footpegs...

so.... dumped 'er on the hill climb & busted the right footpeg. whats the good replacements, because the OEM are really pretty cheezy. (Gen III if it matters)

if I'm answering your question I assume the basic points have been addressed, such as: did you do a compression test? is it still on fire?

I don't think so. pretty sure the bolt hole on the KLR peg is smaller, and not sure the angles are right either... but I could be wrong. anybody know?

you said hill climb, so I think wide offroad / cleated pegs.
got the 20$ DR650 pegs suggestion from this forum.

with a bolt and nylock. You might enlarge the hole if you can, but that is to difficult for me (drill bit could jam) and the peg could be weakened.

I put the SW-Motech wide on/off road pegs on mine soon after I purchased it. Expensive but I like them.

I run the DR650 pegs on both my V650s, using regular 3/8" bolts rather than drilling anything. They work GREAT [and over MANY miles!]. Here compared w/ stock AND w/ 3/8" bolt/locknut combo on my Gen 1 ('09).







And here in yellow on my Gen 3 ('15):

welp.... they don't fit. 75% miss-match on the holes. as I look back at the pix I see that you did is single shear loaded... not what I had in mind. I also have a lowering kit, so after thinking about, I'm going to mill the peg dropper out to 1/2". on the mill I can move the hole about .020 inboard so as to not lose any metal on the weak side. as for the peg, same, drill to accept tubing. I have 1/2" cro-mo aircraft tube with .058 wall. the I.D. fit is perfect to a 3/8" bolt. I'll probably braze the tube to the peg & it will be a snug slide in fit to the dropper

You're WAY beyond MY capabilities - the BEST I could do was just use the SAE bolt/nut, and it's worked for MANY years for me, tho' as you mention - perhaps it's NOT ideal.

I would add that 10mm bolt fits a tiny bit better than 3/8" (9.5mm) given the DR650 pegs holes are 10mm. Once installed they do slant very slightly forward due to the play in the bike's bracket's hole (12mm) but I have not really felt that on the ankles.

As my picture shows above, to be satisfied, I chose to add spacers on a side of the spring to offset it for better fit. If I ever go back in there, I would probably file a larger peg's hole to fit the 12mm original.

so, plan B... don't remove any material from the (kinda weak, especially in single shear) footpeg dropper, machine the bushing on the lathe to make a light press fit on both the peg and drop. I drilled the steel footpeg to help make the fit. I had 3/8 bolts which are a couple thou loose fit to the ID of the tube stock. good enough until I drop it next time. I expect the lowering block will be next to go & then I'll have to make something better
