    Question Mick-O-Pegs anyone? 2002 K1200LT

    They're a bit pricy but when a 100 mile trip cramps your hips, knees and leg muscles, I either sell out or buy pegs. It seems the MOP's would get me stretched out and if needs be, I can throw these stubbies across the crash bars and I'll have a 3 position seat! If anyone has experience with them on their LT it would be great to hear from you! I might add that I REALLY like my '02 LT Thanks for replies!

    Dear Old Rookie,

    I'm adding the year/model of your LT to the thread title, in the hope that someone might open the thread who has some experience with the product you're asking about. The better your question is - usually the better the answers will be. Please read the stickies about posting in the forum, especially the one about putting year/model in the thread title.

    Best regards,

    I have the J-Pegs on my LT....they look rather cumbersome when they are extended but that is not the reason I bought them. I have always been what I call a frigidity rider meaning I change positions often and they help.

    Just so you know what they look like...bought mine off Ebay for 299$, I think.

    I have a set of Mick-o-Pegs on my '99 LT and I like them. They take some getting used to because they stretch your legs downward instead of more forward like traditional highway pegs. Additionally, they are easy to deploy while riding.

    Only negative comment I have ever read about on the MOP is that they can damage the lower skirt on the bike when it tips over. They punch holes in the plastic but rarely if ever do any damage to hard parts.

    I installed Suburban Machinery peg lowering kit on my 02 and that made all the difference for me. The lowering kit will drag sooner in corners

    Thanks alot guys, there have been times I had a alot of pain getting the legs up onto the crash bars so J pegs might be a difficult after the pain has set in. The MOP interest me because I can extend my legs downward! Thus keeping the weight lower. I will look for the suburban machinery kit and if all they do is lower the peg, it may be tough to reach the shifter. However combine a set of MOPs with the peg lowering kit and I might have a winning combo. Thanks to everyone with their replies

    Yes the lowering kit does make the shifter and rear brake a little more challenging to use until you adjust them. On the shifter there is a link between the ball joints that a turn or two made all the difference for me. On the brake there is also an adjustment but I never tried adjusting it.
