Another option for foot pegs
on: November 18, 2020, 07:02:39 PM
I just order a pair of foot pegs from AliExpress.  I thought they are a good choice because they are an add on to the OE peg.  Just remove the rubber insert and install.  I'll do a full review when they arrive.

They look just the job. Iíd considered making something that bolted to the original pegs but someone has done it for me!

The good thing is that it should be easy to swap back to the rubber inserts for normal riding.

here is my experience with these foot peg extensions.
i had them fitted for a while, the silver ones look good fitted and make the bike look more adventures.
on road riding was ok with them, they do make the gap between the foot pegs and gear/brake lever smaller i had to adjust my gear lever up a bit to change gear easier the rear brake pedal felt about the same so didnt bother adjusting it.
 off road was the problem when stood up on the foot pegs I couldnt apply the rear brake enough going down bankings it wasnt nice to find out when you needed more rear brake and changing up a gear was a little more difficult.
  i could of adjusted the brake lever up to compensate and adjusted the gear lever up a little more but i took them off and put the oem ones back on as i felt adjusting both levers more would of had a negative effect for on road road riding , i am now able to use both levers with out any difficulty on or off road i do how ever miss the grip they provided i was tempted to cut the front edge off so they were flush with the foot rest just to see if that would help i still havent done it yet.
 (or should i just get the stainless bar and welder out ideas for a warmer time)

im a shoe size 8uk  i used to wear paddock style boots then started wearing full length/height boots thats when i found it more difficult to change gear and use the rear brake lever with the foot peg extension, depending what style boot you wear you may or may not have any issues.

Cheers for the review, very helpful. Iíll probably still try some as they are so cheap and could possibly be modified. I must admit the standard rubber inserts donít cause me any real issues but the extra grip would be nice.

I'm looking for something wider than the OE peg.  The OE aren't the best for standing when riding.  I did fit a pair of wider ones but they look like an add on.  These look more OE.  I'm not doing any heavy off road riding so don't require off road type boots.  I wear a pair of Klim boots.  I got a notice they have been sent so I should see them before spring.   :138:
