    Quick question, I am trying to remove my rider footpegs to replace them with something else. I got the “C-clip” off at the end of the pin which holds the peg in. But for the life of me, I can’t remove the pin?!? I tried various techniques of trying to tap it out with a mallet etc, but it feels like it is really stuck. Not sure why it even needs a C-clip to hold it in place. It is pretty much a new bike, so maybe the tolerances are so tight that it makes it difficult to remove. Anyhow, just seeing if anyone had any tips.

    I know this isn’t any help on the stuck pin… but what foot peg do you plan to put on ?

    Note: on another bike I have (Indian Scout) I put on different foot pegs (Joker pegs) and changed out the pins with a small bolt and nut).


    small mechanic steel hammer….and put more love! 🙂

    they are stuck big time,


    The footpeg pins are ribbed at the end and so then press into the frame. You need to tap them out from underneath after removing the c-clip. then tap them back down once you install the new pegs.  I just did this on the weekend


    How can I install motocross pegs? I’ve been trying to find the correct mount size. Is there a compatible alternative like a Duke or KDX or something? I know most of them are too wide and the spring system is different.


    The footpegs for a Ducati Scrambler would be nice, but I don’t know if it would be compatible

    Ali alternative :


    Yes. Exactly!


    What did you guys use to get the c clip pins out?


    after removing the safty ring

    only Plastik hammer with moving ball inside /& flat grain

    a towel around the alu frame to avoid scratches

    also used before some spray wax to  pre lubricate

    after approx 149taps of elbow grease  it moved out 1mm from here its only a few hits…

    btw in case you install the racing footpegs the spring needs to flipped vs the stock position

    important to use a bit sandpaper on the pin before putting back !!!


    The rear pegs for me didnt want to let loose with the hammer like the front ones did, seemed like they just absorbed it.

    I had to pull out a hugh pair of channel locks and wrap the teeth with insulation tape (no scratches).

    Came out in a  jiff.
