Any other foot pegs available?

Recommended Posts

I am quickly grinding away the pegs on my 150, are there any aftermarket options?

I did a search and saw that TOAST :cry: has some Fastways on his bike but being I am grinding them away that is a pricey option. Any others?

I haven't heard about the RM80 ones so I'll have to look into that, but do your homework. They make pegs for the CRF230, but the CRF150 has different pegs.

To date, I haven't been able to find any and I've looked everywhere. The difference on the 150 pegs is that they are taller then the 230 ones. When it comes to peg height, I want more. Going to a 230 height would not do well.

I am riding the bike in SuperMoto trim on pavement and I am grinding them down when they drag sliding the bike into a corner. I can get some pretty cool lean angles out of the bike when the rear steps out and I get the inside hand grip below the top of my boot.:cry: The outside of the left peg is ground about half way to the teeth, and the right one is a quarter of the way.:cry: In only my first 2 weeks owning the bike.

I have been doing some more looking and thinking about this problem and I think I will just get another set of stock pegs, but mount some swingarm sliders for the rear stand spools from a sport bike to the bottom of the cross bar built into the peg. Then I will just trash some nylon sliders and not the pegs.:cry:

I'm in the process of having supermoto footpeg sliders made for Fastway footpegs. Assuming the design works, we'll eventually put them into production.

I was hoping to have prototypes made this month, but the priority list has pushed those probably to March.

If you're still fighting the problem in a month or so, drop me a PM and maybe I'll have a solution for you.

BTW, the Fastway Application guide lists their CRF 150/230 part number as being the same for the Yamaha PWs and TTR 225, so that may be another option.

HTH,

just a question... ive noticed many people race the crf150 in supermoto. why is this. like on oln and stuff they sometimes show like a jr class with like 12-14 year olds. so why do so many people use this bike for this. just wondering what makes it such a good supermoto bike :cry:

There are several reasons why the CRF150 makes a popular SuperMoto bike.

- Stock it is the closest thing to being the max displacement (160cc) allowed in most clubs Mini-SM class, which minimizes the need for big-bore kits and other things to add power.

- The stock suspension is a notch above what you find on the rest of the 100-125cc bikes (CRF/XR-100, TTR125, DRZ/KLX125), it still needs a little help but compared to a TTR for example the forks flex less.

- For the OLN stuff, the Honda Riders Club of America (HRCA) puts up most of the $$$ to support The Red Rider Jr SuperMoto Series.

- For me personally I am 6'4" tall and the frame on a CRF150 is taller and the seat to peg distance is larger so it just fits me better.

The other thing that makes the CRF 150 popular is that it's a good bike to learn SM on. It's got enough power to break traction, slide, and such; but it's not so much power that it wants to get away from you.

For many people I know, once they get the techniques down and start riding a big bike, they start to miss riding the 150... When it comes down to it, it's often more fun to ride a slow bike fast, than to ride a fast bike slow (me on my 525 MXC is a good example of the latter :cry: ).

And besides, if you already have the bike and are going to be at the track, why not ride a couple more (really fun) classes.

Yeah, it would be nice to have a new set of foot pegs.. stock stuff pretty much sucks. but that is just my opinion, if pro-design made some it that would be great :) but i dought thats going to happen. I hope more companies start making parts for these 230f's. :)

      So I want to fit a Speedo to my stock Honda CRF230F, I know people have fitted the Trail Tech endurance to them but they are a bit pricey so my questions are is there another reliable Speedo or is my best choice to bite the bullet and get the Endurance? My other question is the stock stator for the CRF230F enough to power a Speedo or more specifically a trail tech endurance 2? I fully capable of installing it and splicing the wiring, my question is just can the stock bike support it? Also the Bike does not have a headlight.

      I am in the process of slowly repairing everything on my 230 that had been bought from a farmer and obviously had no love ever in its life. Anyway, as I pull off one thing, fix it, reinstall it and then ride around again, I keep coming back to it not being the most aesthetically pleasing 230 on the planet. I was wondering if anyone has suggestions for sticker kits leave 'em below.
      FYI: I would like to keep it as stock looking as possible maybe even use the sticker kits from the last couple years of motorbike.

      I hate finding awesome deals, but not able to make it happen! 
      I found a complete '05 crf150f that I would love to get for the gf and get running. He wants $400 obo. It's a 7 hour drive though. I would have no problem making the drive normally, but even if he'd take $300-350, it would still cost me about $150 in gas. I can't really justify spending the money at this point in time and that sucks balls! 
      I just had to rant for a moment

      Hey guys, 
      Just  finished my xr and wanted to share some pictures with what I done. I have read a lot of posts on suspension for the xr, so I’ll share my mods.I got a set of dnm hornet forks from my wife on my birthday. With a new front I had to do a conversion on the back-so I went with a Crf150f swing arm that got off eBay. After some machine work in a Bridgeport mill removing 5/8 off each side it fit. I removed extra 1/4 inch to allow for chain alignment so it could be shimmed. The  frame was over drilled to 14mm and had to shorten the bolt by removing the bolt head and re-weld a nut to the stud. The shock is temporary until I figure linkage or direct mount but for now it’s a 11 inch fast ace 1100 lbs with adjustable rebound. Also for ease of service I drilled and taped the swinger and shock pivots with 6mm zerks. The wheels are the stock Crf150f and installed Ebc slotted brake pads. 
      The DNM front forks were a challenge as no bearing combination would work with the 41mm race. I used a set of roller taper stock bearings and shimmed the bearing to the triple stem. Brake caliper had to be modified with a new bracket to use the 240 rotor. Also I have yet to find information to support these forks so if anyone has information on these please let me know.. 
      35inch seat height
      as for the rest of the build the motor has a engines only 120 kit with cam and slotted cam sprocket and mikuni tm24 carb. Shower head and oil pump by Daytona and alto red eagle clutch with bbr springs and a hydraulic clutch. Cdi and coil, new seals. installed a bbr  cradle with engines only aluminum front mounts. Had to remove 2mm off the engine and frame dowels to get these to work together. A new seat cover and foam with a clean up on the plastic. Let me know what you think. Thanks
