My highway pegs make a huge difference! Don't forget to adjust them slightly angled toward you so your feet don't slip off.

Hey,

i would like to know if tall boy seat / highway foot pegs help to get relief as i am experiencing discomfort in knees when on road trips. Harley Davidson street 750.
I was concerned about the standard seat height being too low for me. I am 5'11". My knees seemed too high to be comfortable for long when I sat on the standard seat in the showroom. When I took the Learn to Ride class last weekend I made sure to select a bike with a Tall seat. We spent six hours the first day on the bikes and five hours the second day. We were on the seats for 30-60 minutes at a time with 10-15 minute breaks in between riding sessions. At no time did I have any discomfort in my knees, hips, or ankles. The breaks were more valuable from a standpoint of relief from the stress of performing maneuvers - some of them none too easy. If anything I would say I noticed that I was not accustomed to the width of the seat at the rear of the gas tank. There was definitely a mild sense of bow leggedness each time I stepped off for a break.

I would think that if the seat height is more than one inch lower than your inseam measurement before you get on the bike then it will probably get uncomfortable.

What highway pegs do you have? I'm trying to find some that aren't mounted to rollbars, but rather mounted directly to the frame (?)

The tallboy seat alone made the position much more comfortable for me. Night and day difference. I'm 6' 3".

I killed two birds with one stone. Replaced the OEM foot pegs with mini foot boards and reinstalled the foot pegs on the engine guard.

Critter, Do you have any brake concerns with the mini-footboards, or did you have to adjust the brake in any way to make it fit? My guy thinks the mini-footboard may effect my braking ability. Could you post a pic and comment about braking for me? Thanks.

I have the H-D MINI FOOTBOARD CHROME LARGE # 50500109 boards. They fit fine and no problem with the brake or the shifting lever; just install slightly forward. Further, I installed a KURYAKYN LONGHORN ISO BREAKE PEDAL PAD #8044 . Boy what an improvement over that little postage stamp thing that came stock! Sorry-no picture but I highly recommend these improvements.

While this is an old post, I have found a set that attaches to the frame NOT an engine guard. Are you (anyone) still interested?
I would be interested in what you have found.


Under another thread at https://www.hdstreetforums.com/forum/harley-davidson-street-parts-accessories/19849-frame-sliders-print.html there was some chat about the crash rods manufactured in India, but the link no longer works. I picked up a set second hand from ChadWilliam when he traded bikes. I haven't installed them, yet, but have a 200 mile ride coming up next weekend that I want them for.
