So... Kuryakyn did a great job with the finish, they are heavy and seem to be quite sturdy. I was torn between getting these vs. the full-blown "crash" bars from Kuryakyn with the flip-out pegs (which are basically double the price). I couldn't be happier with them in terms of comfort and reliability and adjustability, and ease of install. HOWEVER, I do have to knock this product down 1 star because of the one (significant) minus. It hugs your bike so closely. No worries on the left side of the bike, but because of how far out the air intake sticks on the right side of the bike, it results in you having to bend your right leg to keep it on the peg (which is ok at first but is REALLY uncomortable after about 30 minutes). I bought the 1" peg extension- which ended up not being enough, so i had to buy the 2.5" extension as well. Again, the end result here is fantastic, but if you want a comfortable ride, you'll need to spend another $40 or so for the extensions. By the time you spend another $40 for pegs too, you're really not saving much money vs. the crash bars. Still, I LOVE mine and probably wouldn't trade them.
