Parts for a 2003 XT600E

I am looking for some parts for my 2003 model XT600E
I would like to get these parts for my bike to make it a bit better for my trip next year.

1. Larger foot pegs as the ones on it are too thin and i can feel them when stood on the pegs, i am a size UK 7 foot, Euro 41/42 so will in need to get different gear selector and rear brake lever?

2. A taller bolt on screen

3. Making my suspension a bit harder as there is quite a lot of front end dive under braking and they are a bit soft, I am hearing Hydrapro are good springs.

I am in the UK so a Uk based business would be better. Bolt on stuff would be better rather than making modifications

This is the bike at the moment

http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hub.../xt-600e-76823, photos are at the bottom of the thread.

Any help or info would be great, been looking on the Net but not having much joy

Search for "Tw200 footpegs" on ebay, the fit xt600, all you need to do is drille a small hole for the spring in one of them. Super simple, and they're cheap.
