Wider footpegs. nice? or not much dif?

Recommended Posts

If you're talking about the stock pegs for the bike in your sig, yes, you will notice a big difference. Wider pegs make a more comfortable platform to stand on, spread out impact from big hits, and keep your feet planted in sloppy conditions.

Yes, by all means they're worth it. I have the Fastway pegs and the wider platform give you a better feel. The biggest difference is when you come up short on a jump, I've bruised my instep from coming up short on a double with small pegs. The wider platform distributes the hit across a larger area of your foot.

My XR footpegs suck. My brother just got a YZ250 which has huge footpegs, and what a difference! If I keep the XR I'll have to get better ones.

Really depends on the bike. I've actually been kind of happy with the stock YZ pegs over the past couple years, but when I picked up my XR650R, I was like "What the Hell!" I was honestly kind of afraid of riding the thing at first. Switched them out to IMS's and let me tell ya.....all the difference in the world :cry:

They made a big differnce for me,I put IMS superstock on my pig :cry:

That's what he's got. $69 + $9 shipping. Looks like a pretty good deal. Plus non of the other makers even have one for my XR.

Thanks guys

I like wider pegs. Put them on a priority list, not necessary fo rhtem to be the first thing to buy. Definitely one of the things to get.

Older bikes had smaller footpegs, so you'll definitely notice the upgrade. Newer bikes have gradually gotten bigger pegs, so the upgrade won't be as noticeable or as useful.

There may be other reasons to get aftermarket pegs. Some of the aftermarket pegs have sharper teeth, so your boots don't slip off (the IMS pegs have nice teeth to grab your boots). Some clear dirt and mud much better that the stock pegs (my Honda CRF250X pegs like to collect mud). Some are adjustable for angle and height (Fastway pegs).

Wide pegs weren't that big a deal until I got some. Now I prefer not to be without them. Went with Fastways for the adjustability.

I put IMS on my XR and loved them (bent the stock ones), my CRF came with a little bigger stock pegs which have been ok so far. The IMS were great when bouncing around on rocky trails, my feet never slipped off the pegs. :cry:

IMS Pro-series on my XR and I will never go back (much more stable platform).

$1,000.00 in upgrades to my wife's TTR125LE. The only thing she talks about is how much she likes the IMS pegs I put on her bike.
