Looking for better V-Strom footpegs

Anybody like to recommend footpegs for a '05 DL650. I find the stock ones slick as snot when wet and muddy. I'd really like to find some nice big cleated ones with rubber isolated mounts. Any suggestions?

I put some Fastways on my DL1000 and they were brilliant. They don't have a rubber insert for road use but I imagine something could be made up fairly easily if you felt it necessary.

The system is pretty clever in that the pegs are generic, able to be adapted to numerous different models by way of a tapered collar and adjustable camber bolt. The pair I ordered came with a collar designed to fit an XR50/80/100. In order to get the collar to fit the V-Strom I took it to the local engineering workshop and got them to machine 2mm off the ends. The inside diameter of the collar is a great match for the V-Strom's standard pins (although you will need to replace your existing pins if they aren't perfectly straight).

From there it was just a matter of following the instructions in order to get them mounted. The only drawback is that the camber bolt (adjusted by way of different size shims) doesn't contact the frame completely, but the footing is still very solid. The fit is surprisingly good for something designed for an XR50.

These pegs offer an amazing amount of grip when sitting and the difference when standing on the pegs is incredible. Not only is traction improved but the extra width gives a lot more confidence and comfort when up on the pegs.

I also need to do this.

The Fastway's look great! I really like my IMS SS Pro-pegs on my DRZ and wondered if there was a model of their's that I could make work ??

Touratech make some (that are currently sold-out) that look 'OK' but not great....

Thanks for the info. I'm really surprised that IMS and Fastway don't put the DL in their applications list.

I used the Fastways on my DL1000 but you do have to grind about 1 MM off the collar to fit. I also have a DL650 that I used the touratech pegs. They are pretty nice to and angle out a little which makes standing up on the pegs a little easier. The fastways look better and function very well too. Both are about the same cost. Both are better than the stockers IMHO.
