Pillion Peg Removal (08/09)

I want to remove the pillion pegs but my local Honda garage is charging the best part of £100 in labour to remove them because of the subframe.

Is there a guide anywhere on here on how to remove them yourself?

Thank you.

I did and could not find a thing. Therefore can someone please be kind enough to put a link to the relevant thread?

Thanks.

Re: Pillion Peg Removal (08/09)

Send a PM to Deathace for further advice. He posted this on 1000rr.net: "the easiest way to do it is remove the tail unit and then split the subframe you then unbolt the pillion hangers and bolt the subframe back together and put the seat unit back on.

Best with 2 people but can be done with 1 person and rope to hold the back end up"

h82loze from 1000rr.net posted this:

"Here is what I did:
1. Remove rear seat or seat cowl
2. Remove front seat
3. Remove fender and rear cowl
4. Unscrew bolt and braces holding subframe together
5. Loosen the 2 bolts that hold the subframe to the frame (do one side at a time)
6. Lift the battery tray up on the side you loosened the subframe to gain access to the passenger pegs
7. Remove the passenger pegs
8. Tighten the subframe back up on that side
9. Repeat steps 5-8 on the other side
10. Re-install the rest of the parts in the reverse order that you removed them
11. Done

Took me around 30 minutes, but I had removed my rear several times before I did this (once for my FE install and then again for my CA install-poor planning on my part not ordering both at the same time). So I had no problems pulling everything off and putting it back on."

It's all relative. It isn't easy but looks great when done with no bolt holes exposed like on the previous blades. If you are going to be wanting to remove and reinstall the pegs on occasion you might want to buy the Sato street hooks.

Re: Pillion Peg Removal (08/09)

Nah, don't do pillion. They look crap anyway and they WILL NOT be going back on!

Re: Pillion Peg Removal (08/09)

I took mine off last week Gaz and wish I had seen this before, as I took the tank and battery tray out to get to mine, this look's quite a bit easier oh well they are off now although the bikes still in bits, as I get them back from the powder coater's today. I have been known on occasion to take a pillion, so rather than have the hassle of putting them on again at a later date, I thought the pillion peg's and rearset's in black would make them blend in a bit better.

Here are some pic's of what mine look's like at the moment.

Gaz

I took mine off with the split subframe method, and it isn't really that bad.

There are a couple of gotchas, the underbelly colour coded piece isn't that easy to get off.

If you did the tail tidy yourself, you are almost there anyway mate.

Shoot me a PM if you need any info.

Re: Pillion Peg Removal (08/09)

I'm going to get my mate (who mates Stainless and Ali stuff) to make me a couple of Sato style brackets (but without the big 'O' holes - so more discrete) so I can have the pegs off, but if needed put them back on. Just need to find somewhere to powder coat them

Regards

Richard

Yeah! I'm not looking forward to putting it all back together tomorrow. I have had that GT for about seven years now and I have just bought a Gary fisher aswell last year, great bikes.
