    Hoping that somebody in Queensland, on the Sunshine Coast, or near there sees this. There's a company called Steg Pegz, that makes a really neat little Farkle for bikes that helps you hold onto them better, with your legs. I've tried them on a friend of mine's bike, and they make one hell of a difference. In order to get them to make one for the 950, 990 Adventures or SE, they need somebody to bring their bike in and let them do measurements so they can build them. I live on the other side of the globe, so it would be rather inconvenient, to say the least, to get my 990 Adventure to them. Hoping somebody sees this and is willing to take your bike in and see what can happen.

    I know that @RibRoy and others have made their own versions as another option...

    One of my friends also made a pair for his 990A. He said that his were fantastic.

    Really easy to make for the SE at least. And they are good, too good actually. I'm so used to control the bike with my calves nowadays that it feels unsafe to ride without.

    Around 3.5 hours to make including dealing with corroded hardware and a parts store run. sub $25 project if you have some scrap metal laying around.

    You know, after looking at that, that should be pretty easy to make. I'm on it. Thanks for the pics. Big help.

    You're welcome. The inward bend is 7°, put's it nicely flush with the plastics. 4mm aluminium.

    Door rubber stoppers works really well.

    Anti-vibration rubber pad, I believe is the english word for these. Sticky and a bit soft rubber, so the grip is good. No spinning. A co-SE enthusiast uses split ice-hockey pucks, seems to work well.
    I'd imagine skateboard wheels could work too.

    I used generic longboard wheels off amazon. They're fixed in place and do not rotate.

    Hey @albani thankyou for the insight and drawings! :beer

    I've mucked around from your start point and developed my own version to connect with my Sidi Crossfires (Size 45's) so that I can get good connection when flatfooting the pegs and gives me some room when I'm up on the balls of my feet...
    Took a lot of friggin around but reckon they're just about perfect :)

    Really appreciate you sharing your design data, love this forum and generous inmates!!!

    Did you make new threads inside the rear peg bolts?

    Will be doing a set for the SE soon.
    Really could have used them up the desert the other week.

    Nah, simply used both the passenger peg mounts as datum points rather than the subframe mount on the RHS

    And it's VERY difficult to find longer countersink M10 fine pitch bolts for the subframe. ^^^

    Not that difficult :)
    Only needed 1 for the rear on the RHS as it’s set about 25mm inboard.
