Ryan, I've read the posts re adding highway pegs to the Canyon Cage bar but is it possible to use the cage itself as a highway peg, even if just resting one's outstretched foot on top of what appears to be a horizontal bar?
Blue I tried doing that this weekend and no luck. I could not get my foot to rest on top of the cage.

Does anyone know if these bars are compatible with Ronnie's Highway Pegs?  In other words, would the bars conflict (in space) for Ronnie's Pegs? I can't quite tell from the pictures.

Thanks.  I searched but couldn't find it that thread.  I appreciate the direction.

I just spoke with Ryan.  Order both the front and rear #39 (he thinks).  He said that they have a line of callers waiting and ones he needs to call back.  Clearly, they found the need that we riders have said that has been there for quite some time.

It looks like they might have to bump up the initial run to more than 50.

Probably too much to ask for a larger discount if they hit 50, but maybe throw in a little somethingsomething for the response - Kawasaki Only Parking sign  ;D

Hey guys! We're cookin' today and approaching 50 sets sold! I feel I should clarify the exchange deal as I don't think I explained it very well at the beginning. We're offering to exchange the bathroom bars for the Canyon Cages but only to people who bought their bathroom bars during the group buy we did a few weeks ago. We can't have people exchanging a bar that's a year or more old. The people who participated in the first group buy paid $297.50 and would be receiving that much as credit towards the Canyon Cages. When the customer returns their product we'll determine whether or not additional charges need to be applied for stripping and refinishing (typically ~$30). If the product is in flawless condition and doesn't need to be stripped and redone you'll receive a credit of $297.50 towards your purchase of the Canyon Cages ($225) which means you'll be credited $72.50 for a straight swap with no damage. This may still be a bit confusing but if you think you're eligible for an exchange message, email, or call me and we'll handle the exchanges case by case.

The second run will be after the gen 1 development, right? ;)

No need to worry about that! Although we usually take a few lead men away from their normal duty to help develop new product, normal production usually doesn't slow down much. Our development of the earlier generation Canyon Cages won't impede the production of the Canyon Cages for the 2010-2012, don't worry!

But I doubt that the development of the 08/09 is much dependent on the production run.

 :D

Ryan, I've read the posts re adding highway pegs to the Canyon Cage bar but is it possible to use the cage itself as a highway peg, even if just resting one's outstretched foot on top of what appears to be a horizontal bar?

Thanks for testing this, Zulu! But, yea, I don't think this would be very comfortable. It's a bit hard to tell from the photos but the Canyon Cage bends in towards the bike as it hugs the fairings so it's a bit of a weird position having to wrap your legs around the bike. If you're looking to put your feet up, I think highway pegs are your best option.

It looks like they might have to bump up the initial run to more than 50.

We're debating between adding a few more or just starting a second production run sooner than we we're originally planning. This would drastically minimize the amount of time one would have to wait for the second set. Decisions, decisions...I'll let you guys know what we decide to do as soon as we figure it out!

Ryan,

You are a busy man for sure. And I'm sure your Boss is a very happy guy with the potential of a hundred sets of bars as fast as you can make them. There are quite a few here that want highway pegs. I have searched trying to find some that fit the Canyon Cage bars and with style that fits the bike and folds out of the way. I was looking thru your site and see that you offer many pegs but few fit these bars. Is it possible for your design guy to design a bracket that fits these 1" bars and use your in house pegs? Keep the bracket as simple as possible for production and style. I know this seems like a small market but I'd bet other bike brand cage customers would probably buy as well. The closest ones I found are the ones I mentioned earlier(below) and could be used as a starting point to design. They can be mounted horizontally or vertically so give alot of flexibility in mounting. Even some of the nay sayers might eventually try a set for the long ride home if the didn't stand out like a sore thumb. Thanks.

JP

We actually mocked up a set of highway pegs specifically for this new Canyon Cage and posted some photos in the build thread but that thing is so long now it's nearly impossible to find specific information. Below are some photos of the highway pegs we threw together for the Canyon Cage. If these don't appeal to you, you can also get a similar set of pegs/clamps that come in black which a lot of people seem to be looking for. The black pegs/clamps are from a company called RivCo (www.rivcoproducts.com).
