  • Road Pegs

    Sorry if this has been asked previously. Any idea from the aftermarket companies when we might see some road pegs for the 2018 models? I know there are a couple options out there but was hoping for something a little better looking than removing the engine guard covers, etc. One option looks fine but appear to hang low and afraid they may scrape in the corners.

    I don't know which road pegs you are speaking about, but the Rivco Aero Flip-Out Highway Pegs seem to work for me. I bought the bike used with the pegs already installed. But they look to be easily installed and don't involve removing any parts, other than the engine cover bolts. And they WON'T hit when leaned over. I have tested this aspect.

      at this point, you either remove the covers or use the rivco. theres one other brand i cant remember but everyone has hated them. looks as if the new honda design limits us to these two options. some choose to cut holes in the covers, which looks sloppy but now theres a trim piece that "dresses" up the opening to a more tolerable level, at least for my taste.

      ill be going with these. they seem to fold up and away pretty good but you still have to worry about the attachment point on the bar. as far as scraping, from what your pic shows, itll be a concern. Rivco may be your only option if thats going to be your style

      I just have to keep reminding myself this isnt a bike designed to canyon carve at the same level as lets say an R6. tough to do when those types of roads present themselves though.

        I use the Rivco’s too. Easy install, and 3 adjustment positions. Very comfortable. I just wish they made the entire unit the same finish as the top attach piece. The black is high quality but I think the silver would look better.

          Seriously Kids. anyone who mounts a hi way peg lower than the engine guard,

          Should have one of these mounted on back as a warning to other drivers in the twisty roads.

              Bob. I like the way your Pegs mount up above the black eng guard cover, out of harms way.

                  Thanks Rocky, I'm still not sure if I like the look of the comfort bars but it was the only way I could put the pegs where I wanted them.

                      I have the Rivco's...only issue i have with them is that they stick straight out left and right...there is a small "stop" on the sides to keep the feet from sliding off, but it doesnt feel very comfortable or secure to me..i saw pics from someone here, they drilled a screw into the hing, so that it wont open as wide *the head of the screw stops it from opening all the way up*...its a good idea, i just havent gotten the guts to do it yet

                        Bob, don't they have pegs that go in the comfort bars that bring the pegs back closer to the riders feet?
                        How do you like the Honda upper wind wings? I was going to buy a set, but the price stopped me.

                          They offer arms not pegs, they fix fore & aft, up & down adjustment compared to what I'm using, someone is making longer arms, if you guess wrong you can spend 70.00 on the arms National is offering, it is a guess at what will work for each of us.

                          I bought the wings used for 140.00 so it wasn't so bad. Closed the wings deflect a lot of air off my torso, open is like they aren't there so it is a cooler weather option only for me or rainy weather.
