Default Mid Pegs

My attempt at mid pegs. Dont try this unless you have a lot of time on your hands. I used 1" sq. tubing and a welding machine stock passenger pegs. much more comfy than putting your feet back to the original passenger peg position. I will most likely move the brake side peg out 1 more inch for more clearance.
Will take more pics later.

That would make for a much more comfortable ride. Did you loose any ground clearance? When are you going to move the controls back?

Amazing rxape......well impressed.
This has been talked about so much in the past, most just gave up.
I hope you don't mind, but I'd like to copy your idea for those European trips I do.

1256Day did a similar mod using some cheap pegs. There's no way I could use this one though -when I got my bike I was melting my shoes every day because the previous owner took off the wire loom that works as a pipe guard for your right foot. So I had to put one back on. I'd be melting my shoes every day on this thing

Hey, could you show us while actually sitting on the bike? With both the original position and the modified?

Your Back, Thighs, etc, etc will thank you for the foot position. I did something similar and love it! I thought I would have ground clearance issues, nope. I've gotten use to moving my feet back and forth. Only really use them on long strech's of freeway and keep my feet on the stock pegs in the city or in the twisty's.

Without a doubt (IMHO) the best mod I've done.

Hey LD

Only the front pipe is uncovered. Where the Comfortable Foot Pegs are mounted your feet are protected by heat shield.

Nice job! Did you lose any of your cornering clearance? Since I have forward controls I sometimes put my feet on the passenger pegs instead! Makes me feel like Im on a sport bike.

Not on my pipes. They have shields on both -and I burn my legs on the back pipe too, so I know it wouldn't work for me.

I did a relocation of the passenger pegs . Moved them down 5" and back 2" . my 16 year old daughter wouldn't ride on it with me cause she said she always felt like she was going to roll off the back. Says this is way more comfortable. I find I can throw my feet up on them comfortably now too.
