Adventure Peg feelers

Does anyone know where I can find replacements for the long peg feelers on the Adventure?

One of mine broke and everytime I've orderd what is said to be OEM replacements I receive short ones (probably the ones for the non Adventure model.)

If you have a long peg, it must have come with the center stand. I've never seen a parts list for an OEM center stand.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Nope no center stand. In the Motorcycle Consumer News review they mention the long peg feelers being in place on the Adventure due to the reduced lean clearance of the side boxes.

That's news to me. Put a Richland Rick peg lowering kit on and that will get the peg ends lower. :mrgreen: There are no alternate pegs listed in the parts fiche.

I'll be sure to grab a pic of the remaining feeler next time I ride. It's at least double if not triple the length of a normal one.

Anyone else with an Adventure have the freakishly long feelers?

D,
I don't have a need for mine. I removed them soon after purchasing the bike.

Send me a PM with your mailing address and I'll pop them in USPS flat rate envelope. I'd be happy if you got cost of shipping, which shouldn't be more than 4 or 5 dollars.

My ADV footpegs are 1.25" long... converts to 32mm. Freakishly long... not sure about that, but they do look a little odd. An alternate maybe to find a bolt at your preferred legnth to thread into the footpeg. Not sure I like having them on there, but I'm sure there is a reason behind them being standard issue.

I have the OEM center stand and the replacement feeler that came with it was the same length as the stock ones on my Adventure so I have an extra. You can have it if you want it. I doubt if mine will ever have to be replaced as they never touch the road.

My ADV had a short one on one side and a long one on the other. Also came with spares in a bag of goodies I received with the bike. Took 'em both off. I NEVER lean that far and SOMEHOW my pant leg was getting caught on 'em. Now it's so much faster what with the reduced weight and wind resistance.:mrgreen:
