DR650 footpegs

I saw somewhere that the footpegs from a DR650 are a direct bolt on for the Dl650. Of course I can't find the link now. Can anyone confirm that they work?

I can get Dr650 pegs on ebay for about $30 shipped; sure beats the price of the Touratech pegs.

Thanks

The KLR 650 ones are a direct fit, and the DR ones need some drilling and bigger pins. I have the KLR pegs as seen on ebay, and they are great! I bent the spring a little, but other than that, it's a 5-10 minute job max.

I bought the EBay DR Pegs.

I also ordered the DR650 Pins, springs and clips $8.00 Australian) from a dealer.

You will need to drill the footpeg mounts.

Total time to install including drilling the footpeg mounts and the original pegs so I can put them back on in the future: About 10 minutes.

Measured the stock DL650 peg pin and it is approximate 20/64" OD and the stock DR650 peg pin hole ID is approximate 26/64". Drilling out the peg mount for the larger DR650 pin is a good way to go. Took the DR650 peg & spring off of my KLR & installed on the DL650 temporarily this morning for a couple of photos:

Has anyone thought about sleeving the DR pegs to make up the gap, rather than drilling the peg mounts on the bike?

The ones from ebay required no drilling or changing the pins. The stock DL springs will also work. Just flip them upside down and bend the ear back. I liked them alot. Very little extra vibration, and a much more stable feel while standing up. I had a minor low side on pavement and broke one. Yep folded like a cheap card table. I dunno maybe the stocker would have done the same. Oh, well if I get them again at least I have a spare now. Worth the $30 IMHO
