Passenger Pegs Question

Recommended Posts

mjh937

R&G, Evotech and Vagabond all make passenger peg delete kits.  I am sure there are others.  Some guys here have made the own bracket to hold the brake fluid reservoir and used plastic plugs from an auto parts store to fill the holes.  There are a lot of options.

I like the item linked above because it mounts from behind and would fill more of the space, nice and clean. has to something out there for the 07...

Got it...I misunderstood the question.  I have not seen what your are looking for but hopefully somebody else has some ideas.  I am curious to see what comes up.

Yeah same, maybe someone on here has the tools (and the time) to make something like this happen.

That would be a hole... lot simpler

 

but the OCD in me thinks an expensive overcomplicated option is mandatory, something like the link in my original post.

3D print something maybe. I see some libraries in my area offer this service where you pay only for the material used in producing the part. You'd just have to have the skill to create the program to make the part. Windows 10 has this program in the menu but this kind of thing is way over my head.

I just put a couple nice domed allen head bolts in mine, you could use black ones if you wanted.

It is illegal if you carry a passenger.  Of course the reason most people remove them is because they do not carry passengers...

You could purchase a set of those flexible plastic cutting boards and make something that would cover that space pretty easily.  Paint it black to match the bike; make sure you fasten it under the factory plastic and utilize the passenger pegs bolts and no one would notice it wasn't an aftermarket/factory piece unless they were looking real close.

More specifically, its illegal if the bike is otherwise equipped to carry a passenger. So in Texas, you could delete the pegs but only if you also deleted the rear seat. I was just curious. Sorry for the thread jack.

I also bought the vagabond kit. I was going to make my on bracket b4 I found that kit. I think it looks really clean. I ordered these. Less than. I figure for less than $20 why not. R&G wanted something like $75 for them?!!  Should be here next week. I’m curious to see if they will look good or not. Hope that helps.

If only they had a crystal ball that could tell them who will or won't have an incident over their pegs instead of handing out tickets over "assumptions" that something could or would go wrong. But then we would be living in a "Minority Report" kind of world. 😳

I just pulled them off and put the bolts back in.   And bolted the rear fluid resivior to one of the existing spots. No kinks in the line. And it’s worked great for 1000 miles.

@Mad, that looks good.  Is it real carbon fiber or is the just a finish?  I like your heel guards, do you have a link to where you got them?

Thanks!

Both the heel guard and the bracket are real carbon fiber in aeronautical grade epoxy! And I made them myself
