I replaced the stock rider footpegs with custom billet ones, and after 100 miles of riding, I decided that the stock footpegs were more comfortable and were more, well, sure footed. My problem is, how do you re-install the stock footpegs? The placement of the spring and keeping it in place while inserting the pin. is giving me a problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated by this old timer. P.S. I'm no wrench,

I'm sure there's a way to keep that spring in place, but I sure don't know how to do it. If I were you, I'd buy a set of wider foot pegs from Kuryakyn. They have a large selection and the set I bought is more comfortable and sure footed than the stock pegs.

I bought the skull, but I wish I would've bought the spider.

Oh yeah. There are some very helpful people on here. Once the smart ones read this thread, they'll be all over it to help you. :D Again though, if you want sure footedness, I would highly recommend a wider peg. That's the only reason I bought a new pair. As I said, Kuryakyn has a nice selection and IMO are good quality. I was surprised at how heavy my pegs were when I first picked them up.

I dont want to uninstal my pegs and try reinstalling them, But with dealing with some stubborn springs in the past maby compress them in a vice, then zip tie or safety wire them then put them in and cut them open. You could try finding a nice prying point to and try seating them that way

If I can remember correctly, push the spring into the peg, the pin is going to go thru the spring coil. Push the peg, with the spring inside of it, into the mount and insert the pin thru the mount, peg and spring, if you have a drift pin, it can be used to align the spring with the hole(s) from the other side. Put on the washer and replace the cotter pin. This may help Ohio, Florida, Honda, Parts, Accessories, dealer, Honda Direct LIne

Thanks Clueless, I know the pin goes through the spring. The spring has to be positioned inside the peg correctly in order for there to be tension on the peg. I'm assuming the 2 open ends of the spring face the bike. I'm sorry, but its hard to explain.

Correct, the link I inserted was a page of the parts break down, shows the position of the parts in relation to each other,

Should be easy to replace the stock foot pegs, BTW... just go to CruiserCustomizing.com and they have a video on a lot of those pegs they sell and just reverse the logic on them. Also, check out the other post I just made about the Swingwing pegs...

The spring side that you want to push in is the one with the flat angle on it... or parallel to the inside of the peg... also, the other, straight end faces down...
