After a handful of 400+ mile days the wife knees are a little sore, so I've been looking into some extenders for her. So far I have found a couple choices.

I like this set because you use the factory rubber pegs.

But I like the adjustability of these.

 :notsure:
I'm sure someone has some input on them or other options.

Thanks for your reply. I've only had the Versys for a week and the wife finds the seat very slippy and struggles to stop herself coming forward under light braking. I have seen the ones on Ebay but I thought they were a bit expensive.

Another option to help with sliding forward on the seat would be something like this:

Combined with pegs that are better situated, that should help quite a bit, I'd think.

Lead me not into temptation as I can find my own way

My wife reckons the tribord seat cover is invaluable and she used to complain about sliding around a lot on the pillion. Since we got the seat cover she swears by it.  :028:

Ebay for cheapies from China.... or MFW Vario for Premium pegs. Search my posts or MFW and somewhere on the site there are pix of my MFW pillion pegs. I'm very happy with these (precision, fit, design, appearance) but they cost a lot.

 I'm running end of line cheapies up front but I had to do a bit of extra fab with spacers to make them fit the way they should. I also don't know if they'll stand up to my 240 lbs long term... only about 1000 of use km so far.

+1 on the Triboseat. Ruth initially had problems with sliding around but this tweak fixed it for not much money.

Where do they get the names for these colours?

I've recently parted with my Versys because the passenger footrests were too high for my wife to climb on board easily following a hip operation. We did try lower pegs, however as she is not very tall, this caused problems with reaching the pegs comfortably when she was seated. The ones that I tried were from "Project D" in the U.S.

I realised that the only real way forward for me was to change the bike, as it was primarily used for days out two - up and my solo holiday trips, as I ride the old classics for other duties.

Drastic, but necessary!
