3 Models (AA, DD, & DL) use our smooth black pegs pointing inboard (as shown).
14 Models (CC, ED, EF, EQ, E.5D, E.5F, E.5Q, GA, GD, GF, GQ, KA, KD, & KL)use our black or silver knurled pegs pointing outboard. Some of these give you the option of attaching a heavier peg.
DON'T DAMAGE THE SPRING!! (See #8)
* Most parts are not interchangeable (right & left).
* The left engine guard of GW & Valk is about 1/2 inch farther back than the right. To get the pegs even, take that into account.
1. Remove the single pivot bolt (3/16” Allen) from the center of one cover.
2. Remove the cover (with spring). (Use caution because the spring is under tension.)
3. Maintain a light coat of any grease and keep dirt out from under the cover to reduce friction.
4. Loosen the two (3/16” Allen) recessed mounting bolts to remove the clamp. Model CC also has two 7/16" (11 mm) hex head bolts. Slip the clamp behind the engine guard. (Engine guards of some 88-97 GWs are too close to the engine and may need to be pried away. Pry aganst the bottom edge of the valve cover if needed.)
5. When mounting the block, only finger tighten the mounting bolts so the block may be moved. If the block STICKS to the engine guard, use the leg, held in place with the center bolt, to pry the block off the guard instead of trying to knock it off. Place the leg against the lip of the block near the roll pins so you don't bend the bolt.
6. With the peg attached to the leg, without the cover, mount the leg (and peg) to the block. Don't tighten the pivot bolt - it will mar your engine guard. Move the block to your preferred position: consider comfort in the down position and room around your boot; in the up position, does it clear the engine guard or do you need to place a sticky-backed rubber on the engine or guard where the peg makes contact; do they interfere with your boot in the up position? Do you want them mounted level or rotated a bit? All K_ models will need to be mounted @ 25-45 degrees. The machined angles of the right & left blocks are the same and the legs are the same length [except for Model CC]. Remember that the engine guards are not even. To get the pegs even, you can measure from the pivot bolt...except Model CC.
7. Remove the pivot bolt and leg. Tighten the two mounting bolts (Model CC has 4). Some engine guards are out of round so the Mick-O-Peg block may fit very tightly. At first, you may have a gap, but you should be able to gradually tighten the clamp. If the block sticks to the engine guard, see the note at the end of #5.
8. PRELOAD THE SPRING. With the spring in the cover, place the exposed end of the spring into a small hole of the leg. Models have one, two or three small holes. Place the spring in the hole that gives the least "pre-load" or lift needed to lift the 'peg' you are going to use. Put the pivot bolt through the cover and leg. Mount the cover and leg to the block. Only finger tighten the pivot bolt, then back it off 1/4 - 1/2 turn. Keep the leg against the cover so the spring stays in the hole. Rotate the cover to pre-load the spring, just enough to lift the leg plus a little to be square with the block. Don't force it, turning the cover another half turn will probably damage the expensive Stainless Steel Spring. The two roll pins in the block should fit into the holes of the cover to hold it square. If you over tighten the cover bolt, you may experience binding.
9. You're halfway to comfort! Repeat procedures 1-8 on the other Mick-O-Peg assembly.
WARNINGS. As with most motorcycle accessories, misuse can be dangerous.
1. Mick-O-Pegs are not intended for use while following another vehicle closely or while leaning in curves.
2. Since the spring lifts the peg up, an aggressive tread on the riders boot may catch on the peg and increase reaction time. Test your Mick-O-Pegs many times before using them on the road. Before you ride, find the quickest method of returning your feet to your controls and get in the habit of using that method.
3. Mick-O-Pegs are habit forming. You may no longer be satisfied with any other highway peg/board position.
4. It is possible to get your pant leg caught on the Mick-O-Peg when in the up position. To reduce that likelihood, a) consider mounting the Mick-O-Peg farther forward; b) wear a high top boot and/or tighter cuff.
5. If your bike falls on its side, it may be good to have the Mick-O-Peg block mounted just snuggly so that it will twist up, absorbing some of the initial impact and thereby reducing the likelihood of damage to the engine guard.
