Review: KLR 650 Pegs

During my last ride I put my foot down in a puddle. When I took off again, I felt my foot move about on the peg. Not a good feeling. Afterwards, during cleaning, I could move the rubber cover at the sides. Not good.

Looking for something to substitute the OEM pegs with, I found the Kawasaki KLR 650 pegs.

Very easy installation, a bit of WD40 at the hinge, pull out the retainer washer with a pair of pliers, push/tap out the pin, reinstall. I wasn't going to keep the spring, but I tried it on and it worked! The OEM pegs have a hole for the spring, but the KLR's don't. Still, it works!




Bought these off www.d2moto.com. Use "D2M2008" for 15% discount, that makes the pegs 12.71US. Shipping (to Belgium) was 14.31US, got them 7 days after payment. Not bad!

Item = Honda XR 50 70 80 100 / Kawasaki KLR 650 Foot Pegs SKU : FP008

Did it, like it....

Size comparison...with Carney Hands and Camera Strap thrown in for free...



Mounted...



Testing.....



Verdict- Like em alot off road and in the woods, not bad around town cruising, for the long rides 500-1000 miles they vibrate too much and my feet go numb, but that is what highway pegs are for....

+1 !!!

The stock vstrom pegs are the same part# as the stock GSXR pegs. They don't belong on an adventure bike, imho.

If anyone else is reading this and are looking for a less agressive cleat pattern than above, I put stock DR650 pegs on my wee and found them to be perfect.
They fit (provided you buy the springs as well),
only cost $23 for everything at your local suzuki dealer,
they're black so it makes the bike look proper, and
They're steel!!!, so if you land on them off-road, they bend, and you can just hammer (use a rock? ) them back in to shape if needed.

Regards,
Johnny007

Pivot Pegz are another nice option ...

I bought these for my Wee, and absolutely love 'em. While they are great for off-road riding, an unexpected benefit is how easy it becomes to accommodate different footwear by simply rotating your leg forward or backward.

Definitely cost more than the other items recommended here, but a really, really nice product:

They say they won't have stock for two or three months. Anyone know of another supplier?

wondering something. there is talk of the klr & dr pegs both working, however if i remember correctly there was a pin size difference between those 2 bikes.

the klr used a thinner pin i believe than the dr.
so does the klr peg on the strom have play because of the thinner pin or does the strom use the thinner pin (like a klr)???

well since i have both a dr and a wee i went out and measured the peg pin diam. the dr is widder at 10mm whereas the wee is 8mm. this then would make sense the wee uses the klr pegs as these are drilled for 8mm peg pins, which i assume is what a stock klr pin size is.

a stock dr or d2moto dr peg would fit on a wee however there would be some slop because the peg holes (for the pin) are 2mm oversized. i doubt the slop would even be noticed at the peg is put in a forced down position by your feet. this would be a free peg upgrade if you had some stock dr pegs lying around or wanted a grippier metal peg on your strom but didn't want to go with the wide d2moto option (as the stock dr pegs are narrower)

Lovin' the Pivot Pegs

I just installed a set of the newest version of Pivot Pegz on my KLR and love them. Installation took maybe 3 minutes per peg (and I used the stock pegs to replace the cheesy highway pegs). I picked them up at Touratech here in Seattle. The cost was instantly affordable when I compare them to riding with the stock pegs. Also, the pivoting action is extra beneficial for getting my size 13 toe under the shifter.

Just FYI, I put on a set of DR 650 pegs on my KLR 650 - perfect fit.
