SW-MOTECH Footpegs Review
I am 6’5 and while riding off-road and standing on the pegs, even with a ROX risers, and the handle bars adjusted to the highest possible position, I can not reach the handle bars as comfortable as a shorter person would (apparently size does matter).
- Easy installation…basically take the stock foot pegs off by removing the horseshoe clip and remove the stock page and spring. Than place the SW-MOTECH Footpegs bracket in the stock mounting, re-instal the spring, and put back the horseshoe clip..than just bolt the actual pegs to the bracket (don’t forget lock-tight)…all of 10 minutes on both sides.
- The SW-MOTECH Footpegs really make a difference in the way I feel while riding off-road and standing on the pegs. I still have to bend a little, but I do feel the difference in how much I had to bend with the stock pegs, vs. these ones, and I do feel like I have better control while standing on these vs. the stock pegs.
- This is more of a nuisance than bad…with the stock pegs I could put my foot very far toward the inside (closest to the bike) and have the whole width of my foot supported. The SW-MOTECH bracket is constructed in a way that makes it slightly higher than the actual foot-rest part of the peg, which means that I can not have my feet as close to the bike as I am used to with the stock pegs, and it does not really allows me to have the full width of my foot/boot on the peg. It takes a little getting used too to be able to stand comfortably.
Will I buy them again?…probably maybe (I am very decisive when it comes to questions like this). I do like the fact that they are lower than stock, but for over $150, getting only 3/4 of an inch lower, plus the fact that they do not cover the whole width of my foot…I don’t know, it’s a 50/50.
