Wanting to minimize the "buzz" through my feet. Recently installed non-vibratory insoles into my boots which has helped. However I'd like to find some vibe-effective rubber pegs to eliminate the "buzz" altogether.

I have SW motech pegs which are wider. but I like the bike vibrating :) it is kind of nice. i come from the tradition of classic single cylinder bikes, and they really vibrate!

I also have the SW-M pegs, which are much better than OEM in general, but the rubber is a hard-ish compound and they transmit nearly as much vibration. On mine, only the left peg has somewhat annoying vibes on long rides, never the right peg.

My Forma adventure boots help out alot with that.

Like Kris, I too don't mind some vibration. I don't even notice it on the V as I've had some real paint can shaker motorcycles. I'll pay attention to the footpegs to see if they vibrate when I ride today.

I guess it's like airflow- I prefer the stock screen at the lowest position (Gen 1) over a tall screen. No turbulence and clean airflow. If I wanted a bike with full weather protection and minimum vibration I would get a sport touring bike. I'll take my Versys raw, that's what I like about it. And that's what makes the world an interesting place- we're all different.

Good luck in your quest for a smoother ride, Clovis.

When I have noticed vibration in my gen 2 foot pegs, I just moved my foot and it went away.
