Thanks for the kind words. I'm glad the mods and your trip went smoothly.

As you mentioned, the loose pin fit make the pegs droop forward slightly. I machined a couple brass bushings and pressed them into the peg holes, taking up the slack between the pin and the large holes in the pegs.

Now go to Atlanta Triumph - Ducati and get an Off-road Pipe. You'll love it.

Stretch,
Did you ever do anything to sharpen the grip? Or, are you just happy with the Buell pegs the way they came?

I've been meaning to, but haven't done anything yet.

My plan is to sharpen the ends of a couple dozen small diameter setscrews, drill and tap the foot pegs to that size, and Loc-Tite them in place to give each peg a dozen or so little steel spikes to hold on to my feetses.

I was thinking about doing some nasty things with a triangle file. That is if they fit on my steamer, of course.

Yeah, but gritty feets on aluminum teefes will round off the points pretty quickly.

It all works out

This is the cool world that us Uly owners live in. We (I) replace our stock pegs for what ever reason with another alternative.
And now we have Tiger guys wanting our pegs because they work good on them.
So we can recycle good parts instead of tossing them or putting them on a shelf.
I sold my Uly pegs in 1 hour in flea market.

Tiger guys, Enjoy !!!

Oh Yea, I have ridden a Tiger, Cool ride. I liked it.

My local Buell dealer has a 60 day backorder on the uly pegs. He ordered a set last December just to have some in stock and nothing yet.

The latest upgrade...


#6-32 x 3/8" stainless steel socket setscrews, cone point, set with blue Loc-Tite.

McMaster-Carr Part Number: 92785A146 $5.64 per Pack of 25. Needing 54 setscrews, I bought three packs.

Yes, that was a hell of a lot of drilling and tapping.

Pressed for time, and owning the new Uly only two days before departing on a one week trip (2,200 miles) that showed me the hardest rain I have ever ridden in, I took a dremel tool with diamond tip to the stock Uly pegs to roughen them. It took me about a half hour, total to do both pegs, and it worked great. The polished finish on stock Uly pegs turned into decently grippy pegs and currently, I don't feel like I need to modify further. If you own a dremel tool, it is free. I didn't lose the extra 1" by changing to Touratech pegs and so far, I am pleased. Looking at them, it is hard to tell that anything is diffent, but feel wise, it is a great solution.

I thought about sharpening the teeth (it was even mentioned earlier on this thread), but I felt that aluminum teefes would grow dull and slick over time, so I went with the stainless screws for longevity.

The 2009 Uly is allegedly equipped with a more aggressive surface on the pegs, but a look at the 2009 models on the Buell website merely shows the previous pegs Photoshopped black...



We shall see.

(repeat of an earlier post by me from another thread)

I got a chance to check out the footpegs on an 09 last weekend. I didn't sit on the bikes, but an 08XT and 09XT were parked side-by-side so I could easily compare the pegs A/B to see the differences. At first glance the footpegs look identical, but IMHO the 09's are definitely grippier. The small "blocks" that make up the surface of the peg are slightly sharper and there seems to be slightly more space between them. I think the blocks are actually taller, and since they're slightly tapered this produces this effect.

They're also coated in what seems to be anti-slip paint (like used on boat decks and stairs) which is pretty grippy itself.

Overall, I'd say they're a significant improvement.

Ooohh ooucch! But what about those quick trips in the summer to the market when I like to ride in just a pair of cut-offs and barefeet?!?

Actually they look like some sort of anti-theft device!

Nice work, though, really.
