Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

pillion pegs

Post by jerryfudd on Thu 06 Nov 2014, 11:31 pm

Just curious if anyone has grinded off the mounts for the pillion pegs and how it turned out?

I'm about to get the hangers powder coated and have no interest in carrying a pillion and personally id like to loose the pegs but don't want to switch to racing sets.

Same here. Getting rid of them/her isn't really an option Smile (boom boom)

To answer your question:

I haven't seen anyone cut them off either, but I suspect that a suitably placed angle-grinder or hacksaw will make light work of them - I believe they are only aluminium.

If you tidy up the cut off end suitably, once they are powder-coated no one will notice they aren't standard.

My 1st cb had the right pillion peg & bungee triangle cut off just behind the exhaust mount & it worked fine if not carrying a 2 legged pillion (the left hanger was standard!).

On the left you could get away with cutting just behind the front peg.


Personally I'd only bother if I was also running a single seat conversion & even then I'd want a spare complete set just incase I changed my mind about carrying a pillion or decided to sell.

thanks - I've actually got 2 single seat cowl covers.... my wife hasn't ever and won't ever ride pillion and as much as I'm close to my friends pillion on a CB is a little too close Smile

oh, and I'm not selling Smile

Haha, all my chums like to get on for a cuddle. You should have seen when two of us rode from Nottingham to Derby 2 up on his CG125!

ha! not a whole lotta room for personal space on that.

All the parts are being dropped off tomorrow and I've failed to
do anything about the unwanted pillion pegs so guess they are staying for just a little bit longer
