    So after 15 months of riding with my $25 fleabay pegs ,one of them snapped right off after dropping the bike on its side. I have been an advocate for these for the past few months and am eating my own words now. They did hold up well and endure several drops but I need a new set now. I looked at ebay and the prices range from $17-$80. IMS pegs are too expensive. I've seen people use d2moto pegs but they dont make them specifically for the TW.

    Are any of these applicable to the TW? I have also seen people making their stock pegs larger but I prefer to keep them as backups.

    Both me and Riding Partner are using the D2moto pegs. I think they are actually for PW80s, but with a just bit of grinding you can shape them to fit the TW pretty easy. Even got the springs to work correctly in them. About an hour of work. Buy cheap, invest the hour, or pay bigger money and slap them straight on. I just couldn't stand paying for the IMS price.

    Lots of folks have been very happy with the low cost E-Bay pegs. I certainly gave them some thought but, since I do off-road and frequently stand on my pegs for extra control, I needed a platform that I can really count on. I am a lite-weight at 155lbs. The last thing I need is to have a foot-rest break while it is supporting about half my body weight.... Can not say I have heard of the inexpensive pegs breaking while anyone was riding. Seems, I was willing to pay more for 'some measure' of added protection. Gerry
    Take care my Friend.........

    They did not break while I was riding but when I dropped it! I thought they were great... until they broke. I remember an older thread that spoke of d2moto pegs that said they would not fit the tw200 and only needed a good grinding to fit. Are these the ones?

    And do they come with the hardware? Does anyone have some pics of the install and modification needed? I believe someone mentioned a discount code?

    Just wanted to make sure these were the ones I should order. I believe someone commented that they need to be ground down a bit?

    Yes you'll need to grind them. I'll try to find you pictures of way I did.



    You better order a set of RM80 springs too. TW springs wont fit in the cavity of the RM pegs.

    I thought that at first too but after I enlarged them and saw how well they worked I had no qualms about doing the foot pegs on my second TW. If you enlarge them and don't like it you can always find a second pair on ebay or in the TW200 classified section.
