I am looking to buy some adventure style, replacement foot pegs to put on my V. Initial research led me to IMS ($90) and Sunline ($90-100), both with stainless steel, knobbed pegs. Does anyone have experience with these? Any other recommendations?
Buell pegs will work. The firebolt/lightning ones are around the same size as the V's but have around and inch drop. The Uly pegs are nice wide ones.
All I had to do was drill out the bolt holes a touch and they fit right on. The Uly pegs used to be about 40 a pair but it seems like they are pretty universally used as a drop peg for a lot of bikes. They are now 90 a pair.
Neat idea, but $150.00!? yikes! I almost choked on the 70 dollars I spent on the moose racing titanium pegs I adapted for my bike. Nice that they are making some especially for the V so the guys without tools can get something to fit. Just a little rich for my blood.
It seems that the drop on the Buell pegs is approx. 2 in. ? is that a WAG or fairly precise? Besides drilling the holes are there any other mods for their install? We know Speedy's is 1.3 in. and a perfect fit, but is it enough comfort stretch for someone barely 5' 10" ? The answer to some or all of these questions as always, greatly appreciated. cheers, FG
just picked up the TwistedThrottle set with removable rubber pads, mounting this week end. (yes~ expensive) If there not low enough I plan on going to MotoWerk again for AWESOME parts and service, besides I have to have a hi~way foot peg set up too, any suggestions for the foot peg itself?

I had a set of DR650 pegs that were on my KLR till I sold it. I was going to sell them, then had the idea to try them on my '09. They fit and work GREAT! The bolt holding them on my KLR was a 3/8", while our V pegs use a 12mm one. VERY little difference between sizes, so I installed them with the 3/8 bolt instead of drilling them out.
