This past weekend I got a set of DRC Motard footpegs installed on my WR250X. The factory footpegs on the WR250X, which are the same as the ones on the WR250R, are OK but they are a little long and narrow for aggressive street or track riding. I'm always worried about scraping them on the pavement in turns. These DRC Motard footpegs have a slightly wider platform and are shorter, so they lessen the likelihood of scraping on the pavement. And if they do contact the pavement, the plastic peg slider attached to the bottom will slide rather than dig in.
Installation is pretty simple. The first thing you have to do, obviously, is remove the stock footpegs. The left side peg comes off real easily, but the right one takes a bit longer since you need to move the rear brake lever out of the way. Once that's done, it's just a matter of putting on the new DRC motard footpegs using the DRC footpeg springs that come with the pegs.
I really like these things! The wider platform feels much better than the narrow stock pegs, and since the footpegs are shorter than the stock ones, there is much less likelihood you will drag them on the pavement. If you do, the plastic slider will hopefully keep the pegs from digging in and damaging the pavement, or worse, causing a crash. The black powdercoat also looks sweet on the blacked out WRX.
