Peg Swap / Peg Flip Mod
The Peg Swap Mod is merely putting the brake side passenger peg on the clutch side, this mod will move the pegs forward a few inches giving the pasenger a little more leg room.
The Peg Flip Mod is taking the passenger pegs and turning them upside down. Doing this mod will move your pegs down a few inches and out a few inches, for my application this mod seems to be the best fit.
For this project I will need the following hardware (all high grade and all stainless):
- 4qty 3/8x3 bolts
- 4qty 3/8 coupling nuts
- 4qty 3/8 spilt ring washers
- 4qty 3/8 flange nuts
Additional Tools needed are:
- Blue locktite
- 5/16 drill bit
- 3/8 tap
- 12mm socket
- 4 socket extender
- 9/16 socket
- 9/16 wrench
- 5/8 wrench
Start by using a 12mm socket to remove the current passenger pegs. There are two bolts on each peg that must be loosened.
I found that I needed to use a 4 extender to remove the brake side peg.
Next take the Drill and the 5/16 drill bit and drill out the existing holes for the peg bolts
Then you will use the tap on both the bracket holes and the peg mounting holes to create a 3/8 thread in all areas. One thing to look out for when completing this step is to ensure that the treads are cut parallel to each other and not cut at any funny angles. If you dont have a tap I would suggest just drilling out the holes with a 7/16 drill bit. That would be the easier step I just preferred the other method.
If you are simply doing the Peg Swap Mod you merely set up your bracket like this and bolt on. You may require a 5/8 wrench to hold onto the coupling nut.
This is the part where you will need to use the blue locktite. Make sure to place the 3/8 locking washers and the 3/8 nuts to the back of bolts to ensure everything stays in place. Once everything has been bolted on the Mod would look like this.
If you are doing the Peg Flip Mod you will need to first remove the clip on the pin holding the peg in place. I put my peg in a vise and used a pair or dykes to push the pin off.
Then remove the pin, turn the peg around and reinsert the pin and clip. At first the peg will look like it can no longer reach the hole but I assure you that if you squeeze down the rubber just a little it will.
At this point if you are doing the Peg Flip Mod you must cut off the U shaped bracket now, that way it will clear the factory exhaust on the brake side
Next assemble the peg, bolts and coupling nuts and bolt them on the same way as you
would in the Peg Swap Mod
