You need the adapters. I forget the part # but you can find it on the site. I used them on my speedmaster, but i gotta tell you i felt the quality was garbage. the rubber turned hard and glazed looking and cracked and the chrome looked lik chrome paint. Plus the metal underneath the chrome wasn't smooth so a ton of machining marks showed thru it. Some seem to think they are good, and i have no idea why such a wide range of opinions in quality. But you might want to check some out first b4 buying. You can usually find a lot of kuryakyn stuff at harley dealers if u wanna check it out first.

I installed Kuriyakan pegs on my Thunderbird. I have the Triumph front engine bars and installed the fully adjustable Kuriyakan pegs - I think they were called "Longhorn" but I'm not sure. I like them a lot. I tinkered a little till I found the right position. You have to be a little careful, because if you position them in just the wrong place, they can block your right toe when you apply the rear brake - at least with my size 12 boots. A small adjustment took care of that. They look great and work great. My only complaint is that I like to keep them folded up when not using them, but the vibration of the road causes them to "deploy" on their own. It's not a big deal. I still really like the pegs.

I'll see what I can do. I have no idea how to post pictures on here, but I'll try to educate myself.
