Question Stock Exhaust, Right Heel...No Room!

I know this has been mentioned in several threads, but it doesn't seem to be widely talked about. I don't have room with my stock exhaust to put the balls of my feet on the footpegs like I've had on my other sports bikes. Well, I DO, but only if I angle my right boot out about 45 degrees or so.

Is there an adjustment to be made that will give me more room? I've adjusted the footpeg, but that didn't help. I couldn't see anything else. Is an aftermarket exhaust the only remedy? Is the Corse titanium exhaust any better? Any other suggestions? Appreciate it!

Corse titanium exhaust has the same shape basically except maybe headers/midpipe. When i first test road the bike this issue was the first thing I noticed. Kind of just got used to it, it's not really something I have to make much room for (definitely not 45 degrees )

Even with smaller feet than your 13's, I had the same problem. I ended up having to adjust my normal foot position on the peg to keep from having my knee ache after a day of riding. I wish I had a better answer, but I don't.

Never even noticed. Now have Arrow carbon slip-on cans...still don't notice. I have size 8 (US) feet...maybe that's why???

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

You need to keep the balls of your feet out anyway because the pipes will melt the heel of your boot. Sorry! No solution there except changing to the Arrow GP styled exhaust which I saw on almost all Brutales that were not in the MV Agusta booth at Milan.

An Arrow Thunder exhaust might be for you!
