Pillion Pegs

Post  NZspokes on Tue 02 Oct 2012, 6:30 pm

To cut a long story short my girlfriend was in a serious motorcycle accident a while back. She is determined to at least be able to pillion on my Bandit. She suffered a bad pelvis injury. She wont be able to use the stock pegs as they are to high and back.

Question is can I make the pillion pegs wider than stock? I remember seeing Gus? had moved his down and forward which is cool but would wider be ok? I cant see why not but open to ideas.

Im sure making some sort of spacer wont be too hard. Im happy to give it a go for you, if you dont have the equipment etc.

That was me who moved the pillion pegs down. When you do this they do seem to go out away from the bike further too.

I like the idea. I will see what her mobility is like and make something similar to suit.

Sure is mate, she got pretty beat up. But we are 8 days off her taking weight and maybe standing again.

Well after all this time she has not long started pillion work again. She is strong enough to do it. Looking at a K4 this weekend that I will need to mod a bit to work. 

But may be in the Bandit club again soon.

Lowered the pegs using the Ross system. Works well. Couple of other small mods and a re-made seat and we will be good. Got a great local seat maker.

Did 250ks on it last night 2 up with my learner group. It runs very well. Much more comfortable than my Superhawk all be it somewhat less precise. Seat is nasty, much sore butt. Fueling is perfect. Easier to see what the L platers are up to. Had to teach some line correction stuff.

All in all stoked with it.

Fitted hot grips tonight. Yes im soft.

Ive now fitted a Busa shock and re-valved the fork. Fork had 20w fluid in it. So fitted heavier springs and 5w oil. 

Its now a very good ride. Sags are bang on. Next fork service I will change the rebound stack but thats about it. 

Next week the seat will go in to be done.

Nice work, Spokes. 
Sounds like you are well on the way to having a sorted bike. 
For me, that's half the fun of bike ownership.  
The other half being the twisties and another half being the open air and another half the comradery another half the freedom,  lane filtering, bugs in the face, the smells of a country road, the noise, blah blah blah
I like bikes. Smile
