Hi - does anyone have a recommendation for a highway bar for the Breakout? Perhaps the bike is just not meant to have them. From what I've been reading the pegs often drag on the ground and perhaps the highway bars would as well. I like the Whiskers highway bar on the HD site but it does not fit the Breakout. The only bars I've found are on J & P. Any recommendations would be great.

Thanks - I'm referring to an engine guard - my buddy has them on his Harley in case he drops the bike - they protect the engine and you from crushing your leg.

I have them on my Lo but just didn't think they would flow for me on the Breakout. I'm not saying don't get them tho, maybe the availability is due to the forward controls? Not sure. But to address the pegs dragging, constantly doing that.

I have a set on my CVO, I have also seen the mustache engine guard. I like the looks of both personally. I didn't think it would look too good but I have seen them save a leg or 2 so I considered it a priority. There are pictures in my "garage".

I put on the Lindby Multibar - works friggin great! Put my feet up for long rides, or rest my heel toe on them when I still want quick access to the rear brake. Look great, easy to put on however you do need the $12.50 horn placement clamp as the stock one won't fit with the bars.

From HD, they make a "Chrome Front Engine Guard Kit-49200-07A" that says it fits the Breakout. List price is $214.95, available online for $178.00.

HD Engine Guard on Breakout

Thanks - I went ahead and threw this on before I ever took the bike out. I did not need an adapter for the horn.

It doesn't look bad.... hmm.... I thought it would take away from the look of the Breakout.... it doesn't.... really.

I've been debating on adding foot pegs to the crash bars but I'm not sure how that will look. The bars blend in pretty well...

Mustache bar is a sexy solution. Not as obnoxious as crash bar and still protects your sh!t.

My legs aren't long enough to even bother with highway pegs. Much rather drag pegs though because they give.

Link wont pull up for me Chief, is it the Lindy mustache?

Basically it's a straight bar instead of a C shaped crash bar. It's shaped like a mustache and has pegs at the end. If you google Harley Davison mustache bar you'll see a ton of them.

His are set up in the crash position, although still too high to save his boards. You can also hang them upside down if you like your legs high. Of course, that will also provide you no protection, but will provide comfort that even your stubby legs will appreciate.

Cool, actually haven't looked in to those much. I probably would have went with those over my full crash bar. The full bar also sits a little close to the controls. I had to adjust my foot on the shifter a bit.
