KTM 690 Enduro - Help installing Fastway Adventure Footpegs

Hi all,

I am having trouble installing the Fastway Adventure Footpegs from Cyclebuy on my '13 KTM 690 Enduro R. They ask on the order which bike you have so I made it clear the make and model. I'd also like to add I am probably the most useless person mechanically so it may already be super obvious!

As for the pics, I didn't realise how huge they are but it will probably help to see the problem. Basically when I try place the footpeg into the slot of the previous footpeg, it doesn't fully go in, the only way to make it fit is to twist the peg up in a ridiculous angle. So before I go ahead and grind away at my bike to make room for it, has anyone had this problem before? Or do I have to grind out a slot for it to fit in properly? (you can see in the last pic, its that round thing on the mount part below the bolt that is the cause)








Cheers!

I used an angle grinder and dremel to make mine fit. I ground mainly the mount, but also relieved it bit from the footpeg. No negative effects thus far.

Cheers for reply man, I ended up going the same way cos I couldn't be bothered waiting for replies lol, except mine kind of went to shit. Got my flatmate to grind the mount back a bit but he ended up grinding it too much. The pegs now fit, except now they don't stop at 90 parallel to the bike, they stop 1mm further on the mount which angles the pegs forward slightly.

Pain in the ass, will just get some rubber stoppers to bring it back into position, or go to a workshop and get an aluminum welder to put a couple of blobs on the mount to bring pegs back to the correct position.

God damn flatmate is a qualified "Mechanical Engineer" too, amateur hour

Sounds like you already got them to fit with a little help from a grinder.

I have used the very same pair of Fastway pegs on three bikes now. And as you have already discovered, fitting them takes 10 minutes of CAREFUL grinding with a Dremel Tool.

Sorry to hear the roomie got a little crazy with the grinder.

Once you've ridden a bike with big honkin footpegs, you'll never go back to the stock size.

For future reference, I'll post up a few pics if anyone wants.

Dirty

I'll snap a few photos as well as the orientation of the cutting disk for the metal removal on the peg mounts after I get my devotional completed.

Good to see you got it sorted most way. I left in the adjuster bolt screwed all the way in and keep a slight upward cant to the outside. It seems to keep my boots on the pegs better tilting them in a bit.
I would also install bolts instead of those ziptys for your pannier racks.
No good will come of that fastening when they break.

It's a pretty straight forward fit. You're trying to remove metal so that the peg can fit into the foot peg cavity. It'll take a good bit of dry fitting of the peg and pivot before the spring is added to the mix.

Having the right grinding tools is important. I used a fiber cutting tool held in the same orientation as the peg pivot shown in one of the photos.

Then in the cavity where the spring is close to the back portion of the cavity, the other grinding tool is used to hollow out the cavity a bit more.

Patience, using the right tools, and lots of dry fitting to get a visual on where metal must be removed to make sure the pegs fit properly and tilt on their pivot is what is needed.

Don't ever let your roommate grind on your motorcycle ever again. He should have his grinder privileges taken away.

Here you go:

My name may be Fake, but my gratitude for this thread is not. Just set up a set of these, and appreciate the guidance.

I'd post pics of the work, but I'm not very good with a camera, and Dirty's images are perfectly fine.

Thanks.
