Hello TW freaks. I have had my 2001 TW for a couple months now and it is certainly everything I knew it would be! Hooray! I love this thing. I have only ridden my WR250f once since I got it! So I am interested in hearing what larger pegs you guys have used. I have a hard time deciding what to get next! Rear rack? Front tire? smaller tail light AAARGH! After Thursdays 30 miles of singletrack and 1 sore toe I am thinking about footpegs. I know the pegs will not give me more ground clearance but more grip for sure.
p.s. pic of my bike posting soon. Have very much enjoyed all the info and ride pics here on the forum.
Yes the stock pegs really are pretty terrible, especially if you ride offroad where standing is optimal.
Haven't done much to my tw so far other than fix broken stuff from previous owner, but will probably start with wider footpegs
Here's a shot of my R/H D2Moto peg and what I did with the original peg.
15/50 sprockets, O-ring chain, D2Moto foot pegs
tweaked carb (127.5 jet, 0.019 needle shim, idle screw @2.25),
Rubbermaid "Action Packer" on homemade brackets
I used the same foot pegs and copied srs and did the brake lever mod too.

Are the cheap Ebay footpegs any good? I like the brake pedal idea.
I don't want a pickle, etc.
+1 Brock had a similar experience with the aluminum pegs.
I got some cheap Ebay pegs, I didn't even install them, I could tell by the weight they were junk, I'm done buying Chinese junk on Fbay.
