So once again I found myself in need of a CJRacer product. And once again I was impressed by Craig's knowledge and willingness to help. Even if it meant I was not going to buy something from him (which I did).

Within a couples days a pair of long peg extentions were in my hands ready to install. Armed with the very complete and detailed instructions (maybe too detailed?), I was ready to go.

Sorry no photos of the parts in the box, so you will have to trust me... they were very nicely packed. The quality and beauty of the parts far exceeded any and all of my expectations and I have purchased other things from Craig. These things are almost too beautiful to put on my bike, I will almost feel bad when I smash them on a rock... almost. As I mentioned before, the instructions are complete. If there is any flaw, it is that they may be too detailed. By reading them I had expected a lenthy install but as I started in it went very quickly and smoothly. The detail and sequence of steps were thoughtful and made this install as foolproof as possible.

As I went through the install process I was continually impressed with the amount of thought that went into the design and construction. I mean... its a footpeg after all... who'd a thunk.

I had previously switched to the FastWay pegs so I have a few photos comparing the fastways to the CJRacer (and the stock pegs).

Ok... so, what does this mean? Well, I did like that the Fastways were a bit lower but they felt a tad too far back for me (size 46 boot). I was a little concerned that the CJRacer pegs would feel too close to the shifter/brake. I rode today with my Discovery boots and the pegs felt great. Not just good... great, not too close at all. I will ride this weekend with the SIDI Crossfires and report back.

So now the really good stuff... these pegs are long. Really long. They really transform the bike, and that is just on a quick around town loop. I can't wait to get it out on the trail. The amount of leverage these pegs give a riders is amazing.

So, if you want some beautiful bling for your bike... get the CJRacer peg extenders. If you want a wider peg... get the CJRacer. If you want a longer peg for more leverage and control... get the CJRacer.
