    This may have been posted already, but i want to know if there are any interchangeable footpegs that are better than the KLR stock ones. I dont really want to pay 70 bucks for the IMS ones. Any suggestions...

    The IMS pegs are worth the money. Cowboy up and do the right thing.

    I spent a few hours in moto shops, and never found pegs on any dirtbikes that would fit.

    Word around the campfire is that DR650 pegs will fit, but I have no personal experience with em.

    Where can I get better footpegs?
    The stock KLR pegs are good for the road, but get very slippery offroad when wet or muddy. There are a few options for replacements:

    --KLR250 pegs, a cheap option if you can find them from a salvage yard

    --DR650 steel pegs (1995 or equiv), which fit right on the KLR brackets.

    You need 1RH front footrest, 43550-44B10-019; 1 LH front footrest, 43560-44B10-019; and 2 springs, 09448-15008. The Kawi pins will work fine, although they are a little smaller in diameter than the DR pins. If you want to use the DR pins (p/n 09200-10008, 2 req'd), you will have to drill out the KLR peg brackets. ​

    --IMS Super Stock and Pro Series pegs, probably the priciest but most aggressive.

    Ok, so where do I get better passenger footpegs?
    --Passenger pegs from a DR350 will fit.

    If you are really cheap, take a utility knife and cut the rubber off the stock pegs, then serrate the pegs with a die grinder. It costs nothing. If you want to get fancy, drill about three quarter inch holes in each side to let the water out and tack weld the metal collar to keep them from flopping.

    I have a ten year old pair of the DR650 pegs on my KLR and they are the best bang for the buck choice. Back when I got my mine they were about half the cost of the IMS pegs which was about the price of a new front tire and I didn't see the IMS pegs as having that much extra value.

    And another!

    Got the pegs from Ron Ayers delivered to the house for about $34. I think that's a great deal.

    And they work fantastically!

    FWIW, XR 50's and KLR's use the same IMS pegs...

    These are good - cheaper than IMS too

    I have them on my KLR - they dropped right in.

    KLR650 FAQ advise 1995 pegs with springs fit... you need the springs as well... you can use the original pins and clips.

    Another vote for the Tusk pegs here! I like mine. Excellent fit and finish. And 59.00 is cheap enough.

    The DR650 pegs have a larger hole, if you use the stock KLR pins, the pegs will have some flop. You can use DR pins and drill out your brackets to eliminate this, but then ya gotta buy DR pins too.

    I've heard pegs for CRF Hondas fit the KLR as well.

    Easier to just pony up for the Tusks IMO.
