dirt bike footpegs on Buell?

Ive searched a bit (seems like everyone is trying to put Buell pegs on other bikes) but have yet to see someone mount Dirtbike style pegs on a Buell.

Has anyone here found something that fits? I have seen the ones from Precision Engineering and TT, but I was hoping for some other options.

The stock Uly pegs are solid & the grime / mud soon render them inadequate. I drilled mine & added screws, but fundamental problem remains. Switched to Precision Engineering pegs - a bit tough on the shifting side boot sole - but love the grip in all conditions. (I used some emory cloth and blunted the sharp points - still work great - but a bit less 'toothy')

uly pegs fit the strom & dr650 so it should go the other way.

I have the Precision Engineering pegs on my Uly. I love them. No slipping, regardless of what sort of nastiness I get into, and that can be pretty nasty sometimes.

Here are a couple of pics.

Sky, with the new pegs does it effect shifting and breaking reach or is it the same as stock?

I do need to raise the brake lever, but that has as much to do with stiff boots and standing as the pegs. When I am sitting, the brake pedal is just fine.

Truly, the only "problem" that I have with the PE pegs is that they are hard on the soles of my boots. They are comfortably wide and flat, provide unfailing grip and do not get clogged no matter what kind of nastiness I have stuck to my boots.

Thumb Touratech foot pegs

I have the Touratech pegs on my bike. I am very happy with them and they still utilize the Buell detents to hold the pegs.
