Throw them away and do it properly!!!

Made up brackets and fitted my TOP SECRET "Ranger Hi-Way pegs" after thinking that all of the bolt-on pegs were junk. These work fantastically and can easily be clicked in, or out with your feet.
(Let's see how long it is before these get copied.....)

Here they are "closed"


And here they are "out for use" and super comfy


You can also see that i've drilled and countersunk the Weld 86 bashplate for some more ventilation to the VR


These pegs are so much better than any generic bolt-on pegs that i found during my research.

A lot of people comment on them when i'm out and about.

I call them my "Ranger Pegs"

Crap design for that kind of money, I'd send them back.

I also like this simple yet very effective engineering solution

All of the other "fixes" are just handyman type solutions, which although solving a problem, don't do your bike the justice that it deserves. (and they look like crap too!)

Just sayin.......

if they spin that easily- it sounds like the Ubolt is too large, and not contacing enough ot the frame/crashbar tube . . . .

get/make a smaller ubolt, or use something similar to the Kuryakyn dealio . . . .
