Call them, maybe they can figure it out from the description from my order and my order number.

Also interested in these EVO's as I just placed an deposit on a 2022 Triple Black XR.  I sent them an email asking for the Gen 2 part number.

One of the only things I didnt like about the bike on my demo was the pegs stabbing the back of my calves while stopped at a light.

If they were actually stabbing you, you should check that bike to make sure they were not reversed during installation. Properly installed, they should fold backwards if they touch your leg and then they spring forward when you move your leg. If they are reversed, they will not fold backward, they will stab your leg; in fact, reversed, the foot pegs can seriously injure or break your leg if your foot gets caught on a pothole or road bump when the bike is rolling forward.

Just wanted to give you all an update on the SW-Motech pegs. I contacted the company and they said that the pegs for the Gen2 have been discontinued due to the lack of sales. "If you can find part#FRS.08.112.10201 it will fit your machine." Hope that helps someone. I haven't been able to find anyone in the states that has a set.

I emailed them and after this reply I sent them a link to this thread
This is their original reply...
Are you a KLR 650 or BMW S1000XR owner?  We don’t make these any longer but if we find out who in the market needs them we might be able to get the powers that be to manufacture them again.

 

Cheers,

Thank you Jerry.  I did not know this.  I will certainly double check them on my bike when it arrives in December...hopefully it wont be stuck on a cargo ship in the Atlantic
