You’ve worked hard configuring the crankpins and finetuning the engine to achieve optimal power and timing. When you fire up your bike and hear it roar to life, it’s music to your ears. All that power means nothing if you can’t control it, however. Swapping out factory footpegs or worn aftermarket footrests with a new BikeMaster Frame & Footrest set is one of the most affordable performance upgrades you can make—and often the most overlooked. The right set of footpegs enable you to position your body comfortably and offer more grip for better balance, regardless of whether you’re riding on- or off-road. Footrests are almost as important as handlebars when it comes to controlling a motorcycle. New pegs also promote easier braking and shifting.
At BikeBandits.com, each style of BikeMaster frame & footrest for motorcycles and off-road bikes we offer is designed for different purposes. There isn’t one certain type that is best—the pair you choose ultimately depends on the size of your bike, your own body type, and where you ride. Longer, wider aftermarket pegs are ideal for larger bikes, especially touring motorcycles. Tall riders often install highway pegs for long-distance rides. Footrests with open cleat designs make it easier to clean off mud, snow and other debris after an off-road adventure. Folding styles for the driver make it easier corner your bike without dragging pegs or crashing. On the rear, folding buddy pegs offer versatility when you don’t always have a passenger. Other things to consider when shopping for footpegs include height adjustment, profile arch, tread pattern, face angle and material. Don’t automatically assume that a durable material like steel is better. It’s stronger in the event of a crash, but it’s also heavier. Lightweight, machined aluminum is more favorable with racers.
