Tiger XC accessories / farkles thread

The stock foot pegs on the Tiger 800 XC are a tad to small for long periods of standing. Whats the best after market option for the money? What do you have and how do you like it?Here's some options i found online.

Triumph Option $150


Another Triumph Option $150


SW Mototech $159


Touratech $196


Gillies $350


Pivot Pegs $169

The Pivot's look tight for the price!

I'm thinking the same thing. Once you compare them all and the prices i think Pivot Pegs come out on top.

i had the pivot pegs and hated them. from the inside of the bike outward they are too small. it made my foot feel like it was going to roll off when standing. i would try the triumph ones if i tried again. or maybe buy the weld on type and just modify the stock pegs.

oh yeah and, if i remember right, if you look at the measurements of the pivot compared to stock they are about the same when it comes to length. the problem i could see was that the peg started a little closer to the connection point so the actual usable amount of peg is less. if that makes since...

The length on the stock pegs is fine its the width that needs increased.

right. with the pivots you go opposite of the stocks. you get wider but reduce the length (usable length).

So you think the SW Mototech pegs are the best deal?

The SW Mototech foot pegs are 15mm lower than stock pegs.

The Touratech foot pegs look ridiculously over priced. The Touratech name does not increase the value in my book. I can't seem to find any measurements on the Triumph after market pegs. They look nice but wondering how wide they are.

Two Wheel Pro's has the Triumph Pegs shipped for 146.80.

Subtotal: $137.85
Shipping & Handling: $8.95
Total: $146.80

Also struggling with this .... The pivot pegs move your foot closer to the gear/brake levers too.
As I have bigish feet with a high arch this creates a clearance issue for me.

Go with Pivot Pegz. I tried the SW Motech and they are very slippery when wet. The stock rubber pegs are less slippery.

The pivot pegs are very well built and the pivot function is really nice. With wider pegs, you feet will rock on the pegs if they don't pivot.

You've tried both the Pivot and the SW Mototech?
