    Default Jac-Knife Highway Pegs

    I've been trying to find some highway pegs. My legs are too short to do the traditional peg on the crash bar without adding the long extensions. They work, but I don't like the way they look, too much crap.

    I poked around looking at options and ran across the Jac-Knife. I thought, ok, good idea. I bought a set from JP cycle and installed them. They're not plug-n-play, you need to do a few mods to the boards with an angle grinder and drill. But, easy enough to install, it took me about 2 hours total. The first one about 1:15, the second one 45 minutes (learning curve).

    I should've went right to the source. There's a small gusset spacer that he will include with your order, but JP doesn't have them. It goes on the front floorboard mount to stop torsional twisting of the board. After I installed mine, I noticed they were spongy so I emailed the company. The owner sent me a set, no cost, no shipping, nadda. Great guy.

    They also offer a set with a small pin that sticks up a bit above the board so you can kick them out with your heel. JP doesn't have them, even though the catalog picture shows the pin, so mine are without. Still, it's seems pretty easy to hook your toe under and flip them open while riding.

    Anyway, I like them so well I thought I'd share.

    Closed, and almost invisible (one of my favorite features)

    Flip 'em open with your toe, they move from open to closed really easy.

    They have a model with a pin that sticks up. You can hook your heel on it and open them. That's the model I thought I was getting, but JP's catalog picture is wrong. Another good reason to go to the source if you buy.

    yeah those are real nice.

    You couldn't use a set of long angle highway pegs?

    That's what I'm running.

    Like I said in the first post, I don't like the way the long pegs clutter up the bike.

    I agree. I like how they hide. Do you ever scrape your floorboards? I scrape mine all of the time and would have those torn up pretty fast probably.

    There's a wear screw on the bottom. It takes the hit instead of the peg.
