Be safe
Put a Corbin on mine, love their seats, had one on my old bike too.. Been thinking of highway pegs too, found some that will fold into and around the tubes. But I need to figure out where I can mount them on my engine guards.. They are built for a beemer so not really a “direct” fit but i’m working on it...
What brand of highway pegs are these???

What do you think about the size of those lights for mounting there? I have a set of them in my garage from another bike that I had thought about using. But I am concerned that in a drop they will get driven right into the plastics. I would like to get them mounted more to the inside of the bars, but I think I may need to see if I can get someone to manufacture a mount for them, in order to place them where I want.

Are they in enough to where if the bike goes down they wont destroy the fairing? I played around a little with the set I have, but havent been happy/comfortable with the mounting position yet.

I will have another look at them or maybe buy something smaller.

Yea, I think they are, if I was really concerned I could easily invert the top (higher) lights and bolt them to the bottom side of the mount. Then both the lights would be in front of the faring and not next to any plastic. I did have it like that when I was first putting them on, but I just liked the look from the front with them further apart like they are now. I posted a new pic, just imagine that top one upside down

I am probably just being over cautious about it based on a past experience. I will pull them back out and have another look at it.

Thanks!

What light switch are you using? I can't seem to find one on Amazon that doesn't have complaints about water getting into the switch. Thanks
