My way to remove the passenger pegs

Recommended Posts

This is how I made the carbon fiber bracket for the rear reservoir 

 

I create a (strangely sturdy ) prototipe with a pice of cardboad piece IMG_20180912_180155_750.thumb.jpg.f6ef13dd5f6840f7b67833b90d4bc4d1.jpg

Than I copy the profile on a piece of paper and afte some tweaking it's is the result IMG_20180912_180152_884.thumb.jpg.000b85921c9d54b66eba1f670ec38d26.jpg

I create and cut a piece of flat carbon fiber and the shape is here IMG_20180912_180211_772.thumb.jpg.f1a442aa9add5eebe93973232f237eb0.jpg

Using two nails I checked the fit IMG_20180912_180200_293.thumb.jpg.0163759d613c6724e45de9ad1b4c3521.jpg

and after some corrections the final piece is here ( paint needed and the original screws are too long )IMG_20180912_180148_179.thumb.jpg.3a80a782f5f4e5d694cf3110c3c4d122.jpgIMG_20180912_180149_975.thumb.jpg.3d7c5085a13e527cecfbb17b92898039.jpgIMG_20180912_180145_469.thumb.jpg.eb00a688a0ff559089357d93d42bd5ad.jpgIMG_20180912_180142_396.thumb.jpg.79fd30633654d2148222c43ade69e85e.jpgIMG_20180912_180139_592.thumb.jpg.cb0ffd555951c45245b3a0edb811bb02.jpg

I was trying to give it a clear coat but the spray can decided not to cooperate and now the bracket is Matt hahaha 

I will make it glossy to match the heal guards and the rear mud guard I'm making

Looks like it might be prone to vibration at certain speeds - take a look (or touch it lightly) at it now and again at different bike speeds and engine speeds, and see if it's vibrating. If so, look for mini-bubbles under the cap.

 

If you start feeling that it's getting mushy in your back brake, this might be the cause. Unlikely, but possible - the bubbles should be able to work their way up to the reservoir and not cause a problem.

 

If you do find vibration, I'd find a different way to secure it. Note that a few of us have used the reflector bracket on the front fork to secure it. It works great, but you do have to do a simply modification on it.

 

Good luck.

Is quite a rigid piece but I will keep it in mind and a simple perpendicular reinforcement in the back site will surely be able to fix it

Nice, like the carbon look, appears the reservoir is not level but simple adjustment. Perhaps have a matching allen bolt in front with nut in rear. I have black tape on reservoir front side, but backside still visible to clean up the look with my Hord reservoir bracket. Now thinking I may  change the heal guards to carbon.

In the photo It's all hand tight just to be sure not scratch the carbon before painting 

I'm quite sure that your rigth rearsets can easily fit the oem heel guard( if the oem works a carbon one can too ) , just try it ! But I'm not sure about the left one

I like your rear-sets and fender extender, what brand and where did you get them? @elmo

fzar,

Rear sets- Work fine and suggest blue Loctite at all connections , been down a few times requiring peg replacement, but they are available and have extras now.  Pic shows peg at farthest back and down position.

Fender Extender -  Used epoxy / clamps for bonding together, its messy and repainted existing and hugger.
