Apropos of my order for the aliexpress pivot pigz
... well, ordered 25th May, arrived here all the way from Chyyyyna in 7 days flat. ETA was 18 Jul.
They arrived packaged well and look good. They're really well made, basically just a rip off of the pivot pegz. Just have to hope they will fit.
Popped off the OEM pegs and they slot straight in. The prongs fit like the OEM pegs, the original bolt goes through fine and no rattle.
Everything is perfect for 1 ... Minor... Hiccup...
The cammy bit past the bolt hole on the OEM pegs is a fair bit longer (there's some 10mm between the hole and the end of the spur, and the new ones are only about 7mm). As a result the pegs hang loose and don't stop up against the frame and are not sitting horizontal. Ahh bugger...
Popped a couple of washers to see if that was the issue and yep, with the extra thickness the pegs sit properly flat and...
fold up AND pivot properly... Just like the pricey original ones
Now all I need is to call on a friendly welder to weld a small metal plate either to the frame or to the end of the prongs (frame probably stronger, but then OEM pigs cannot be used anymore). Shouldn't really be a problem though.
All up i'm happy to have sprung for the test. Well worth the money and time. Link is above for those who want to save themselves $200/- rather than support an Aussie business
