Three For Thursday: Retractable Passenger Pegs, Mirrors for Sport Bikes, and Chrome Tank Trim

Welcome back to Three for Thursday, where we put the spotlight on a trio of Kuryakyn products that we think deserve your attention. Almost every Thursday we present some of the best Kuryakyn has to offer, and if something pops out at you as a “must have,” feel free to give us a call. At the very least, we can answer your questions about the part or product and, of course, we can certainly get you one of your very own. Let’s get started, shall we?

Item Number One – Retractable Passenger Pegs

Name and part number? Retractable Passenger Pegs (Kuryakyn p/n 4352)

Where does it go? In place of the factory passenger peg mounts.

What makes this part so great? Now your passenger can have highway cruise pegs on a Street Glide without the need to change floorboards or buy any additional parts. These are retractable and will fold out of the way when not needed. For those who are looking to also upgrade to floorboards, these Retractable Passenger Pegs will accept the new Premium Floorboards with no additional parts needed. Best of all, the price is less than you’d pay for OEM floorboards and mounts without retractable pegs.

What is it made of? Durable cast-iron mounts, zinc arms that are chrome plated. Plastic and brass bushings are used to keep everything in operation.

Is it hard to install? Nope — just a few simple hand tools are all you need. (Installation Instructions.)

What bikes will this part fit? ’06-’10 Street Glides, ’10 Road Glide Custom, ’04-’07 Road King Custom.

What else do you make to coordinate with this part? Kuryakyn Premium Floorboards and the new Trident Line of foot pegs all work great with the retractable passenger pegs.

Item Number Two – Sport Bike Mirrors

Name and part number? Trident Mirrors for Sport Bikes (Kuryakyn p/n 1496)

Where does it go? Replaces the factory mirrors on most modern sport bikes.

What makes this part so great? Finally a good-looking mirror that is actually functional. These mirror can be adjusted up, down, forward or back for fine-tuning to meet the rider’s needs. They are also lightweight and durable — unlike many aftermarket mirrors.

What is it made of? Lightweight aluminum, chrome-plated with a convex lens.

Is it hard to install? Not at all, just basic hand tools to remove the OEM mirrors and replace with the superior Trident parts. (Installation Instructions.)

What bikes will this part fit? Most sport bikes, including the following:

  • Suzuki: GSX-R600 ’97-’09, GSX-R750 ’96-’09, GSX-R1000 ’01-’09, Hayabusa (GSX1300R) ’99-’09, TL1000 R/S All, SV650S ’99-’09, SV1000S ’03-’07.
  • Kawasaki: ZX-6/R ’00-’10, ZX-9 ’94-’03, ZX-10 ’04-’10 (Does not fit ZX-12 or ZX-14 Models).
  • Honda: CBR 600 F4/F41/RR, CBR 929 ’01-’02, CBR 954 ’02-’03, CBR1000 ’04-’07.

What else do you make to coordinate with this part? Kuryakyn Transformer or ISO grips, Mini Dagger foot pegs, and a bunch of parts from Roaring Toyz, including lowering links, swing arm extensions and billet kick stands.

Item Number Three – Tank Trim

Name and part number? Chrome Tank Trim with Knee Pads (Kuryakyn p/n 3916)

Where does it go? On each side of the Gold Wing gas tank.

What makes this part so great? They offer superior paint protection for your gas tank while adding a nice contrast of chrome and black rubber inlays to the side of the bike. The tank trim covers a large area where it’s needed most to keep the rider’s knees from scratching the paint.

What is it made of? Chrome-plated plastic with soft rubber inlays.

Is it hard to install? Just clean the surface, peel and stick. That’s all, folks! (Installation Instructions.)

What bikes will this part fit? ’01-’10 GL 1800.

What else do you make to coordinate with this part? Kuryakyn gas tank door trim, glove box accents, and the front speaker trim go a long way to complement this piece.
