They are nothing special. Did you break a stock one or something? These are by no means an upgrade from stock.

i know, mine are bent like hell i am having difficulties especially at shifting gears. are these IMS worth the extra 40$? : http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/productDetail.do?navType=type&webTypeId=93&navTitle=Dirt+Bike+Parts&webCatId=19&keyword=IMS+FOOT+PEGS&prodFamilyId=5314#vehicleSelect

The fact that they are "wider" than stock is an upgrade in it self...

If you dont care that they are "cheaper" peg then I would say buy em.

I bought these ones and they have been awesome :thumbsup:

(They dont show them for the 400 but I'm sure a 03-06 WR peg will still fit your bike)

i just checked and the OEM footpegs from '98 don't interchange with the '99-'00... :ride:

Those look just like a pair I bought.

(There are plenty of similar -- if not identical -- pegs being sold through a bunch of different outlets. I've seen them for as low as $18.95)

They are not much to look at, just black paint over the rough, as-cast finish.

The teeth are not super sharp, but some people like that.

They are 'taller'. Due to the way the peg is located on the pivot, they move your feet up about 5+mm over a stock peg.

They are heavy and seem plenty durable.

:thumbsup:

IMS Pro-Series Foot Pegs are top notch, but pricy...

I managed to score some of these Moose titanium pegs for less than the price of some fastaways last year.

Let me say once you try pegs with a high center you'll never go back. Way more grip when getting forward or back on the bike. It also sits in the arch of your foot well for regular riding and doesn't bother me when riding on the balls of my feet. Great design for keeping mud from packing as well, very open. And the Titanium pegs are tough as nails. A year of abuse and they still look like new. Didn't take me too long to start bending the stockers.

They have very sharp teeth that you don't have to keep filing ( I still have to file my brake pedal though :ride:) and a little wider than stock.

The titanium ones are also almost half the weight of stainless :thumbsup:

If you can't find a deal on the titanium ones Moose offers the same design in stainless.

I did some measuring on mine...

50mm (almost 2”) wide, 83mm (3 ¼”) long, 295 grams.

They are ¼” wider, 8mm TALLER, 3mm further forward, and more than 100 grams heavier than the standard YZ/WR foot pegs.
