Anybody know if the Uly pegs will fit a steamer, or do they only work for the girlies?


Edit: Dammit, found the answer in another thread. Sadly, the answer is no.

If you unbolt the rubber covers on the steamer pegs ..........guess what ? they are steel serratted dirt bike pegs underneath and when you lose the rubbers you gain almost a 1/2 inch of leg room .

I'm definitely going to try that. Really that's my only complaint with this bike, I always feel like a little birdie perched up in a nest. That and my knee starts to ache after about a 100 miles or so from being crunched up all the way.

Hey... there's a new Uly peg out there for you Tiger guys
http://www.preeng.com/xcart/product....7&cat=8&page=1

I'm assuming you'd still have to file it a little but they look promising!

Uly Pegs

If anyone has replaced their Uly pegs and is willing to part with them for a reasonable price including shipping to Atlanta, send me a note off line at vic5491@yahoo.com. I ride a Honda VFR800 and have heard that the Uly Pegs will fit with minor filing and lowers the pegs 1".

Also, can anyone tell me if the Uly pegs and the XB9-12 pegs are the same? If so you can order the pair, bagged together (Part #N0006.1AD) from http://www.factory-parts.com/buell.php for $29.75. I think they are likely the same but am not sure.

Thanks,
Vic

Vic- They are definitely not the same part. XB9-12S pegs are one part, XB9-12R pegs are another (~1" higher), and XB12X pegs are yet another. The 09 Uly pegs are different from the 06-08 ones (black instead of silver and they have a slightly grippier surface although they look the same). Look through the model pics at www.buell.com and you can see the differences.

I have the Precision engineering pegs on my Uly. I love them. Very grippy, in fact almost too grippy for the first few days. You have to get used to lifting your foot off the peg rather than sliding it off like the stock pegs allow you to do. Ill rate them 9.8 out of 10

+ 10 on the Precision Engineering pegs ! They do what a peg is supposed to...provide a slip free, safe, comfortable foot platform, regardless of muddy road conditions.

2010 update... my local HD dealer wanted $95 or so for the newer Ulysses pegs, and didn't find any other options when he "searched" for me other than $45 a piece for the part numbers mentioned above (N0502.1AK and N0503.1AK).

I poked around online and found an online HD dealer where I ordered then up for $16.69 each, plus $7 s&h for a grand total of $40.38. Check out Gary Surdyke Motorcycles Inc (MEGA) at surdyke.com. The parts were not super quick to arrive (shipped in ground from HD to surdyke, then to me), but the price was right.

Hopefully your local HD foks are more helpful than mine, but if not, surdyke.com is cheap and easy!

exhaust sheild

is it just me or does anyone else find the exhaust/brake Mastercyclinder gaurd restrict how far back your big foot can go? I like to hug the frame with my legs and find my right foot is being pushed out and forward... I have been thinking about cutting it and putting a small heat sheild on the exhaust....

Anyone else done the same?

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO - what a ride!"

I have thought exactly the same thing for years. I haven't done it yet because I haven't figured out how to make a replacement.
