  • Rivco Highway Pegs Installed

    Installed my Rivco Highway Pegs today. Not sure if I like the look but they are functional and very well made. Rivco has always had excellent fit and finish. There is a difference between American Made Rivco and brand X made in China.

    I received and installed my Rivco highway pegs today. It took me about 45 minutes in the parking lot. I set it in the center position. I am only 5'7", may move it back one position. One thing I did differently was use a special antisieze for aluminum that I use on my boat, Tefgel.

        Agree, Tefgel is good stuff!

          Can anyone yet attest to how they perform on the road? I like the Rivco's because of their placement above the engine tipover guards. I think any design placing them below the tipover bar is very foolish. But has anyone RIDDEN with these Rivco's yet??

            I took a short ride. I really like the position. I set mine in the far forward position. I have 34" inseam. Legs are fully extended.

              I moved mine to one back from center. I have a 29" inseam. This allows me some flex to knees. By moving foot position up or down on peg I can fine tune to what is most comfortable. So far I am happy with install and riding comfort.

                I cannot wait to receive mine. Got an e-mail from Rivco that they will ship in two weeks, so I guess my Sturgis run will be yet another run without highway pegs.

                      I was told they are powder coated & they have been having a little bit of trouble getting them to match the engines silver color. I had none

                        Rivco should of done their homework on the color. Is it powder coated?

                          The mount is silver powder coat. The pegs are black anodized.

                            I assume you will have to remove them to change the spark plugs.
