I have them on my C-14 and like them but they are not quite 'plug n' play'. You will have to drill the hole in the Buell pegs out a bit to fit the larger pins on the C-14.  Then you will have to adjust both foot levers, the shift lever by moving it a spline or two on the input shaft and the brake as low as you can get it. The brake lever ended up a bit too high for my liking but as I really liked the pegs, I learned to live with the brake lever where it is.

BTW- if you are tempted to bend either lever to make an 'adjustment', that will not work without a lot of heat and perhaps not even then, both levers are cast aluminum and just not malleable.

I did a little write- up about different pegs on the C-14 (stock, Buell and Murph's) on this forum but I think that was well before the great reset of 2011 and so that data is gone. Plus the photos were on Photobucket..... back when it was free.

You might also want to take a look at Murph's aftermarket pegs- they are about 1 1/2" lower than stock and are ready to go out of the package.

Thanks Brian
I ordered the Buell pegs
Before you posted this ...Do you think it’s
Easier just to return ship them and buy Murphs
And eat the $18 return shipping on the Buells

I tried the Buell pegs at first. I do not recall having any difficulty installing them, but was not satisfied with how much they were lower. I changed to Motorcycle Larry's lowering brackets which I was happy with. Recently onof the MCL brackets was cracked in a drop. I now have the Murphs pegs and am happy with them. I prefer the MCLs but they are no longer available.

Both are nice, well made pegs. I liked the shape of the Buells more like sport pegs. The Murphs are larger and flatter. But comfort rules. As Brian said the Murphs are about 1.5 inch lower. As I recall the Buells only about .75 inch lower.

Personal choice- it is sort of like asking which flavor ice cream is best- I can give you an answer but it just does not apply  ;)

I found a thread from way back, located here: http://www.zggtr.org/index.php?topic=589.msg21855#msg21855    Unfortunately, I have been 'Photobucketed' since that time and they are now holding the photos hostage unless I pay the ransom (they are now fee- based and I have to pay for my photos to appear).

As I said, Murph's pegs are ready to use, Buell's must be modified first. There are also peg lowering brackets that move the stock pegs down but they also move them outward which I did not care for, plus they really reduce cornering clearance.

Thanks again
The ice cream analogy is funny...I thought in terms of
Comfort there would a clear tangible difference...
Really appreciate your input
Happy 4th
