I'm looking to add some highway pegs to stretch my legs when needed. I cropped a photo from MadStad website that has pretty much what I'm looking for. I contacted them but no response. Does anyone know what components are used to make this happen? I'm fine with doing some custom work but will buy if something is already available. Thanks

Yes there are frame sliders in the pic but also a aluminum lever with a folding peg.

Same here, but I have to admit, they aren't very functional as highway pegs....at least mine aren't.

That setup looks very light weight. I wonder how equal the left side matched the height and motor width to the right side. Get those and some sixteen inch risers for my grip height ...

An alternative to foot pegs is to just stand up while riding for about 15-30 seconds and stretch out the legs and the lower back. It works great.

haven't cramped up bad enough to need them yet but the sw motech frame sliders make a shelf big enough to rest my calfs on and im a fairly big person (5'10" 255lbs) my knees were my problem on my sv, on the fz the stock pegs and corbin seat seam to do the job thus far. haven't gone on any all day long rides on it yet but ive done a few 5-6 hour rides

I have wanted an a stand up peg setup. I have watched many Dakar over the years and standing is usual. I expect for GYTR to bring a safety cage with forward standing position pegs and skid plate. The amount of dirt flying videos out there make me wonder what they are waiting for.
I'll just watch a movie like this click for some riders movie to pass some winter time .

Welcome here and way to create a response.
My early childhood memories include losing moms hand and staring at a couple at a red revving a h-d 900 in the 60's with straight pipes. They were cool to a six year old. Fear it or embrace it.
Fz9-tx-guy posted the pics in the install thread but to find the actual builder of that peg setup is beyond me.

I'm very interested in this.
Also, can you get tapered apehangers?A sissy bar would be good too.And also various chromed skulls to scatter around the bike.
Oh,I'm also interested in getting some pirate costumes to wear.
