Pivot Pegz for the Tiger

Got my Pivot Pegz for the 800XC a few days ago, thought some would be interested. I've had them for a while on my DR and think they're great. Only one picture per thread? Ken

And the tip is: If you remove the clip I'm pointing at, then pull the pin linking the rear of the brake pedal to the brake master cylinder, the brake pedal will swing up (spring loaded) far enough for the peg mounting pin to slip out of the peg carrier bracket so you can swap pegs.

Make sense? When you try to pull the pin holding the factory Tiger right footpeg out, you can't. It hits the rear brake pedal, you can't get the peg loose.

Yes I have gold wheels...slightly embarrassed to admit it, but, ... Rustoleum. I think they look a lot better than dirty black.

And I should probably say in full disclosure that I spend a half a day a week playing at being a machinist apprentice at Kientech Engineering here in Southern Oregon, and that's where I got the Pivot Pegz. The DR 650 / DR 350 guys here on ADV Rider know Jesse and what a great guy he is.

I think the Pivot Pegz are a great idea, but $170 good? Would like to feel them on the bike.

You sprayed Rustoleum on $1000 powder coated wheels? ... Might be worth it in future to have them powder coated ... GOLD! ... but Black doesn't show dirt.

We love Jesse! Let me know if you guys have any deals on GSXR Mid pipes!
Man ... I really need one. I got the muffler ... can't afford the mid pipe.
I did all my DR stuff through Jesse. You guys do a great job!

I have them on my Husky and feel they make a world of difference in difficult offroad situations. Standing, leaning forward, leaning backward, and in situations where you need to be able to get your toe down and make an upshift or pay for it if you miss, they are a godsend.

I'm still debating as to whether I need them on the Tiger; they're great but if you are not doing really technical stuff you may not need them.

OH MY!! What was your thought process behind this? I like gold rims and it might look good so maybe some more pics? I had gold rims on my old 450 (real excel gold rims). I got tons of good comments. I think blue would look good!

Off road I think you'll do fine. More and more good choices for tubeless off road tires front and rear: Heidenau, Mefo, Shinko, Conti, Metzeler and others are now doing better 19" fronts and good 150 sized rear tires for off road. Two sets of wheels would be nice!
Pretty much my thinking exactly. The Heidenaus are pretty great but I'll wait and see how the stock Pirelli Scorpions do. I test rode the 800 and XC back to back, on pavement of course, and definitely preferred the 800. Still, the bikes were so close that my choice was difficult. I even contacted Woody's Wheels here in Denver to ask about sealing the XC's wheels and the fact that they couldn't do the 21" front wheel sealed (no pun intended) the deal for me.

Bikes like the Tigers and GS's are compromises but one compromise I'd rather not make is tubes. I'm no doubt overreacting but that's me. Now I just need a break in the weather for a few days...

Thing is those bars don't protect the bottom half of the rad. What if that rock hits that part of it? You can't protect everything but any bars you do fit should have been thought through properly and these haven't IMO. I agree totally with motosickle2000.

+1 SW Motech bars protect everything (well, as well as can be expected...).
