I'm thinking about modding sportbike style footpeg onto the WR250x as I don't like the "teeth" on stock footpeg, I can't understand why they are needed if I don't do dirt riding.

But I'm a totally n00b to dirt bike and supermoto, so maybe there is some reason I shouldn't do this?

The footpeg I'm thinking about using are these...

You'll survive if you don't do any offroading, but road pegs are no where near as comfortable as mx pegs. Maybe just grind down the teeth on the stock pegs? Either way you'll survive, but even if you stay on road the pegs with the teeth would still be better for jumping railroad tracks and whatever you might get into even if there's no dirt around. Plus the road bike pegs will be a lot less likely to survive crashes.

The teeth are also nice when it rains and you actually have grip on the pegs with your boots. If I changed anything I'd get wider pegs for a more comfortable platform.
