I posted this in one of the threads in the Sport/Tour area, but I think it just kind of got buried there...

So I got some Buell footpegs last night (thanks TomServo!) and put them on the bike. I haven't actually ridden with them yet, but I did climb on the bike (haven't adjusted the controls yet either). Anyway, my question is more in regards to how close my foot is to the exhaust ('05 SVs) -- just relaxing, my heel was resting on either the front of the muffler or the end of the pipe.

For those of you who run Buell pegs, did you have issues melting the heel of your boots in the pipe? Did you install some kind of insulation, or make some other adjustment to prevent this?

TIA.

I haven't had any issues and I've had them on the bike for about a year. This is on a first gen

I have had them on my 05 SVN for about a year and I haven't noticed any problems.

Yeah, could someone post some Pics of these?

Also, what's the deal with using the Buell pegs? What do they offer to an SV-S haver. I have the riser plates from Blair on mine and have them reversed to lower and set the pegs rearward a bit to open up the knee bend I had, about an inch down and an inch back is the most I can get. Will the Buell's offer more than that?

This shot ought to help, it's on an 04 nekkid with a TBR midpipe and canister.






They move the foot out about an inch as well as the down, so unless you keep the tips of your toes on the peg instead of the ball of your foot, you should be okay

Thanks you!

A much better representation when compared to the super-imposed shot on the the other thread. This just may work even better when added to my riser/lowering plates from SVR
