So this is my third set of Krator Off-Road style footpegs. Last two sets installed on KLR's. These fit the V-Strom just as well (2009 Wee)
But no springs with these pegs...no problem, lets get some tools and wire and make our own!
"But why do I need springs Mr. Outdoorgb?" Springs make certain your pegs are down when you need them...Up is bad.
Tools: needle nose, channels, fencing pliers (or what ever)...12mm deep socket
Materials: .062" stainless steel weld wire (I use 17-4). Welding shop, get at least two. Heck, grab more. Stuff is useful.
The instructions and pics are for the brake (right) side...same deal for left side but the BIG HOOK around the peg and LITTLE HOOK around the peg mount are mirrored. Read that again, or, since you bought plenty of wire...you'll figure it out.
Put the 12mm deep socket in vice and hold one end with vice grips. Leave about two inches beyond the vice grip
Make four wraps around the socket
Take a look at my pics...put the spring on the peg and see how to bend over the foot peg
Bend it over, trim, file to avoid boo-boos
Now, put that bad boy into the peg mount and put in the pin...don't put the clip back yet
See how the long end of the wire needs to come up and over the mount
Thread this up and use the needle nose to add some spring tension
Pull over and down
Trim and file
Hey, put the clip back onto the pin...
Left side? Rinse and repeat. If my instructions suck, likely, try again with the spare wire you bought, or, Google it...may be a video out there.
