Don't take them off, they save the pegs... I took off the OEM pegs due to the road eating on them and put some on with about 1-1/2" drag pegs... The right one is about 1/2 gone but the left is probably still 1" long... Boy will them suckers cut you in the garage or shed if you scrape a leg or something on'em...
The hard stuff is what will get you if you drag it hard in a turn, the pegs will lever up...
PS-One other thing is to lean off the inside (like the crotch rocket riders) and it will keep the bike up streighter and not drag as quick...
Have a good one...Old Dog...

bstew7890 I scraped on a turn once but I could swear it was the center stand and not the foot peg that touched the pavement.

Chuck A. I have done some hairpen corners at some fairly high speeds, I'm talking tires squealing corners, and never scraped a peg yet.

VN750Rider/Jerry I always drag the pegs when riding on twisty roads, until the feelers are worn down to almost nothing (which increases the lean angle even further), then replace them. If you are a decent rider this is completely safe, If you have stock tires. I have no idea what, if any, effect non stock tire sizes might have on safe lean angles

CW-4 Just put two little training wheels on the pegs. Reduces drag and increases MPG.
