    Can anyone tell me if peg rails from a classic or std will fit on my Roadster? I need to do something or I will have to sell and buy another bike , getting bad cramps in my hips now.

    Thanks Dave

    Yes, I can tell ya.
    Yes they do.
    I have the chrome rails and boards from a Standard on my 2012 R3R.
    Note that the Standard rails provide more lean angle than both the Classic or the Roadster.

    I have replaced my rails and pegs from a 2104 R3R ABS with a set from a 2006 standard. It requires all hardware on both rails including rear master cylinder and you will need to manufacture a brake line from master cylinder to brake switch union and a bracket to hold same. All the information is in these pages. PM if you need any more info,

    Did this make for a better ride position?

    I used to suffer from hip pain (I am 6'"1"") it is no longer a problem. Fitting handle bar risers also helped.

    I'm 6'5" and had the same issues until I got a Corbin seat. It moves you down and forward a bit, but it is a great riding position.
    Last I saw, one of your countrymen @Ishrub had a few Corbin seats posted on the classified section.

    For me it improved my lean angle in the twisties and the 5" more fwd made my right hip happier.

    On the subject of pegs, does anyone know if highway boards are available for passengers? The wife is getting jealous of my freedom, I've looked but cant find any.
