XR's Only - High Performance Parts For The XR500 & The FT.
« on: August 20, 2013, 01:39:12 pm »
I just talked with "Tech" at XR's Only & they offer many high performance parts that will cross-over to the FT500.

Here is a portion of the XR500 parts available.

Would you happen to know if those IMS Foot pegs for the XR500 would cross over to the FT frame?

I don't know. They look like they might, but the FT has a rubber mounted foot-peg mount & I highly doubt that the XR has the same. I modified my FT pegs by taking the peg apart & getting down to the tube that is inside the rubber cover. I then cut the tube to where it was just a stub long enough to fit the foot-peg mount & hinge up & down. I bought a pair of used KTM dirt bike pegs off of eBay & had them welded to the stubs. Here is my posting on my pegs: http://ascot500.com/index.php?topic=79.msg308#msg308

Those IMS pegs look nice, but you can fab up something that is close for a lot less than $100

Good luck
