petrosk Posted April 5, 2010 Report Share Posted April 5, 2010 Hello, I just bought a set of pegs for my 749s, and I am not sure on how much up-down and front-rear should I position them. Basically the reason I bought aftermarket pegs, is that the OEM Ducatis were slippery, making my foot slip off the peg during turns. According my CSS instructor, that happens cause I am to close to the back of the tank, making my outside foot twist to the outside and then slip off the peg. Of course he is right, but I am very short and it is difficult for me to hang off the bike keeping one fist distance between the back of the tank and my .... and at the same time having my arms relaxed on the clip ons. As for the up-down positioning, I found out by trying to see which position helps me hang off the bike better (lock my outside leg better on the tank and put weight on the outside peg effortlessly). So I've positioned them at the higher/front slot and it seems to me better. Does that mean that my knee will start dragging on a deeper lean angle than before? Another question is, what difference does front-rear position is making in riding? Here is a photo of me making that mistake Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
