    New pegs installed. Former stock peg broke off...I could say I leaned it over too far but... it just fell over... from a complete stop.:(:

    You can run that line in the up position and on the inside of the swing arm (as TTP suggests), or you can run it the down position and on the outside of the swing arm (seen below).

    He emailed me and said "we also offer a oversize set, which has a bigger overall peg platform (where your foot goes). The oversize ones go for $129 due to the increased cost of the oversize material needed to make them from. They are 2 inch wide by a little over 5 inches long." Pegs are machined from a 1 1/8th pound solid billet of 6061-T6511 aircraft grade aluminum. The finished weight of each foot peg is 4 1/2 ounces.

    Great service, fast and fit as they should. 10 minutes to swap out. You might want to lower your brake pedal and shifter a notch or two as these sit lower than stock pegs.

    I have the oversized ones, and I really like them. I had them powder-coated black, which is the first time I've done something like that (purely aesthetic reasons). Quality piece of equipment.

    Do those pegs still pivot up? I am asking because while I would love a little more leg room (6'4") I scrape my pegs often in some of the canyons I've become familiar with around here. The stock pegs do leave plenty to be desired, but they have that skid screw on them, flex/pivot up easily, and have yet to snap off when the sparks fly. If the pegs were even lower that would mean more scraping...do you KnL owners think they could hold up?

    The pegs pivot up just like the stock pegs. They use the same pin and spring as the stock pegs. I have had those pegs on my Bonneville for the last 5000 miles and have been very happy with them. They have a much better grip on your boots when standing on the pegs in rain or mud. I do drag the pegs fairly regularly. They do not have any skid screw on them so when they drag the actual aluminum of the peg touches. The aluminum at the end of the peg is fairly thick and blocky (about 1 inch). So far I have worn about 1/8 inches of aluminum off the bottom corner, so I expect these pegs to last for years. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

    I like the idea of powder-coating them black. <o:p></o:p>

    twolf. What shift lever is that?<o:p></o:p>

    I guess the other question is how do the KnL pegs compare to a set of PivotPegz?

    I'm looking for a pair of stock scrambler headers. I have carbs so I'd rather not have a pair with the O2 sensors. If you have a stock set, please give me a PM. Also, I could use some stock factory exhaust shields. Sorry to change the subject of this thread. I really love my Scram and I'm looking to make her perfect. It's best to actually ask the other happy owners. Thanks!

    Just purchased the MetalMule pannier racks. In a week or two, once I get my tax return, I'll be buying the Kriega Overlander 60, and then I think I'll finally have a good luggage setup for the bike. Just in time for the riding season :evil

    Love my Pivot Pegs off road and on. They never scrape. If you order them, you do not need those lame black rubber "toppers." FYI, they are expensive. Also, PP was having trouble fitting 2012 Scramblers a while back. Not sure if they worked that out. I think the mounts changed on the 2012 model.

    Good thing mine's a 2010 model, manufactured in July/August of '09.

    I've been thinking about the MetalMule racks for my Scrambler,so I can mount my Zega Pros on them. Will you post up some pics when you get them in?
    Thanks!

    Yes, you could go over to Triumphrat.net.

    Or you could go back to page 1104 of this very thread where I posted the exact same thing. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showpost.php?p=20418306&postcount=16560

    :wink:

    Incidentally, since it looks like we're getting good weather this weekend, I'll probably put the side cases on (Duratool cases - basically cheap Pelican copies.) I'll be using the Happy Trail brackets to connect them.
