Wanted to modify the standing ergos a bit on the KTM, and decided to go with footpegs from BlackDog Cycleworks. We chose BDCW because they are also a small, ADV-focused business designing and manufacturing American-made products, just like ADV Addicts. So we felt a connection in going with these guys.
Part of the claim to fame with these footpegs is that they are BIG. How big? Well, pretty friggin' big. But the crazy thing is that they are actually lighter than the smaller stock footpegs.
Installation is pretty straightforward, the tough part is pulling out this cotter pin:
Once installed, I was worried they were actually too big and could interfere with putting my leg down (I'm tip toeing when on this bike already). But they were fine - provided excellent stability when standing, lowered about 1/2 an inch which improved my reach to the bars while standing as well.
