...or the lack thereof.
We've recently added a sweet, aped up, '98 Wide Glide to keep the Ultra company, and to give us a retro-ride for around town, and to sort of take a trip back to the good old days.
I was moving bikes around to sweep the garage/bar, when I leaned over from the rear of the sissy bar and looked down and saw that the passenger pegs were not symmetrical.
The left peg needs to be moved out away from the mount or frame about 2".
I did a search of this forum, and the rest of the 'net, nothing.
I've hit a search link http://www.adhuntr.com
to check this out, and looked at every good shot of a '98 WG and they're all the same, lacking symmetry.
No one has had their passenger make mention of this, or noticed any dimples in the rear of the primary cover?
The previous owners either weren't aware of it, or didn't know any better.
The bike is slammed in he a$$ end and hasn't got a lot of travel in the short shocks, so she's a rough ride on bad roads.
I noticed recently that the SO was leaning a little to the right and I asked her if she was and why, she said her butt got out of alignment after the last bump.
I told her line that thing back up.
Every time it has happened, it's the same direction, so I know it's because she's not able to have her legs equally symmetrical.
When I searched this forum and found a post; http://www.v-twinforum.com/forums/ha...nger-pegs.html
that said basically the same thing, but the answer seems to always be Kuryakyn when you Google the issue.
I stopped by the Kuryakyn tent at Ocean City Bike Week on the 16th with several pics on my phone of what I'm describing, and the rep directed me to some adapter that wouldn't work.
I have this http://www.jpcycles.com/product/5300106
Spur(?) theme all over the entire bike, grips, shifter, brake pedal, and both sets of pegs.
I don't think that I want to replace all of that, just to move that left passenger peg out 2".
Short of paying through the nose to have a piece of 2" steel stock machined to fit between the two halves of the peg mount, does anyone have a clue if someone already produces such a critter, that only requires longer bolts?
