    On my new old 2001, I vowed not to farkle it, but to ride it. That lasted less than 20 miles. Inspired by other posts on this forum, yesterday, I installed fat foot pedals purchased on eBay from Global Motorsports, Laguna Hills, California for $19.95 plus $6.90 shipping. (I don't see an eBay listing for them today, however.) These are the metal castings with A 3 on the right and 3 B on the left. I thought they would be black, but they are gray, which is fine with me.







    They come with two holes for the return spring tang. As previously posted by others, the left one goes right on. However, neither hole on the right one is in the correct location. My cordless drill and tired bits were not up to drilling a new hole like most people do and I was reluctant to snip the tang shorter as has been suggested elsewhere. I always like to be able to go back. Instead, in a moment of genius (Or laziness -- there's a fine line there.) I rotated the spring end to end and put the bent tang into the peg hole and let the straight tang rest on the bracket where it fell.







    In the future, I might bend the tang down, but it does not stick up far enough to catch on anything and the spring action works great. Now all I have to do is take them for a ride and try them out.

    One of the better upgrades for the TW, if you ask me. The stock footpegs were just a little small for my size 12's, so when I saw that a lot of folks on this forum purchased these, I gave them a shot, and never looked back. I've saved the stock pegs, but still don't know why. I don't ever see putting them back on, and if I was to ever sell the TW, I'm sure the new owner would appreciate the larger pegs as well.

    ... you keep them in case they large ones break. Then you can still ride until you can get your replacements.

    True, especially since it's that Chinese pot metal. Still really sturdy little suckers though. I have total confidence standing on them with all of my 226lbs.

    Those 12 year old Chinese kids do good work.

    Inspired by your new foot pegs and reading other post where people have enlarged their stock foot pegs I decided to give it a try. My welding ability is along the lines of "slop and pile" but I believe the welds to be strong and with a little grinding and some spray paint they look fair.

    Total cost was less than $2.



    Due to the rainy weather I have yet to try them out.

    I liked the first foot peg enlargements so much I made a second set for my second TW. They don't look as cool as the Chinese ones with spikes but they don't slip.



    I was really surprised how much I could feel the difference through the soles of my boots. The wider ones are much more comfortable than the narrow ones.



    I haven't "tested" them yet but I bet the ones I made, when they hit a rock, will bend long before the break. Reports to follow on that prediction.












    I can easily feel the difference between the narrow and wide pegs through the soles of these boots.

    I think your pegs look great. A triangular file or a grind wheel will put some teeth on the outer band real easy.

    One neat way that I saw to make similar add-ons for pegs but with the "spikes" was to take a piece of flat stock twice as wide as you need and drill closely spaced holes down the center line. Then all you have to do is cut lengthwise down the flatstock through the center of the holes, and you have pieces to do two pegs, both with "spikes"
