2 part grip foot pegs rubber and metal

The Yamaha Super Tenere has 2-material foot pegs - when you ride seated the feet rest on rubber to isolate vibration, and when you stand up the rubber part retracts and your boot soles grip steel grips.

Does anyone in the aftermarket make this type of peg to fit KLR's?

The SW Motech pegs that are sold through Twisted Throttle have a removable rubber pad. One 10mm bolt holds the rubber pad on top of the metal 'off-road' peg. I tried them out and have been happy so far, but I found that I usually just leave the rubber pad off. It does help reduce vibrations when I know im going to be on the highway.

If memory serves me, several of the Suzuki DS bikes had rubber pegs with a metal cage on the perimeter. I'm almost positive the DRZ had that setup, and I'm pretty sure it came on a couple others. Might be worth it to spend some time scouring ebay for used parts.
