Passenger foot peg vibration

My wife doesn't ride much, but when she does she complains about the vibrations from the foot pegs. She says the left one is the worst. Anyone else getting this negative feedback? Has anyone else addressed the issue? Just looking for some information. Hopefully something that worked before I go in blind and screw something up. Thanks,

I forget, which side has the rubber piece on it? Was supposed to reduce vibration iirc.

That was on right side on my bike, had to be removed to install bag racks.

It's an issue. I installed aftermarket pegs from Twisted Throttle which were extended 50mm for more legroom, but then both pegs had some vibration. Wife put some cushioned insoles in her boots which helped some.

It also helps to have sliders so you can rest your feet there while she stretches her legs occasionally in between stops.
