Thanks for that Rich
Maybe they are more suitable for the moto x rider, than myself. I trail ride and do the odd enduro on an 03 501 FE.
Good point about the springs !

Yours are different to the ones I saw Rich.
The ones I tried out on the 'fixed' demo bike rotated at the pivot about 10 mm, which equated to about 60 mm movement at boot end.

What company made yours ?

They have been around for quite some time. I had a set on my DRZ which I had prior to the Berg. They were definitely better than the stock pegs, but take some getting used to. Other riders used to get off saying they felt like they were going to fall forwards or backwards.

They helped with gear changes as I was able to get under the lever easier. Also helped with peg grip on downhills where you're leaning way forward or backwards.

Having said that, the original pegs on the DRZ were fine and I would not do it again. The pegs on the FE are better again and, for the price, they are one of the last things you would do IMO

Btw they rotate 20 degrees forward and back. As stated earlier the return spring is a weak point, but they work just as well without it!
