KLR Passenger Peg Extensions

Anybody know of a good way to make the passenger pegs on a 08+ KLR longer? I have some of those bash gaurds/luggage supports over the rear plastics of my KLR and the g/f cant get her feet on the pegs...

Are there any longer aftermarket pegs i could buy? Anybody make something??

Any info will be appreciated!

I took a quick look at mine and it looks like two possibilities.

1. Add a spacer block behind the foot peg bracket and the frame with longer bolts.

2. Use and extended foot peg that fits in the stock bracket. It might take a little searching to find a drop in extended foot peg, but I ran across several potential options on a quick google search. Most are Harley oriented but some could work.

Here's one potential choice.

Hadnt thought of that. Thanks!

I was hoping that someone has already had this problem and knew which replacement pegs to get, but this sounds almost as easy and even cheaper

Question Thread bump

To the OP, did you find a solution? I have the same problem, possibly due to the gaurds.

On my newly acquired 2009 bike, the pivot point for the passenger foot peg is welded to the mounting bracket. The easiest solution I can see is some longer foot pegs from another motorcycle; all I'd have to do is pull the pivot pin and make the switch.

Anyone know of a inch or so longer foot peg?
