IMS Pro Series Pegs Fit Problems

Post by VTMTcowboy » 02:58 pm Jan 04 2019

I just tried fitting up the IMS Pro Series pegs to my 04 KDX and couldn't get the spring to align properly with the angle of the pin and thus allow the peg to fit correctly? It didn't even seem close. I had read numerous reviews and found that most said it was an easy install. I know that other members have IMS pegs on their KDXs, how do you get them to fit? I don't mind the stock pegs, but with a size 12 boot a little extra platform would be great! Thank you.

Hmm, odd. When I purchased my '98 it already had the Pro Series on there. I know on some pegs you have to move the springs to the opposite side. Give that a shot. If it doesn't work, post up some pics and I'll compare it to mine.

I am going to give it another shot next weekend when I get back from travel. I'll take some photos to better show what I was trying to describe. Have heard mixed results so was hoping someone else was having the same issue to make trouble shooting easier. They look like great pegs, so hopefully I can get them fitted properly.

Yeah, they are great pegs. They are my favorite out of all pegs on the market.

I had to do a little grinding on one of my new IMS pegs to get it to fit correctly. Another trick to help with the alignment of the pin/spring assembly is to use a thin screwdriver and insert it all the way through the footpeg/spring assembly. Then, apply side pressure/leverage to the screwdriver while introducing the pin to footpeg assembly -- **may require a tap with a mallet/hammer to the pin for the final drive through the assembly. I've had to use this technique on newer footpeg installs on my vintage bikes and my KDX.

Thanks Skoalman. I should be able to give it another run next weekend so I'll try to use this technique.

They must have sent me the wrong pegs. Mine said fits kdx and kx 500. But, pin was larger and I had to drill out the hole to next size. I couldnt get the pegs on with the spring under the peg. The IMS did not have a hole in the peg for the spring. Once I drlled the hole and put the spring dog in it the went on fine. The right peg was fine. The left was high and I had to do a little grinding. I was dissapointed at having to do all that.

If others put them on with no problems, mine must have been wrong. I mean the pin size was bigger and you cant use the smaller stock pin. Well, i guess i could have, then they would have gone right on!

Between the rain and travel for work I still haven't had the opportunity to re-try the fitment of these pegs. I do not have a garage and am not allowed to do "mechanic work" under our apartment's carport so I am at the mercy of the weather. I spoke with someone at IMS and both the #s on the pegs and packaging lined up to the KDX spec, so we'll see.

The KLX fork swap will happen soon to. I decided I am going to try and do it myself, except for having new bearings pressed onto the triples. Should be a fun project and will document it along the way/post here to help anyone who is interested in doing the same.
