  • Kuryakyn Cruise Mark III's or IV's

    Wanting to avoid a highway bar, or engine guard. Mustache bars sit too high for my comfort. I've been looking at some sort of floorboard mount highway peg for a while and came across the Mark III's. Could probably make it work.

    Then I saw the Mark IV.

    looks like a mustache bar, but mounts lower and wraps up and around the floorboard. perfect position to have heels on the boards and toes on the pegs - pretty much my riding style right now, but no peg to put my toes on. The Mark IV looks like it would mount in the same place the bottom of the crash bars mount, with the correct angle. But the middle piece could be a problem:

    Do you guys know if the roadie frames are wider/narrower at the bottom of the down tubes? Have any of you installed either of these on your machine?

    Update:

    Ordered the Mark IV's on Dec 11th, and thanks to the magic of the USPS (please keep this apolitical) they arrived on my doorstep yesterday afternoon (along with the new brake pad!! car pedal is gone!!!)

    I know what it's supposed to look like installed, but having to modify a couple of things to get the fitment right. I've gotten it mocked up where I want it positioned and it is exactly what I was looking for:

    On a side note - if anyone knows where I can locate these it would be greatly appreciated. I'm not real sure what to call them specifically, but it's most like a female - male thread adapter. McMaster has a crap ton of them, but I need 1/2 - 20 female to 1/2 - 20 male and they don't offer it. they go 13 thread to 20 or 20 to 28, but no 20 to 20. No one sells a 1/2" bolt extender or 1/2" standoff bolt that I can find. I "think" I can make a connector bolt and a piece of all thread work, but it's going to be questionable on length until I get them fitted and I would rather have it as one piece anyway.

    If anyone is interested in this mod let me know and I'll give you all the info you want. It's pretty straight forward.

      Are they going to touch the ground before the floorboards?

        Don't think so. I've got almost 2" rise from the board indicators to the lowest point of the arm, which is an inch and a half or so inside from the outside of the board.

        Wife stood up the bike so I could get this shot. I knew there was "some" up angle to the boards, but didn't realize it was this drastic. I shouldn't have any issues with the bars hitting before the boards:

            I don't think your floorboards are mounted in the stock position. Looks like someone put a "lift kit" on them.

              no sir, those shiny hex heads go straight back into the frame mounts. I probably could have used the original button caps, they are lengthy for what they are connecting, but I added 3/8" width and figured it was engineered like that for some reason so I moved up to 10x1.25x40 bolts. You can order 1000 of them off of Alibaba for pennies each, but I'll be damned if I can even find 4 in a city of 150,000 people! Even the specialty houses said they were special order. So Lowe's has hex heads and that's what I got.

              The angle of the dangle surprised me too, but I guess the riding position as a whole is leaned back, so in relation to that the boards feel level?

                Final update:

                I had to rework my mounts. The flat bar and the shiny chrome mounting surface would not bolt together tight enough to keep the bar from tilting down, so I fabbed up some mounts out of 2x2x0.375 angle iron:

                here it is mounted on the bike with the bar mount:

                and final mount. These mounts are 2 1/2" wider inside to inside than stock HD frame mounts, so I had to fab spacers out of threaded rod and 2" connector bolts to fit in between the adjuster nuts on the support bar. I will probably look into chroming them, but it's not real noticeable at a glance:

                Looking forward to the test ride, but I'm in the middle of other winter projects at the moment. Just sitting on the bike when I swing a leg up just for comfort, my feet go straight to these positions (not at the same time, but, you know..) Just what I was looking for!!
