So heres deal is with these pegs! The stainless adapter is 1 1/2" long 1/2" Thick. It is turned to with in +/- 3 tenths of of the i.d. of the peg. The adapter is cooled and the peg is heated for a shrink fit similar to installing neck cups. I feel this should make for the sturdiest/ safest brass peg on the market. And yeah it very well may be over kill... I will be doing r&d on adapters for female Harley mounts next and have it in mind to also offer some the Brit, Yamaha XS, And maybe Honda Cb. But the Female Harley ones are next.
