my fusion pegs are i think 12oz i believe and together its 24oz and its pretty heavy but u get used to it because i had a problem when i manualled of leaning to the left side because the sproket, chain, pegs, chain tensor , and brake level are all on the right side of the bike and u got to get used to it but it isnt bad once u get it

Cheers mate, its just i have just had some made by a cnc machine out on the shopfloor and they look the doggs but i though 10oz might be a little heavy, the original ones we based them on weighed in at 8oz (DK 4 Pack), Trying to find some titanium bar to get him to make some titanium pegs for the sparks !!

"heavy" is relative, it does not matter whether a product actually weighs 10 or 12oz if it feels ok to you then it is fine.

but to put it in perspecitve the animal lite pegs weight 8oz each, and they are considered to be light weight (but very strong and hardwearing) pegs.
so 10oz is probably about average for a cromo peg.

oh no average peg weight is like 18 oz(for 2 pegs) so yours are average since they be 20 oz but dont be going and getting those titanium pegs just for a spark chromoly is the best to stick with cheap and last long but are light enough and dont make a big difference since titanium pegs are a few oz. lighter
