I've fairly satisfied with the rearsets on my Gen5. I think they're positioned perfectly for someone my size, my only concern is that occasional slip off the peg when my toes at the edge & I'm leaning really hard... obviously losing your foot in that gap between the bike and the asphalt is problematic...

I figured I'd take a look at some Puig bolt on pegs, and there's quite a few options. I particularly liked this one, but figured I'd reach out and see what everyone else thinks.

I would suggest replacing the rearsets. I went with Vortex and it's night and day. You can position them so your leg is completely locked into the tank and the pegs happen to be the grippiest Ive ever owned. If I ever rode with sneakers my soles would be shredded after one ride! I ripped my foot off the peg a couple times on track at lean with stock rearsets. Never a good feeling. The $300+ is money well spent I promise!

However, aftermarket pegs will be grippier then the OEM. If you decided to keep the stock rearsets I can't help you with pegs but I do have some really nice carbon fiber heel guards never mounted...

Ive been surprised by a cheap pair i got off Lucky Bike years ago (probably same pedal just revised), they are even worn and im not sure how they grip. Must be my boots too. I buy cheaper stuff for the 636 but they've worked out well for me, even in toad stranglers.

I also really like the build quality and grip of my Spiegler LSL pegs. They dont look like much but are surprising. Pricey to me for just a peg but they are nicely made.

Edit - FYI the Spieglers can either be bought fixed or to pivot, i believe the extra parts for the pivot end up making them more pricey than whats in the link. They're solid though.

Well, as an engineer thinking about this, the problem would seem to be more related to your foot placement on the pegs and the type of boots you're wearing. I would look at those rather than worrying about the footpegs. But that's just me. :wink:
