DIY peg extensions

$20 ebay steel pitbike pegs. Turns out they are the same dimensions as the original KTM pegs. Quick cut up and set the length. 5 minutes on the welder and some paint and i will have made 40mm wider pegs in under an hour.

Not really.
They are only 40mm wider. Total 120, boots are 110. Always surprised me how narrow standard foot pegs are.

Fairy nuff. I'd prefer wider than longer for my riding but to each their own

I was toying with the idea of adding some heal support too. Almost like a Full Perch peg.

quote= RedK " i will have made 40mm wider pegs"
What does that mean?... 40mm wider than stock?

I made my pegs wider & longer back in the day:
That was on my IT250:- Akin to our DBW's Keg.

I did just as you are doing & have done.
I welded-salvaged peg-metal onto mine.

Stronger/wider pegs are the go: If the mounting copes.
Much-longer isn't imo: There's a reason that isn't done.

Wider pegs=wider bike.
Like wide tyres. Longer pegs = for longer feet.
