Real-world experience with Beta foot pegs?

I have a '95 Beta Techno.

I would like to find some wider foot pegs for it. Lower & back would be nice, too!

RYPUSA says that the old Betas are "weird", and their mounting bracket is unique. They don't have anything that will work.

Anybody found something currently available that will work?
Thanks!

I have the - S3 HARDROCK STEEL FOOT PEG on my Techno. No issue with fit, bolted on in minutes. I like them so much I bought a set for my Rev3 too. I was told by Tec-cycles the Techno used the sandard trials width pegs.

RYPUSA said that they thought the '95s were fitted with old-style brackets. Your sig says you have a "96, so I don't know if that matters. The guy at RYPUSA was "working from memory".

The zero brackets`90-94 were different, `95-`99 techno`s once again different. The rev`s were different but same as everything else. The zero`s and techno`s had odd alignment of the pegs. You might be able to use the pegs on the `95, but they will not be level. As in parallel to the ground for your foot. I`m going from my lost memory. Worst thing all those brackets looked the same but fit just slightly different.

Yea, if you look at the brackets on my 96 Techno they do not look the same angle as on the Rev3. You would not expect the same pegs to fit each bike.

The S3 may not be dead level to the ground on the Techno but I do not notice the angle when riding. The S3 is much wider than the stock Techno pegs and sligtly lower.

What you need to do before you get wider pegs is make the bracket stronger. Weld a rectangalur tab to beef up the peg mounts as they are quite weak. I started doing that after I sheared one off. Had to ride a half a loop at the ute cup that way!
Ps It is hard to tell by the picture, but it looks like you already have wrong pegs judging by the angle. Also looks like the zero mounts, the technos were shorter at the frame. Check out DRKAYAK pictures of his `96. His pegs do look good, but the mounts are shorter.

Why would you replace the "brackets" just to upgrade the foot pegs? Did Beta make the bolt/pivot are that much different?

Here's another picture. It shows that the pegs are pretty much level.

And the bracket *looks* fairly robust.

Beings I was raised by a guy that might try "modding" stock steel pegs, before actually buying them, I say go buy some strap iron, like about 3/8s or less thick, and 1/2 or less, wide, about 5 ft loong (you will use it for other things, trust me) lol. We dig out of our scrap metal bins several times a day...

Then just add to the back side of those pegs 1st, ya might need the #2 most used farm "tool" which is a welder though. #1 most used tool is the "Smoke Wrench" (torch). you want the "front to back" not the outside to inside, to end up near 2 inches wide or just over. It is pretty easy.

Soon as I find a pic, Ill show you what I mean.

Oly, now that I see both pegs. I bet the right peg is a gas gas peg. If you look at both pegs are they made differently?
Mitch. The beta frames were different between models, hence different mounts. And beta pegs in the early years only worked on beta`s.

The mounts were a weak spot. And I said to make them stronger, not too replace them. Any `new` peg will be larger and stronger than the original pegs. In fact the rev3 pegs seemed to be made weak on purpose. You could barely hit a rock on a rev3 and bend a peg.

Yes it was the zero`s that had a very odd angle. Here is a zero mount (which the bracket is quite different) a modified mount, and the changes in pegs. DR. Kayak had rev 3 pegs to start with. The original hebos are the strongest, but are taller.(Best pegs ever) Those s3 pegs do look great!
