You give me hope. I don't really know much about swapping out bars (difficulty and cost). So I'll do some research on that and maybe that will help. It seems that my hip position and leg angles are the primary culprit. Excuse my ignorance, but what benefit does the rubber pegs provide? (vibration reduction? It wouldn't really change ergonomics right?) Someone here mentioned $160 for the seat concepts seat which is reasonable- I'll look more into that. Do you have pics or additional comments on that particular seat?6', 185 lbs here and a body seriously abused racing motocross (knees, back, and wrists). I put a Seat Concepts seat on mine as well as different bars, Pro Grip gel Superbike grips, FZ6 rubber footpegs, and an MRA Touring screen. The setup is great for me now. I rode the bike 800 miles and back to COTA in Austin TX without any major back issues.
