Glad to hear that you had a positive experience with Bill's pegs. There are a bunch of "compatible" pegs listed on Amazon.com, but many of them have negative reviews regarding fit and quality. You get what you pay for.

This is a mod that I have been considering, but I think I would have to ride an XT with the longer pegs to see if they made enough of a difference for my needs. I have relatively small feet (US 8.5/Euro 43), and haven't found the OEM pegs too small, but I have no basis for comparison.


Don't fix it if it ain't broke, don't break it if you can't fix it.

Bill's pegs are just excellent. And the wideness as well as the longness adds to your comfort/control.

Yes the width is far more of a benefit than the length, and all those extra sawtooth grippers really bite into your boot soles. My feet are far less likely to slip off these pegs during serious off road action.

Once you finally pony up and buy the DMO pegs (took me 9 months), you see why they cost so much. Pretty involved shapes.

Once you stand up on them, you don't regret paying the money. Haven't actually tried on dirt yet, but, it's like day and night. And standing is pretty important in the dirt with this bike's limited suspension travel. (30mm bar risers also help!)

* Big solid flat platform.

* You can stand on the balls of you feet for better riding if you want; I couldn't easily with the stock pegs.

* You can stand a bit farther back, where the tank is narrower, which is a major plus.

* The transition from sitting to standing is just easier.


On the negative side of the equation:

* One side (the left I think) doesn't fold up as much as it could, the pedal hits the upper pedal bracket mounting bolt. Planning to mention this to the maker. Filing away some peg helps a little; a different bolt might also; it looks like a design change could fix this...

* Some folks report trouble getting a really big boot under the shifter.

* The brake pedal may feel a tad higher.

Bottom line: Bill's foot pegs are simply better than the factory pegs in every way. More comfort. More control. Less fatigue..


The voyage of discovery that truly matters is not in seeking new lands but in seeing with new eyes.

Just wanted to say I got a set of Bill's pegs in for both our XT's. They're amazing. Well worth it!

Here is a link to a footpeg offered on amazon.ca. I'm sure you will find them on the american site if you look hard enough. If not, they might ship it to the US.

https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00RUQ9V8O/?col...lv_ov_lig_dp_it

They charge 67$ CAD with free shipping. That's under 52$ USD today and they have good reviews.
