I'll check there as well.  Ill also check with alliexpress.  It takes a long time to ship but I have four months to wait until I can ride.

Mine has been on for around 1500 miles or so and still ok..Just a dab of blue thread lock added.
It is a two minute fit ..if it fails and as the pedal is steel I will just make something up myself.

Let's hope they aren't junk.  I hate wasting money.

Do you have a pic of those? Why do you think they may fail?  Shabby quality?

I dont think they will fail it's just that the screws are quite small as the have to be to fit through existing spaces in the flat plate area.
History tells me that a lot of  Chinese screws/bolts,especially  the smaller sizes..are not the best.
I thread locked them in so reluctant to take out now.
I fitted them quickly whilst waiting for other riding pals to arrive but if I were to fit the same again..I would look to fit more quality screws...just a thought.

Thanks for the heads up.  I'll source some quality screws before I install mine.

My foot peg add ons came today.  Very nice.  No need to source new screws.  The original Honda screws worked perfect.  Nice thing is they don't add any additional height.  The only negative is the cavity on the Honda foot peg could fill with dirty and mud from your boot.  I may add a piece of rubber to stop that from happening.

No, I thought I might give it a go first and see how it works out.
