Chinese eBay Foot Pegs

I tried searching but wasn't able to find any info although I've read it discussed some where.

Anyway I'm in the market for foot pegs and was thinking of going with the latest DR650 type.

Checked eBay and found these pegs for a very good price. No springs or pins but I can get those from the dealer and still be $$ ahead.

Just wondering if anyone has purchased these at all and what the satisfaction level was. Any problem with fit etc.

Those sure look like the ones I got. Not off ebay, but they were like 20 bucks. I never put springs in and haven't missed em.

Yea those look like the ones I got off Ebay a couple of years ago. I paid a bit less than $20.

I tried to find springs for them but didn't have any luck so I've used them without and they've been fine. I did replace the OEM pin and circlip with a good grade bolt and nylock nut.

I got these 3 weeks ago. d2moto.com/p-4768-honda-xr-50-70-80-100-kawasaki-klr-650-foot-pegs.aspx

Despite what it says they installed on my 09 perfectly and I am very satisfied with them especially considering the price. I have not put springs on them and have been off the pavement with them twice and did not feel like I needed them at any point

I wouldn't have remembered if I hadn't seen it, but d2moto is where I got mine, too. A few years ago. It was one of the first things I put on the bike. Too wet in SF for the OEM. They went in easy, I never felt the need to try and put springs in there. Only time I notice is duckwalking the bike back they hit my legs and fold up sometimes. They have served me well.

Looks to me like D2Moto is selling the exact same stuff as the ebay seller from Hong Kong. With the discount code that KLRonbo gave the price is very close to the same if I buy three sets.

But which ones to get? If the DR pegs fit the KLR should I go with those or should I get the one that is speced for the KLR? Difference in the mounting bracket.

Get the ones for the KLR. The DR uses a slightly larger pin. The footpegs are otherwise the same.
