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

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?

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.

For ten bucks take a chance. They may work out OK.

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.

Hello to all. Just signed up here and been doing some reading and searching. Just picked up a 2002 completely stock TW 200E for my sons.Darn near like new with just under 1,800 miles from a older gentleman who was the owner since new and hardly rode it very much in th last ten years. My boys just turned 15 and I figure it will be a great bike for them to "learn" on.



Anyway, I want to change the footpegs and was wondering if anyone here has these kind or if they will fit for sure before I buy them off ebay.

they appear to have a differant type of mount/pivot point than the others do as well as the stock ones.

Any feedback on this will be appreciated.

Thanks

I ordered the same ones for $1 less. Hopefully they will hold up better than my previous ones. The other ones said they are made of steel but what kind? I chose these ones this time so I could use the oem springs. We'll see... I'll post a pic of my broken ones next to these when they arrive.

4 days later after receiving my tracking number, I received an email saying that they are currently out of stock and my money has been refunded.



So, back to my question above. IMS has their rm80 superstock pegs on sale for $40. I have heard that some of you have ordered the d2moto rm80 pegs and had to grind them. I'm assuming that is what I would have to do to these. Can someone tell me what they think and what needed to be grinded.

Figured i'd ask this one more time before I bite the bullet and do this without any direction. IMS has their rm80 superstock pegs on sale for $40. I have heard that some of you have ordered the d2moto rm80 pegs and had to grind them. I'm assuming that is what I would have to do to these. Can someone tell me what they think and what needed to be grinded. These pegs are made of high quality steel and I figured that instead of breaking another pair of cheapies, it would probably be cheaper to just buy these!

In the beginning I felt compelled to purchase the IMS pegs. For whatever reason, I paid more than $40. I do not recall any special modding, but that does not say it did not take place. It certainly implies the project was easy and straight forward. Fear not, I am sure you can do it, should it need to be done. If not, send them to me, I will mod and return. Gerry

Thank you mr gizmow. As I am in school for welding, I am no stranger to a grinder. I believe it won't be a problem I just figured I would make sure by asking you guys. I was mainly worried the tabs that go into the bracket may have been too far apart but since they are for the same year rm80s as the d2moto brands that have been made to work, I assume that I won't have a problem. Assuming has gotten me into trouble before and just wanted to make sure that didn't happen this time. Thanks to all for your help. I will post pics of what needs to be done for others like myself who prefer to see what exactly needs to be done before spending money.

PalmState Crawler, perhaps I am confused, or I have confused you. I just went to the IMS website and see that the RM 80's is a designation specifically for a Suzuki, and they are listed for $40.. I made the assumption that when you referenced the IMS pegs that the designation was for the TW200. When I purchased my pegs I got those intended for the TW and assumed you were doing the same. I have no idea what would be involved in fitting Suzuki pegs onto the TW as the item numbers are not the same...



Sorry about the confusion. You will be on your own with this project. Good luck.
Gerry
