The sources mentioned here before (D2Moto and the Ebay vendor - Dormousesleep) don't seem to have the wide TW footpegs in stock anymore and the California vendor that does have them has an aluminum variation (instead of the steel), which I'm mistrustful of. So...have I lost out on getting a set of the wide steel footpegs? Has anyone identified a new source?

How about a nice set of used pegs on Ebay. Not my listing but look good enough to me.

in my opinion the extra wide footpegs are a lacking in one area. at least for me with my size 13 feet it would be a little more comfortable if the oversized pegs werent centered over the mounting bracket. if the bracket was a little nearer to the front of the peg it would allow my foot to rest at a little more of a downward angle.

i love the stability they provide and its easy to get used to the new foot position.

that said. if you have the ability to weld and want my old ones you could easily torch off the mounting tabs and weld them to the side of yours. the main complication i see from doing this would be that it would likely hinder the ability of the pegs to fold in..

I welded two stock sets together to make a wider foot rest. Seemed ok, but did not position my foot exactly where I would like it. Purchased the more expensive pegs (made in USA) and my feet still are not where I would like them. Will sell the welded pair for $5. plus shipping. If shipping is a concern, you will need to figure it out. My zipcode is 95973. Gerry

Thanks Giz, but I think I'll keep watching for the wide steel pegs folks were getting from the Chinese suppliers. They received good ratings from users and as I recall, were under $20 shipped.

PM to MrGizmo since Truelight declined the welded pegs -




I think the welded ones will work good for my needs and riding terrain.

@Truelight:



China footpegs are listed on eBay again - different vendor though.

Unfortunately, unlike the previous Ebay ad, this is not an ad for multiple items at a set price. It's just one pair, up for bid, at $16 now plus shipping. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but there are more than one T-dubber (did I just make that up?) looking for them so good ol' supply and demand is sure to make this particular pair rise in value. It's certainly possible that the vendor has a pallet of them and will only squeeze them out one at a time to take advantage of that.

Excellent point! This vendor used to do 3-4 auctions at a time so the price was kept lower - in fact one pair was not even bid on before the supply dried up a few weeks ago.

I couldn't find them for a good price either! So I got pegs from a 98kx100 thats sitting in my back yard, ALL I had to do is grind down the sides so it would fit flush in the mount, I also had to drill a small hole for the stock spring to fit on my bike! If you don't mind a lil work it can save you money and make you feel good. I sprayed mine with a flat black paint rust inhibitor! I didn't have time to prep the pegs correctly for paint, so you will see how ugly they were at the bottom! This forum makes the bike 1000 x's better to own! I thought my 68 chevelle was a blast to completely rebuild! Theres nothing wrong with these and adding lil items is so cool! I might even venture into making my own pedals for sale!

Love you all! (Non sexually)

Nice, I bought the ebay foot pegs which work really well. After closer inspection the foot pegs on my 3 year olds TTR 50 are bigger than the stock TW pegs!

I guess I could have just swapped them but look at all the un-boxing excitement I would have missed.

I decided that I didn't want to be limited to footpegs that would fit the TW in stock form. So.... I made brackets that mount to the TW frame and accept YZ250/450 footpegs.. You can get every imaginable footpeg for that bike!!! While I was at it, I moved the footpeg mounting position towards the rear on the right hand side. I didn't like one peg being further forward than the other....







You can even run Pivot Pegs on these mounts!
