PP Rear Peg Sliders

Instructions say remove the 'retaining clip', how do you do this? Is it just a case of prising the bottom one out with a small screwdriver or similar, or is there a particular method?

I just put these in last night. What a royal pain in the ass. I couldn't get the retaining clip out with the footrest brackets and silencer on the bike, so I had to remove the silencer, remove both brackets, then the retaining clips were easily accessible. But the fun didn't stop there. The bolt is pressed in firmly, so I had to put it on a vice to get the bolts out.

If you can get these things on without removing anything you deserve an award.

****, thought that might be the case!! Whoever provides these 'instructions' needs to have their balls put in a vice! Dont think I'll bother then tbo, it should be a 5 min job, not a lesson in poor engineering!

Piece of cake. Small electricians screwdriver get the circlip off.
Parallel pin punch and small hammer to get the pin out.
Doubt it took me a minute each side.

Hi barbagris, I noticed that there are two retaining clips, did you remove just the one to the rear of the bike or both? And which way did you drift out the pin, drifting from the front of the bike side or the rear of the bike side?

TIA

From rear towards front. The pin is toughened so you will need a good drift punch,

So I'm thinking then for whatever reason the 2019 bike has 2, even more pain! I wish they would update the fitting info, even online. I bought the R&G Rad Guard, and I was asked modified or non modified radiator, I was assuming (ass makes and u out of me and you) as I'd never modded my radiator that I was non modified, when they should really have said have you a 2018 or 2019 model year 790
