Would happily use the dimensions as a guide. VTWoodchuck is your KLR a gen2?

Thanks

Yes mine is a 2017 Gen 2. I don't know about Gen 1 versus Gen 2 though I suspect they are the same? They are virtually identical to the IMS Super Sport Pegs that sell for $70 - $80. I'm very happy with mine. They sell them on Amazon.com too if you can't find them on eBay.

You mean IMS Super Stock pegs? They may look virtually the same but that would be all. IMS Super Sport pegs are stainless steel the ones you are talking about a steel. I am willing to bet they are nowhere near the same quality, will they work, yes, but not even close quality wise.

I'm really happy with the way it turned out and it's a permanent fix.

The guy who did the welding mentioned that he's done this exact same procedure around a dozen times, so don't feel alone!
I missed this post (and the rest of the thread!) while I was gone.

@KLR Kool-Aid!, is there any chance that you have pictures of the repair? Even an 'after' photo of the foot-peg boxes would be helpful.

Thanks!

Yep, I meant to say "Super Sport, my brain must have been misfiring at 12:30 am. However IMS makes two versions of the Super Sport peg under two different part numbers. The older, but still available IMS Super Stock #277317 is the one that is virtually identical to the eBay pegs. I think you are thinking of the newer IMS Super Sport Pro #273116. I attacked pictures of the 3 pegs below. The first are the eBay pegs. the second are the the IMS #277317, the third are the IMS #273116. Cheers

wow, the first two really do look similar, even the amount of teeth and pattern. The third pic I believe is the IMS Pro Series

Grant S, Yes the footpeg brackets are the same design from 1987 thru 2018. Only the paint color differs.

Yep. I can only say that I've had them on my bike since spring and have put quite a few miles on the eBay el-cheapos with no problems.

I wonder if there is enough space behind the captive nuts to allow the tapered tap to penetrate far enough thru to cut threads to the proper full depth?
