My foot on the stock peg, or even the rallye peg, feels like an overcooked noodle drapped across the narrow edge of a fork.

I would recommend the Fastways to anyone that was long of foot, nonexistant of arch and long of leg, or wanting to stand deeper in the bike.
You make some good points Creeper. I have the Rally Pegs now, but I have a size 12 that could certainly benefit from a little wider pegs along with the 1/2" lower. If I can't figure out a way to modify the Rally Pegs, that looks like the best way to go.

BTW: Creeper - good point on the Fastways. I am a 10/5 EEE so the width is more of a help to me. The side bracket mod that Mack was onto from the SXC (aluminum bracket) changed that bastard LC4 peg over to the RFS style peg, didn't it? That made the Fastways a bolt up, didn't it?

Where's MP's index, gotta go see if that's in there.
Akchoolee, the first person I recall doing a Fastway install on an Adventure was Velocibiker. I'm sure someone, maybe Mack, did it before him... but Velo documented it.

As I recall, Velo said that it was a time consuming, and not worth the effort or expense... but as I said, I had about 1/2 hour in the whole thing.
Of course, I have a few thousand bucks worth of porting tools in the shop, so removing a little aluminum is not too big a deal.

The '04 SXC mount does have to be clearanced for the Fastway peg casting around the backside of the bushing... otherwise, you can't get the mounting pin in.
You also need a second, longer than the stock left, right side mounting pin... not for the peg, but for the SXC mount, which is wider across the clevis.

The way I see it, to mount any peg other than the KTM rallye pieces, you'd need the SXC mount... so it's more a matter of the additional peg cost than the mount cost.
And as a good set of non-titanium aftermarket pegs run from $80 to $140 bucks, the Fastways, especially the F4 version @ $100 retail, is not so bad.

Pegs are such a personal thing... much like handlebar bends, grips and such, that I, and I'm sure you as well, would recommend to anyone to, when possible, try before you buy.

oh yeah, on topic, yer welcome myblueBayuMvAy but don't forget creeper's wizdom layed out here - it will help you overcome the fact that Fastaways are a custom part for the LC4.

Riding position

So just how important is it to raise the bars to a comfortable? I just put a Rox 1.75" riser on top of a 1" fixed riser for 2.75" overall. I feel a little strange sitting but incredibly comfortable when standing. This is on my XRR and I am nearly 6'0 with long legs and arms. I have yet to do much open dirt on it but I am really stoked.

I am wondering what I am giving up? Joe

the earlier 03 version was heaver casting the newer 04 version is aluminum..

also dont forget about looking/testing for brake, throttle or clutch line problems with bar risers..

You have to grind or mill a radius into the mount for clearance for the peg. You also need another right side peg pin, as the stock left side pin becomes too short for the new mount.
Thats about it. A little grind, stare and compare, grind a bit more... about 1/2 hour for all of it.

Plus One!! This is the exact same way I mounted my Fastway Pegs. One of the best mod's that I have made! It makes a world of difference to get a peg that you can actually stand on!! The bracket from the 625 cost me 54 dollars.

Take Care Brothers, Eric.

Question....

for anyone else who has done this...

Got them mounted with the grinding discussed above. Did any of you guys (with the later Al bracket) do enough grinding to allow the peg to pivot or just clearnce. It looked to me that for the peg to pivot way too much meat would have to be moved......
