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've been pretty happy with my Precision Engineering pegs. They have a nice big foot perch but they're nothing fancy. What really appealed to me about them was the drop offset for ergos more than bling but I'm pleased with them so far.

Haven't tried any other brands - haven't felt the need to change out the PE's.

G'day all,
OK, so I've spent the best part of 2 days researching footpegs for the F8 and it looks like it's going to have to be Fastways F5's. Those of you who have them fitted to the F8, can you tell me if they are the same height as the standard F8 pegs when fitted at their high position. Any advice on this would be appreciated.

I use the PivotPegz M3's with a TT extendable gear lever, I found fastways cut up my boots too fast on the sole.

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.

Agreed! i just got my Precision Engineering 2" drop pegs yesterday & stuck them on the bike. Definitely nothing fancy, but well machined and make a world of difference in the ergos..
I went with the TT adjustable shift lever as well, but I'm really concerned about the brake pedal position.. With these pegs on, the brake pedal is clearly above the pegs.. which makes braking pretty awkward not just when standing but sitting as well..

So I'm curious, Lounge, what your experience with this has been, and to everyone else, what's the best solution to lower that bitch back down so I can reach it without lifting my foot?

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.

Has anybody put highway pegs on their SW-Motech crash bars? Pics and/or recommendations please.

Very happy with my PivotPegz Mk.3 except that, as they lower the footrest slightly, my right foot now rests on the rear brake when standing. Anyone got a 'fix' for lowering or replacing the pedal on the rear brake lever?

Laugh Pivot pegz +1

I've got the MK3 Pivot Pegz and love em.

I use SIDI Crossfire boots, on which the gear lever area is very stiff; it made shifting a hassle.
I fitted a Wunderlich adjustable length "roller" shifter, which helped a bit, especially with extending the length.
But its even easier with the pivot pegz and feels more stable when standing up (They are a huge 60 mm wide).

I'd recommend them to anyone.

Pivot Pegz and TT shift in action

Took some footage...to see what was going on down at the shifter / pegs. So I clipped the Contour on the crashbars for a look see. Finding the passenger pegs handy for those slight uphill climbs, more so for a left foot stabilizer, which seems to ease my back while i try and stay over the front. It would be nice to try the grippy TT rear pegs so i don't slip after water crossings, even better if PivotPegs made a pivot version. *ah yes, I did customize the shifter - a nap during a stop will not help much for the nifty shifter, it does work better when there is motion behind it. - size 9 Sidi

I'm using a set of Moose Racing Hybrid pegs and am very satisfied with them. With an MSRP of only $99.95, they're a real bargain too!

To all you folks out there who have replaced your footpegs, did you run into any problems with the mystery "shim" in the right side footpeg bracket? I'm installing a set of the new sw-motec pegs from Twisted Throttle and I'm having some issues with locating the return spring on the right side. Thanks!
