Not sure if they are the same, but apparently WR450 pegs fit the T7.

Current WR and YZ footpegs use the same mounts.   YZ footpegs are titanium and smaller.  WR footpegs are steel and larger.   I use a cheap Chinese aluminum pegs on my YZFXs with screw in grips.  They've been fantastic.

 

BTW, you can drop Yamaha peg mounting location by flipping them upside down.

I've been eyeing off a pair of cheap pegs on AliExpress but just wasn't sure if they would fit, you don't happen to have the link to the set you bought??

I bought these:

YZ85 2002 -2019. YZ450F 2003-2019. YZ250F 2001-2019. YZ125 1999-2019. YZ250 1999-2019. Made from forged 6061 T6 aluminum, CNC machined. FITS MODEL: YAMAHA. Body of foot peg is 2 1/4" (57mm) wide - 3 1/4" (87mm) length.

 

I thought they'd be fragile.  I've bent several stock Yamaha pegs on rocks.   But I've never bent or broken these.

 

These would be interesting too.

My pleasure.   Great forum you guys have here.

 

BTW, you can drop and rearset Yamaha pegs by flipping the mounts left to right.   And I shaved the sleeve off that holds the spring so that my pegs sit even further down and back.  Then I put the sleeve and spring on the other side.   Takes 3 hands to assemble it, but it saves me buying custom mounts and pegs.   I'm 6'1".  I did this on a YZ450FX and YZ250FX.

I'm 6'1" also, not sure if( or why) I might want to drop the level of the pegs, what results were you looking for when changing footpeg level?

So the knee angle is greater.   You are more in a crouched attack position, even while sitting.   Makes a big difference when planting weight side to side while sitting.  Way less leg fatigue too.   Stock it was like doing deep knee bends all day long.  Dropped and back really opens up the rider compartment.

I'll give it a try when my pegs turn up, bought a pair off AliExpress the other day, I've only ever owned enduro bikes until this Tenere, so road riding is sort of new, but it's a challenge pushing this thing around the trail at times lol, it'll be interesting to see what a small change will do.
