Rear Footpeg Position Mod (PICS)

Recommended Posts

Hey All-

Using RedMesa's encyclopedia of modifications to our bikes (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1mEsw891e5HUdLIrq4yYQzm2QCsRgK-ihDkrL_fu7_iA/pub), I came across some drawings for a good foot peg modification. This mod uses an adapter plate and the OEM peg bracket off of a CRF250/450 model. I bought the pins, springs and some aftermarket high-end pegs to complete the process. 

I made my brackets from 304SS per the original design in this thread:

Member Fudalgo provides a drawing somewhere around page 5. I'll be taking her out for a ride tomorrow on the usual trails I ride.

Rode with the new mod yesterday for about 50 miles. WOW. Everyone must do this mod immediately. Transformed the ergonomics and ability to move my weight around efficiently on the bike.

Kool. Adding the YZ pegs/adapters to mine feel really good. How's the peg-to-brake pedal and shift lever feel?

Everyone I ride with who has ridden on of our two 230F's has complained that they can't shift because the space between the peg and shifter on a stock bike is too close. This is with riding boots on.

The new footpeg position totally corrects that problem on the shifter side and makes braking a lot easier as well on the brake side. There are zero compromises with this mod in my opinion.

What size boots do you wear, the distance between pegs and levers look far

I'm a size 8 and it's definitely not too far away for me.

Hey All-

I have five sets available. New price is $85 for two brackets, two M8 screws, and shipping. Send me a PM if you'd like a set. I also have one of the five pairs that I can sell with used brackets and new pins/springs/cotter for $125- you would only have to supply your own foot pegs and you're off and running.

The kit with the peg brackets included is sold. Four left with without brackets. If I sell out of these quickly I will make more, don't worry.

How far back do these brackets move the pegs?  Same height?


Check out the Ramsey write up, very detailed.

I was going to bolt mine on like that until I noticed they would be angled back like that. That's why I welded mine in place so I could adjust for that. But I bet you could do some grinding to remedy this problem. Nice having modern pegs and the right side doesn't stick out and catch roots when cornering hard!

I'm figuring on having to do some very careful and slow grinding to get them perfect.

Also considering modifying the plate on the right side to correct the 3/8" offset that exists according to Ramsey's notes.

"The end result - the footpegs are moved back 1 inch on the left and 5/8 inch on the right and the overall width is reduced 1 inch. Footpegs are about 7/16 inches higher." - http://rickramsey.net/CRF230Ffootpegs.htm

I was thinking about slotting the mounting holes ~ 3/8". Maybe then mill/drill a countersink where the bolt will go to prevent sliding if that's even necessary. Any thoughts on this?

Sounds like you got it figured out! This is the only option if you do not weld or have access to a welder or do not want to weld them for some reason. Personally I like the welding option for ease of getting the pegs straight right out of the gate. But I also have a fully equipped shop at home :) and that 3/8" less that the pegs stick out. He has done a great job machining the adaptors. I like it when someone will offers to the public what they did to there bike!

Sorry, I'm not trying to critique your work at all and no disrespect intended. I think you did a great job on those and it's very much appreciated! There's no way I would even notice 3/8 of an inch in any direction. I just thought it might be fun to mess around with them and correct the offset, however insignificant, after reviewing Ramsey's notes. Guess I'm just trying to mod your mod a little, not saying it's bad. Again, awesome job!
