Hi Guys
I'm a newby on the LT - have a 08 . I'm not keen on the stock poot pegs , the large rubber surface means makes it difficult for me to move my feet into a comfortable position for the gear change . Is it possible to fit alternate pegs say like the GT or GS ones .

Yes...there are peg lowering kits, floorboards available via aftermarket. See FAQ on this site.
Might just be your boots. Do you have boots with heels? A flat soled boot might be the simple answer.

Yes your on the right lines.
I do have heels on my boots so that when there pushed forward to the peg the gear shift is only just on my toes and gives me a weak shift ( if you know what I mean. )

My bike had the floorboards on it when I purchased it earlier this year. I'm not a big fan of them. I like to be able to rotate my ankles/feet up and down while riding so, I switched back to the factory pegs.
I have two pair of riding boots; one has heels and the other is more flat soled. The flat soles are probably more comfortable but I am also used to the ones with heels as well. Just a matter of hiking my foot up onto the heel for shifting. It has become second nature to me over time.

Thanks for the info guys.
I don't think I will get away with floorboards - I can manage -just- at the moment but I think I'll look out for a boot that has less or no heel.

Last year when I bought my LT I was coming from a cruiser with floorboards. The boots I was wearing were "logger style" with heels. I was always getting them cought on the footpeg when coming to a stop. I thought I was going to drop it a few times. The solution as simple as others have posted. I got different pair of boots with a much flatter sole and the problem was solved. The flatter sole also allows me to move my feet around more on the pegs.

I was a logger for a number of years and still wear logger style boots, but I've never had a pair that had hooks on the heels! :)

Dave,

One option for you are Darius Floorboards which have several options for the LT driver and passenger depending on leg length and whether you prefer flat or tilted for the shift foot.
