So i installed my swinging pegs that my g/f got me for christmas. Ordered the adapters and started the install. I did change one thing on the install. I installed 2washers on each side of the adapter to take all that slack out of the mount for a MUCH more solid mounting not more wobble in the peg, except for the up and down for the spring. Im still gonna look into taking some play out of the accual swining part of the peg its a little loose for my taste but its fine for now. Here are some pics of the pegs and my bike in its current state with the new mustang seat and backrest.

very nice, i have been eyeing the very same pegs. so without the washers it is not a tight mount then? how difficult was the install?

The install was VERY easy it was about a 15minute install without having to do the washers..... It wasn't real sloppy maybe alittle more than stock but with the extention on there the slop looked really bad so just simply added washer to take up the slack made a world of difference. In the pics you can see on the one side where i installed the washers. Now I just need to work on the pivoting part its pretty loose but it makes for very easy operation, I dont know if theres any way to make them tighter or not but im gonna look into it more come spring.

Thanks for looking guys and gals. Im pretty happy with them.

That looks really good! The seat plus pegs should make for great riding comfort.

A Mustang seat for my Nomad arrives on Wednesday. I've already got the pegs so should be joining your configuration shortly. :biggrin:

Those pegs look way cool... swept back they really look good (IMHO)... kinda like a mini floorboard.... Looking good...

Very nice!
I was thinking of them or the Kury SwitchBlades.
Since I've got the forwards, I went with the Switchblades.... after seeing your pics, I might have been wrong.
