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?

My girlfriend said the same. So here's what I did.




I have brush guards on my 1999 KLR 650 that I mount Dirt-Bagz saddle bags to and they stick out about an inch. So she asked me to extend the foot pegs out about an inch. The mounting point for the front pegs (.975") are are a different size than the passenger pegs (.755") so it's a bit difficult to just buy pegs from a catalog as they only list front pegs.



My first idea was to buy extra front klr peg mounts and weld the bracket on to the passenger peg mount. But I like that the passenger pegs retract and stay up then not in use unlike the front pegs that have a spring them to keep the down all the time.



Another solution may be to use SW-Motech foot pegs and order the correct a hinge adapter and add spacer between the adapter and foot peg. But the pegs are $175 and I would still need to fabricate a spacer. Here's a blog post by Lawritz Mann (http://klr650adventures.blogspot.com...foot-pegs.html) and the pdf instructions for installing the pegs (http://static.twisted-throttle.net/m...11_10200_s.pdf) .





My solution was to buy "Moto Solution foot Peg Wideners" $27 on Ebay and weld them to the stock passenger peg. They come with a 1.2" ID. The rubber on the peg and a ringed washer press against the mounting bracket to hold the peg in place. So I wanted to retain a bit of the rubber on the peg. I cut the rubber off at the second line on the stock peg which established peg wideners are mounted and made the pegs 1 1/4" wider.



Hope it helps.

Pretty neat, and reasonably cheap, too ... Lisa will be happy, I predict!

see you around the campfire,

It turned out that I just went to the hardware store and bought some spacers and longer mounting bolts to move the pegs out. The spacers moved the entire foot peg bracket outward along with the pegs. The brackets are now on the outside of the guards. the spacers fill the void where the brackets once were. It was so simple that I wondered why it took me so long to come up with it.
