, set back and angled low, and turned in slightly. Seeking advice.

Mount em loose on the crash bars so they can be moved up or down without too much effort,then ,with the bike stable,sit on it and place your feet in the position that is most comfortable for you,moving the pegs up or down accordingly until you find that position.Once ya find that position, tighten the mounting bolts up.Done!!!

It helps to have a good strong and patient friend, or a wheel chock that holds the bike in an upright position. Sit on it FOR SOME TIME. Try to simulate your riding position as much as possible. Even after that, you may find out after a few thousand miles you'd like to adjust them. I know I move mine around on occasion. Maybe my legs grow. Or my belly. Nah, must be my legs.

I mounted mine high enough to keep my leg parallel from the knee to the hip which helped to eliminate the heat from burning my thighs. I've now replaced the header pipe with the fuel moto jack pot and I've lowered my pegs so that when my legs are straight out I can rest my heel on the top or stretch comfortability with a little knee bend to reduce back pain. Hope this helps.

I tried the Indian highway pegs, they were not comfortable. They extended out too far for my legs. Returned them. Bought Kuryakyn foot pegs that are more comfortable.
