I was talking with a buddy yesterday who dropped his V-Strom and broke a footpeg. So he's calling around ... Local dealers - $170. Online from Bike Bandit or Sabre Cycle - about $110 delivered to Blaine.
So, because he's a Scotsman, he's still looking. A Google search turns up another alternative. An online purchase from China ... yeah, yeah - I know but keep reading.
First, they don't sell them except as a pair but the price gets him hooked. Bottom line - a package arrives in Blaine with two footpegs, complete with pins, circlips, springs, sacrificial bolts and rubber pads riveted on, including shipping for - wait for it -
$14 - Yeah, FOURTEEN DOLLARS
Not only that, it was in Blaine within 4 days! I've never seen a Scotsman smile like that before!!!
