Foot peg

just purchased a 2012 nite rod. Vrscdx. I have been driving it at high speeds to only have my right foot only slide off the foot peg. thought it might be the shoe I was wearing and it seems to happen with all the shoes I wear. maybe just need to press down harder on the peg are locate my foot behind the break petal. anyone else had this problem. sorry if this has been answered are posting in wrong area. not good at these forums.:alien

Try hooking your boot toe under the brake lever, [not with much upward pressure] helps keep it located... even at above 100

I've noticed the slip effect as well on occaision. Stock pegs suck so I went with iso pegs.

The other thing you can try is to get a peg that has an adjustable clevis (will have a bolt where the female clevis touches the male part). Joker machine ones are real nice:

Try spraying that new "rough grip" grit paint on the rubber peg. Also......Vertically challenged(Short) riders typically have a difficult time with forward control foot grip/reach.

I found in most cases the shoe/boots being a problem; especially if wet, a little wet and or grease/oil from the road when at stops. When possible i go for the non slip soles (oil/water) like slip on work boot (lazy with laces). When on longer rides i went for the side zip up full tactical boot with gel inserts (link below). They come in various heights/colours, steel or soft caps and are damn comfortable and are a good talking piece when getting pulled over by the fuzz/gremlins.

Worth noting i never used la police link re purchase of converse tac boots with side zip ups. I used it as a guide and eventually purchased from this link below as there is a bigger variety. I went desert as only so much black one can have on the NRS. Also worth noting if u register on some of these sites, put what u want in shopping basket but dont purchase? after a week they send a discount code and save some more cash. As for the converse boots with side zip ups, soft cap, i am willing to vouch for them compared to the garbage the army issued when i was serving/perving. Bottom line shop around for the best deal.

Went through the same thing on my 2012 DX. I just found a way to stretch my legs and rest my ankles on the pegs. I am 6'3", so maybe it might not work for everyone. But once I found that one position, it feels like I'm reclined on my favorite chair while going down the freeway. Obviously, you MUST have a boot that atleast is a mid-top. Putting your ankle on there directly is not comfortable.

I went with the Kuryakin (? sp) pegs with the adjustable heel rest. I didn't think I'd like them but I tried them on a friends V-Rod and man are they comfortable. They do stick out a bit farther than stock so they drag sooner, but I'm wearing them down every ride. I would highly recommend them if you're looking for all day riding comfort.
