Tools
  • Snap Ring / E-Ring pliers (needlenose pliers are a common if less easy substitute).
  • 13mm hex side or socket wrench (for the bracket).
Steps
  1. Gently spread the gap in the retaining E-ring using the pliers until it slides over the end of the pin, and remove it.
    This clip is on the lower end of the footpeg retaining pin.
  2. Pull the retaining pin up and out.
    Hold and pull the pin spring and footpeg as the pin comes out.
  3. (Optional) Remove the bracket
    1. Loosen the upper bolts mounting the footpeg brackets to the frame.
      S-platform: Reaching these bolts from the rear is easiest since they are on the inside of the frame.
    2. Loosen the lower bolts mounting the footpeg brackets to the frame.
      S-platform: These face the motor and allow very low overhead.
      A side wrench is recommended, and a ratcheting version preferred.
    3. Remove the bolts and then the brackets.
