Ciro Frame Mounted Adjustable Highway Peg

I had already purchased the 1 1/4 " floorboard extensions and was about to pull the trigger on the Ciro frame mounted highway pegs but was concerned about the extended bolt lengths. Sent Ciro an email (impressed - they called with a response) and said I'd need to buy longer bolts in order to mount their product. Strikes me that's a lot of stress on an extended platform. Is anyone using the Ciro's with floorboard extensions?

Thanks

I was considering these. But I have the Kuryakyn extensions that mount to the board itself. So I'm thinking it's a non issue for me. But will my extensions be in the way?

If you use grade 8 bolts I think you'll be ok. Unless you stand on your boards how much pressure are you really putting on them?

I may just use the crash bar mounts now.

i just went through this with these. i put a set on the wife's bike, she had the 1'' floorboard extensions. i had to remove them. you can't just use longer bolts. there is a spot where you would need another extension/spacer. it's hard to explain, but hang on, i'll get you a pic....

okay, here's a pic. notice the red circled area, with my extensions, it was just a cylindrical spacer that went under the front part of the mount, but nothing where it's circled. you could either add one (it would have to be just a tad different length because you can see how the surface is 'stepped') or remove the extensions. with these floorboards, my wife doesn't notice the lack of the extensions so much.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

I appreciate the comments. I've reconsidered the extensions vs. purchasing the Ciro's vs. having crash bar mounted highway pegs...again. Took the plunge last evening and ordered the Ciros. Looking forward to trying them out.

I'll have an unopened 1 1/4" Floorboard extension kit for sale soon.

Ride safe.

I put the Ciro's on with Kuryakyn extensions. 3/4" I believe, just used extended bolts and an appropriate spacer for the other and all is good!

The Ciros are great! I added extended brake and shift levers from Soft Brake and I'm really happy with the setup.

Ya buddy! Get the extensions that you want and add that size to any bolt you have to remove in order to install the Ciros. Even though only 2 bolts hold the original boards on, there is a third you will have to remove to mount them. Also grab 2 cylindrical spacers the same size as the extensions for that other bolt you have to remove. Done and done, I love them!
