$12 Pegs



So far, so good. Have about 300 miles on the $12 Amazon (YZ) pegs. Lots of dirt, mud and standing. Someone, somewhere else, said they could not be modified to work on the GS. With a little engineering, for now, they work.

I'll bet your BMW peg is the same $12 pegs on my DL650,

Also installed a $17 folding shifter lever tip.

Re: $12 Pegs

I've been wanting to upgrade mine and the wife's pegs for a while. What did you have to modify?

Re: $12 Pegs

There's an "L" shaped piece I had to make to put in the groove of the bracket. The tongue of the peg is shorter than the stock peg so they want to set in a forward position. I cut and drilled and installed the piece then removed the entire bracket and ground the insert to shape.

Those $12 chinese pegs should be worth at least a couple mornings discussion at Starbucks.

Re: $12 Pegs

One of the best mods I did to the Strom. Put them on probably 2 years ago and 20+ thousand miles ago.
