Footpeg Extensions

Saw these on the Zip-Ty Web site. They look well made, lots of room to move your feet around. Their # is 760-244-7028

I have the ZipTy's on my SE, CJ's were on my ADV. I prefer CJ's. The ZipTy's are too wide I like to pivot my foot more than they allow. Just my opinion.

Lots of different types out there. I have the CJDesigns Peg extensions and they are excellent. And CJ is an active member here as well.

+1 for CJ's.

Got in some crazy New Mexico mud...bike had no traction but my feet stayed on the pegs the whole time. One of the most noticeable upgrades as far as comfort goes too imo.

I made my own and then made a batch for the guys around here.

Simply thoothed strips laser cut out of 1/8 stainless sheet that I bent and welded together.





Can easily be done by anyone handy with a grinder and a welding machine.

Not as bling as CJ's ones but they're cheaper to manufacture and they get the job done.

Zipty Extension

The only drawback that I have seen with my ZipTy extensions is with the distance it adds from the heel of your boot to the brake pedal or the shifter.

I am used to butting the heel of my boot up against the rear of the foot peg while standing. In the seated position it's not such a problem. With the ZipTy's installed I have an issue reaching either control. My guess is with different boots, bigger feet and a variety of other variables this wouldn't be an issue.

Just my 2 cents.

ps - Not an issue with my motocross boots, just my Sidi's, and I'll continue to use them as they feel like floor boards in comparison to the stock pegs.

Very nice

I built mine with a drill, hacksaw and a few files. Mine don't stand up to close up photography. Mind you they are not rough, hours of careful measuring and filing work and they look pretty good from the usual distance, but they wouldn't qualify as motorcycle bling as these ones do. Nice job.

Black Dog cycle works makes a very nice extended footpeg (full peg replacement) that is verry nice. Love it! Sticky, yet easy to move around on, and provides a nice, comfortable platform standing or sitting. I like the fact that they're one piece.

I had a similar issue (as I don't have size 14 feet) remedied it by switching sides with the Zip Ties. Now the curve is to the front and it shifts my body weight a couple of inches forward while standing. Seems to work well for me. People are always asking me " you know those are backwards, right?"

trade?

I have black zip-ty and like them very much, they do feel like floorboards! The fact they were developed by Ty Davis himself probably has something to do with it.
Having said that I am ready to try something different. Anyone wants to trade with me? My footpegs for yours????
