Foot Pegs
« on: June 27, 2016, 06:32:58 pm »
I got in my first ride on my new 2016 Saturday and so far only one complaint. The foot pegs are too short. I haven't done any searching yet but I imagine there are extenders available as well as completely new pegs. What's worth looking at?

I went with the Rade Garage pegs. I chose them mostly because of the lowered characteristic. They are certainly larger than the stock pegs but I actually think they could be a little larger. Who knows, I may think they were kind of out-riggerish then and find them too big. Wacky, I know. If I could rewind time I would not go with the orange pair, it does not match the KTM orange. Anyhow, happy with the purchase.

Lots of options with Fastway pegs. Currently have Pivotpegs but lean to the Fastway as the pivoting feature is a little odd and wasted on me, an old school old fart.

I too have pivot pegs but I had a 15+ year gap in my motorcycle riding and during that time I rode a downhill mountain bike. The pivot pegs give you a little of that pedal rotation that works for me when moving around on the bike.

However, I'm thinking about wider set of pegs as giving up the pivot might be worth the extra leverage.

Here's a link to just the pegs Ktmtwins offers. Shop around though, prices are varying even more than normal with the Brexit.

I'm thinking about the Warp 9 Adventure Pegs that you can order directly from them and pick your color.

I added the CJ Designs Peg extensions to my Pivot Pegs.  They work well and come in to sizes.  If you go this route and mount the extensions yourself, use a drill press with a vise to drill the mounting holes.  The Pivot Pegs are made of a really hard stainless steel.  CJ's will install them for you for $50. I installed mine w/o a drill press and it was almost a nightmare.

I went with the KTM Rally Replica pegs. Much better!

I installed the CJ Designs footpeg extenders.  It takes a bit of time to get it done.  My procedure may be different than yours.  Removing the stock pegs is simple.  When I tried to mark the exact spot to drill I found that the marks were not visible.  So I spray painted a bit in the areas for the front/rear holes.  When dry I marked them without issue laying them flat down so the cleats of peg were level with cleats of extenders.  Drilling was a multi step process.  A pilot then final hole for the holes.  A bit of back and forth to make sure all was lined up carefully.  For the reinstall on the bike you will find that the spring is stout enough to balance a garage door.  I required a long nose vice grip pliers to squeeze the ends of the spring to partially insert into position then with a screw driver from the bottom into the spring and the pin positioned at the top the spring could be let go.  It still takes a bit of messing with but it was the only way I could do it.  I will try the pegs today.
