new member question on foot rest

One week and already at the 600 mile oil change. Love the bike. I do, however, wish for a place to stretch my legs forward. Are there any known forward footrest for the versys 650?

There are indeed highway pegs that people use on the V. Most commonly they'll be attached to crash bars, but I beliew SW Motech makes a mount that connects direct to frame. However you should also take a look at the peg lowering kit from Speedy at Motowerk: http://www.shop.motowerk.com/Lowerin...FPG-LWR-RA.htm
This was one of the first mods I did as a 6'1" rider. It lowers them by 1.3" which, at least for me, made all the difference in the world.

Speedy made them to mount to the frame. Depending on the size of the crash bars if they would mount there.

Spray paint

My 2012 versys is the blacked out version. I'm getting the motoworks foot rest that attach to frame. They only come in the silver color so I'm thinking a can of flat black paint before installing. Any tips from others to best get the paint to adhere?

Some members have had luck using Plasti-Dip instead of just spray paint.

The local body shop guy tells me that the high heat paints have a stronger bonding agent in them.

Mine will be sent out to be powder coated when I get far enough down my wife's list.
