They're spring loaded (I think) they sit behind your legs when you stand, making it less effort and more control.
Can't remember what they're called.
A few used them in the Oz Safari.


I think...

Oh ok..... I thought they might have something to do with standing. Spring loaded makes sense as that would provide a little more support.

Very cool,

Jon...

Click the pic. Sorry for the popping sound...figured it out later.

G'day TropyHunter, the "popping" occurs when severe movement causes the mount/buckle (gopro parts) union to rattle. This can be eliminated by the use of the " Quick-Release/Vibration Plug " which can be purchased with the "grab bag of mounts". In the pic here http://gopro.com/camera-mounts/grab-bag-of-mounts/ . It is very hard to see in the pic ... it is a soft rubber horseshoe shaped device with a tether that fits over the "thumb nob" and it slips into the union described earlier.

as far as I know, it is only available in this pack and the "SURF HERO" pack.

I hope this info helps . Keep the vids coming mate ... awesome.


cheers

Hey, is the young lady drying her nails with a heat gun in the background? Nice to see your well stocked shop being put to good use.

You're right they called leg-pegs i designed these a while back & made them done on CNC machihe it helps a lot when u stand riding specially going uphill and basically they were designed originally to release stress/effort of ur wrists & elbows by pressing the back or ur boots against them thus heping control the bikes with ur legs as well. I designed and installed them on my DRZ400 as well.

I find it still pops even with the nose plug. It reduces the movement but doesn't eliminate it.
It also comes with the Helmet Hero kit.

Wow.....I'm impressed.

If I tore my bike apart like that on the side of the road a cop would come by and arrest me for trying to steal parts off an abandoned bike

I'm going to check my the tool kit now because it's obvious I do not carry enough.

Jon...

Not everyone removes the upper chain roller, and not all left on fail, but by the time you see an issue it will be too late, as the bike will have removed it for you.

Lots of opinions on this in the main DR650 thread.
