Its been a while but I am almost certain that I got the bars here along with the hwy pegs. http://www.twistedthrottle.com/




They came separately though. Just go to the page for what fits your bike. Then scroll till you find the SW-Motech crash bars and click on them. Then read about them. They come with holes for foot pegs and some for lights. Then there are quick links to foot pegs there...

If you use the holes to mount a light bracket. You are going to have to buy or make a super heavy duty bracket by hand. I made some awesome LED lights for my bike. But the brackets kept harmonically vibrating till they fatigued and broke. I have a metal shop at work so will get around to it eventually. Oh and my center stand is SW and my skid plate is Happy Trails.

May I ask how you got in that situation.

After you wear those sahara's out, switch to TKCs. You'll never regret it.

That's a good idea, I keep biners/rope and pullies in my hunt pack to pull that big bear/deer up hill. (you have not lived until ya drag a 400# black bear 4 or 5 miles in the backcountry)

About two years ago I was blasting down hill on rd4 in Coopers Creek and face planted in deep new gravel, would not have taken much to look like the bike in your pic.

Hey! I grew up in Bville! I actually used to live near coopers creek and would ride my mountain bike over there on camping trips with my friends. We would take old FS roads on the side of a mountain to get there though. I couldn't afford a motorcycle then as I was still a kid but have one now. Hmmm... I wonder if I know you? I graduated in 2000.

Probably not, relocated here in '04. A bunch of the guys I work with have kids that age.
