I'm having a problem getting my foot maneuvered smoothly in and around the shifter.

Have you adjusted the linkage on the shift lever? I raised mine about an inch or so before I had 50 miles. I have large feet.

BTW my dark pegs came modified from the factory (no rubber).

apparently, wearing a rubber on the peg is an "upgrade", as the dark is a basic minimalist set-up. it may be so that your boots don't slip on them. I've had my foot slip off the pegs when riding over fairly bumpy terrain. (read: NOT dual-sporting on the monster... just riding over crappy road surfaces).

Great info...Thanx! I should have mentioned that I did first adjust the shifter lever out (all the way). BTW, what are and where can I find the SBK pegs? And it also sound

Tom:
After I saw your post with the pic above I had to give it a shot. I just finished my pegs tonight & installed them back on my Monster. They look great! I think this is an upgrade vs. the rubber covered ones.
Anyway, thanx for the great idea. It was pretty easy to get the rubber off after soaking in some Goof Off then just used the wire wheel on the ole' Dremel and wala beautiful pegs.

Thanx again!

Has anyone tried using a torch to heat up the rubber then peel it off with pliers or a wire weel then. Will the heat do anthing to the peg?
