SOURCE: How to remove and replace 2007 Harley sportster

The stock pegs have a steel core and are removed by unscrewing, they are almost always damaged beyond reuse upon removal, because the tool (ViseGrips) needed for removal has to bite down to the metal core to unscrew them. Or you could do as you are thinking, cut off the rubber to get at the steel peg and put a ViseGrip on it to unscrew it. They can be tight BTW.

If you are talking about the front foot peg. Take the screw that holds the peg to the mount out. Inside the mount you will see an allen that tightens the mount to the shaft you will need to tighten this allen. Then put the peg back on and your done.

How to tighten passenger peg on harley


Take peg off and tighten torx or Allen head bolt in the frame stud. If peg itself is quite loose the wave washer may be gone or the part is too worn and you need new one(s). You may need a special long ratchet attachment to access the head of the bolt.

There's a pin that holds the foot peg onto the foot peg extension. Take the clip off the backside of it and remove the pin. The foot peg will come off.

Trying to get right side foot peg case off foot peg seems to have a nut behind case not sure how to get off


Yes there is a nut on the backside of the stud that the peg mounts to. The stud is also the shaft for the rear brake pedal. To get to the nut, take the master cylinder loose and the snap ring that holds the rear brake pedal on or the remove the pin from the brake pedal. Now, take the large nut below the peg and brake pedal shaft off and the other two bolts that hold the front sprocket cover on. Remove the cover and you can get to the nut.

Good Luck

How do i install foot pegs on a 2005 sportster 1200 custom


Unless they've changed something that I don't know about, simply remove the pegs that are on the bike now and replace them with whatever type of pegs you want.

Now, if your bike is equipped with forward controls and you are wishing to install a set of mid mount foot pegs, you will need to purchase the foot peg mounting pieces. You need to go to a dealership, look at the parts manuals, and order the parts you need from them. Or, you could look around at a swap meet and possibly find the parts you need used. By doing this, you would have both mid mount and forward controls. Just make sure there is no interference with any linkage for the rear brakes or shifting. I have not done this particular job on a Sportster but have done it on a Dyna Wide Glide once. Turned out nice but the control linkage is different on a Sportster.
