The stock foot pegs on our Yamahas are pretty decent, but there have been design changes over the years, so swapping pegs to suit your needs is pretty common.

The three basic foot peg numbers are;
5ET-27411-00-00 and 5ET-27421-00-00
5XE-27411-00-00 and 5XE-27421-00-00
5XC-27411-M1-00 and 5XC-27421-M1-00
5UM-27411-00-00 and 5UM-27421-00-00 (2007 WR-only)
17D -27411-00-00 and 17D -27421-00-00

The years they were used break down like this;
1997-2001 5ET- All except YZ80 & WR250. WR400 in 1998.
2002-2003 5ET- ALL
2004-2007 5XE- All except YZ85 & WR which still used 5ET-.
2008-2009 5XC- 4-strokes, 5XE- 2-strokes, 5ET- YZ85.
2010 17D- 250F, 5XC- 450, 5XE- 2-strokes, 5ET- YZ85.

ANY Yamaha foot peg from 1997-on will fit ANY full-sized 2-stroke or 4-stroke YZ and WR. This goes for aftermarket pegs, too.
I'm sure there may be some anomalies, but so far this is what I have found.
Feel free to add any additional information you may have.

The differences in the pegs;
5ET- Mild steel, 43mm (almost 1 ¾”) wide, 83mm (3 ¼“) long, 185 grams.
A decent peg, sturdy, but can be bent by passing rocks, etc. The good news is that they can usually be bent back.

5XE- Titanium, 45mm (1 ¾”) wide, 83mm (3 ¼”) long, 120 grams.
A good peg, lightweight, but some of the early ones have been known to break.

5XC- Stainless steel, 55mm (around 2 ¼”) wide, 83mm (3 ¼”) long, 5mm (around ¼”) lower than the other pegs, 225 grams.
A beefy, wide peg. Rivals many high-end aftermarket foot pegs.

17D- Same as 5XC, but 5mm taller. (Same height as 5ET- and 5XE-.)

Yamaha Parts Depot.com has the best price I've found on 5XC- pegs. You can use the TT store to order them, but be sure to mention the ThumperTalk 110% Low Price Guarantee, show the Yamaha Parts Depot price and web address, and TT will match the price. :thumbsup:

Part Number: 5XC-27411-M1-00 & 5XC-27421-M1-00. YPD Price: $38.89 each.

Good information, so by that you are saying an 05 yz450f has the 5XE pegs and i need to look at 2008 or newer to get the wide ones?

Yep. Any 4-stroke YZ & WR, 2008 and up.
The 2010 250F's have the same big-style peg, just a little taller.

Another way to lower the pegs on aluminum-framed YZs is with aftermarket brackets.

Not sure how far these lower the pegs. Best guess would be 5-6mm (1/4").

http://www.systemtec...tegory_s/69.htm
More expensive, but lower the pegs a whopping 1/2" (12mm)!

You can lower and move back your footegs on an aluminum framed YZ by flipping the peg mounts. You will then have to grind a little bit of the peg were it contacts the mount for the peg to sit flush.

The fastway mounts just have a sunken bolt hole to allow you to use their pegs in the low bow position, the mounts themselves are the same height as stock. The STR mounts also have the sunken hole and lower the mounts 1/2". You could use the str mounts and fastway pegs in the lowboy position if you want to get really low.
I rock the str mounts and its a nice change over stock.

Yep. I did that but it seemed to only lower the pegs 2mm at the most. :thumbsup:

Thanks!

How did you get your peg mounts loose, mine were frozen solid and the shallow torx bolt would not come loose with a snap on socket and heat.

What was your heat source, and what did you heat?

In one of the many posts that were "lost" as the TT format was being juggled around ( :lol: )...
I mentioned using a 1800 watt hairdryer, a T-50 torx on a 1/2 ratchet, and an inner forkleg as a breaker bar (about 26" of leverage total).

With the bike leaned over and secure, I heated the bracket area for about two minutes, then turned the screws out with slow constant pressure. It was almost too easy. :lol:

Looking back, the heat was probably not even needed. The leverage did all the work, and the torx tool was surprisingly stable. :thumbsup:

A T50 fits in mine. I've never seen a T47 that I know of.

The old way of grinding or cutting the peg and flipping them does not work on the 2010. I just did mine not looking at it an the bracket itself is different so now im back to stock height and I hate it hmmmm what to do. i wanna use stock pegs what would you do?
