Aftermarket foot pegs

What's the choice? Fastaway, PivotPegz, Touratech "Front-relocated", Touratech "Rear-relocated", any others?

Any personal experiences or views on which worked for you and why on the F800GS.

I'm really happy with my PivotPegz. They offer a big, secure platform for my boots, can be mounted so that they're slightly lower than the stock pegs, and the pivoting action makes it a whole lot easier to shift and brake when wearing stiff, dirt-oriented boots like Sidi Discoveries. I haven't tried any of the others, but haven't felt the need to either.

footpegs

I started out with Pivotpegs.

Took them off after six months, and put on the Wunderlich "lowered" pegs. I've got a 34-inch inseam, and it made a huge difference!

How are the PivotPegz in size compared to the original BMWs?

Fastways for me

I bought the Fastways. They're reported to knock the kickstand spring peg off if you fall wrong on the left side...so I've always fallen to the right I mounted them in the low position and am very happy with them.

I wanted Roc Stompas, but they were out of stock and out of the country and I needed something wide to give my arches some reprieve on a long trip.

Thought about the PivotPegz, but my Achilles tendons bother me enough as it is, and I figured I didn't need the extra flexion exacerbating an already painful condition.

With the rubber inserts removed, the BMW footpegs are roughly 40mm x 70mm. The PivotPegs are roughly 50mm x 85mm.

Another satisfied Pivot Pegz customer! Have them on my 800 and had them on my 1200Adventure.

Won't leave home without them.

Aftermarket Footpegs F800GS

G'day all,
I'm looking to replace the standard footpegs on my F8 to something that is the same height but wider, any suggestions, advice, thoughts or recommendations?

There might be a few suggestions in the Aftermarket foot pegs thread!

Thanks for the link, lots of recommendations for PivotPegz and Fastways, I've tried both on various bikes over the last few years and don't like either. I'm looking for alternatives, anybody had experience with Touratech extended pegs or RocStompa? Any others I don't know about?

I'm using the TT extended/adjustable footpegs. Allows the peg position to move forward and downward....much more comfortable. The wider length (to the sides) is a plus too. They work great. Only issue I've had is bending one forward after dropping the bike.....she flamed out on an off-camber turn (aaarrgh). I was able to beat it back into normal position using a big rock.

I also put on the Wunderlich adjustable shift lever to go with these pegs. Love that thing, its a really fine piece.

I gained a little more brake room by loosening and dropping the plunger but a few FF's have been successful in fabricating/welding a tab to drop the brake arm. Haven't seen any recent posts on the subject. I'm surprised TT or someone similar hasn't created a bolt on solution yet.
