    Rubber foot pegs

    I have a set of rubber rider pegs to replace the originals. Seems like to cut the old ones off is a given. But i hessitate to do that without knowing how to install the new ones. Any advice?

    It should be very much like how grips are installed. Use some cheap hair spray from a dollar store and coat the frame mount, then quickly slide the new foot peg on.

    Using hairspray on the R75/5 here, I sometimes need a mallet to get the footpeg rubber fully seated.

    For me, filling the grip or peg with lacquer thinner or in desperate times, gas from a fuel line and slip it on...........God bless

    When YOU are in N.W. Georgia, find your way on Hwy 136 outside of Calhoun, to my mountain top. Camp or RV awhile up on top of the hill and find the peace that I do..........God bless

    I've never done footpads but I've always used hairspray for grips.
