GSW Footpegs

Starting to look around for some better foot pegs. What do you guys have? Likes, dislikes, vendors? I've seen a few and am curious what your experiences have been. Fastway, Black Dog, BMW, SW Motech, Moose, Touratech….

Lots to choose from and I didn't find a dedicated thread when I searched. Interested in options and opinions.

The stock pegs are just too small for a larger foot. Rubber inserts that come out for off road and in for street are a bonus...

I had the BMW Gilles pegs on my last LC, but have gone back to pivot Pegz on the new bike, as I prefer them..

The question I have is considering what BMW supplies as stock pegs why do they even bother shipping the bike with pegs?

If you're just heading to Starbucks, they are adequate...

Adequate for the Starfucks lover to check out the bike and say to them self, "look at those foot pegs. What a douche." Oh the irony!

That's my issue with them. They are sized for small children and the rubber quickly gets torn up. Garbage. Anyone else have any thoughts. Leaning towards the SW Motech pegs.

I disagree. Not everybody rides with offroad boots. For road boots, the stock pegs are perfectly adequate.

They'd be a lot better if only marginally wider, at least I think so.

SW Motech, nice and wide and can be lowered. Best part is that they are cheap as. AU $159 a set. I love mine, so comfortable to stand on compared to the skinny OEM footpegs.

I reused the Pivot Pegs off the old GS. They are very comfortable both on and off road but I did find I had to buy an adjustable gear leaver as the stock one was a bit tight when wearing size 11 BMW All round boots.

Pivot Pegz
