Highway Peg mounts

Hello everyone, new Harley Davidson owner, 2017 Road Glide Special, and I am trying to install pegs to my crash bars. I purchased heal raiser foot pegs and the long angled mounting kit from Harley Davidson. I have about a 30 or 31 leg inseam. Does anyone have any suggestions? I tried the short angled mounting kit as well and can't seem to get them to lay the way I want.

Welcome to the forum & congrats on the new ride. Not much experience except noticed when I went from my 13 to my 15 that the height up the engine guards makes a lot of difference. Higher up seems to shorten the reach.

Good luck & enjoy the snazzy new ride!

I had a bitch of a time getting them to the right spot for me. Mine's the Ultra with the lowers, so its a little different. Maybe you could look at one in the shop to get an approximate location for what I'm about to say.

I had to use the line across the radiators as a reference point. If you look at those grills, you can see which row of holes are blocked and which are open. I put the top of my clamp even with that line. Then I started adjusting the angle towards the floorboards. Looking at the front of the bike, they almost look like they are angled way to much, almost parallel. Looking from the seat, they appear about 45 degrees to the floorboards. Once I had that, it was a matter of adjusting the pegs around their rotation. Where I have them now, I can keep my heels on the floorboards with my toes on the pegs. If I want a little more room, I can hook my heels between the front of the floorboard and the peg. If I need still more room, the arch of my foot is on the peg. Maximum leg room is with the heels on the very top of the pegs, with everything blowing in the breeze.

I had tried on notch lower and I could really stretch my legs out, but couldn't rest my toes. For me, this is a good compromise.
