Recently ordered the Husqvarna 701 Aluminum foot peg set. I attempted to remove the stock footpegs by removing the c-clip, and trying my hardest to slide out the small rod keeping it in but it does not seem to want to budge.
Anyone have any experience on the proper way to uninstall the stock pegs and install the factory accessory pegs?
They might have been installed with loctite by your dealer. The best way to break the bond of loctite is to apply high heat such as via a soldering iron on the peg mount. You can google or yt it for more info on removing loctite.
Hello. I installed mine a couple of weeks ago. They are just kept in place with a serrated area when completely inside. To get them out (prior removing exhaust on one side and gears on the other) use a punch and a hammer. One or two Hits will loosen them. Don’t be afraid. (Remember taking the securing thingy on the other side, a small screwdriver will do the trick).
And lastly. You don’t need to remove all the other items. Just enough for hammer to work.
