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 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...

i ordered a set of those 15$ ebay cast pegs. ill update when they get here to let everyone know quality and such
I just got mine today. They look like they'll fit, but I haven't put them on yet. Cast steel, ebay says. I have no idea how to test the quality, so I hope they handle a bike falling on them. :)

They look exactly like they did in the ebay photo.

Does anyone ever carry a spare footpeg? Or can the rears be swapped to the front in an emergency?

i believe the rears can be swapped but they dont have the c-clip like the fronts do they have a tiny keeper pin, not sure if that makes a diference

I haven't ridden with them yet, but test-shifting with the boot on seemed OK.

Unlike the previous set I ordered, these actually fit, which was a good starting point.

On the left, paint and burrs prevented the pin from going through. I'm sure the proper file would have fixed it, but I didn't have one, so I attacked it with the next smallest drill bit. After a tiny amount of drilling, the pin went through fine.

The pegs don't fold completely upright, presumably by design to protect stuff?

Pictures below.

got mine today also had to do some light drilling to get the bolts through no big deal. is there anything to put on them like a spring to keep them in the down position?

Mine didn't ship with springs, but I see a little hole in the side of the peg that looks like it could take one.

But mine are also loose enough they just fall back down under gravity.
