Hey Fellow T-Dubbers (T-Dubbites?),

A question regarding the fit on the new DMO foot pegs: Did yamaha fix the offset in later years?



Can you measure your pegs from the back of the rear axel nut to the front of the peg bracket?

on my '94 i got 21 3/4" for the left side and 22 1/2" on the right. with the pegs installed it is 22" to the front of both pegs.



a problem came up for one owner and dmo bill wants to resolve any problems.



thanks!

Can't measure from the rear axle nut, chain adjustment will cause a different measurement for every one.

My buddy's 2010 still has the offset.

good point, though if there is a stagger it should still be different from right to left, despite a difference in actually length. correct?

You are correct sir, on my '07 I have 22 1/4" on the left side, and 23" on the right side.

Measured from the back of the rear axle nut to the front of the peg bracket. looks like 3/4" difference.

CORRECTION, properly measured the difference is 5/8"

I just checked both of my stock pegged TWs. They only have a 3/16” offset.



Measuring from the front of the foot peg (the toothed part that you rest your foot on) to the CENTER LINE of the rear axle, mine are:



Code:
2008:   LEFT:  21-1/16”          RIGHT:  21-1/4”          

2003:   LEFT:  21-1/4”           RIGHT:  21-7/16”


In both cases the right one is only 3/16” farther forward than the left.

I looked at mine with the DMO pegs on and they do look like they are offset now. I didn't measure I will do that tomorrow and take a pic.



FYI mine is a 2013

I was thinking the same thing, I measured 23 1/4" left and 22 1/2" right from the end of the swingarm to the front of the pegs. Mine is a 2005.

I measured from the center of the axle to the back edge of the new DMO footpegs. Left side is 20 inches and the right side is 19 inches. SO the right side sits back an additional inch. It doesn't bug me at all but I can see the difference looking down. I couldn't get a good picture.

Hello. The issue of the powdercoating chipping is being addressed. Currently, I am switching to a hybrid powder coating which is not quite as shiny, but way more durable.



Now, the bigger problem. I put a mountain of time into making sure these footpegs addressed the offset issue. Now I'm finding that no two TW200's seem to have the same offset, even though Yamaha NEVER changed the footpegs or brackets from 1987 thru 2013. I've stopped sales on my site because I don't know how to address this problem. I've already got one set I have to refund. Sales have been great, but I don't want to have a massive recall.



I'm not in this for the money by any means. At the same time, I take great pride in my work. I can't be selling a product that fits one bike and not another. Yet I can find no rhyme or reason why the offset is so different on every bike. I also do not have the ability to make a custom pair for every single bike. Until I can find out what's going on, I'm stopping sales on my site.

OK, I need to correct my previous statement. I put on my good thick glasses, turned on all the lights in the shed and measured three times. For he record, the offset on my '07 is 5/8".

I apologize for my mistake.

What measurements will be most useful to you? I's also be glad to take pics and email them to you, just let us know what you want/need to help.

which reference points you use to measure really doesn't matter, as long as you use the same reference for both sides. it is the relative (net) difference i'm curious to see.



though it does strike me as odd that there is such a variance from bike to bike......



THANKS!

My footpeg on the left might be bent back a bit from a previous owner. I'm not sure. Anyway, here's a photo from straight down, and squared away in photoshop.



My bike is a 1993.







Honestly I wouldn't have noticed this unless someone told me about it. I inspected all of my other bikes in the garage and not one of them has the footpegs in the same spot on both sides.



I think you can safely say that you have helped to solve the offset even if it's not perfect on both sides. I don't get why it bothers people, but then again I'm not that picky.

Just put a disclaimer on the pegs that you can't be responsible for a perfect fit since Yamaha can't nail down their mounting points.





Maybe Yamaha has a few of these goofballs playing with the robot welders

The part number for the right side foot peg assembly (bracket that mounts to frame, and footpeg components) changed in 2003.

1987-2002 15A-27420-01-90

2003-2013 15A-27420-02-90



Not sure if they really changed anything or just came up with a new number???



The left side foot peg assembly part number has been the same for all years 1987-2013...

1987-2013 2JX-27410-00-90

Mr. Bracket. Thanks for the part number. My listings are showing the same for both sides from 1987 thru 2013. After seeing your part number, I realize that Yamaha has superceded the new part number over the old one. But now I wonder exactly what the difference is. Some riders are claiming that the 2007 thru 2010's still have the offset while others claim the 2006 has no offset. I don't want to totally stop making these footpegs. I could actually make two models, 5/8 offset and NO offset. But I still need to know which models need which type. To all members, thanks for looking into this.



Bill



PS: Not to get off topic, but, Mr. Bracket, was it you that built that CRF450 BW looking thing some time back?

Any chance I could persuade you to send me a "less" offset right side peg? I'd be happy to take more measurements and pics and email them to you. I have a 2005 and did not notice any offset, or at least very little, with the stock pegs.
