OEM FOOT PEGS

Post by guitarzan » Wed Oct 05, 2016 1:29 pm



Hi,
I took off my floor boards and heel toe shifter and I have a new set of the OEM Foot Pegs and I'm having a hard time getting the spring that goes with each one installed. For some reason when I put the pin in that hold the foot peg to the frame, the spring isn't working holding the foot peg down?

Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks
Frank

Nobody knows yet? I thought it would be simple. Put the spring in the peg slide it into the frame support! When I do the spring wont push the foot peg down. I'll be watching for a response. Thank you all so much. I love this site.

A picture is worth a thousand words. How about a picture explaining your plight? At the moment I am unsure of what the specific problem is.
If you put the spring in wrong, it will not do the job it is supposed to do. Try to put it in the opposite of how you have it in when it is not working.

Never mind ..... I see what you mean now ...... I had forgotten how I took them off.

I looked for my originals, I know I have them someplace ..... with springs, just could not locate them. It looks to me like it would not be too hard to figure out the spring though to do what you need .... and as I recall, the spring goes within the footpeg and mount .... as in not visible from casual observation. I think maybe the 90 degree turned end rest against the peg end and the straighter end towards bike .... but without them here in front of me, hard to say for sure. I feel pretty sure though that the ends go towards top.

Here's a pic off Ebay

Yes, that's just what I have. I looked on partzilla the diagram is under GL1500SESTEP the spring goes into Part 3 the bar step. the ends point out. When I insert the bar step into the frame mount of the bike it works, the spring pushes down on the foot peg. However when I put the part 2 pen step pivot into the bar step I have to kind of knock the pin in with a hammer. At that point, the spring stops working for some reason. I'm puzzled. Any help you can give will be really appreciated.

Here's the site and page of the diagram.

Bamb! I got it.....! I don't know but I lubed up the pin and that darn thing went right in and the spring is putting pressure to keep the Foot Peg down. I think maybe the pin was knocking the spring sideways until I lubed it up with a dry silicon spray.

Thank you all
You're all the best
