Riding in the wet
Today was the first day I've ridden the mv through a proper down pour and I didn't like it one bit. The thing that bothered me the most was how slippy the pegs get. I must have looked like bambi on ice with my feet constantly slipping! Has anyone Ever fitted pegs from , say a gsxr etc?

Hence the popularity of aftermarker rearsets.

you can get your file out and cut some groves in your OEM pegs or pop on any of the forum sponsor's websites and find a range of good quality rearsets. They pop up pretty often in the forsale section aswell, infact i think that the acculine set are still up for sale here: [edit: already sold]

As for using GSXR parts on your MV, 1) i doubt the bolt pattern will match and 2) you best keep jap parts off as the glass plexin's in the metal will stop your bike doing 312km/hr

Stock sets suck big time when it comes to grip. I use Ferracci rearsets and they grip very well.

Thanks for the replys, I wasn't going to swap the whole rearset just the peg.

There is a cheaper solution. Don't ride in the wet, but I realise that might be somewhat of a problem in Scotland. Lol

Try surf board wax on the soles of your boots.
