My first choice, but they won't fit the bike with the pegs in the extended reach position.

Hepco & Becker make incredible quality stuff - German company.

Almost learned this the hard way.

BTW, I have R&G on mine and love them. Great quality, fit and finish, install easy, work well and look great. Also have the matching highways pegs.
I wouldn't say the only ones.
Mine do.
I have the RG Extension kit on aswell which puts them another 2" forward.

Hey Cpt; do your feet hit those at all when you're shifting or braking? I like the price and the look of those.

Not at all. There's a good front view on their website.

I installed the Puig crash bars this morning. The paper instructions are clear, but I really liked the Puig installation video I found online. The Puig bars seem very well made. The only thing I don't like is that when the bike is on the side stand with the handlebars fully to the left, my light bar comes in contact with the crash bar. Not by much, but probably enough to mar the finish of the crash bar over time.
