I would get a bracket or half pipe that would fit the down pipe vertically and weld the horizontal foot peg pipe to that. The vertical part could be attached to the down pipe with some u-bolts.

The engine guard mounts inside of the frame. It is made to protect the engine not to mount foot pegs on.

The crash bars are much larger, and mount outside of the frame.

Look it up. I did because I thought the engine guards with foot pegs on them look(ed) incorrect.

Here is an old pic of my 450 with both the crash bar and engine guard mounted.

I cut the lower mounts and installed a spacer to allow for my forwards.

I took a low speed inside fall and believe the crash bar attributed to breaking my foot. Not a scratch on the bike though! Engine guards will be (properly) mounted on my bikes forever, but I got a slightly bent 450 crash bar for sale-super low price!!

01-7700 How about using a single pipe attached perpendicular to the frame at the front down tube? That could also be your pegs or attach pegs to it.

chipshot Makes sense. Was hoping to avoid getting crash/engine/highway bars, but probably no way around it for using highway pegs (besides forward controls, which I'm also trying to avoid).

01-7700 I doubt you would be able to tighten down the pegs enough on that thin outer pipe.

Also the force of your legs pushing on the pegs and pipes could break the exhaust studs in the head.

chipshot That would be a reason. The pegs have a little bit of clearance between the mount and peg itself. Maybe I'll give it a try, if it's too hot then get cheap highway bars.

flitecontrol Unless the pegs can be insulated from the tubes, I would think both the pegs and feet would get very hot.
