bikemaster engine guard footpegs installed with adjustments
Here's my pair of cheapy engine guard footpegs... will try it out tomorrow on the highway. I had to be creative as they were quite loose as I believe they were designed for 1"-1 1/4" bars. I used the plastic "paddings" that came with the engine guard intended for the U bolts. At the time of the engine guard install, I did not realize that they were included so I used electric tape instead for the U bolts... error became a blessing because when I first installed these pegs I needed to fill the gap so they will stay in place.
Unfortunately, even with the added "padding" around the bars, though they were tightened to the fullest, there was still play which would be dangerous if it were to occur on the highway.
To stop this, I installed metal O clamps used for plumbing and I positioned them and tightened them so that they butted against the pegs preventing them from movement.
The proof will be be in the pudding when I test ride them tomorrow and I will post an update.
