Cobra Engine Guard and Kury Highway Pegs

I have been searching the forum for the past 30 minutes and can't find what I'm looking for. Are there any recommended "starting points" to installing Highway Pegs on Engine Guards? Something like 2ft off the ground and then take a few rides and adjust accordingly. I know everyone is dfferent in height and riding style. But getting a base starting point where the Pegs won't drag would be nice...

Thoughts???

I would think the guards would drag before the pegs! lol It is a matter of preference really some like em high, some low...some close, some stretched out. I personally like to stretch out a bit when I ride and have them in a manner that I can relax my leg muscles and not feel like my feet will fall off the pegs. I used to have Kury offset dually pegs on my ace, and the adjustability was really nice!!

Gents,
I did purchase the offset ones so I feel really good about my adjustments. Just did not want to scratch/mark up the Cobra's with the clamp by placing the Pegs too low or high that the offsets could not give me a good fit. Or that I placed them too low and that they would hit before the Cobra's. I guess I'm over thinking this one...

Thanks for the quick notes. Ride safe...

I wouldn't worry about scratching the engine guard. I've had a peg clamp get spun almost 180 degrees and it didn't scratch it.

Birdie,
Happy to hear the clamp won't do too much (if any...) damage to the Guards....
