    I have a 2008 Road King Classic and am going to put the Kuryakyn Longhorn dually pegs on her. Any suggestions or tips on the install? Seems pretty simple, but I don't want to scratch the engine guards and from what I read on other posts it may take a few times to get them in the right position.
    Thanks

    I put a piece of rubber inside the clamp on mine. This will keep it from scratching and messing up the chrome on the crash bars.

    Everyone has their own preference but I mounted my HD 360 adjustable pegs low enough on the engine guard that I now have 3 options for foot/leg position:

    1) Feet flat on the floorboards
    2) Heels on floorboards and toes on pegs - feels like a set of forward controls
    3) Feet totally up on pegs - really feels great if you also have a backrest!

    Thanks guys, good ideas. Someone also said teflon tape would work well.

    Used no tape on mine (but they were MoCo brand). Moved them several times.
    No Scratching or marring...

    My biggest problem was lining them up, so they looked the same from both sides and the front. After a while, I put them where MY FEET and LEGS wanted them, for comfort. I don't care what they look like, but I LOVE riding with them where they are now!

    I don't have the 360 adjustables, but mine are installed so I've got the 3 options as well. Find I tend to utilize position #2 more than the others. Makes for a really comfortable riding position.
