    Default Pivot Pegs Review #3

    https://youtu.be/J9tg2K8Eon0

    So far I'm not in love with these yet, in fact I am still leaning towards static position pegs but something with a wider footprint. Still need to give these a few more rides before I can really make a call on it. I'm still hope full that I can get used to these and that they become more natural feeling.
    This is making more nonsense all the time!

    Anybody else here also a cyclist? As a new dirtbiker, I have had a little bit of a hard time with foot position, especially on the shifter. Getting my boot under the shifter then back out, just doesn't feel natural yet. I know more saddle time will help, but I think these might be the answer. I saw some posters saying that they couldn't get comfortable with the movement vs a static peg, then I thought about my bike pedals--thats how they work already.

    Your argument is exactly why I bought these as I do still rides mountain bikes so it seemed a natural solution and they do help with that but when you're accustomed to the peg being static it still didn't translate over quite as easy as I expected.. For you it may feel more natural immediately.

    I went out yesterday for my first ride with pivot pegs on my yz250 in the woods. At first they felt weird but after a short time they felt good. I'm going to keep running them.

    I put 5 hours on a pair for the first time yesterday. The pivoting felt very weird at first but I liked the larger area to stand on. What I did not like was how much easier my feet slid off especially when wet. In the first hour I told myself these were immediately going up for sale but as I continued to ride them I thought about trying to sharpen the points for better stick.

    I think it only took two short rides for me to get used them.
    I've put about 150hrs on mine and rebuilt them about 20hrs ago.
    On the last two rides I noticed my boot slip off once or twice. I think they've dulled a bit, so it's time to attack them with the grinder.

    I've also tested their strength more than once. The best was when I tried to remove a lychee tree from our orchard with my boot. The pin bent back some, but not enough to affect it's operation. My foot was swollen for a week, but the tree is still there.

    I like that my boots stay locked onto the pegs during gear changes, braking and really steep climbs & descents.
    I think this also helps reduce how much the pegs chew up the soles.

    I have always have been skeptical about pivot type pegs; if they were great, they would come stock on all dirt bikes.
    My right boot is often off the peg and pressed against the frame/engine when braking while turning,
    so a firm lock on pegs isn't always required. Just my slightly less than 2 pesos...

    I had the left peg snap off landing from a jump about five years ago and it was scary. I almost ate it big time but managed to save it.
    As for how they operated I'd give them an A+ I loved the way they allowed me to get to the shifter and brake with so much less effort. Definitely energy saving devise.
    But I have to say I have never run them again given the near catastrophic breakage I experienced.
