Are there any other XT225 footpeg options out there for people who cannot afford the DMO ones? After exchange, shipping, taxes, etc. I am looking at 100 bucks for DMO footpegs, which I simply cannot afford.

I've tried ebay, and there are a lot of footpegs on there, but there's no way of knowing if they are compatible. I found some that fit the XT250 but not the 225. What's the difference? Why would Yamaha build specific pegs for the 225? Or does the XT225 share pegs with any other models?

I'm not trying to take anything away from the DMO pegs. I am sure they are awesome. Some of us just can't afford to spend 100 bucks on pegs.

Your best bet is probably the weld-on type pegs extensions.


This shall pass, be still and know.

I second peejman's suggestion. The problem is the right-hand peg which is weirdly welded together, perhaps so they (Yamaha) could re-use an existing peg mount. All the aftermarket Ebay offerings I came across were mirror images; that bumps the right peg out maybe 40mm, enough that I think your right foot would no longer be aligned well with the rear brake pedal. Perhaps the brake pedal could be modified/replaced to fix the situation but then.. more expense right?

The right peg has that U shape for the kick starter that makes it almost impossible to fit most pegs on.The TTR225 oddly enough doesn't have the kick start option and you can get pegs that fit the DR250,350 or 650 really cheap($14.89) that fit.I would recommend trying to find some of the DMO's used.I am planning to change out mine to the TTR mounts(with the rear wheel,shifter and brake pedal)eventually and will be selling my DMO's.I actually have all the parts for the conversion but lack the time to get it done.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll have to research that. I don't weld, so I would have to factor that into the cost.

Thanks for the explanation. If I was to do this, I'd probably be inclined to just bend the break pedal 40mm, but I'd rather not implement such a kludge.

Very interesting. So it seems I could simply buy the TTR mount(s) and then this would open up a huge range of footpeg options for me. I can get the TTR mounts for $50CAD (shipped) and then order $15 footpegs and still save some money and end up with way more options in the future. It is still more than I want to spend, but the future flexibility might be worth it.

The question is; do all TTR225 mounts fit all XT225 bikes, or is there a specific year of TTR225 mounts that I need for my 06 XT ?

You also need the TTR shifter http://www.xt225.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=18713&page=1 These are XT footpegs from Japan without the kickstart option. http://www.xt225.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=57205 This is what someone did to get aftermarket pegs on but he could have just used the TTR parts. http://www.off-road.com/dirtbike/project...rt-3-52084.html ------ https://fastwayperformance.com/footpegs/footpeg-products.html/?find=2004-yamaha-tt-r225-3360613 Sorry you asked yet?

Since my financial situation has improved recently, I went ahead and bought the DMO pegs from Bill.

I only installed them just an hour ago, but all I can say is they are awesome. I should have scraped the money together long ago and made this purchase.

Bill makes an excellent product. He is also a sponsor for this site and has been for some years now. His products are also made in the USA. Thanks for your support and + review. Every little bit helps.

I was concerned that they might take some getting used to since they really are quite a bit wider and longer than the stock pegs.

It was a pleasant surprise when I rode to work this morning and noticed basically no different with regard to braking and shifting, all the while my feet felt much more "planted".

Fantastic product!
