Very nice setup job!

Question on the pegs: looks like you've got Fastways, in the low-boy position, yes?

I tried to move mine over from my old YZ, but the brackets are different, and would've required backing the "kamber" bolt way out, almost 1/2". I spoke to ProMotoBillet and they said they hadn't heard of this, but agreed that the bolts can't be that far out with out breaking.

What did you do to set this up?

Ya I ran into the same problem. My pegs with stock bolts were facing downward.. I saw there was a low bracket for the yamaha but I was riding the next day and did not want to wait. I went to ACE hardware and got some longer bolts with a solid 1/4" spacer and it fit perfect the pegs are level now and back. So far no issues at all. I def would not back out the stock bolt it will snap for sure ive seen it happen and can cause some major injury. Just get a longer bolt, there goldish color very hard strong bolt with a spacer that will get the pegs level. My buddy did the same thing with no problems at 30 hours on his 2010. Just make sure the bolt is tightened all the way in againts the thick tube washer you buy at ace or somewhere like that. Its not a normal washer it shaped like a tube and the bolt slides through and loctite it and you should be good to go.

RE the Fastway pegs and low boy mount, here's what I heard back from ProMotoBillet customer support:

--------------------

"We do have something in the works for those pegs, though our solution will probably only work on the newer designs that we have that feature an 8mm camber bolt, whereas your particular setup is an older model of our pegs (note: 6mm bolt). We aren’t going to have a replacement bracket like we do for the earlier models. I do have some spacers and longer sized camber bolts that I could probably send your way, though I don’t know if they’ll be 100% correct. If anything I think the spacer we’d have for the camber bolt would be a bit on the long side, so if you have the capability to cut them down I can get you some parts to work with."

---------------------------

So, it appears that putting in a longer bolt with a 'tube' spacer is the recommended way to go.
