I don't notice vibration with the Knight pegs. Rode thru many a rain storm with no slips off the pegs and I like to stand up a lot. Must be the dirtbike riding I do. Also these pegs use the stock springs so they do fold up should the pegs drag. Besides I have a Tuono for major fun riding!

The no-slip part of the Knight pegs is a good selling point, I think.

I stand up quite often to stretch, and have to make sure to have my feed firmly on the Murph's pegs because I've slipped one foot or another off almost before. That will wake you up.  :rotflmao:

JR,
You could put some small screws or allen heads in the faces. I don't think it would require to much to do.
Just a thought.

Are you saying put some small screws into the top of the Murph's pegs to create a surface my boot won't slip on? If so, that is actually a pretty cool idea, and its something I have done in totally unrelated instances but failed to connect to this issue.

Thanks!

anyone used the Motorcycle Larry lowering pegs (driver)?

I have both front and rear MCL lowering pegs and love them. I DO NOT ride really agressive anymore either.
I love the Knee posture of the driver pegs and my occasional passenger loves the rears.

With Larry's all you have to do is adjust things, right? you dont have to chop or gring anything right?

Can you show us some pics?

You have to adjust the the shifter to your preferance. The brake on the other hand was only a little tougher I used the on line instructions for murphs kits for his to do the brake pedal adjustment. I will try to get a few pictures tomorrow afternoon and get them posted.

PaleRider,
According to Larry's instructions all you need to do is adjust the screw for the brake light...or did I get that wrong?...

Not quite enough adjustment for me. I felt my foot resting on the brake all the time. So I cut the screw like  you do on murphs kits. Was easy and works great. It's a good 1 1/2 inch drop
