2001--2017 GL1800 .

Found the info from a rider on the ADV Forum under the heading" Adventure Bikes not made by BMW or KTM"
Then under the heading "Japanese polycylindered adventure bikes."

I wonder if something like these for the ST1300 would work?

Maybe, they look slightly different in the shape at the top where the clevis pin goes through the hole .

If I had a pair or at lest access to a pair I would certainly try them.

Please let us know if you do and how they work.

I found another listing for the same foot peg and they do list it for the GL1800.  I have the modified BMW foot pegs on now but they are higher up than the stock ones and required quite a bit of shifter and brake adjustment.  They are only $50 so I might try them.

Take a look at the stock front pegs that come on the Honda 500 Rebel-if I didn't buy the toppers I have now I would have bought the Rebel pegs-you wouldn't think they would come on a cruiser
It's not a big motorcycle just a groovy little motorbike

So I ordered and fitted the pegs yesterday and they work well.  You can index them to the position you want but I suggest some epoxy to make sure they don't rotate.  I like them because they give plenty of room between the peg and levers.  They are also 1" lower than the BMW ones I had mounted before.  I did have to grind a little for a good fit.

They look like they were made for the bike.

I have mine assembled , just too hot in the garage right now to do any fiddling .

No I don't think so.
 I ordered mine through my local Honda dealer , item by item from the parts fische
Looked at all the packages as I opened them , everything marked as made in Japan. Kind of surprised me.

I noticed his have an adjustment fastener at the very end of the foot peg. Mine do not have that.

I have the Goldwing foot pegs mounted and have been on a few rides .

They are way more comfortable than the stock pegs.
I did not feel it required and rear brake pedal adjustments.

On the shift side it's a bit of a problem.
 As others have stated the shift lever is a crap shoot getting it adjusted to the right height.
I wear a size 9.5 USA, or 43 in Europe and getting the shift lever set is presenting a problem.
The problem stems from some limitation of ankle movement all residual from a stroke.

I am close to ok , but still miss some up shifts . Meaning a false neutral at a very bad time.
If I cannot get this resolved the machine will be up for sale.
I do not want an accident causing me to  spend more sheet time.  :110:
