Just fitted a set of Oberon footpegs to replace the not so grippy standard pegs. Found them online and ordered them from Autolive. Excellent service and a great product. I accidentally ordered the rear pegs! doh!, so the block that comes with them was the wrong size to fit the front, I contacted them by email and was sent the correct blocks which arrived the next day, even before I'd returned the wrong ones. They have a good selection of pegs which are currently advertised for the 1199 (but will fit the 899) in various colours, I went for black which I think look good. Easy to fit too. If, as I was doing you are searching around for replacement footpegs worth having a look at the link below. You can get cheaper on eBay (from China), but I decided on quality and have used Oberon stuff before.

I am in no way connected to Autolive, but after the service I received, I though it was worth giving them a plug.

They look nice and are good build quality.
I was going to put some of these on but have decided to put on new rearsets for a slightly higher footpeg position.
The only qualm I have with this bike is that alot of weight is put onto your wrists by virtue of the ergonomics. I'm hoping that new rearsets will fix this as it has on previous bikes.

what is the benefit of switching out rearsets? Is there a functional gain besides increased reliability? Or is it just spending much more money than needed when you could get footpegs only for street use?

Thanks in advance!

It gives you the option to adjust your sitting position to more aggressive one ...for track use mainly

I installed the Rizoma RRC. 12 points of adjustability, smoother operation due to needle bearings, minimal weight savings, plus they look a tremendous amount better. They also include the reversible gear shift lever.

Hi All,

Can someone please explain how you should remove the stock pegs so the replacement ones can be installed? What order works (i.e. spring, bolt + clip)?

There is a clip at the end of the bolt that connects the peg to the rearsets. Can I re-use that one or did you replace it?

Thanks.

Not sure about the spring, since I have fixed pegs, but you can definitely reuse the spring clip at the end of the bolt providing you are careful not to damage it when you remove it. I used a small screwdriver to pop them out. Just make sure you put your hand behind it, as they do have a tendency to go flying.

The Oberon foot pegs are very easy to install . You take the clip out which is to keep the pin in place . Push the pin out and hold the stock peg so you don't lose the spring. Put the spring back and the new peg and push the pin through it . Secure with pin with the clip . Done .
Oberon's come in two pieces . You can screw them together and install or install the peace that goes to the rear set first and then bolted together . This way you can turn the grippy part of the peg pointing the way you want it . I put red thread lock on the bolt to prevent it from vibrating loose . Hope this help

Excellent mcouper99 and Ugrin !!

Will carefully remove the clip. Am installing Rizoma's though so the Oberon trick may not work, but I'll try.

Update: both clips flew away... LOL. (Just get them in advance and break the existing ones, they are cheap) But the spring didn't! This is the way to go and is 10m for both pegs. The Rizoma's also let you 'angle' the pegs because they are 2-piece so you can turn them a bit and get maximum grip!
