Ebay cast foot pegs

Has anyone else bought these?
I installed mine today and they seem strong enough to hold my weight even while offroad. They're higher than the stock ones and shifting is kinda hard.But Ill adjust that.
I think for $20 they do the trick very well. Look them up. Chinese made but what isnt?

I got some off amazon that are probably the exact same as you have. My assessment is the same as yours, a touch closer to the shifter but I got used to it.

Went to Ace and picked up 2 spring style hose clamps and small hitch pins to install em.

I bought 3 prs for different bikes. They work great. Stopped by the local MC shop and looked through spare parts and got some springs that work for them. I think they are off an R6.

Mine have been great and I've stood on em a LOT. If you buy the "1 extended shifter, you're problem will be gone. Plus, everyone I know who has the +1(including me) has noticed the bike shifts way smoother. Especially into 2nd. Physics or something. Tom could probably explain it. I can't.

I just ordered the Top Gun extended shifter. I hope my 14s fit a little better.
I like the TopGun guys,Theyre straight shooters with good quality and their heavy spring is the best thing Ive done to barbie.I hope the shifter is as good.

I think you'll be pleased.

I just installed my Peg lowering brackets. I cannot believe how much difference an inch down and an inch back makes.
I can stand so much better and my big feet fit a lot better too. I can even lock the rear wheel now.
Anyone with big feet or long legs really need these. dont forget the loctite!!!

I ordered a set once, and they didn't fit, of all things. Seller swore it was the right part, but it didn't look like it did in the photo. They sent a shipping label for a return, and I got my money back NP, but now I'm all nervous about ordering them.

Here's another set:

Maybe I'll pull the trigger. Wet season's coming...
