I'm not very happy!



Just got an email from D2Moto stating they sold out of our favourite TW footpegs and no idea when they getting stock again.

So what now?



I can't afford the IMS stainless steel ones and I don't want the other cheap brittle lightweight ones.

There are some D2Moto similiar ones advertised here and there on the net but all sellers / suppliers state: "We don't sell / ship to Africa!"

I live in Africa! AAaarghh!!



Can anyone help?

If it's any help to anyone. Fast-Way footpegs for the Honda crf50 will bolt onto the TW200 with a tiny bit of modding (had to take about 1mm of the mount with a grinder). You can pick up used sets for about $30 - and they are
pegs:







I'm running a set on my tw225 as I didnt really like the weight of the cast ones.

Hey, for the D2Moto right-side peg, you don't have to drill another hole for the spring (where the existing hole should have been drilled), I just clipped an eigth-inch off the end of the spring and the peg went on like a charm. Just sayin'...

There are two styles on ebay like in the pics below. I assume the ones in the first pic use the stock springs and pins. In my non expert opinion the ones in the second pic look stronger because they're solid where the pin goes through but I could be wrong. Any opinions about which to get? I'm 230 lbs and use the pegs a lot,. I sure don't want one to break.

@Tirebiter,



Depending on if the vendor on ebay is from california, the ones in the second pic are made from aluminum. I almost bought them but when I inquired about them to the seller, both the black and silver ones were aluminum - Which tends to break rather than bend vs. the steel ones in the first pic. D2moto, kayak-artic, doremousesleep and other various china vendors carry the steel ones and being around you size, I would definetly get the steel ones.

Buy the bigger ones (top photo). I'm constantly standing on mine while dipping through the wet-wash crossings around here and I believe I could have someone riding on my shoulders and they wouldn't break. They're pretty heavy duty and weigh a ton. I think you'll agree when you get 'em.

Well I just recieved the black aluminum ones not reading these threads close enough. OK here's my question. I ride mostly on paved roads with a few excursions on logging roads. Not into anything even moderately heavy duty when it comes to riding. Will these alloy pegs work, or are they predisposed to break?

I would say the latter. Brock broke both of his ten minutes into a trail ride.



Ok, I might be exaggerating slightly. Read the ride report here.
