Fastway F3 pegs. They are great. Well worth the money. Offer low and high positions, and you can adjust the angle. Plus they come with cleets that you screw in yourself so you can customize how the pegs grip. Pics in my garage

I don't know about the new YZ's footpegs, but us oldtimers with older YZs there is a zero-cost footpeg modification that sets your pegs back and down about 1/2 inch. I did it years ago, pretty much forgot about it. It puts the peg in the same position as the Fastway F3 Lowboys and cost you nothing. Do a search on it, it requires a hacksaw to (carefully) cut off the barrel on the bottom of the peg, flip the barrel to the top of the peg, and switching the springs from left to right.

here it is

I was going to add what was said but wont.

I have big feet, they hung up on the shifter allot until I did the Peg Mod

Unless its bent (Shifter) as fastest says. you may be getting your foot hung up.

The Pics below is how to do the Mod, it gives you about 1" back and 3/4 " down in room. Just swap the Springs right to left. and you do not have to weld the spacers back (If you Dont Want to)

Here are pics of the Peg Mod

How much do the new pegs lower the peg height? Since the '06 has brackets that bolt on to the AL. frame, has anyone come up with a different bracket that can lower the peg to a more comfortable height?
