Has anyone added the Magnum foot pads? Any considerable difference than the normal skid pads?

Just asking because my feet have been killing me lately, but $48 bucks plus shipping seems steep for 2 rubber pads.

It is! Someone else on here did some. they used a piece of foam they bought from a garden store for kneeling on, I think. Cut it into sections, drilled a couple holes in them, and used plastic ties to connect them. They work great, for a FRACTION of the cost. 50 bucks...gimme a break!

Just make them yourself!

Definitly not worth $50!

They would be very easy to make!

Sure--use kneeling pad. I attached with plastic wire ties. If your feet hurt that bad--maybe you need double thickness. Also try about 20 percent less air pressure in tires. I also put rubber bumpers at the bottom where the handlebar attaches. They absorb shock from the bumps. Bigger premium soft cushioned motorcycle hand grips--same idea.

Get one with a steering wheel then you won't get jolts from the handle bars. Go to Sam's Club and get the playground mat they sell for kids to fall on. It is tough and soft at the same time.
