For those that have heat issues on the Gen 1 bikes.   :stirpot:

The CCs have the added bonus of acting as a heat sink. They sure warm up after a nice long ride!

I guess you could use the tank 'glove' box. Seems lots of folks have cooked their cell phones in there, maybe it can do coffee?

No bacon for you tin man, not till you install your own bars!

Damn, finally a use for the 'box' and I already got rid of it. Now that you mention it it would have been the perfect mobile Geo. Foreman sandwich grill.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm glad I put the new highway pegs on the lower part of the cages now. Hope they don't heat up & cook my feet.  ;D
Why?  Do you have a gen1?  (You need to change your signature to indicate which year bike you have!)  Did it turn out they (Ronnie's pegs) are not compatible with the Gen1 canyons?  On my Gen2, I have both installed and wouldn't have it any other way.... the cages are way too far apart and wide, to me, to have pegs on them...
I thought about cutting the pegs down to clear the canyon cages but I just didn't have the heart to ruin Ronnie's work. It also looked like they would be so short as to be useless.

Thanks, I have seen the 10+ with these on.  If you have time could you post a photo.  I appreciate it.
I tried taking some pics the other night with my phone but black bars with black pegs against a black bike in a garage makes for a lousy shot. I need to get the bike outside & use a real camera. I will try to get some pics & post them on the other thread.  8)

Good luck with that! Most of us waited for a LONG time to get these bars and won't give them up that soon.

I know. I'm just trying to stretch the dollar's as usual(read; cheap ass;). I am willing to pay full price, but was just hoping to get lucky. Alas, I'm only lucky in love!

As for notching the fairings....a dremmel makes real quick work of it. Just be sure both tabs engage and mark appropriately before cutting

Could you explain this procedure a bit further? What tabs are you referring to? This is my first time with the fairings off. Is it pretty much the same on both sides?
Thanks!

On the Gen 1 bikes all you have to do is to make a notch exactly like the one pictured below (on both sides of course). Then you can install your bars with all the plastic removed and then reinstall the plastic. The notch slips over the top bar of the Canyon cage.



The tabs are inside of the front fairing and that's what holds the 'fins' of the fairing in place.

I just cut the entire vertical piece between the two fins out. The way I saw it once you cut it all possibility of support for the fins is gone. So why not clear the entire path for the cages. And of course it does make removing the plastic with the cages on real easy.
