Recommended Posts

No matter how much of hold my heel to the bike or push down Into the foot rest I find my feet vibrate away from motorcycle. Should I look into new riding shows or pegs?

Check your chain.

On many bikes the pegs have a bit of an inward slope to prevent that. Perhaps pressure wear on the pegs' mounting holes have caused the angle to change. The 4th gen's pegs definitely do wear that way.

Eliminate the root cause of vibration.

Possible steps to take:

  • Balance wheels
  • Replace chain and sprockets
  • Tighten engine bolts
  • Do a tune-up and/or make sure that the motor is firing on all cylinders

Duct tape?

Seriously, vibrations are that bad? Find another member who has a vfr, do a test ride comparison and see if you need to fix yours. Maybe only new soles on your boots...

So I did a test ride in some old sneakers ( yes I know not proper foot wear) and had no problem with my feet staying on the pegs.

new boots it is!
