Last night I planned to install the passenger foot pegs. My dealer had left them off and gave them to me in a box when I picked up the box. I didn't mind this because I think it looks much better without the passenger foot pegs. And I figured it would be easy for me to put them on and then take them off later. My girlfriend wants to go for a ride today, so I figured I'd put them on last night.

However, I ran into a problem. For those who end up needing to install them, I'll give you some info. If you need to take them off then it's basically the reverse.

You connect the 2 sets together using the 2 small bolts that are provided. then you end up with with the passenger footpeg assembly (like I have in the picture attached). This assembly is connected to the bike with the 4 larger hex head bolts provided. Two of them go into the bike just behind the exhaust heat shield into the undertail. Two of them go into the bike through the heat shield. There are spacers between the heat shield and the undertail. After you remove the spacers, the assembly slides into the gap that is left from the spacers. Without the passenger footpeg assembly installed, there are 2 bolts existing that go through heat shield, through the spacers, and into the undertail. I have pictures attached of the spacers and of the bolts. As you can see in the picture that I attached the hex head on one of them is rounded out. I got the other hex head bolt out. But I cannot remove the rounded out hex bolt.

So, I think I'm going to need to go to the dealership today to have them install the passenger footpegs. All I really need them to do is remove that one bolt. I'm assuming that they should do it right away and without charging me anything. I'll let you all know how it goes.

Make the GF get her own bike and leave the foot pegs in the garage where they belong! That's what I did!
After 1 ride and some pictures she's pretty much done riding on it. She likes to ride on the back of my Concours (sport touring bike). After 10 minutes on the 959 she said it was like riding on rocks.

Compared to a touring bike? Yea, the Panigale would feel like she's riding on rocks but that means if you ever change out the seat for something more comfortable you'll be needing those foot pegs again. :grin2:

I second that!

I suggest you get her to go do the course and get a license then just pick up a pre owned monster 696 for her birthday. Problem solved.
The plus side to that is she now understands the bike life and might surprise you with something she knows you'll like for the bike or to do with your gear ;)
