I remember waaay back in the day when I invented these by welding an F3 to an F5...
Still using them to this day...
Installed mine today ...... Stock pegs were. Way too short in my opinion. Whenever I stood up on the bike I felt like my feet were only half supported.
Awesome product worth every penny.
definitely in! gotta be nice for those long hauls.
they're on...... wow ! what a huge difference in comfort and confidence up on the pegs. i baulked some at the cost but these have totally transformed the standing ride. at 6'4" and running a rox low pro riser, this last 1/2" provided by the low boy mount is the final ergonomic tweak. brilliant......
Gotta spend more money, I suppose. Guess it's out to the backyard where my money tree grows...
I got a break in the weather today and was able to take the Adventure out for rip and I can say these pegs may be literally the best money spent yet improving the bike from its stock form ....... And trust me I'm not scared to admit I have spent way too much money this winter hopping this thing up.
No half planted feeling while standing on the pegs. While seated it feels as it did before but anything out of the saddle it's a 110% improvement.
All - I noticed that having fat wide footpegs can get in the way of putting your foot down (when you really need it). But then again, my inseam is only 32.
The are sooo nice on a long ride whilst standing though....
I compromised, and got the PIVOT PEGZ....
^^^ this is true. they definitely favour the lanky amongst us.
Has anyone had seat time with the Evolution Air version?
Wow, the cost for these is NUTZ..
Picked up a set of Adventure for my 500 EXC.
I wear size 10.5.
I found the stock pegs to be a bit small.
Nice foot peg, but it's made from aluminium which is soft and weak. Bought these, glanced a rock, and they just fell apart around the pin area. Not much strength/material there at all. Big waste of money for a week of usage.
Don't buy aluminium billet pegs! Ever!
Been bashing mine for over a year, work great for me.
Couldn't install out lo-boy style.
The brake pedal would've been higher.
Oh yeah, be careful when wearing shorts. They'll cut you bad.
They do add stability. Very comfortable.
I wear size 11 boots.
The 2015 500 exc 6 days direct require any shims to fit.
I was looking for some new footpegs a few months ago, took the plunge and bought a set of the Fastway Adventure pegs - love 'em!
Not cheap but great pegs, great traction and great looking. They do add a bit of extra width when you put your footdown, but you quickly get used to placing your foot a bit wider and I don't think about it at all any more.
Finally, as someone mentioned above they are aluminium and therefore soft. I see that as an advantage not a problem. If you tap a rock hard enough I would rather the peg absorbs the energy (which has to go somewhere) and takes the smash. Easier and cheaper to replace a damaged or broken peg than straighten the frame or weld the brackets back on....
Seemed like with the Fastways, I was always "in between" splines on my shift lever. Tried them high, low, changed back and forth a couple times, finally put the stockers back on...ahhh, perfect!
I have standard Fastway's in lowboy position, and have same Goldilocks gripe about the shifter position. Another poster suggested kerfing the lever, bending and welding it. May do that eventually, but it would be nice to find a lever with a couple of holes to move the toe boss around for fine tuning, like the RC8 has.
I have the same issue with the Fastway pegs. I just adapt to it and it hasn't been a problem. If you want the width (nearly) of the Fastways and an otherwise stock feel, the KTM Rally pegs are hard to beat:
They look great, Im looking for wider platform and would love the lower height. But Im confused on how they install standard vs lo boy, there is only one hole, how do you get different heights? this will be on a KLR
