Thanks for the pics.
My springs are different than yours.
Did your kit come with new springs?
There is no way my original springs will fit!

Don't recall that mine came with springs. Think that I needed to use OEM ones. Maybe the difference is that I have a GS and you a GSA?

What a dickhead I am!
I did have fastaway pegs on my bike and they came with springs.
I tried to install the SW Motech with the Fastaway peg springs .......
Found my original springs and all fits fine.
Thanks for the pics , helped me see what I did wrong.

anytime

Well for those coming after this thread once we two are long gone, why did you change from fastway to SW-Motech? Plus/Cons in comparison?

Well I snapped my kick stand spring retainer with the fastaways and I thought after it cost $300 to replace I did not want it to happen again.
Apart from that they are a great peg that's for sure.
Will report back on the SW Motechs as I ride with them.

Would either of you guys mind giving me some true measurements of the peg platform? TT's site says 2x3, but that seems small compared to the pics of them.

here you go:



8cm = 3.15 inches


5.8cms = ~2.30 inches

You guys diggin' the grip level w/o the rubbers in?

Quite nice indeed. Compared to stock night and day, especially since they are lower. more grip surface and really stable. One of the mods I'll always do from now on on every new bike I'll buy. My friend who owns a Transalp was so impressed that he bought a pair for his bike.

Can anyone help me with a close up photo of the LH side peg mount.
My peg bounces up and down with no spring tension but I have the spring still there.
I'm not sure if something is missing .
Thanks in advance

Do you like the SW over the fastway? I have the SW but I don't really care for the adapter pushing the pegs out so far. They also make manipulating the kickstand difficult.

My SW pegs broke my kickstand spring return as well but I was able to fix it by threading the remaining hole and putting a screw in there. It even looks factory bc I used a bmw windscreen screw.

I like the SW pegs just as much as the fastways.
Standing they do foul on you legs a bit but that is a sacrifice for having large footpegs !
