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 :yo:

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.

BTW, I told Oberon about the peg kit not fitting on the Brutale without modification had they are sending me new peices that will fit. For reference the original ones were 23mm and they need to be 21mm (at least on a 910). I'll report when I get the replacements, probably will take abou two weeks since that is how long it took to get the original peg kit.

There was a Brutale on eBay that had Sato's...they don't fold up, and it saved that bike. granted it had SOME frame rash, it coulda been a TON worse...

Rearsets

There are seven different rearset options at eMoto for the 910. Does anyone have experience with any of them for better adjustment and control? 3-4 of them look like a great option to me.

If I had the $$$ I would get the Gilles, looks the best to me.

That's easy...All you would have to do is take out the stock spring and machine a small aluminum block with a hole in it to fit in the area where the spring used to sit. The trick is the block can't have a taper on it which would allow it to pivot. I also would prefer solid mount pegs but I don't think it bugs me enough to try this.
