PostSubject: Removing the passenger pegs   Tue Jan 30, 2018 10:09 pm

So, I removed the passenger peg bracket from the right side, and filled the resulting open bolt holes with black washers and new bolts. It looks great, but I can't remove the one on the left side because it also serves as the bracket for the exhaust. I have the Mistral high-pipe slip-on, and it seems it could be easily attached by a bracket attached to one of the bungee hook bobbins that is bolted into the frame.

Does anyone know if such a bracket/hanger is available? I don't have enough skill or equipment to make something myself. I think I read in another thread that beetle has made one -- I wonder if this is a thing that I could buy?

Here are some pics of the right and left sides (also showing off the lovely new Rizoma black foot-pegs).

That's perfect! I was thinking to attach it with the front one, but the rear seems to work really well. Is it rubber mounted or just directly bolted on? I was wondering if rigidly mounting it would cause vibration in the seat. Also, do I see some kind of additional strap on the front mounting point?

You should sell this as a kit. I predict you will have at least one sale Smile

I've sent you a PM, but I'll post here as well.

I have several versions, depending on whether I have the stock midpipe or the Arrow Ti midpipe. The carbon fibre hanger doesn't stop the pipe from moving horizontally, so I have a secondary hanger to stop it moving. Eventually I will have spring loops attached to the Ti midpipe and Mistral so the secondary hanger can be removed.

Next time you come this way bring your Ti pipes and we'll get those collars sorted.

Under control. Ratty has made some for me and will swap them out, as well as adding loops to the midpipe.

Hell, I use my pillion footrests to save stopping for a stretch. They're essential, IMHO.

I was going to make the same comment, but you beat me to it, Dave. I hang my heels on the rear pegs just to put my body in a different position for awhile. I would never even think of removing them!

Here is what DÄS Mototec in Germany offers (but not for those high pipes):

Here is where I ended up on this. I’m super happy with the result! I found this hanger and I mounted it to a rubber mount that bolts into the existing frame threaded hole. It’s very solid but rubber mounted to quell vibration. I found some black hex bolts to fit in the passenger bracket holes, and used black (painted!) washers. I think it looks great!
