I scrape my pegs

well just went riding today and every time i take a corner i annoyingly scrape my foot pegs on the ground. does any one else share my pain? if so has anyone else thought of cutting and re-welding them?

No

Re: I scrape my pegs

those must be the longest pegs ever, or you take the sickest turns.

or you mean on a noped or something?

Re: I scrape my pegs

Its on a 83 qt50. there not long pegs, just really low, and it probably doesn't help that i use to ride dirt bikes and sport bikes. i try to take corners ungodly fast but the pegs get in the way. just seeing if anyone else has that problem

Re: I scrape my pegs

i do this on my express, but those footpegs are spring loaded. cut them off one and weld them on yours.

Re: I scrape my pegs

got any pictures?? how is it when you drag pegs then?? mine just about throw me off, there solid though....

Re: I scrape my pegs

they just fold up, and then you know not to lean any further.

Yeah, I scrape my tomos pegs on like every corner too. It sucks. I feels yer pain mosdef, I've almost bailed a couple times because of it. It seems like a man can't take a corner over 25 these days, and then if you go too much slower your bike will downshift. I've considered shortening them yes.

Re: I scrape my pegs

I have the same problem on my qt50 sometimes. I haven't looked into it much but maybe you could bend the whole assembly forward and up. Or just cut an inch or two off if you still have the plastic panels on yours.

Re: I scrape my pegs

well then i think its settled. i already have the plastic things off. i think ill just cut them off and move them up like 3 inches and reweld them on? itll be a little more scrunched in the legs but oh well. and probably will be able to do better wheelies then.

Re: I scrape my pegs

Madtown. Are you sure you have the pegs bolted on right. I had a tomos with footpegs and found I had them bolted on upside down. Switched it over and never had a problem again.
