I am not sure I will have to take one off to see. They are very nice and wide.

The '08 pegs weren't ti, so I'm pretty sure that the '10 isn't either. Yamaha decided that wider steel pegs were better than the smaller ti pegs they had previously.

All I know is that a magnet will stick to the pegs on my '08 and it didn't stick to the pegs on my '06 YZ250F. Shock spring is no longer ti on the '10 either. Yamaha is trying to keep costs down and still have a good bike. MXA has said for many years that they would prefer the light speed steel footpegs with the wider width than the skinny ti ones that yamaha uses.

Not on my 08 they weren't. I think the 2 strokes might have been ti still.

So will the older 2 stroke (or four stroke) Ti pegs fit on the new 450?

My '08 smoker had ti pegs. One of them broke on my second ride. Sunline arched pegs were a fantastic replacement.

I took off my left peg on my 07 yz450 to put on a billet kick stand. While it was off i grabed a steel one to see what they felt like next to each other. I'm sure if you piled up the rear spring two foot pegs and five valves next to steel ones the weight savings would suprise you. To bad the whole bike isn't ti.

seat bolts


Subframe bolts too. I think. If not they were of an alloy I'm not familiar with.
