passenger peg
« on: September 28, 2018, 02:53:19 am »
One of my passenger pegs does not stay up. I haven't looked close but feels like there must be a small thin spring piece that gave out. I looked quick at Murph"s and did not see anything. Is that item something from a dealer only? Thanks

Not knowing what year your bike is...on a 2012...the "Stopper" is PN 32085-0046...although, if this is the part, one might wonder how it became missing...or, not working.  They are cheap...not sure if it is available elsewhere...but, at $2.50 each through the dealer...one doesn't have to look long to eat up any savings.  Guess it could be the coil spring...as well.  Like I said, these part numbers and the link are for a 2012 model.

Good luck!

If you've ever had the footpeg off, you may have lost the ball/spring.
Or, it just may be gummed up from roadfilm/etc and need's cleaning.

Could probably blast it out with WD-40 on the bike, but best to remove, check the parts, and clean....

Ride safe, Ted

Thanks for the input. It's a 2011. I'll take a closer look at it.

Finally took peg off. The ball is stuck in. Have it soaking with PB penetrating fluid. If not free tomorrow I might drill a small hole from the back and tap the ball out that way.

Got it taken care of. I drilled a hole from the back, the ball came out easy but the spring was very corroded in. When the spring finally came out, I cleaned things up and works like new now.  The bike has 125k+ miles and really has not had a passenger during that time. Not surprising that it got a little corroded during that time.
