 Though my 2022 Harley Ultra Limited is a very comfortable motorcycle, past experience has taught me that being able to change my position from time to time is definitely important.

I have used this same set up for over 100,000 miles and it was an easy decision to put them on this motorcycle.

Description:

Stretch out for added comfort. This Adjustable Highway Peg Mounting Kit can be set for shorter riders, and it can be reversed to reach far forward for those with long legs.

• 5-inch angled peg mounting kit in gloss black finish

• Angled design allows the arm to reach back and around to clear fairing lowers

• Arm can be raised and lowered for a custom fit

• Mounting clamp firmly grips the engine guard, and the locking design secures the peg at the desired angle

 

 There are two versions of the Angled Highway Peg Mounting. A short and a long version. I am using the long version.

 They are available in Black which I am using and Chrome.

 There are numerous styles of foot pegs that can be used with this set up and they can be found on Harley's web site.

Description:

Understated but powerful, the Kahuna Collection's rich gloss black surface is surrounded by deeply grooved, rich black rubber that provides grip and traction where needed.

• Gloss Black finish.

 

 Installation:

 If you work on your own motorcycle and have some basic tools this should be an easy install.

 

Tools:

 3/8 Drive Ratchet

3/8 Drive Foot Pounds Torque Wrench
3/8 Drive Foot Pounds Torque Wrench

3/8 Drive 5/16 Allen Socket

3/8 Drive 1/4 Allen Socket

1/4 Drive Ratchet With 3/32 Allen Socket

 You will also need Blue Thread-locker (243)

 
I have found it easier to install these parts using a lift, so that the motorcycle is in an upright position.

 

 Position the Mounting Clamp Halves around the engine guard. The head pin should be upward. The cogged face of the clamp should face the extension arm.

Using the screw from the kit, align and install the angled arm with washer positioned between the clamp ears. 

 

During The Following Steps I Suggest Tightening Parts Tight Enough So That They Do Not Move But Can Be Adjusted Before Final Torque.

 
 
Securing Arm To Engine Guard

  Position the arm so that when footpeg is installed it will not interfere with the foot controls or hit the ground when cornering.

Install the D-spring washer so it is positioned inside the footpeg mount with the square edge toward the inside of the mount. 
 
 Apply a couple of drops of Blue Thread-locker 243 to the threads of bolt and mount footpeg to the arm. Torque to 19 Foot Pounds.

 

  Sit on upright motorcycle and test position of assembly. Adjust as necessary.

  Repeat procedure on opposite side of motorcycle.

 

Measure both arms are the same height from the ground and pegs rotated to a comfortable position. Put Blue Thread-locker on footpeg bolt and Torque to 21 Foot Pounds

Install the setscrew into the lower of the two holes on the back side of the arm and adjust until the angle of the footpeg is comfortable for you.

Editor's Note: Sitting on a bike for positioning is fine, but before you get crazy with Loctite, take it for a ride.
