Not a fan of the original footpegs so I swapped them out this morning for some Kuryakyns. I haven’t gotten to really ride with them yet though...just around the block cause I’m getting my seat modified.

I didn’t really find the stock pegs very bitey myself. The rubber on it is pretty good. I ride in town only so it’s a non issue for me.

Oh the stock pegs are "bitey" alright. Just give them the opportunity and they'll bite right into your shin bone. Seriously though these ones look slippery to me. I like the ones on Eddie's bike, they look grippy and like they'd absorb some vibration.

They do look slippery but they have to be better then stock on the shins! I went with the OEM Yamaha's aftermarket set like Eddie's and they seem better and my shin's are thanking me!!!

Nice, do you happen to have the Yamaha part number? Were they a direct swap? Think I'll put them on my Christmas wish list.

This compete setup only ran me about $60. I just reused the pins from the OEM organ. The rubber on it grips just fine for me and what I’m using the bike for.

Just wanted to update on the grip of the Kuryakyn pegs since some expressed that they looked slippery. I'm happy to report that despite the smooth looking surface, the rubber on them grips really well. Roads were wet on my way home, shoes got wet, and the rubber held my feet in place nicely. I even put extra outward pressure on them on purpose to try to make them slip with my wet soles and my feet did not slip off the pegs.

What parts did you need to make this swap? Very interested.

Nevermind I found everything under $60 on eBay!
I got all the parts in and there's no way this works. The springs don't go in with these, and the adapters don't even fit on the pegs. Not to mention these are giant heavy steel pegs and the stock ones small aluminium. Sending this junk back and gonna keep looking I guess.
