I came to a sudden stop Thursday night and my Alpine Stars boot got caught in the foot peg. The OEM pegs have a claw like edge and because I was leaning to the left this edge almost prevented me from getting my left foot down, it was not fun. I have 1200 miles on the bike in 5 weeks, it hadn't occurred before so I was really spooked. I've never owned a bike w/ this kind of ledge on a peg before, Im sure it's to help prevent your foot from sliding off the peg in hard cornering but it had to go. Took me about a half hour of hand filing & then polishing using a Dremel to match the height & look of the studs on the top of the peg. Was worried it would look like a hack job but surprised myself at how well it came out, really can't tell anything was changed. If it didn't happen to me I probably would have thought a mod was unnecessary... Please be careful when stopping.
