Cole Townsend at Fasst Company really outdid himself with these pegs.
The quality is unbelievable.
It has the elastomer which isolates to cleats from the peg.
Check out what they say on their website:

Absorbs vibration and abuse.
The elastomer absorbs vibration allowing your feet to remain better planted on the pegs. High-frequency abuse like spikes, jolts, and bumps are also dramatically reduced through the cushion of the elastomer.

Exceptional traction
A combination of our tooth profile coupled with minimized vibration, and larger platform (77mm x 58mm,) literally grabs hold of the bottom of your boot.

Hard Anodized 7075 T6 Aluminum
Provides exceptional construction, strength and wear resistance.

Orange, Red, or Blue to suit you.
All Impact Moto Pegs have a black body with either orange, red or blue elastomers of your choice to suit your personal touch.

Add your name, number or both to your Impact Peg.

... check these babies out.. :shock:

I can't wait to get these on my bike and do some hard core riding with them.
Thank you Cole.
I greatly appreciate the pegs.
If bikes are for kids I'll never grow up.

Nothing is set into stone but we are getting closer to being finished.
The engine is assembled, all the new mods have been tested mechanically and they work great.
The real question is how well will the mods work together???
We will see soon enough :shock:

Had a great time at the Eugene Expo last weekend.
Jason Tanner at JT Engine Works and I shared some floor space.
I can Honestly say that we had the two nicest 500cc 2 Strokes there :lol:

Something as simple as a battery box can be a real pain.
Sure, this bike came with a battery box but my battery will not fit.... More mods????

I called Grey Area KTM and they had a battery tray from some other later model KTM in stock.
So I drove there and checked it out...
