    I have a 98 620 adventure and I'm considering the sxc peg hanger mod to fit up some new footrests. I'm wondering what are the best pegs at reducing vibrations. I'm considering the fastways for sheer acreage, but my primary consideration is making highway speeds less uncomfortable, noting that anything I get will be bigger and better for standing. Any advice?

    For both the small early model pegs and larger late model pegs you can get rubber dampers through KTM parts that bolt on top of the pegs... These rubber dampers seem to take out quite a bit of the felt vibes and while still leaving a bit of the cleated part of the peg exposed to grip the boot...

    Thanks for the suggestion. I've considered popping a paid of those on however I do a great deal of dirt riding and they just don't leave even exposure from the teeth to provide enough bite for my liking. I can deal with the vibrations most of the time, but I wonder if some of the aftermarket pegs are better than others in this regard.
