freakazoids-

so where should i go to find some solid mount footpegs...cheap and easy....universal bolt on affairs. tanner set me up with his trick exhaust for the 350 purestock and i had to change my whole rearset setup, which is cool 'cause they were way too high and...well, rearset. i have some modern brackets that are off a kawi or a honda and need pegs. right now, i've wankered up some cairrage bolts, but they look full on wanker, especially next to the tanner/marshall/branson exhaust.

thanks-
timothy

Tim,
I think Aaron may have a shit load of basic solid pegs.
If not I can make pegs to your specs. Nothing fancy...just a hollow aluminum rod with a mounting hole for the bolt and some knurling on the outside.

we remount on the passenger mounts with a new hole. mount the pipe lower, with an isolator and then mount the footpegs on the same spot. if that works for ya. id click a pic of mine, but, um, well, its not together.

jb-

thanks, i just may place an order for/before frontierland depending if you're coming. i guess you'd need the measurements for the through bolt and the OD of mounting hole?

clancypants-

yeah, but the pipes didn't want to hang low and i've already lost the portion of the bracket that held the passenger pegs to make room. the pipes are mounted to the lowest bolt on whats left of that OEM bracket.

ya'll rock.

FWIW, I've seen guys use the grind pegs from a BMX style bicycle. You know, the pegs that stick out of the front and rear axles so you can grind a box or rail or lip...

TT,
Pretty much all I need is the OD of the bolt you will be mounting with. I usually recommmend a 10mm Socket head, head goes inside the peg with about a 3/4" thick flange inside the peg to hold it. 8mm will do in most cases also.
I've usually got spares lying around.

we drill a new hole in that bracket to mount the pipes and rearsets. if you have issues with them being to high or far back, then yud probably not like this setup. we hack the bracket up too. or cut it completely off then weld the remaining sa bracket to the frame. you probably have something worked out already. everones different.

Hey ttilghman, I had a whole long reply about my setup and my last weekend at Shannonville with pictures and everything. But when I hit the post reply button it kicked me to the log in page and it all disappeared. So I'm just going to post a link to my rear set pictures that I use on my race bike. They fold up, but if you want more info contact me at [email protected] I don't feel like typing it out all over again. Here's the link, might be something you can use.


Cheers, BANDIT

bandit-

yeah, i like your setup, very nice powdercoat. it's pretty much what i had and am redoing. before, i had R6 rearsets attached on top to one bar clamp (kuyrakyan or whatever sells really nice P-clamps) and on bottom to the OEM passenger peg bracket. the R6 has really big brackets though and wouldn't allow for my new exhaust and were a little to high and tight. i have new, smaller brackets which move the pegs down and foward just enough to fit the new exhaust and make the ergos fit me better. thing is i just have the brackets without pegs, i can move the brake side peg and lever onto the new setup, but the clutch side is looking for a peg.

thanks-

quote:Curious how thick are those plates? Alex
'Bout a 1/2 inch

The reason the plates are so thick is two fold:
1, they were throwing it out at work, so I got it free <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
2, with the factory bracket set inboard of the frame I wanted a little more clearance between the rearset and the swingarm for the brake and shift linkage :)

rosko-

i think i've just got the rearsets sorted to go along with tanner's trick exhaust. i've just got to install a longer brake rod and i should be good. (brake cable to come this winter along with a rear wheel and hopefully better rear susp.)

and damn right we have some riding to do. looks like alex and a new purestock 350 rider will be in my garage on saturday and i should have some more free time on sunday afternoon. feel free to break out of the confines either day, bring some VinMoto folks. on sunday i could meet in Harriman state park and show you a few of the twisties in the area.

best. tt
