Thanks for the link. I'm def upgrading those.
I believe on the safety note, going to look into upgrade headlight too.

So I figured this would be an easy job and wouldn't need to remove the shifter to get it done. I was wrong. LOL. Center punched the end of the shifter and tried to drill a pilot hole. Unfortunately the drill bit broke and ruined all chance of me just drilling a hole and mounting the new toe peg. So, I decided to remove the shifter and clamp it in a vice and drill it out that way. No go. The bit kept going off center and not going all the way through, due to part of the pilot drill bit still stuck in there and my sucky drill bits. It was at this time I decided to get out my 2 pound persuader and a punch and start hammering away to knock out what was left of the oem toe peg. Several whacks later and it was out. Test fit the new Woodcraft toe peg to make sure it would fit without any modification or the need for a longer bolt and was happy to find it would go right on without issue. Re-installed the shifter onto the bike and then installed the toe peg. Seems to work well. I'll find out this weekend when I take it out for real ride if there are any issues.

The broken remanats of the toe peg,






After 5-10 minutes with a hand file. When I still thought I would be able to drill through easy peasy LOL.






And the new Woodcraft Folding Toe Peg installed

Thanks. I also ordered a non-folding red & black toe peg from Ebay(from China) just in case the Woodcraft doesn't work out for some reason. It was only $7 and it's always good to have a backup! We'll see how long that one takes to get here.

Took her out for the maiden voyage with the folding to peg and all is well. 120+ miles of trouble free shifting!

New shifter toe peg should be on it's way to you here in a few hours!

What choice of tire did you go with and how do you like them? I'll probably need a new set this winter and I was just going to go with another set of Scorpions since they've been good enough for me so far.

Went from Angel GT to the new Michelin Road 5's, can't praise them enough, best road tyres I've ever had and superb on the track too as the edge is basically a slick.

PR5's FTW! Well, for the hoon-commuter crowd, anyway.

I can't recommend the cheap Asian shift lever on eBay. It has way too much play around the adjustment points and feels like it's gonna frag if I tighten the screws anymore. Can't believe how much trouble I'm having trying to install my quick shifter. I'd gladly buy a comp rearset but the cost to mount pillion pegs is redonk.

I'm more interested in the hoon tire than I am the commuter lol. My Hyper is strictly please so if I get 3k miles out of a set I'm fine with that. I don't need a tire that last 10k miles. I would rather have max traction than longevity.
