Can't say for sure but the bar A seems to be inclined at the same angle as the OEM so perhaps one might be able to anchor them there. Can't say for sure.

Looking for a highway peg solution more frugal than Ilium.  Kuryakyn apparently does not make their offset pegs for 1" bars in black (to match my Givi black engine guards).  I bought a pair of knock-offs on ebay that were advertised as 1" but they were actually a bit too large to fit securely.  I even lined the inside of the clamps with electrical tape but that did not solve the issue.

bought some from JandP cycles.  they work well and you can adjust the angle of them.

I have used this style clamp before with good success.  50.00.  Dont care about the chrome etc
Sure black would be better but function is key.

Still using these pegs on your crash bars? I too need an alternate foot position for arthritis in my knees. Can you share some pics?

Yes I have them on my CT.  :001: :001:

I am a firm believer in all the comfort I can get on my bike. Having dislocated my left knee a couple of years back, along with my propensity to ride long distances, I find being cramped on a bike extremely uncomfortable and at great cost to my knees.

The solution!? A higher seat, lowered foot-pegs, highway pegs, bar risers, crampbuster, cruise control, tall windscreen and on and on and on.

Personally, I strongly feel that if you haven't tried something your opinion is really not worth much so guys knocking highway pegs on a touring/adventure bike...steer clear! :015: :015: :015:

My Ilium pegs started life on my K1600 but now look like there were purpose built for the CT. Add DCT and I really have no need for the footpegs whatsoever...when touring and chewing up the high miles!

Pictures are worth a 1000 words so here goes. I did make some slight modicications and if you are thinking of doing this for your CT and need some guidance, do let me know.

Those look bad ass! I’m buying some. I have the SWMotech engine guards, which are 27mm and a smaller size bar (don’t have my calipers on me) - I think they could work. Love the adjustable nature of these.

I ordered them and am gonna make them work with my SW Motech crash bars - which have 2 different size bars in their construction, one being 27mm - the other, I don’t know - don’t have my calipers on me. Whatever, I’m gonna make them work.

I have a set of different highway pegs mounted on a bar mounted on my givi bash plate. Too far forward, even for my 6’5” frame. And there’s a bit too much flex happening. I went down a road, it’s the wrong road - whatever.

Cheers to you!

I bought some cheap ebay ones (approx £30). Frankly they are worth about £20 but on my GS they gave an ‘alternative’ riding position which was useful on long runs. I could alternate between those and the standard ones. I will be looking to fit them to my CT.
