BMW Enduro Footpegs
Friday, Aug 2 2013 [1214 miles]
Cal Moto called today to say that the footpegs I purchased with the bike finally arrived. I rode down this afternoon to pick them up. These footpegs will put me one step closer to motorcycle heaven: the footbed in the low position is a measured 1 inch lower than the stock pegs.
This is what they look like out of the box. Left and right are different part numbers. The pegs are expensive – I probably would not have purchased them had I not gotten a healthy discount—due to paying full price for the bike, no doubt!
To adjust the height you first remove the peg body from the mount and then reposition the mount in one of three (high/medium/low) positions. I went for low. Thread locker was used on the screw holding the adjustment piece to the pivot piece. I used a drift to hold the pieces steady and apply enough torque to break the thread locker.
I adjusted the left side completely before looking at the right. That way I had something to look at should the need arise. The need didn’t arise. I used thread locker on the screws that hold the peg body to the adjustment piece just because. It’s ready to go on the bike.
Ahhh, an issue. There’s always an issue. I popped off the stock peg after measuring the footbed height above my stand. I assumed the spring would go on the new peg. I don’t think so. The spring looks to be about 1-2 mm too wide and a bend in the spring that works well with the stock peg doesn’t work well with the new peg.
Realoem says the stock spring is part 46 71 8 528 782. The springs I need are 46 71 8 526 107. I didn’t order those when I ordered the pegs. I’ll call Cal Moto tomorrow and get those ordered. In the mean while I’ll use the pegs without a spring!
I measured the footbed height above my stand with the new pegs in place. 1” (25 mm) lower. I like.
Because the pegs are going to have come off one more time I’ll wait until then to install my next farkle… the enduro brake pedal.

I picked up the springs for my pegs just after lunch, today. I put them on the bike later in the afternoon. Easy job. No lost E-clips.
