    That's a chunk of money!
    You may need to spacer your pegs out with a couple of washers, and turn the bolts around so the nuts are on the outside.

    Cheers! They are not cheap, but will make the bike more comfortable.

    They the ones I’ve got Andy but I don’t have the centre stand. And I’m the one that needs it most, with most flats per kilometre :imaposer

    I run lowered pegs using the plates that set them back, and down with the swmotech centrestand. had to space out stuff, but it works without issue. stock brake pedal. I reckon it'll work fine with those mounts

    Signing in.

    My first ever Doctor! Had many many enduro bikes been riding since i was a kid but I’ve finally got myself a chick magnet, and she’s mint!

    Does anyone know the possibility of fitting a 2010 yz450f front end to it. Ive got the whole setup, wheel, kyb sss forks, brakes triple clamps everything.

    Its got racetech gold valves and springs so I’ll give it a chance before i do anything drastic anyway it might good for the kind adv riding i want to do.

    Can anyone recommend the bar risers that lift the bars up and forward ? It has risers but they come back at me.

    Won't be bolt on, but could be done. You need to consider things like travel, ride height, offset/trail, a lesser brake, steering stops and head bearings. I've done WP, Showa and DRZ fork conversions FWIW. In each case I adapted the stock DR wheel and upgraded to a 320 disc. If you raise the front, then raise the rear with a shock and 18" rim. All doable, and entertaining in the shed, especially if you have a lathe, hammer, grinder, welder etc.
