The shop called Saturday while I was working to say the Yamaha accessory foot pegs I'd ordered finally arrived. I'm on my way to Auburn, AL (40 miles) to pick them up. I'll report back later how the installation went, how they work (to me), etc... Don't expect anything drastic other than maybe a bit more comfort - especially when it comes to bashing a leg against them while moving the bike around. {Raise your hand if you have already suffered from that! LOL}

Until later, here's a photo of my old FZ-09's stock foot pegs compared to the ones on the Super Tenere. The Tenere pegs are nearly identical to the add-on ones for the SCR950.

Hand raised! Not only have I painfully banged my shins on the bare metal stock pegs but the lean-angle feeler can sometimes get snagged if I'm not careful putting my feet down. So I was wondering if the Adventure Foot Pegs BL3-F14D0-V0-00 would be an improvement? The main difference in the picture appears to be a taller rubber block insert, so I'm looking forward to your report.....

I got the new SCR950 cleated off road pegs installed this afternoon. It didn't take very long at all.
There is a small issue with the kit, however.
As stated in the parts list, nothing from the old pegs is meant to be reused.
The kit comes with two new, equal-length pivot pins.
I did the right side peg first and quickly discovered that they won't work - they are several mm too short. (see accompanying photos).
I simply cleaned off and reused the original pin and the peg went on perfectly.
Next, I did the left side peg and found that the OEM pivot pin is shorter than the right and the same length as the new pins.
So, I used one of the two that came with the kit and now have a spare new pin.

Now maybe my legs won't suffer so much abuse when I bang a shin on one moving the bike around.
=)

left side photo + a note:
The parts list says some of the pieces aren't available separately.
They actually are, sort of.
For instance, the rubber part is identical to the ones on the Super Tenere.
Cover, Footrest 23P-27413-00-00 $12.11 retail.
So is the spring, 90508-20041-00 $1.75

Shin banging is part of motorcycle riding no matter the pegs. :grin2: If the pegs are unneeded, then we may as well just get the footrest and spring if the pins can be reused, though I'm not sure how much you'd save.

It's probably a lawyer thing. The reuse of a critical component scares 'em.
Here's a strange detail:
The right side pivot pin is the longer one.
OEM part price is $1.49 .
The left side pivot pin (short one) is $2.98
They both use the same $1.67 cotter pin.

It's been a few days since I installed the accessory foot pegs and I must say that I like them a lot!
There's a bit of extra vibration reduction and they took all of 5 minutes to get used to.
It was like I was waiting for the "Nice, but..." to kick in only it never happened.
I haven't caught a shin on the edge yet like I did on the stock pegs, either.

Money well spent if it reduces vibration too! Constant jarring on your foot can make riding more tiring than it needs to be. Have you gone one a long ride with them yet?

That's going to help a lot for someone that rides this daily since there are a lot of those in the city, primarily due to the fact its much cheaper than driving and of course actually FUN. Cage life isn't for us ;)

I've taken a 90 mile run and commuted a couple of days this week on it, too. That I forget all about them is actually a good sign.
They are easier your feet than the all metal pegs, less likely to hurt you when simply pushing the bike around the garage and if you put real weight on them, the rubber crushes down to allow your boot sole to get a grip on the built-in metal cleats.

Yamaha! You listening?
Put them on the bike already and fire whomever okayed the maddeningly awkward horn button switch gear! I owned a FZ-09 with the same setup for almost 3 years and never did get used to the unconventional, out of the way, can't reach it quickly when quickly counts horn button!

I think there are horn button mods out there, why Yamaha chose to put the button so far from our thumbs, I will never know. So easy to brush up against the signal switch too and accidentally signal to the right.

They just need to move the high/low beam switch a bit higher and relocate the horn button.

Sometimes I think they do things like this out of laziness since they know we'll still buy in the for all the things that product does well.
So any changes to things like this will take a while, no hope in it being a next MY change over :(

I changed the flash to pass wires for the horn wires on my former FZ-09. It was easy to pull the "trigger" and sound the horn without altering my grip on the bars. Things were still awkward as I frequently swapped between the FZ & the Super Tenere with it's "normal" horn button.

It would be far simpler to exchange the wires at the harness connector than re-solder everything. I did it the way I did because of a wiring harness recall that involved swapping several wires to accommodate a new headlight harness on the FZ. I didn't want to mix anything up. The solder project wasn't difficult at all.

I found someone who outright bought a button off ebay and glued it onto their FZ. Not the cleanest mod, but it works. This is also an option.

that's what i was thinking because someone not as hands-on and mechanically inclined will have their head explode looking at all this soldering.

harness connects regardless of what it is, is always the easier way out.

I just installed Yamaha's Adventure Foot Pegs BL3-F14D0-V0-00 and like Eddie found the new pivot pin supplied in the kit for the right side is too short. Both pins in the kit are 37mm but the right side needs a 42mm. No probs - just reused the original.

I just got the adventure pegs for my scrambler, and they didn't come with new pivot pins. Instructions said to re-use old pivot pins. Did come with new cotter pins though.

Charles.
