Scrambler Foot Pegs

The next step in my budget minded modification of my Scrambler is front foot pegs and shift lever. I have done my homework and searched every thread here on what will work and what won't without some fabrication although there are a number of contradictions particularly in the foot peg department. For example, Yamaha leads the way with the YZF,R6,R1, and FZ models for certain years and some claim to adapted pegs from the Kawasaki KLX and KX series with some Honda and BMW models thrown in for good measure. There appear to be only a couple of direct bolt on's around for the bike, Oberon, Pivot Pegs, and KNL Cycle but they come with a healthy price tag. Our resident expert Forchetto did an excellent write up on the shift lever and what will bolt up from the Honda range giving numerous choices and price ranges. The dilemma is as always, what will look good and be effective within a limited budget. I wear a size 12 boot and really like the look of the motocross type pegs but am open to all. I have looked at just about everything on Ebay. (I really don't see how the Chinese people are still subject to such population growth, they should be too busy making foot pegs and clutch levers.) If anyone has any photo's, input, or recommendations please throw them out there.......

Update

Tried a set of pegs for a R1. I had to drill them out and shim for fitment and I am still not satisfied with the final look. I am probably going to go with the Oberon or KNL set as a Christmas present to myself. I think am keeping the shifter lever, an Ebay special for around $25.00.

I could not be happier with my KNL's - but the cost of admission is steep

Dkreidel,

They really do look good on a Scrambler, leaning very heavily to the KNL's. Thanks for the shot. I hope you got out of snow country before the winter weather set in......

Update

I got a package in the mail today from Ken at K&L. They are his T35 foot pegs which are 1/2 wider than the ones displayed on his website. These are perfect for my size 12 feet and I think I may shoot them satin black. Excellent quality and cut to order. Unfortunately I can't post a shot of them on the bike until after Christmas, Wife's rules. Since she footed the bill, I will obey.......

Can you give me the part number on that MSR shifter peg? It should be stamped on the opposite side of their logo.

I too want that one but I got the wrong size.

The thing that I don't like about the KNL's is the grey color that easily turns even darker; I see that you painted yours, so they look nice for now but how will the paint hold up over time? I saw some on a bike a few days ago and didn't like the dull grey color. I need to get something but I am not sure that these are the ones.

But the price of admission is cheap compared to the $75-$85 each for the OEM pegs.
