I hope this is the correct forum. I just want to let you (and future riders) know - a wet foot and a clutch pedal is dangerous. There is no tread on the brake or clutch pedal and my foot slipped off the clutch mid-stroke because my shoe was wet. First I screamed the "S" word, then almost did it in my pants before I got the clutch disengaged.

Be careful out there!!

Get a can of spray on rubberizing
Actually, I just saw an infomercial for a spray-on rubber stuff that kept a row boat with a screen door as a bottom from sinking... LOL :) I think the pedal covers from SlingMods would work quite nice :)

Saw some traction tape at an auto parts store yesterday that may work good too. I was looking for some slip on rubber pads. No luck there.
So will Sling Mods pedal overs keep shoes from sliding?

Several guys around here use the spray on there razors and SXS. Like a rhino lining spray on.
I'm familiar with the Rhino lining for truck beds. VERY good stuff. Yes, that would really work for the SS, but I think SLingMods pedal covers would do the trick and look pretty awesome.

Actually at first I was thinking of the U.S. Navy Non-Skid strips and use them to cover the pedals. If you are/were a Sailor, you know what I'm talking about. :)

What kind of shoe were you wearing?

I check carefully on pic and the 4 tooth in each corner seems to be a big problem with my lace when you change your foot to a nother pedal
I thought the same post install but nothing has occurred or been an issue. Actually serves as a grip as well. They are very small. Plus the predrilled holes allow me to center mount and remove the clips if i decide to.
