What brand & model of mounts work best on a '97 1500? And where on the engine guard do you mount them? The crash bars on my bike flare out at about 45 degrees at the rear of the engine.



It seemsto meyou would have to have some sort ofextension & place the pegs out about 6-8 inches from the bar. Am I assuming correctly?



Does anybody have photos of how they mounted their highway pegs / boards?



Thanks in advance for your expertise....-Rich

I have a 94 and I tried several brands and types with no success, at least to my liking. I finally got the Kuryakyn iso pegs model kur7330 from Direct Line Parts. They mount to the engine guard upper and lower rails and can be mounted anywhere along them. I put mine as far forward as possible and am very comfortable with them. Nice to be able to stretch out some on longer rides. Hope this helps. Dave

+1 on the Kuryakn Iso pegs 7330. I too have a 97. The way they mount, they allow your legs to basically go over the engine guards if that makes sense. They also angle slightly in for a more comfortable position. I also have them mounted way forwards and with these, the engine guards do not interfere with my legs. You can also get them with floorboards but I like the pegs. I got mine here: http://www.chromecrazy.net/product.php?id=1940 because they were the cheapest I could find but if you search, you may be able to get a better price. They are usually in the $150 range though

So let me get this right, your legs go up & over the rear (flared) part of the engine bar?

pwhoever, That is a good price. The lowest price I found so far is $140.00 Thanks guys,,,,,-Rich

I put mine pretty far forward. My legs go in front of the flared portion of the engine guard. The fairing trim down there is called a "deflector", and is about 1" flared out. Show Chrome sells a chrome replacement that is not flared out, and is about 1.1" narrower than stock, which offers a little more clearance for your legs to get the the pegs.

Yup. Up and over. They are very comfortable. I had an old set of highway pegs that mounted on the lower rail of the engine guards that went straight out. I had to get the aftermarket narrow corner fairing corner pieces and even then it wasn't working well. After I added the Kury pegs, I was able to go back to the wide lower pieces with no problem. FWIW, the directions that came with the Kury Cruise Mounts with Dually ISO-Pegs werent the greatest but they work great. Also the left and right engine guards are slightly off set so one should be slightly forward of the other when they are mounted.

From what I've read, theyare a straight bolt on replacement for the old guards. I bought a set off e-bay for $50.00.I will be replacing the old style crash bars over the holidays.....-Rich

The old and new guards interchange. I had to ream out one hole to line up right and the non-hoop bars sit closer to the heads than the hoops do. But they go on nicely other than that. And they look a hellova lot better too. :cooldevil:

Note the Kury pegs just ahead of the boards. I got short legs and these work well for me.
They are mounted to the support bar for the boards.

Here's another shot for you. You can move them forward or back depending on how long legged you are.

Depending on what type of crash bars you have...

Yep, they will, and I posted some pics of my exchange with before and after pics. I placed my Kury pegs along the bottom bar, but I have sometimes scraped the mount on the pavement, and that scares me a little, so I am going to change the mount to the front vertical. I can get the pegs to about the present position using the swivel action of the arms.
