Kuryakyn highway pegs
I am bringing over a set of Kuryakyn highway pegs from my Stratoliner.
I really like them, eventually I want a set of Harley ones, but these suit me for now.
Now here is the thing. They just absolutely drip rust. Not from the chrome parts, but from the dang fasteners that are black oxide, or worse yet, zinc plated. I am going to replace all the fasteners with stainless ones. The only thing that I can't replace is the bent "washer" so I am going to try slipping in stainless washers until I get the right thickness.
It seems to me that Kuryakyn cuts corners sometimes. The main part of the merchandise is all really good, but fasteners and such are usually the cheapest think they can find.
Anybody else have any other ideas?
