    Peg change

    Why do a lot of guy change the stock pegs? I have no issues with mine. I could see if you where taking hits on a mx track where you'd want to spread the impact on the souls of your feet, but hardly anyone rides a TW that way. Especially with the stock shock.

    Out here in the West, rough terrain is much more common, and getting your feet bounced off the footpegs is sure to produce the desire to have bigger ones in a hurry. Also, if you spend a considerable amount of time up on the pegs, bigger pegs are more comfortable......we do take hits like a MX track....a very rough MX track, as a matter of course.....except for the jumps....

    Bigger pegs aren't better, they're just bigger! I guess it depends on what kind of shoes / boots you wear but I like the ones that came with the bike

    I've ordered a pair of Krator FP003 as I read they were recommended by TDubzKid. They haven't arrived yet but I'm anticipating a lot of standing in my future.

    IMS Pegs here, I think it was one of the first mods I did to my TW when I bought it almost 11 years ago. Most of my riding is in very rough, rocky areas of the mountains and sometimes the desert. Like someone else said having larger pegs makes it easier for standing and for me gives me some flexibility on where to rest my feet.

    One word of caution, two weeks ago I was on a ride with a friend on a TW. My friend collided with another bike, his right-side peg took a direct hit from the front wheel of another MC at-speed on the trail which shattered the cheap Chinese peg he'd been using on his TW. Snapped it right at the mount which made riding it 30 miles home (thankfully only five of them were off-road), well interesting. I'm not sure what brand the cheap pegs were, I can post a pic. Needless to say they've since been replaced by a set of IMS pegs.

    This is the peg which broke-off. Again, no idea on the brand.

    I felt like they were just too small and I am a small guy ... almost feel like mini bike size. They're certainly manageable, but the larger sized pegs definitely make a difference if you're going on dirt/rocky trails. Plus, it only cost me $24 to upgrade. It was a big win and now I could certainly never go back to the stock size.

    Like Kev250R, IMS pegs were the first mod within days of getting my TW. I'm short with big feet (11US/45EU) and the extra space is more reassuring while providing more flexibility in where I rest my feet. I did the IMS shifter at the same time to get additional space and to get the shift peg a little further out. Perfect setup for me.

    I'm thinking I'll buy the IMS pegs now.
