The 919 doesn't typically have buzzy pegs. Check your engine mounts.
Would an exhaust make a difference on buzzy pegs? I noticed more vibrations after swapping exhaust from D&D to Delks, wonder if I shot my mounts in the process trying to pry the old exhaust off (is that even possible??)
I don't know if they are buzzy compare to another bike... since this is my first bike. But I will check for engine mounts and maybe try to clean, adjust and lube the chain to. But i don't think it is a unusual buzz since a couple of 919 owner experience this.
I saw a couple of boots with a vibration absorbing foot bed. Anyone have a opinion on this or actually have that kind of boots.
Watch how much pressure you put on the rear break if you go with something much thicker. I've tried the Thor 50/50 MX half boot and those didn't really help much. The tabs broke off after a month too, so I can't recommend them. Luckily the place I got them had a 60 day guarantee.
I don't think many people are riding their 919 long distances because otherwise the vibration complaints would be more common. I can ride an hour or two without any concern. When I rode 1000+ miles in a day for my Iron Butt ride the vibrations were very challenging. I moved my feet around a lot to try and counter the vibes but it was mostly no use. I scuffed my stock foot peg paint up pretty good on both sides. Thicker, winter gloves did help with the handlebar vibrations.
thanks for the comments guys. I think i'll try boots with thick soles next summer and see how it feels!
For the buzzzzy 919 here is what i've done so far: Manic Salamander bar ends, dampens almost all the vibes., I put foam pads under the seat where it touches the tank and the frame, No more vibes from there.
