Slippery Pegs GONE!!!

In the quest for more foot to peg traction under hard riding I ordered the Oberon Racing Pegs. I already heard of reports that the weren't going to fit right out of the box on the Brutale so I was prepared for some work. Upon inspection the part that fits into the rearset was 2mm too wide so I basically took a Dremel to it and shaved off 1mm off each side. Took about 2 hours to get them down, I took my sweet time testing and measuring frequently so I wouldn't take off too much by accident. With the Oberon pegs fitted it wasn't as slippery as the stock pegs and they were also longer for more leverage. But I still wasn't satisfied with the amount of traction they gave. I then took the peg off of an old set of Lockhart V-1M pegs I had from my old R1. Too my total amazement they fit on the Oberon connector like it was made for it. The Lockhart pegs are MUCH better than the Oberon racing pegs and I'm totally satisfied with this setup. Here's the pics, the last one is the Oberon peg. Enjoy

yes...
now THIS is a useful modification
i LOVE my Brutale, but the stock pegs are some of the worst designed in the history of the motorcycle industry (what were they thinking?)

your change here will pay huge dividends
thanks for the great pictures as well

looks nice, but the problem is that those pegs fold up!!

I wonder if you came up with a good way to make fotpegs solid mounted.

but the stock pegs fold UP on a spring.... like all pegs... don't they? (i'm at work now)... solid-mounting would NOT be a good idea, would it?

race-style rearsets are solid mount. They can act as a type of frame slider in some cases rather than folding up.

Also, solid mounts are better for high speed riding, they give you more control and feel.


I bought Brutale as a street bike, yet I find myself researching race type upgrades to it... taking it to the track and all...what's wrong with me???!?!?!?

I've used both solid pegs and folding pegs many times throughout my riding carear and don't see much difference between them. The main difference is that solid mount pegs are typically more "racey" (more machining and groves) and usually offer more traction than their folding counterparts.
