not sure if this is aimed at the guys trying to commercialise them, or me. But mine are holding up extremely well. The only place the Zinc Coating has warn is on top where your boots grip. I will throw a photo up soon.
Cool deal. I was wondering how the commercialized one were coming along but would love to see yours as well. I was debating making some but I have to get back to work first ... LOL. I had double knee surgery about 6 weeks ago so I really haven't even been able to break mine in yet so stockys are OK for now. Just making my "ready" list

I know it's an old thread but I'm going to attempt making a set this week so I'm wondering how well they've held up for anyone who made them.

Any tips or tricks before I get started?

No idea what I'm doing!

The ones I have made have been taking a beating since they day they were made and are still in as good of shape as they day they were first made.

What I do suggest is go to your local laser cutter and see if he can help you out. I do not recommend doing it the way I did. I know of someone else who has made a set with the help of a laser cutter. I am yet to see them, but I believe they would be 100x easier to make!

Literally 100x huh? That is a lot of notching!

Yeah I'm going to an aluminum shop and the guy's going to help me. If they take me 12 hours they'd better last

No idea what I'm doing!

Another Option for Oversized Footpegs

Another option at least for the XMX models is to buy another set of used foot pegs off of ebay (around $20) cut and weld them together. I did this for my quad and it works great.

You have to cut off a few of the mounting points for the nets, but you can easily weld a half of a chain link to replace them. (I am aware that the nets don't line up great. I'm going to fix this when I get new nets)

If you're going to do this, be sure that you leave the 4 mounting bolts intact on the inner portion of the peg then extend from there.
