Post Question about footpegs/rearsets
I've had my foot slip on the pegs on my 749R a couple of times lately and I noticed the pegs are the same part number as 848/1098 Ducs.

My question is whether anyone has switched to the 1098R pegs (billet) or rearsets? Any suggestions or should I just use a file for now? I am pretty low on funds these days, but the stock pegs are getting really slick and I don't want to get hurt. The list price on the R billet (more aggressive cleats) is $105 each so it would be around $210 to just do pegs and I wonder if there are any good low priced rearsets for 749/999.

Thx

just use a file and rough up the ends of your rearsets and save yourself some money... :grin:

Yeah that might be the smart thing. I just took a look and its the non-cleated tip that looks polished now. On second thought maybe some medium emory cloth is all it needs.


thx

There are some aftermarket options. You can check online in places like Ebay.


Knarles are the biggest improvement on pegs. Aside from the foot peg itself, though, perhaps check your technique and make sure you have your foot planted correctly. I know that sounds crazy, but you would be surprised at how easy it is to pick up a bad habit and not realize it.
