Foot pegs corrected

Postby challman » Wed Mar 02, 2011 6:57 am



I feel a little silly but.
I am getting rid of the running boards on my 83 gl1100I. I have looked in the 2 different manuals, and all over the internet, but I just can't find any pics or docs which show how they actually mount. Can someone help me? Maybe a closeup of their pegs on origional mounts? Anything?

this may be obvious to me once I tear the old stuff all off, but still.

The stock pegs have a little nob or something on the end which looks like it goes against something to prevent the pegs rotating on their (BOLTS?)

Help Please!

You won't find them in the Honda manuals, because there are no Honda highway pegs - they're all aftermarket, and as such will attach differently. Most of the ones I've seen just clamp on the crash bars.

Hm, I've don't know if I've actually seen a set of those, come to think of it! Virtually every 1100 I see has foot boards.

They bolt right in and there is a little dowel like piece that the nob locks into. I think the picture tells the story. Not sure how to post the picture. Send me your email address and I will send you a picture.

Did you get your picture yet? Some sellers on ebay have them and you can go to honda dealerships web page and look at them on the microfish... I yanked the running boards off my GL1100i and got the stock pegs so I have more options to put my 29 inseam legs on the ground. Saved a few pounds too!

Yes I did get the pictures thank you very much for that. It helps immensely being able to see a picture of what you're thinking about. I am getting ready to go in and have surgery today so I will be the offline for a few days. Thank you very much for information.

Thank you for posting this as I am debating going to the stock pegs. I have Markland floorboards and unfortunately when younger had an R5c Yamaha. Every now and then I drag the floorboards around a corner which I find disconcerting.
If my situation doesn't improve here in Michigan, I'm considering going out to San Francisco to spend some time with my daughter and quite frankly, these boards just ain't going to hold up there north of the Golden Gate. Perhaps more appropriately, the boards may hold up but my body won't.

I wish the pegs were a little more forward.
