Adjustable Footpegs Installation

Adjustable footpegs add a degree of versatility to foot and leg placement. The pegs can be adjusted lower for more leg room and comfort or higher for a more aggressive position and greater ground clearance. Fore/aft positioning options are also provided. These pegs are not foldable like the stock pegs and may serve as sliders in the event of a crash. Race bikes use fixed pegs to guard against the possibility of the foot being trapped between a folding peg and the chassis. Fixed pegs should grind down easily if they contact the road surface and should not cause the feared 'jacking' of the bike that would result if a peg were to touch down.

I installed the Lockhart-Phillips Super Pole V-360K Knurled Adjustable Pegs, Part # 109-4920 in Silver. They also come in blue and hard-anodize.

The price of the pegs from Lockhart-Phillips is $59.95. They are a little cheaper from Arizona Motorsports at $53.96. The alternate milled pegs models (V-360M) are about $10 more expensive (see the bottom of this page for a photo of these).

These are the installation instructions provided with the pegs.

To install the pegs the bike should be on the centerstand.

Remove Footpeg Assemblies from Bike:

Remove Stock Footpegs from Assemblies:

For both the clutch and shifter footpeg assemblies, place them in a vice and remove the 8 mm attachment bolt (M10 thread). Don't lose the wave washer, you will need to reuse it.

Attach New Footpegs to Assemblies:

Apply a little grease to the bearings of the shifter and the brake.

The stock bolt is too long to work properly with the new footpegs. I used three spacing washers to reduce the length inserted as it is screwed in to the new pegs. A 1/2" serrated lock washer is first, then two stainless washers. The ID of the washers must be 7/16" to fit on the bolt.

Attachment of the new footpegs is easier if you disassemble them first. It is tricky to match the flat portions of the two brackets, insert the wave washer, and hold the shift lever or footpeg in place as you try to install the large bolt with the spacing washers. Try to minimize the rounding of the soft aluminum flat portion of the new footpeg bracket as you try to hold it in place and turn the large bolt. Be careful to install the shift lever and brake pedal in the correct orientation so it reinstalls on the bike properly. Tighten the bolt securely (55Nm, 40 lb-ft), use some loctite.

Reinstall Footpeg Assemblies :

Reverse the disassembly procedures to reinstall the footpeg assemblies. The bracket plate bolts should be torqued to 30Nm, 22 lb-ft. Use a little blue threadblocker on the bolt threads for extra security.

You may have to adjust the shift lever after positioning the shift side footpeg to the desired position. Similarly you may have to adjust the brake lever and stoplight switch after installing the brake side footpeg.

Adjusting the Pegs:

Use a 5 mm Allen wrench to remove the center screw and height adjustment bracket. Reposition the height adjustment bracket on the center bracket with the many pins aligned for the desired height. There are twelve possible positions for height and fore/aft positioning. Reinstall and tighten the screw. The pegs rotate so that the knurled portion faces up. Loosen that screw with the same Allen wrench, turn the peg, then tighten the screw.

Unfortunately, Lockhart-Phillips now reports this as a discontinued item. The reasons are unknown and it is surprising as this was by all accounts a very popular accessory.
