Are aftermarket foot pegs worth the investment?

Recommended Posts

YES!! Fastway lowboy pegs work great especially if you have big feet and you are tall.

The only aftermarket pegs I've ever had were the fastways. I liked the fact that they were wide and mud didn't cake up in them but I found that my feet would slip off a lot easier than the stockers. I had the pressed in pegs vs. the allen head adjustable ones but I've heard of the adjustable ones allen heads getting wore down.

Just the fact that my feet slipped off turned me off from using them.

investment, no. I would stick to real estate or bonds. I didn't see any financial return on any of the pegs I bought.

I've had the Fastways for a while now and really like them. I'm a big guy with size 12's and I feel way more secure with them, so it gives me at least a perception of more control and therefore more fun riding. Why else would you spend the dough?!

If you like the height of the stock pegs, sharpen the spikes with a file or die grinder for more grip. Cheap upgrade. 😢

I got wider pegs primarly because I shattered a leg both tibia and fibula went out the side,so more square inches equals more support,and they are great.

I ran Pro-Circuit pegs on my CR500's for years and they were great. Not sure about their newer offerings though.

I've also used Works Connections peg wideners in the past with great results. They used to be around $25-$30 and you just weld them on.

The primary benefits I saw were more foot support and less wear/tear on your boots.

Here's another vote for Fastways. They are wider and lower which is great but they also can be adjusted so the ends tilt up a little which helps me keep my knees pinned where they should be, on the tank!!!!! 😢

I transfered my Fastways from my 02 to my 05. I love them. Probably one of the few things I will end up doing to my 05.

I love my fastways cause they feel like platforms that im standing on. I have the adjustable ones to. So the outside rows are taller than the inside so my foot kinda sinks in the peg.

If you wear Sidi's or any boot with screws in the bottom, you can plan on having those pins worn down to nubs if you don't watch em. I just put the tall ones on after taking the short pins out with vise grips. Some are permanently fused to the peg. Other than that it was a great mod.
