Question Passenger Peg solutions 2003 XLH

Okay, so I just got my first Harley a few weeks ago via sweet trade. I am trying to customize it and finding that, so far, 95% of what I buy for an "84-03 Sportster" doesn't exactly fit without some work. My most recent problem are the set of passenger pegs made by Harley Davidson. I get the mount on there fine with the 45 degree angle and all, but the right side mount is about 1/8" away from the pipe and rotating the passenger peg up and down will destroy the pipe. I'm a little bit more confused about this just because it's an actual Harley part that I'm trying to put on here. Are there any solutions for this? I am looking at possibly buying a Kuryakyn offset mount, but I can't find specifically if the bolt will fit in the passenger mounts. The ad says it will fit any 1/2" -13. Is this the size of the passenger mounting hole for a 2003 sportster XLH? Thanks in advance.

I've got the H-D brand O ring style on mine. Bolt on, No issues. I do have a 2-1 pipe, but even when I had the stock pipes I don't recall an issue.

What pipes are do you have?

I have the stock pipes. I can get it bolted on and even install the pegs, but rotating it comes in contact with the pipes. It wont let me post a URL because I haven't made enough posts yet, but the HD part number is 49105-83. I believe they're the same as your O-Rings, just rubber (which doesn't really make a difference for the problem I'm having).

The bike is still at stock height (no aftermarket shocks).

Can you adjust the pipes downward enough to so the peg clears it.

your shocks may be worn out.. That's one idea.

another is that the exhaust is angled up a little too much in the rear.

Something doesn't sound right. I have mine rotated at a 45° angle and no problems.

You can gain some clearance by loosening the headers and shifting them just a bit. Also, the taller the shocks, the less clearance you will have.
