Unhappy Slippery Pegs

Hey there guys - have been meaning to ask this question (especially now that it's winter down here in NZ)

Does anyone else have 'slippery' pegs, especially when its wet?

I'm finding both my Sidi's and my TCX boots struggle to maintain a nice grippy feel of the pegs, in fact at my last track day (wet) I had to shift my foot forward to make sure I had some purchase when pushing on the outside peg - definitely a P.I.T.A

The pegs almost feel like they need filed/sharpened/teethed

What was your solution? (BrutaleS)



Thanks in advance team.
Cheers

Tim

yes that's something I noticed on the '10 I bought- peg grip is not good. I'm thinking aftermarket machined pegs or replacement rearsets but haven't gotten to it yet.

I had the same issue. I ended up getting the Fast By Ferracci rear sets through eBay. Cost wasnt too bad at just around $240. It came in natural aluminum finish. I plan on anodizing them black.

Functionally, they are better. Much grippier.

How is the tread looking on your boots?

My alpinestars boots are well worn and slip much more than my Puma's with new tread.

I have the same problem with my pegs. Have been thinking about after market rear sets or pegs, or try to find some pegs from a 1000 Senna.

I replaced my pegs with some longer aftermarket ones, much better. When I remember the name of them, I'll post it.

Dave.

Edit: They where Oberon pegs.

Thanks guys
Boot age - Sidi's have a few Km's on them...but not too bad, the Tcx's are reasonable new (less than 4 months)

Has anyone had their current ones machined?

If I recall correctly, I think one of the board members here did tweak the stock pegs by filing it and adding some grooves. It didn't look halfway bad and he reported it that it worked much better. Here is the link I think:

Thanks Mike, I just wanted to search the thread I posted some time ago and than saw you already find it.

This thing does it for me, I don't have problems any more. After some time, these square pieces get little brushed and worn off, sharp edges get a little rounder and it looks pretty 'like stock' now.

my remedy to this problem is to sand blast the "ball" on the end of the peg with a heavy grit garnet works a treat (leaves like a medium sand paper type finish)& when it starts to smooth out i just re do it again.
