    When I first made these wider aluminum footpegs, they were designed to be centered (as shown in the first pic) around the OEM footpegs, with 11/16" more footpeg surface area in front of & behind the OEM footpegs. After the initial installation, the shift lever needed to be raised up a bit to accommodate the 11/16" further forward leading edge of the L footpeg, and wearing motocross boots seems to have exacerbated the problem, which has lead to many missed shifts. To remedy the issue, I ditched the 1/2" spacers in front of the OEM pegs, and bolted the aluminum footpeg directly to the leading edge of the OEM footpeg, then added 1" spacers behind the OEM footpegs. This allowed me to lower the shift lever back to it's normal spot, and cured my shift miscues. Unfortunately, it also messed with the aesthetic beauty of my original design. So being the perfectionist that I am, I decided to redo these, and added them to my "to do list". Well, 8 years later, I decided to finally tackle these, using my new found router milling techniques.

    I started with a wood template, which I thought would be strong enough, but soon found that it had a bit of give, or flex to it, which was leading to slightly errant cuts with the router. As a result, the first aluminum piece cut out, had to be fine tuned, and is now the template for the remaining pieces. It took a while to get the rhythmic footpeg serration pattern figured out, and cut into another template, but I'm pretty happy with the results.

    At this point, it's safe to say that you've mastered the router

    Nice extensions

    Here's the final product before bending them into shape. I chamfered most of the edges to remove the sharp corners, and for aerodynamics as well.

    Those came out great! Nice work. You should make up a few sets and put them in the 3ww store.

    I got them all bent into shape and installed. I think I will call this project done.

    Nonsense, you need to silence yourself! That what some exhaustive work you did on those, and it shows. You should see my muffler spacers. I used a 5/8" hole-saw to drill through some 1/2" aluminum plate, then smoothed out the resulting plug. The funny thing is, I was trying to think of something I could make, with the leftover scraps from my footpeg project, and thought about re-designing the hangers for my silencer. Then about an hour later, I saw your post about yours.
