Our stock footpegs were dull, so we had Metal Tech replace the
teeth on our stock pegs. They take your stock pegs, grind down
the stock teeth and replace them with new teeth ($125). They can

reposition your pegs fore or aft. You can even get bigger teeth if
you desire. We kept the stock placement but went with a sharper
tooth pattern to get better grip.
When we were done, our TC250 project bike felt better than

world of difference. If you want to get the most out of the TC250,
the Factory Connection spring-conversion kit is a nice touch in the

the stocker to know what we needed to change, and then just did
that and no more. Use this 2017 Husqvarna TC250 as your roadmap
to the best TC250 possible. ❏

still have that air fork feeling. Factory Connection
transformed our WP air forks into spring forks.
Of course we raced our project TC250 in the
