So I own a wondeful '04 Wee and the factory foot pegs stick right into the zipper of my Aerostich Roadcrafter one-piece leg zipper and catch my leg when trying to plant my foot at a stop.

This has caused me to almost dump my bike several times.

Are they any foot pegs out there that are shorter and don't stick out as far, OR are not pointed and will not jam into the zipper?

Thanks everybody.

I've never had a problem with my Roadcrafter suit on the last 4 bikes I've owned, but when I bought my V, it had a mod that addressed an issue similar to your's.

On the left side, the PO had a problem with his pant leg catching on the bleed screw for the clutch slave cylinder. He installed a piece of clear tubing over the top of the bleed screw and zip-ty'ed the tubing to the clutch hose, eliminating the catch point.

Semper V,

Well.....I've been riding her for a few years now, please expand on this technique. Do you put your foot forward of the peg while still moving and then plant down as stopping?

I seem to put my feet down in line with the peg and they stick right into the Roadcrafter zipper and catch.

Thanks,
John

I looked at the Roadcrafter suit on the site because I wasn't familiar with it. I would suggest a velcro tab that wraps around to the rear of the leg. That may close up the opening that is getting caught. Most sewing machines will punch through the material or if you don't have one, get a tailor/seamstress (SP) to do it. Just explain what the problem is to them.
