well, I'm close to pull the trigger on these pegs, I'm just undecided which ones.
The "Type C" (as Radan calls them) are about an inch back and lower. Does anyone here own them? What are your experiences?
Radan already answered a lot of my questions (thanks!) but I'd like to hear some customer voice on these particular "C" pegs.
Maybe it's better to get the less extreme "Type B"? I'm a bit over 6'1" and just got me 10.5 size O'Neil MX boots. So I need some room for my feet  Very happy

I haven't done it on the wrr, but on 2 other bikes 1/2 " down and back made a noticeable difference. (Fastways in low position)

Got my new footpegs, "Type B". Very smooth deal and fast delivery. The build quality is impressive.

It actually is a difference to stock much bigger than expected. Seating position now is very releaxed for me (187cm or a bit less than 6'2", inseam 87cm/34 inches).
Besides that, I feel more as a part of the bike instead of sitting on top of it. Hard to believe such a small change in footpeg position can make such a difference!
My O'Neil MX boots are fine now, too. With the stock pegs I had to raise the shifting lever waaay up, now it's fine.
However, the brake pedal is a bit of an issue. I lowered it as far as possible but it still is higher than the foot peg, which means that you have to lift the foot to use the brake. Not perfect, I might have to consider another pedal (if there is such a thing). I doubt that the bike is usable with the stock pedal and "Type C" footpegs, though.

Finally was able to ride my wr with the lowered footpeg.  I have the type C.  I was able to lower the brake pedal more by taking the jam not off the adjuster and putting it on the under side of the adjuster.  These pegs KICK ASS, I am 6'1 and this is the best mod you can do for the wr250r.  I already had bar risers on the bike but the pegs make a HUGE Difference.  Standing up on the bike in the dirt feels awesome now, way more comfotrable and balanced. Also the pegs being back and inch or so makes the whoops easier aswell.  if you are a tall rider BUY THESE PEGS!!!!

Also I will be able to lower the brake pedal more but I need to cut off some of the threads on the adjuster, right now it is bottomed out on locking pin.

PostSubject: Type D footpegs   Tue Sep 26, 2017 7:25 pm

So some time ago I contacted this vendor, included my age (old), weight (fat), and height (6'2"), and he recommended the new type d peg. Now I gotta tell you, he does want more $ for these than his previous models, in part due to 4mm stock vs 3mm, and to be fair, I have not gotten around to mounting them yet. But here is what I can tell you. I would not have thought twice about spending this much money for these kind of quality footpegs, way back in the day when I was racing motocross. I did think twice about it now at my ripe old, single track and asphalt riding age, but the thing is I CAN afford them now, and they are BETTER made than ANY pegs you will find at your local parts unlimited tucker rocky supplied dealer. I will take more pics and review when I have time to install and enjoy.

Finally had a day to work on the bike today, and among many other maintenance/farkle things, I got Radan's type D pegs mounted. These are advertised as 20mm lower and 10 mm back. On the scales they come in at 23 ounces for the pair, or 11.5 ounces each. Stock pegs are 15 ounces, or 7.5 ounces each. Shift side was much easier than brake side. Cotter pin removal, pull off old peg, insert spring in new peg, get pin started thru first hole and spring, push and align peg with large screwdriver while tapping with hammer. Put on washer, reinsert cotter pin. I was replacing the stock shift lever with a Hammerhead forged one at the same time, and was able to align the new one where I think I want it at. Basically the same procedure on the brake side, however you will have to remove the brake pedal and get it out of the way to get the pin out of the footpeg. Radan's Peg went on pretty easy, but due to the lowered part of it, the brake pedal was just way too high. Did some googleing, found this: https://thumpertalk.com/forums/topic/684574-wr250r-rear-brake-lever-to-high/

Ended up taking the thick bottom lock nut completely off the brake pedal, adjusting to its lower maximum, adjusting the brake light sensor to bottom limit, and straightening the kink in the brake sensor spring out, and to be honest, the brake pedal is still at least a half an inch higher than the footpeg. I can deal with this for a while, but the only long term remedy I can think of is grinding the button off the rivet for the steel tab on the brake, and have one fabricated that is a half inch or more lower, and attaching it to the pedal with a bolt and aircraft nut. Anyone know of another alternative? Finally, I am not dissing the pegs, I look forward to using them in conjunction with the 30mm tusk bar risers I installed today, should be a lot easier to get my old, fat ass off the seat and on the pegs, and be more comfy in that position. Just pointing out an issue that I found.
