Great Pegs, Great Price $13+Shipping

I had these on my 07 and several of the other guys here ordered a set and loved them. They are now even cheaper and some of the new guys might like to order a set.

Here is the link:

How much did they increase vibration?

I really didn't see that much of a difference, but I wear a pretty heavy boot when riding. Never did have much of an issue with vibes and my feet, has always been my hands that were sensitive to that.

I have a set of similar pegs, and I have friends that purchased these pegs and we all love them.. They're wide, and the stock pegs are like greased ice when they're wet, while these don't care if they're wet or dry. Your feet don't move unless you want them to move..

The ONLY complaint that I've heard is the fact that these don't have a return spring, where mine do.. Not a big issue at all, but it's just something to consider.. I think the springs are available, too..

Do you know if these would fit an 08? I called the company, but the woman I talked to didn't seem to know what I was talking about.

Thanks, man. Was it necessary to move the shift lever or brake to accommodate the extra width? And do they mount right on...is there any drilling or sorcery needed?

I promise, that's my last question...about foot pegs.

Thanks, really appreciate all your help.

LOL, all questions are good, thats how we learn. I may have moved the shifter up one or two teeth, but if we did it wasn't a big deal to do. I always kept the brake pedal up as high as possible anyway, cause the rear brakes sucked, and I needed all the leverage I could get. They might initially feel tight going into the mount, but a good rubber mallet was all we needed to install them in any of the bikes. We just reused the pins that held the OEM pegs. You might try a little bit of grease on them to help with free movement.

Just to give you an idea of how much I liked them, I just ordered a set for my Wee Strom. I hate slippery wet rubber pegs, just dangerous.
